MONDAY 23rd APRIL
SWP West: Millbrook are the latest side to move to the Top of the West Division table after they won 3-1 away at Wadebridge Town tonight to edge ahead of their many rivals. The next highest placed team in action were St Dennis and they were held to a 1-1 draw at home by visitors Plymstock United, although St Dennis are still officially in the title race, they are now probably too far off to have a serious challenge. Holsworthy won the local Derby 2-0 at home to Bude Town, a real local match which is probably both clubs only real derby of the season. Illogan were back on the pitch tonight after forfeiting the weekend match and they picked up an away point too with a 2-2 draw at Wendron United.
SUNDAY 22nd APRIL
SWP West: Ludgvan have used a weekend double header to get their title hopes back on track as they collected another 3 points on Sunday afternoon to add to the Saturday win over Marjon. The Sunday contest saw the Hurlers hit visiting Dobwalls with an 8-1 win which pushes them back up three places in the table, level on points with leaders Liskeard Athletic.
SATURDAY 21st APRIL
SWP West: The Premier title race is all but over, in the East its a two horse race, but in the West its still anyone’s game! No fewer than eight of the 17 sides can still hold onto hope for it to be them with six of them winning again today. The big game of the weekend saw previous leaders Porthleven lose 1-0 away at a Liskeard Athletic side who replace them as league leaders with 54 points on the board. The other seven can all get to at least 61 points with the least likely now St Dennis who lost 0-1 at home to Millbrook today with them looking slight favourites now. The other four all kept up the pressure with wins as Mousehole beat Bude Town 2-0 at Trungle Parc, Ludgvan were 3-1 winners at home to Plymouth Marjon, St Blazey had a 2-1 win on the road at Holsworthy and Elburton Villa climbed a place after a 2-0 win at home to Wendron United. In fact only one side out of the top 8 collected any points with Dobwalls edging a 7 goal thriller to beat Penzance 4-3 at Lantoom Park which saw them climb three places to 11th in the table.
WEDNESDAY 18th APRIL
SWP West: A busy night of five West Division games with five of the eight title contenders in action. Of those four won to keep the race bubbling along and the one to lose, Ludgvan, were the one who had dropped the fewest points so far this season. Mousehole gained swift revenge on Ludgvan by beating them 2-0 at Trungle Parc less than a week after losing the reverse fixture. Porthleven are the new leaders as they climbed above inactive leaders Liskeard into a 2 point lead with a 5-1 win at home to Wendron United. Millbrook are now the side who have dropped least, and as such have the title in their own hands, after a 2-0 win away at Plymstock United in a cross-Tamar derby. St Dennis climbed a place after a 2-0 win away at Holsworthy with the only side to gain a win that is not in the title race being Penzance who had a 4-2 success at home to Illogan.
TUESDAY 17th APRIL
SWP West: With lots of teams playing both Monday and Wednesday it was a quiet night on Tuesday with just the one fixture. Wadebridge Town had a 3-0 win at Bodieve Park over Plymouth Marjon although neither side changed positions in the league table.
MONDAY 16th APRIL
SWP West: A very busy night of West Division action with 12 of the 17 sides on duty including all of the top 8. The West title race is the closest of the three divisions and tonights results did nothing to make the picture any clearer ! Leaders Liskeard Athletic were held to a 1-1 draw at home by lowly Holsworthy with a single point not being enough for the Lux Park club who have played more than their rivals. Ludgvan who looked as if they had been set for a strog challenge lost 2-1 away at St Dennis whilst Millbrook who also looked in good form had to settle for a 1-1 draw at home to an Elburton Villa side who are probably now too far adrift. At Blaise Park, St Blazey probably saw any hopes ended as they lost 2-5 to a Mousehole side who parted company with manager Kevin Richards after Saturdays defeat which looked to have ended their hopes, but tonight’s results may just have re-opened the door. One side who will be delighted with the latest set of results will be Porthleven who laboured to a 2-1 win at home to Illogan, but the three points takes full advantage of other sides slips. Elsewhere Dobwalls picked up a win from a 2-0 verdict at Lantoom Park over visiting Wendron United.
SATURDAY 14th APRIL
SWP West: The title race is starting to take shape in the West Division as Friday nights defeat for Elburton Villa saw them pushed back and this afternoon Ludgvan had a narrow but very important 1-0 win at home to Mousehole. The result for the Hurlers keeps them very much in the box seat whilst probably ending Mouseholes title ambitions. If Ludgvan are favourites then Millbrook would be next in a Grand National sweepstake as the Jenkins Park club beat Illogan 3-0 to climb two places to 4th with games in hand on all bar Ludgvan. Liskeard Athletic did their best to maintain pole position with a highest score of the day 8-0 win at home to Dobwalls and Porthleven are still in the mix after coming from behind to beat Wadebridge Town 4-1 at Gala Parc. At the foot of the table, bottom side Bude Town matched Plymstock who won on Friday night with a 2-0 win at home to St Dennis to remain just 3 points adfift and both Bude & Plymstock have now dragged Illogan back into the scrap at the bottom of the table. Elsewhere Holsworthy picked up all 3 points from a 3-1 win at home to Wendron United and Penzance also had a win on home turf with a 2-1 scoreline over visiting Plymouth Marjon.
FRIDAY 13th APRIL
SWP West: The Plymouth Derby at Haye Road had an affect on both ends of the table with promotion seeking Elburton Villa hosting relegation threatened Plymstock United and it was the visitors that moved 6 points clear of danger with a shock 2-1 victory. Elburton could have climbed to third with a win but remain in 7th spot after the defeat.
WEDNESDAY 11th APRIL
SWP West: Another twist in the West title race tonight with long time leaders Ludgvan who appeared to be sliding out of the picture, pushing themselves right back into it with a 3-0 win at home to 2nd placed Porthleven. Ludgvan jumped from 6th to 2nd in the table with games in hand on most sides around them including leaders Liskeard Athletic who had to settle for a share of the points from a 2-2 draw away at Penzance tonight. Elsewhere St Dennis picked up a 2-0 win away at Wendron United with neither side seeing their league position alter.
TUESDAY 10th APRIL
SWP West: Dobwalls gained an important three points as they pulled away from danger and climbed a place in the table after a 3-1 win over Plymstock United at Lantoom Park in the first 6.30pm kick off of the Spring.

SUNDAY 8th APRIL
SWP West: The first (but will not be the last) Sunday game of the season, saw Plymstock United host Wendron United a t Dean Cross with both sides having only been in action 23 hours earlier. Wendron United who had lost at Mousehole on Saturday collected the points with a 4-2 win whilst Plymstock suffered a second defeat of the weekend having lost at Bude on Saturday.
SATURDAY 7th APRIL
SWP West: The West division was least affected by the weather as only the games at St Dennis and Wadebridge Town were postponed leaving five matches still played. The top of the table is still wafer thin as just 5 points split the top 7 clubs with all still very much to play for. Mousehole made the biggest progress today with a 6-0 win at home to Wendron United lifting them two places to 3rd, ahead of St Blazey on goal difference with the Blaise Park club having a 2-0 win at home to Plymouth Marjon today. Ludgvan and Millbrook both fall two places each after they cancelled each other out from a 2-2 draw at Fairfield whilst Elburton Villa stayed in touch with a 4-2 win away at Penzance. At the opposite end of the table, bottom side Bude Town had a 1-0 win at home to next to bottom Plymstock United which cut the deficit in half from 6 points down to just 3.
FRIDAY 6th APRIL
SWP West: Liskeard Athletic have gone to the top of the West table, for 24 hours at least, after a 4-1 Friday night victory at home to Illogan RBL at Lux Park. The Blues are now 2 points clear of Porthleven although they have played two games more.

Liskeard Athletic reversed their game to Dobwalls and won 3-0 to climb into 2nd spot, Mousehole are up a place to 4th after a 4-1 win at Penzance, St Blazey are up a place to 5th following a 3-1 win at St Dennis and Elburton Villa remain 7th despite winning 4-2 away at Plymstock United in a Plymouth Derby.
TUESDAY 27th MARCH
SWP West: All three West Division fixtures were played tonight with half a dozen teams catching up on a previously postponed fixture. Liskeard Athletic missed the opportunity to go Top of the table as they were beaten 2-3 at home by Plymouth Marjon with the Student team warming up for this weekends ground hop fixture against Millbrook on Saturday evening. St Blazey and Elburton Villa were both looking to close the gap on the leaders but a 2-2 draw at Blaise Park was probably not enough for either club to be happy whilst St Dennis left it late, well into injury time, to grab a 3-2 win away at Wadebridge Town.
SATURDAY 24th MARCH
SWP West: The West Division was least affected by the weather with just Penzance v Liskeard a casualty with seven games being completed. Leaders Ludgvan lost for the 2nd time in a week as they went down 1-0 away at bottom of the table Bude Town in a shock result. The title race is wide open now with Porthleven now level on points with the leaders despite being forced to share the points in a goalless draw away at St Blazey. Mousehole saw their chances dented as they lost at home for the first time this season with Elburton Villa winning 1-0. The Plymouth side have been away from the leading pack but are closing in fact after impressive wins over the sides currently above them. Millbrook also benefited from results elsewhere as they climbed a place to 4th after a 4-1 win at home to Holsworthy. Illogan climbed two places and away from danger with a 3-1 win away at Plymouth Marjon, Illogan are above both Dobwalls and Plymstock United now, after both of those sides lost today.

SWP West: Three league games were played this evening as sides start to catch up on matches and the pick of the results was at Blaise Park where St Blazey, who were relegated from Premier last Summer, beat a Ludgvan side who were promoted from the feeder leagues by a 3-0 margin. Ludgvan remain top of the table but the result will give the chasing pack, of which their are many clubs, a lift. One of those clubs are Porthleven and they moved to within a point of the top after a 2-1 win over St Dennis at Gala Parc whilst further down the table Penzance climbed a place to 8th with a 4-2 win at home to Holsworthy.

SATURDAY 17th MARCH
SWP West: Six of the eight scheduled games in the division were completed this afternoon with just Elburton Villa and Wadebridge Town seeing games postponed. Leaders Ludgvan were due to have been at Elburton which gave Liskeard the opportunity to go top, but for the 2nd time in a week they failed to take advantage as they followed up the midweek draw with Millbrook with another high scoring score draw, 3-3, today away at Wendron United. Two sides in the chasing pack though did close the gap with Mousehole upto 3rd after a 3-1 win at home to Holsworthy and Porthleven up a place to 4th after a 3-2 victory at Dobwalls.

SWP West: Five of the seven scheduled games were played this afternoon with new boys Ludgvan the happiest as they enter Christmas with a 6 point cushion at the top of the table.

SATURDAY 16th DECEMBER
SWP West: Half of the scheduled West games survived the wet weather with the games at Liskeard Athletic (Friday night), Ludgvan, St Blazey and Wendron United all being postponed.

Basement dwellers Bude Town, at the 15th attempt, picked up a first win of the season with a 3-1 success away at Dobwalls.

Two of the chasing pack enjoyed away wins in Plymouth to remain in the hunt as Porthleven won 3-2 at Elburton Villa and St Blazey also had a 3-2 margin from their trip to Plymouth Marjon. Wendron United were involved in the lowest scoring game in the entire league today with a 1-0 win over Holsworthy at Underlane, but that 1 goal led to 3 points which in turn leads to a climb of 4 places in a tight table from 13th to 9th for the hosts. One game ended all square with Wadebridge Town and Plymstock United sharing the spoils from a 2-2 draw at Bodieve Park.
SATURDAY 2nd DECEMBER
Cornwall Senior Cup: Just four West sides progressed through to the last 16 of the Cup today, although St Dennis may yet join them but their tie today was postponed.

SATURDAY 25th NOVEMBER
SWP West: A full programme of eight West games today which all survived the weather and only odd side out Holsworthy not in action. With two exceptions, it was a day for the chasing pack, as 7 of the 9 clubs to gain any points are sides in the same top 7. This mornings leaders Ludgvan slipped a place to 2nd, on goal difference, after being held to a 1-1 draw by 7th placed Elburton Villa in the match of the day in the division. The dropped points allowed Liskeard Athletic to return to the summit which they did in some style with a 6-1 win at home to Wendron United. The sides in 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th all won though to keep the title race very tight. Millbrook in 3rd had a 4-2 win at home to Wadebridge Town, likewise 4th placed Porthleven had a 4-2 home win in their case a Gala Parc win over Dobwalls, 5th placed St Blazey had a 2-0 win away at Plymstock United and 6th placed St Dennis carrioed on their recent run of form with a 4-0 win at home to Illogan.

SATURDAY 11th NOVEMBER
SWP West: After a fortnight without league action, due to various cup matches, 12 sides got back into the bread & butter of the league today.

SWP West: Leaders Sticker lost their unbeaten tag this afternoon as the already Champions lost 1-2 at home to Plymouth Marjon who are having a great end of the season run. Sticker had gone 30 games without defeat before today. Elburton Villa moved a huge step closer to securing Runners Up as they won 3-1 away at Penryn Athletic which leaves Villa some 11 points clear of 3rd placed Plymstock United who lost 2-1 away at Wadebridge Town this afternoon. Millbrook are in 4th and just a point off the top three as they ran out 2-1 winners away at St Dennis. Illogan climbed two places and into the top half of the table as the Oxland Parc club beat lowly Penzance 3-1 whilst Liskeard Athletic climbed a place as they also won on home with a 2-0 Lux Park success over Wendron United. One game ended all square as Dobwalls drew 2-2 at home to Mousehole whilst one game was not played as Vospers Oak Villa failed to arrive at Porthleven, the circumstances of that are a matter for the league to investigate.
WEDNESDAY 5th APRIL
SWP West: This midweeks only league game in the division saw Holsworthy ensure their survival as the Magpies beat Dobwalls by a 4-0 margin at Upcott Field. The three points collected tonight means they are 17 points clear of bottom side Vospers Oak Villa who have just 5 games remaining.
Cornwall Charity Cup: Sticker will meet Penryn Athletic in this years final of the Charity Cup next month after the league champions came from behind to beat fellow West Division side Wendron United 3-1 in the second semi final which was staged at Helston Athletic who stepped in as hosts earlier today following floodlight problems at the original hosts Penryn Athletic.
TUESDAY 4th APRIL
Cornwall Charity Cup: Penryn Athletic booked themselves a place in the final of this years competition but only after a marathon cup tie with fellow West Division side Illogan. The tie which was staged at Porthleven required extra time before Penryn edged home by a 3-2 margin and can look forward to the final next month against either Sticker or Penryn Athletic who meet on Wednesday night, ironically enough, at Penryn Athletic’s Kernick Road ground.
SATURDAY 1st APRIL
SWP West: The West programme was down to just seven matches today, mainly as a result of clubs supporting Cornwall Youth, but the wet weather reduced it further after the games at both Penryn Athletic and Wendron United were postponed. With Champions Sticker without a match the highest team in action were Elburton Villa and they are now firm favourites to end the season as runners up after they won 6-0 away at Porthleven to move 8 points clear of their nearest challengers. Plymstock United retain 3rd spot but collected only a single point from a 2-2 draw away at Penzance whilst the only other Top 6 side in action were Mousehole who were also held to a draw, in their case 1-1 at home to Bude Town. Plymouth Marjon were the only side apart from Elburton to collect maximum points with the Students winning 2-1 away at Wadebridge Town, the Plymouth based club are having a strong second half of the season and climbed to their highest position of the season as they jumped three places to 7th, although with just two matches left they are unlikely to go higher. Completing the fixtures was Liskeard Athletic at home to Illogan, and that was the 3rd score draw from today’s 5 matches with a 2-2 scoreline at Lux Park.
TUESDAY 28th MARCH
SWP West: Tuesday night saw two floodlit encounters played in the West Division with Plymouth Marjon the happiest from the nights action as a late goal gave them a 1-0 victory away at Liskeard Athletic which pushes the Students up two places and into the top 10 of the table. Wadebridge Town had a 4-2 home success over visiting Mousehole with the maximum points being enough for the Bridgers to climb a place to 13th in the table.
SATURDAY 25th MARCH
SWP West: With the title already secured by Sticker, the race remains on for claiming Runners-Up and all the main contenders were in action today. Elburton Villa are the favourites and today they picked up a useful 4-2 win away at Illogan which moves the Plymouth club 6 points clear of their neighbours, Plymstock United, who fell to defeat for the second week running as they lost 2-3 at home to Wendron United who climbed an impressive three places in the table to 8th. Penryn Athletic who were 4th in the table were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Liskeard Athletic which allowed Millbrook to climb into 4th spot as the Jenkins Park club beat Wadebridge Town 2-1 at home. Sticker remain on course for an unbeaten season, which has never been achieved before, with a 4-1 win at home to last seasons Champions Mousehole. St Dennis climbed into the top half of the table after they beat Dobwalls 2-1 at Lantoom Park whilst at the bottom of the table two of the bottom three sides both collected much needed wins. Bude Town kept themselves out of the bottom two by winning 5-0 away at a Vospers Oak Villa side that are now 7 points adrift at the bottom, that was brought about by Penzance winning the “Battle of the Magpies” with a 2-0 success away at Holsworthy. The Cornish Magpies with 7 games to go are clear of 18th place but still some way from 16th place and assured safety.
SATURDAY 18th MARCH
SWP West: Sticker, the West Divisions undoubted best side this season, crossed the line this afternoon to officially become Champions after they beat Porthleven 3-2 at Burngullow Lane to record a 25th win from 29 outings, and remain undefeated as the other 4 matches were drawn. Elburton Villa kept up the pressure and are favourites for runners-up as they beat 4th placed Penryn Athletic 3-0 at Haye Road and also pulled clear of 3rd place as Plymstock United lost 5-3 away at a Dobwalls outfit that climb two places to 7th themselves. At the bottom end of the table Vospers Oak Villa were without a game but Penzance pulled away from them and closer to safety as the Cornish Magpies beat Millbrook 2-1 at Penlee Park. The Devon Magpies, Holsworthy, fell a place to 15th after they lost 3-1 away at Illogan RBL and the only other side to claim maximum points today were St Dennis who came from behind to beat Plymouth Marjon 2-1 at Boscawen Park. Two matches ended in score draws as Bude Town and Wadebridge Town collected a useful point each from a 2-2 draw whilst outgoing West Champions Mousehole drew 1-1 at home with visiting Liskeard Athletic.
TUESDAY 14th MARCH
SWP West: Two floodlit fixtures were played tonight in the West division with both host clubs victorious, and both pulling themselves further away from danger at the bottom end of the table. Wadebridge Town survived a late fightback from visiting Vospers Oak Villa to win 3-2 at Bodieve Park whilst Liskeard Athletic were able to leap-frog tonight’s opponents, Holsworthy, with a 1-0 win at Lux Park.
SATURDAY 11th MARCH
SWP West: Sticker are almost home and dry as West Division Champions despite being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Millbrook this afternoon. Sticker need just a point from their remaining games to be assured, but with a far greater goal difference than their rivals they can start tasting the champagne. Credit to Millbrook though as they became the first side since Dobwalls on the opening day of the season, to get a point at Burngullow Lane. The two sides who could stop Sticker were both in action with Elburton Villa climbing a place into 2nd spot after a 4-0 win away at Penzance whilst Plymstock United dropped points as they were held to a goalless draw at home to Liskeard Athletic. A trio of mid-table sides all had home wins with Porthleven leap-frogging todays visitors, Dobwalls, with a 4-1 win at Gala Parc, St Dennis had a 2-1 win from the visit of Wadebridge Town and Holsworthy also had a 2-1 home victory as they beat bottom side Vospers Oak Villa. Plymouth Marjon and Illogan served up six goals on the artificial pitch with the two sides collecting a point apiece from a 3-3 draw.
Cornwall Charity Cup: The two outstanding quarter finals were both played this afternoon with Penryn Athletic and Wendron United joining Illogan and Sticker in next months semi finals. Penryn were given a good test away at East Cornwall Premier outfit Polperro with the tie needing extra time before Penryn win 2-1 and WSendron United also had a 2-1 win, in 90 minutes, from their trip to fellow West side Mousehole.
SATURDAY 4th MARCH
SWP West: Four of the nine scheduled West games were postponed today with no games at Elburton Villa, Holsworthy, St Dennis and Wadebridge Town. That left five matches played but in fact only three sides were able to claim maximum points. Leaders Sticker came from a goal behind to beat Bude Town 4-1 at home and move closer to the title, they now need a maximum of just four points to be assured of the crown. The side that can push them the furthest are Plymstock United and they returned to 2nd place in the table this afternoon following a 3-1 win at home to 4th placed Penryn Athletic. The only other side to pick up all three points on offer was Liskeard Athletic who pulled further away from danger at the bottom with a 4-2 win at Millbrook. Two games ended in score draws with Mousehole and Porthleven drawing 1-1 at Trungle Parc whilst Penzance who remain in relegation danger collected what might prove to be an important point from a 1-1 draw at home to Dobwalls.
SATURDAY 25th FEBRUARY
SWP West: League leaders Sticker were given, by their standards at least, something of a fright today as they let in 2 goals before edging a 3-2 win away at Holsworthy to go within just 7 points of securing the title. Sticker had not let in more than a single goal in a league match since last October, when ironically they played Holsworthy at home, but today’s victory extends their lead at the top to a massive 26 points. Plymstock United who were 2nd in the table suffered a 3-2 defeat away at a Wendron United side who moved up two places to 7th which allowed Elburton Villa to climb into 2nd spot after they had a 6-0 home win over Mousehole at Haye Road. Penryn Athletic remain in 4th place after they beat bottom of the table Vospers Oak Villa by a 4-1 margin at Kernick. Millbrook are up a place to 5th in the table as they won 1-0 away at Dobwalls. At the danger end of the table, Vospers defeat keeps them bottom but only on goal difference from a Penzance outfit that saw their recent resurgence held in check as they suffered a 4-0 defeat away at a Plymouth Marjon side who have found some good form of late and who leapt up 3 places in the table to 9th, the first time they have been in the top half of the table. Penzance & Vospers also find themselves further adrift in the relegation zone after Bude Town had a 6-0 win at home to St Dennis today which leaves Liskeard in the last place of safety, but they were in cup action today and have games in hand on sides both above and below them in the table. One game ended in a draw with Porthleven and Wadebridge Town sharing the spoils from a 2-2 stalemate at Gala Parc.
Cornwall Charity Cup: One of the three outstanding Charity Cup last eight matches was played today with Illogan booking a place in the semi finals after a 2-0 win at home to Liskeard Athletic in an all West Division affair. Illogan will face either Penryn Athletic or Polperro in the semi finals in early April.
WEDNESDAY 22nd FEBRUARY
Walter C Parson Funeral Directors Cup: League Cup holders Bodmin Town had a straight forward passage through to the semi finals of this years competition as they beat West Division visitors, Mousehole, by a 7-0 margin at Priory Park. The visitors are to be commended for fulfilling the tie as they had to make changes to their line up following the exodus from Trungle Parc after their 3rd round win in this Cup. Many of their more recent signings were also cup-tied which added to the problems faced in just getting on the pitch.
SATURDAY 18th FEBRUARY
SWP West: A full programme of nine league games today with action at both ends of the table. At the very top the record books are being thumbed through after Sticker recorded another win, this time over 3rd placed Elburton Villa, by a 4-2 margin which brings up the 100 league goals scored landmark. Striker Jack Bowyer also claimed a hat-trick for the 5th match running, although one of those was in the Charity Cup so not counted in league records. The upshot of todays result, and a defeat for 2nd placed Plymstock United who lost 2-1 away at St Dennis, is that Sticker are a staggering 24 points clear at the top and just a maximum of 13 points from the title with still 9 matches to get over the line. The race at the foot of the table though is a lot closer. Penzance picked up a 2nd win on the bounce today with a 4-1 win away at Bude Town which was enough to get them off the bottom of the table, although only on goal difference, from a Vospers Oak Villa side who slip to last place after a 2-1 defeat at home to Wendron United. The bottom 2 still looks like being between Bude Town, Penzance and Vospers as sides above continue to pick up points themselves. Today Liskeard Athletic had a creditable 1-1 draw at home to 4th placed Penryn Athletic , Holsworthy also had a draw as they shared the spoils with reigning champions Mousehole with a 2-2 scoreline at Upcot Field and Plymouth Marjon followed up a home win last week with a 3-0 success on the road away at Illogan today. Elsewhere Millbrook cemented their top 6 place with a 3-0 win away at Wadebridge Town and Dobwalls climbed two places to 7th after they leap-frogged today’s opponents Porthleven with a 3-1 Lantoom Park victory.
SATURDAY 11th FEBRUARY
SWP West: The West Division saw seven matches today as it was least affected by County Cup ties and allowed 14 clubs to get back into league action after last weekends wash-out. League leaders Sticker remain an incredible 21 points clear at the top of the table after they beat Liskeard Athletic 4-0 at Burngullow Lane but their nearest rivals are now Plymstock United who climbed a place into 2nd spot after edging a nine goal thriller at Dean Cross. Plymstock won 5-4 against visiting Holsworthy and are now 2 points clear of Elburton Villa who slipped a place to 3rd after being held to a 2-2 draw away at Bude Town. At the opposite end of the table bottom side Penzance picked up a first win of 2017 as they won 4-0 away at Wadebridge Town and cut the deficit to just 3 points from 17th placed Vospers Oak Villa. The Weston Mill based club ended today pointless as they went down 1-4 at home to St Dennis who themselves needed the points to maintain a healthy gap over the drop zone, likewise Plymouth Marjon will have been relieved to pick up a maximum point haul from a 3-2 win at home to Mousehole to keep the Students out of danger. Elsewhere the middle two sides met at Underlane as 9th placed Wendron hosted 10th placed Dobwalls but by full time it became 9th placed Dobwalls to 10th placed Wendron United after the visitors leap-frogged their opponents with a 4-2 victory.
Cornwall Senior Cup: The West Divisions last representative in this seasons cup, Millbrook, bowed out at the quarter final stage today as they were beaten 2-4 at Jenkins Park by Premier Division visitors Newquay.
SATURDAY 4th FEBRUARY
Cornwall Charity Cup: Stickers efforts in getting their game on were rewarded in the end as the hosts came from two goals down to beat local rivals St Dennis at Burngullow Lane and book their place in the semi finals of the Charity Cup. With all other matches in all three divisions, as well as this cup, being postponed Sticker enhanced their reputation as the club that gets their matches on wherever possible. They will probably have a wait to find out who they will meet in the last four as the other three ties have had to be re-arranged, but the semi finals are not due to be played until April 4th & 5th.
SATURDAY 28th JANUARY
SWP West: A major shock in the West this week as leaders Sticker….. conceded a goal ! The runaway title favourites had kept an incredible 11 consecutive clean sheets dating back to last October but finally let in a goal today away at Wadebridge Town. Apart from that though it was very much business as normal as Sticker won 5-1 at Bodieve Park and coupled with the Penryn v Elburton match being postponed, Sticker are now some 21 points clear of the chasing pack. Plymstock United took advantage of the postponement at Kernick though as they moved up a place to 3rd in the table after winning 2-1 away at Liskeard Athletic. Fifth placed Mousehole finished January as they had started the month with a Home win over Holsworthy. Back on the New Years Bank Holiday they won in the Walter C Parsons Cup and the Magpies were back in town in the league today with the Trungle Parc hosts winning 4-1. Only two other sides picked up maximum points with Wendron United grabbing a late winner to claim a 2-1 victory away at St Dennis whilst Illogan had a 4-0 win at home to lowly Vospers Oak Villa. Three games ended in draws with a goalless stalemate at Millbrook who were probably glad to get back to playing after all their publicity this week, the Jenkins Park club drawing 0-0 with visiting Dobwalls. The other two draws both affected the relegation picture with the new look Penzance drawing 1-1 at home to another of the basement rivals in Bude Town. The Penlee Park club remain bottom but cut the deficit to 6 points whilst Bude pulled 5 points clear of danger themselves. Porthleven and Plymouth Marjon also played out a 1-1 draw with the visitors climbing a place to 14th and further from relegation danger whilst the Gala Parc hosts and the Students both completed their 25th league fixture of the season, just nine matches left for each – and 14 Saturdays of the season still to play them !
SATURDAY 21st JANUARY
SWP West: Runaway leaders Sticker maintained their 18 point gap at the top of the table as they got back to winning ways following last weekends draw at Plymstock. Sticker were back in Plymouth again today and had a 5-0 win at lowly Vospers Oak Villa to move onto 60 points from just 22 outings. Elburton Villa in 2nd kept up their challenge with an emphatic 7-2 win away at Dobwalls but 3rd placed Penryn Athletic lost ground after being held to a goalless draw away at Mousehole. Plymstock United remain 4th but have games in hand and look likely challengers for runners up and they did their chances no harm with a 2-1 win at home to Illogan this afternoon. Elsewhere Millbrook cemented their top six place with a 5-1 victory away at Wendron United and Holsworthy climbed three places to 10th after edging a 7 goal thriller at home to Wadebridge Town with the Upcott Field hosts winning 4-3. Two games ended in score draws with Bude Town moving a point further away from danger as they drew 1-1 away at St Dennis and both Plymouth Marjon and Liskeard Athletic needed the point they each gained from another 1-1 draw with each other on the artificial surface.
SATURDAY 14th JANUARY
SWP West: Five West games played today but only two of the ten sides in action gained victories! Three games ended in draws with leaders Sticker being held to a 0-0 draw away at Plymstock United. Sticker remain unbeaten with now 21 games played, but their run of 16 consecutive victories was ended by the Dean Cross club who, although a draw was a fair result, had chances to end the leaders unbeaten record. Two other games ended in draws with Bude Town picking up a useful point at the bottom from a 1-1 stalemate against visiting Wendron United and it was also 1-1 at Lantoom Park where hosts Dobwalls shared the spoils with visiting Plymouth Marjon. The only two winners were Penryn Athletic who had a 5-0 home romp over visiting Holsworthy and Wadebridge Town climbed four places to 9th as they carried on their recent good run with a 3-1 win away at Illogan. One game fell victim to the weather with Penzances trip to Liskeard Athletic being postponed.
Cornwall Senior Cup: Just three West sides were on Cup duty but only Millbrook are still involved after today’s results. Millbrook beat fellow West side Mousehole 4-1 at Jenkins Park to reach the last eight of the cup. Porthleven were also in cup action but they fell to a 2-1 defeat away at Combination League side Holmans.
SATURDAY 7th JANUARY
SWP West: If league leaders Sticker were not already title favourites then today’s results certainly pushed them into the unheard of territory. Already 14 points clear they beat 3rd placed Penryn Athletic 3-0 at Burngullow Lane this afternoon and also benefited from 2nd placed Elburton Villa losing for just a 3rd time this season as they lost 0-1 away at the improving Wadebridge Town. These results extended the gap at the top to some 17 points, which with goal difference is equal to 6 wins and they only have 14 games remaining ! The side who could push them the furthest are now 4th placed Plymstock United who with their games in hand could reduce the lead to 12 points after the Dean Cross club beat Millbrook 3-2 this afternoon. Whether that is close enough to be a title race may be answered in a weeks time as Plymstock host Sticker next weekend! Elsewhere a trio of sides won on the Road with Porthleven winning 3-1 away at Bude Town, Illogan had a 4-2 success away at Dobwalls and lowly Vospers Oak Villa had a precious 2-1 win away at cross Plymouth neighbours Marjon with the win pulling Vospers to within 2 points of safety and leaving inactive, on the pitch at least, Penzance some 7 points adrift at the bottom. Two games ended in draws with Mousehole picking up a point under their new management as they drew 2-2 at home to St Dennis whilst Wendron United and Liskeard Athletic, who both suffered heavy defeats over Christmas, earning their defensive spurs from a 0-0 draw at Underlane.
MONDAY 2nd JANUARY
Walter C Parson Cup: Crediton United pulled off the shock result of the round as the East Division side won 2-1 away at Premier Division high flyers Tavistock. Kyrton also earnt the full £400 prize for the furthest an East club has progressed in the competition this season. The West Division award and a further £400 was won by Mousehole who shrugged off the departure of player/boss Wayne Quinn to beat fellow West side Holsworthy 2-0 at Trungle Parc. Tiverton Town joined five other Premier sides in the last eight of the league cup today after they came from behind to win 2-1 away at fellow Premier outfit Helston Athletic. St Austell are also through but they were not required to kick a ball in anger as scheduled opponents Exwick Villa from the East Division forfeited the tie citing lack of players available.
SWP West: League leaders Sticker started 2017 by re-opening up a massive 14 point lead at the top of the West table and also extending their unbeaten league record to 19 games. Sticker were 4-0 winners away at Porthleven this afternoon in the first league fixture in any of the three divisions of 2017.
