West Division Round Up

FRIDAY 17th AUGUST

SWP West: The West season is finally up and running as St Blazey started the new season with a 6-0 win over visiting Ludgvan at Blaise Park in this opening Friday Night contest. The visiting Hurlers have had two managerial changes during the summer, so getting to play was in itself a good starting point, whilst St Blazey will be delighted to pick up the maximum points.

MONDAY 14th MAY

SWP West: The very last league game of the season took place tonight with Porthleven running out 6-2 winners away at St Dennis, although neither sides finishing positions in the table changed with the result.

SATURDAY 12th MAY

SWP West: Ludgvan celebrated being runners up in their very first season at Step 7 with a final day 5-1 win from the long trip to Holsworthy, the Hurlers ending the campaign on 69 points, just 1 behind champions Millbrook. Ludgvan received the Runners Up Cup and Medals at the final whistle and will receive prize money of £750.

FRIDAY 11th MAY

SWP West: Millbrook clinched the West Division title after a tense 1-0 Friday night win over Plymouth Marjon at Jenkins Park. In front of a bumper crowd the hosts scored their 100th goal of the season to earn the 3 points needed for the title whilst the result means Ludgvan, who complete their season on Saturday, end their maiden campaign as Runners Up.

WEDNESDAY 9th MAY

SWP West: The West title race is not yet over as Ludgvan claimed a 3-0 win away at Porthleven tonight. The Hurlers win means that Millbrook need a win on Friday night when they host Marjon to win the title, failure to get the 3 points will give Ludgvan the chance to grab the title with a victory at Holsworthy on Saturday. The top two cannot be caught but Elburton Villa did claim 3rd place tonight as they won 5-0 at Dobwalls to move ahead of Mousehole who drop to 4th. Elsewhere Wadebridge Town finished their season with a 4-0 win at home to Holsworthy.

MONDAY 7th MAY

SWP West: Millbrook picked up the win that they needed to ensure at least a Top Two finish, and with Ludgvan who did not apply for promotion the only team that can catch them, Millbrook are promoted to the Premier (subject to FA dispensation etc), Millbrook were 6-1 winners away at Wendron United and can seal the title itself with a win at home to Plymouth Marjon on Friday night. They may have the title before then as Ludgvan travel to Porthleven on Wedsnesday night. Porthleven and Elburton Villa had both slim title hopes of their own but a 1-1 draw between them both at Gala Parc means neither can win the league, although they could both still catch Ludgvan for runners up. Mousehole finished their season with a 3-1 win at home to St Blazey but they may still fall back with other games still to be played. Likewise Liskeard Athletic are 5th after they finished their fixtures with a 3-2 win away at Wadebridge Town. Elsewhere St Dennis had a 4-2 win at home to Penzance and Holsworthy drew 1-1 at home to Plymouth Marjon. Bude Town are safe from relegation after they were handed the three points by an Illogan side who did themselves no credit by crying off today’s game and were deducted three points and depart the pyramid.

SATURDAY 5th MAY

SWP West: Millbrook climbed to the top of the table today after a 2-0 win away at Penzance and now know the title will be theirs if they can win the last two matches, away at Wendron on Monday and at home to Marjon next Friday. Ludgvan who had a requested weekend slip to 2nd but can still force Millbrook to win both games whilst only two other sides now have a mathematical chance. Elburton Villa can get to 66 points with two wins after an 8-1 thrashing of St Dennis and Haye Road today and Porthleven who had no game can get to 65, Porthleven are next in action on Monday when they face Elburton, and they also host Ludgvan next week ! Mousehole had a 3-1 win at home to Plymstock United today but that was not enough and they can now not finish in the top 2. Wadebridge Town climbed a place in mid-table after a 3-0 win at home to Dobwalls whilst at the bottom of the table both the bottom two played and won. Bude Town had a 3-1 win at home to Wendron United whilst Illogan had a 3-0 home success over St Blazey. On Monday Illogan host Bude with the visitors having to win to avoid the wooden spoon.

WEDNESDAY 2nd MAY

SWP West: The big match of the night was to have been Porthleven v Ludgvan, 5th versus 1st, but a lunchtime Referees inspection ruled Gala Parc out and the game has had to be re-arranged for next midweek. That left two of the outside chances clubs in action and they had mixed results. Liskeard Athletic saw their hopes of a Top 2 finish end with a 2-0 defeat away at St Dennis but Elburton Villa remain in the mix as they had a 3-0 win at home to Holsworthy which lifts them two places to 4th in the table. A further trio of sides also picked up wins with St Blazey beating bottom club Bude Town 4-2 at Blaise Park, Wendron United had a 3-0 success against Penzance at Underlane and Plymouth Marjon had a 1-0 away win at Dobwalls.

TUESDAY 1st MAY

SWP West: Only the one West game tonight but it still had a bearing on both ends of the table. Hosts Illogan fought back to draw 3-3 with Mousehole at Oxland Parc which was enough to lift Illogan back off the bottom of the table whilst Mousehole dropping two points means they can no longer catch leaders Ludgvan in their remaining games.

MONDAY 30th APRIL

SWP West: Only three games tonight but two of them featured the Top Two in action. Leaders Ludgvan played their final home game and signed off with a 6-0 win over Wendron United to stay 2 points clear of Millbrook who have a game in hand. Tonight Millbrook had a 2-0 win away at St Blazey to keep the title destiny in their own hands, St Blazey meanwhile drop out of the race as the defeat means they cannot now finish in the top 2. Elsewhere Plymstock United played their final home game and picked up a point from a 2-2 draw with visiting Holsworthy.

SATURDAY 28th APRIL

SWP West: With game running out the maths as to who wins what is meant to get easier, but today’s results certainly did nothing but muddy the waters further ! Two top of the table clashes saw Ludgvan come from 0-2 down to win 3-2 away at Liskeard Athletic which was enough to send the Hurlers back to the top of the table and be able to reach a maximum of 69 points. Previous leaders Millbrook saw their winning run ended with a 2-1 defeat away at Mousehole but Millbrook can still reach 70 points themselves. Joining Liskeard in missing out on making progress were Porthleven who surprisingly lost 3-4 at home to mid-table Holsworthy, a win would really have pushed the Gala Parc club right into the mix. One side who did gain ground however were Elburton Villa who had a 4-1 win at Haye Road over Wadebridge Town and they could well be the dark horses as they can reach 66 points, which is more than Liskeard, Mousehole and Porthleven. St Blazey had a 3-0 win away at Wendron United but their hopes are almost down to just maths now whilst St Dennis are now out of the race after being held to a goalless draw at home by Plymouth Marjon. Elsewhere Dobwalls climbed a place with a 3-1 win away at Penzance and to prove its an action packed division, Bude Town climbed off the bottom of the table with a 6-1 win away at Plymstock United which pushed Illogan to the bottom, thanks in part to their points deduction last weekend.

THURSDAY 26th APRIL

SWP West: Only one game in the division tonight but it may well have a huge bearing on the title as Elburton Villa beat Ludgvan 3-1 at Haye Road. The win maintains Elburton’s say in the race whilst also opening the door to other challengers with a big weekend of fixtures with four of the top 5 playing each other on Saturday.

WEDNESDAY 25th APRIL

SWP West: Tonight saw Millbrook become the latest side to climb to the top of the table after the Jenkins Park club moved a point ahead of Ludgvan with a 4-1 win at home to Dobwalls. Ludgvan in fact fell two places to 3rd as Liskeard Athletic also moved up, to 2nd place, with a narrow but important 1-0 win away at Plymstock United. Porthleven, in 4th, remain in the mix with a 3-0 win at home to bottom of the table Bude Town whilst away from the title race Wadebridge Town picked up 3 points from a 3-1 victory away at Wendron United.

TUESDAY 24th APRIL

SWP West: It’s almost a daily story that the lead changes hands at the top of the West table and tonight was no exception as Ludgvan climbed from third to top after a 3-0 win at home to local rivals Penzance. The Hurlers are now on 57 points, a point clear of Millbrook. Two of the sides on the fringe of the race met at Haye Road with Elburton Villa staying in the mix after a 3-0 win over visiting St Blazey whose title hopes are now all but over for the season.

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. Plymstock remain in danger as they are just 3 points off the bottom and now have no games in hand left on bottom side Bude Town.

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.

EASTER MONDAY 2nd APRIL

SWP West: Only one of the four scheduled West games was played today but at least Illogan were able to travel to play their away match at Bude Town. The basement hosts took the lead before the visitors levelled. meaning the spoils were shared after a 1-1 draw at Broadclose Park.

SATURDAY 31st MARCH

SWP West: Plymouth Marjon staged the final game of the Easter Ground Hop and had a crowd of 293 at The Campus to watch a game that saw visitors Millbrook come from behind to win 3-2 and climb back into 3rd in the table. In Saturdays only other West game, Illogan and Wadebridge Town shared the points in a rare 0-0 draw at Oxland Parc.

GOOD FRIDAY 30th MARCH

SWP West: Five of the Six scheduled West Games were played with only Holsworthy v Bude Town have to be re-arranged. The West table has a new leader as Porthleven climbed above the inactive leaders Ludgvan into pole position. Porthleven winning 4-0 away at Wendron United. All four other games saw title chasers winning and all four doing so on the road. 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. Dobwalls went down 4-1 away at St Dennis whilst Plymstock United lost 2-5 at home to Wadebridge Town.

WEDNESDAY 21st MARCH

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.

TUESDAY 20th MARCH

Walter C Parson Cup: Mousehole were knocked out of this years Walter C Parson Cup at the semi-final stage after they lost to Premier Division high flyers Tavistock by 2 goals to nil in the first semi final which was held at Newquay’s Mount Wise. Mousehole were the last non-Premier side in the Cup and they also have a Cornwall Senior Cup Final, and a Charity Cup Semi Final, to look forward to.

SWP West: The only scheduled West Division game survived the weather with Elburton Villa closing the gap on the promotion race places with a 3-0 victory away at Wadebridge Town. Villa remain in 7th place but have games in hand on most of the sides above them in the table.

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. St Blazey remain in 6th after they lost 1-2 at home to a Plymstock United side who were glad of the points to pull away from the foot of the table. The visitors have a number of last seasons squad, including player/manager Stuart Morgan, now at Blaise Park. St Dennis got back to winning ways with a 4-0 win away at an Illogan side who drop a place to 16th in the table, just one place above Bude Town who were beaten 1-2 at home by Penzance today.

TUESDAY 13th MARCH

SWP West: Two games in the division tonight and both saw score draws and both had late, late levellers. At Lux Park 2nd placed Liskeard Athletic hosted 3rd placed Millbrook with an end result of 4-4 after the visitors grabbed a stoppage time equalizer. The game also featured home striker James Lorenz scoring all 4 goals whilst the visitors Ryan Knight scored a hat-trick of penalty kicks ! At Bodieve Park, St Blazey led 2-0 against hosts Wadebridge Town at half time before the Bridgers scored twice in the second period, including a goal deep into added on time, to draw 2-2.

SATURDAY 10th MARCH

Walter C Parson Cup: It has been quite a Cup week for Mousehole as they followed up the midweek Cornwall Senior Cup Semi Final win over St Austell with a 2-1 verdict today at home to East Division side Teignmouth in the Quarter Finals of the league cup. The Trungle Parc club needed extra time before squeezing through 2-1 with a semi final to look forward to against Premier side Tavistock in ten days time at Mount Wise.

SWP West: Just two league games were played today with both ending in away day victories. Liskeard Athletic closed the gap on league leaders Ludgvan to just 3 points after a 7-1 win away at bottom of the table Bude Town whilst Wadebridge Town climbed a place to 12th after a narrow 3-2 win away at Penzance in the only other contest to survive the weather.

WEDNESDAY 7th MARCH

Cornwall Senior Cup: West Division side Mousehole are through to the final of the Cup after an extra time 3-1 giant killing win over Premier outfit St Austell. The tie was switched to Helston Athletics Kellaway Park and saw the two sides draw 1-1 and each have a player sent off in the normal 90 minutes before Mousehole sealed the win with two goals in the additional half hour of play. Mousehole will now meet Saltash United in Easter Mondays final at St Blazey.

SATURDAY 24th FEBRUARY

SWP West: A full programme of eight league fixtures today, with only bottom of the table Bude Town, as the odd side out, without a match. Leaders Ludgvan suffered just a second defeat of the season as they lost 0-3 at home to one of their title challengers as Liskeard Athletic left Fairfield with the points. The Blues also climbed a place to 2nd and are now just 6 points behind the Hurlers. Not only did Ludgvan lose, but this mornings secomd placed club, Mousehole, also dropped points as they were held to a 0-0 draw away at Dobwalls. Most of the title challengers did though collect maximum points with Millbrook leading the way with a days highest scoreline as the Jenkins Park club beat St Dennis 7-0. Porthleven had a narrow 1-0 win from the long trip to Holsworthy, St Blazey bounced back from a midweek defeat to beat Wadebridge Town 3-2 at Blaise Park and Elburton Villa had a solid enough 2-0 win at home to Penzance. Indeed away from the top 7 only a couple of teams picked up points, Dobwalls draw with Mousehole was matched by Wendron United and Plymouth Marjon who had a 1-1 stalemate at Underlane whilst Illogan had a very welcome 3-1 win at home to Plymstock United which saw the Oxland Park club leap-frog their guests into 15th place.

WEDNESDAY 21st FEBRUARY

SWP West: Penzance bounced back from a heavy defeat last weekend at Marjon to record a 6-2 win at home to St Blazey at Penlee Park tonight. The Magpies also jumped up three places in the league table to 9th whilst the visitors remain in 6th spot.

TUESDAY 20th FEBRUARY

Cornwall Charity Cup: Wadebridge Town are through to the semi finals of the Charity Cup after they defeated Combination League side Carharrack 2-0 under the Bodieve Park lights in the last of the quarter final ties. The Bridgers will now face fellow West Division side St Blazey in the last four on a neutral ground in early April.

SATURDAY 17th FEBRUARY

SWP West: Five of the seven scheduled West Division games were played today with only Holsworthy (waterlogged) and St Blazey (water leak) being postponed. Liskeard Athletic missed the opportunity to close the gap on leaders Ludgvan as they were beaten 1-0 away at an Elburton Villa side who climbed a place to 7th. Millbrook and Porthleven started the day in 3rd and 4th as they met each other at Jenkins Park but a 2-2 draw did not really help either clubs ambitions. The big winners today were Mousehole who not only beat Wadebridge Town 6-0 at Trungle Parc, but also climbed three places from 5th to 2nd in the table. The highest scorers of the day were Plymouth Marjon who had a 7-1 win at home to Penzance and the Student side climbs four places in the table as a result. Dobwalls gave themselves a much needed cushion over the relegation zone with a 3-2 win away at an Illogan side who remain in 16th position.

Devon Premier Cup: One of the outstanding quarter finals was played today with East Division side, and Cup holders, the University of Exeter beating the last remaining West Division outfit Plymstock United by an 8-0 margin to set up a semi final next month with Torridgeside.

SATURDAY 10th FEBRUARY

Cornwall Charity Cup: With none of the league games surviving the wet weather, the focus turned to the Charity Cup where five West sides were in action in three quarter finals that were completed today. St Blazey had an away trip to East Cornwall Premier side Polperro and the two outfits produced a nine goal thriller before St Blazey eventually won 5-4. The other two ties were all West Division affairs with Mousehole beating Penzance 4-0 at Trungle Parc in a West Cornwall Derby whilst Liskeard Athletic also had a 4-0 home win, in their case over visiting Wendron United.

SATURDAY 3rd FEBRUARY

Cornwall Senior Cup: West Division Mousehole pulled off a Cup shock in some style as the Trungle Parc hosts beat Premier Division side Newquay by a 5-0 margin. This may well be the first time they have reached the last four of the Countys main Cup and they will be certain to face another Premier side in the Semi Finals early in March.

SWP West: League leaders Ludgvan were rewarded for being able to stage the only West Division fixture of the weekend with a 2-0 win over Plymstock United. The Fairfield club have now pulled themselves 9 points clear at the top of the division and after reaching the halfway stage in their first season at step 7 they have notched 41 points from a possible 48.

SATURDAY 20th JANUARY

Walter C Parson Cup: West Division Mousehole booked a last eight tie at home to East Division Teignmouth after coming from behind to knock out Premier side Launceston 2-1 after extra time at Trungle Parc. They also picked up £300 in prize money for being the only West side to reach the last 8 of the Cup.

Cornwall Senior Cup: Millbrook finally played their outstanding County Cup tie but they exit the competition after going down 4-2 away at Premier Division outfit Newquay at the Peppermints Mount Wise head-quarters.

SWP West: Two West Division games survived the weather with Porthleven the highest team in action. The Fishermen won 2-1 away on the all weather pitch at Plymouth Marjon and climb two places to 4th in the table. Wadebridge Town are up a place to 12th after they won 4-1 away at bottom of the table Bude Town.

SATURDAY 13th JANUARY

SWP West: A full washout in the Division was avoided by Holsworthy as the Magpies were able to stage the only West Division league fixture so far in 2018, they were not rewarded for their efforts though as visiting Elburton Villa picked up the 3 points with a 2-0 win at Upcott Field which lifts Villa up 4 places to 8th in the league table. The one game played did also bring up the 50% mark of West games for the season with this being the 136th game in a 272 programme of matches.

FRIDAY 12th JANUARY

Cornwall Senior Cup: At the third time of asking holders Bodmin Town were able to play their 3rd Round County Cup tie with West Division St Dennis at Priory Park with the holders safely through to the last eight after an 8-1 victory.

SATURDAY 6th JANUARY

Cornwall Senior Cup: With no league games surviving in the West Division at least three clubs were able to play their 3rd Round County Cup ties.

Bude Town lost 2-8 at home to Premier Division side Saltash United whilst Penzance lost 5-1 away at another top flight club in the shape of Falmouth Town.
