PREVIEW: Football matches across Cornwall this weekend


Falmouth Town return to the South West Peninsula league after back-to-back Cup weekends. They face a trip to Priory Park to face Bodmin Town who they have already beaten twice this season.

You can read City Manager Andrew Westgarth’s thoughts on the game here. Town have won every league game they have played in the league so far this campaign.

In other matches, Penryn Athletic starts life without leaving manager Harry Pope with a tricky trip to Dobwalls. Pope announced his departure earlier this week and the latest player transfers see midfielders Adam Williams and Bradley Leivers also leave the club, heading to St Blazey and Newquay respectively.

There is a new face at the door for Penryn with Tyreece Galloway coming from Wadebridge. Penryn won 3-2 last time out with a late winner against Penzance to send them into the top ten, their opponents are fifth in the table.

Wendron could claim seven straight wins if he wins all three points at St Blazey. A win would propel Dron into second place in the table based on the other top-of-the-table clash between Liskeard Athletic and Camelford.

South West Peninsula League schedule:
Town of Bodmin v Town of Falmouth
Dobwalls v Penryn Athletic
Launceston v Godolphin Atlantic
Liskeard Athletic v Camelford
Penzance AFC v Wadebridge Town
St Blazey v Wendron United
St Dennis v St Austell

Helston Athletic will be hoping to steady the ship when they travel to Ilfracombe Town in the Stoolstation Western League. Their narrow 0-1 loss at home to Bridgwater United last Saturday means Steve Massey’s Blues are now four consecutive defeats, who then fell to seventh in the table.

Their opponents Ilfracombe are one place and three points above them, which only adds more spice to what could be one of Athletic’s most vital games of the season.

Elsewhere, a win for Mousehole could put them in second place depending on other results. They face Buckland Athletic who are ninth in the table at Trungle Park.

Toolstation Western League Schedule:
Ashton & Backwell United v Clevedon Town
Bitton v Exmouth Town
Brislington v Bridport
Ilfracombe Town v Helston Athletic
Keynsham Town v Tavistock
Millbrook vs. Street
Mousehole vs. Buckland Athletic
Wellington v Shepton Mallet

At St Piran League West, bottom-placed Porthleven know a win could lift them up the table if they beat fifth-placed Hayle. Falmouth City Reserves are in action as they host Wendron United at Bickland Park.

Wendron United Reserves take on league leaders Illogan RBL who have lost just once this season. Helston Athletic Reserves could join Mousehole Development on 25 points if Mousheole lose and Helston beat Perranwell.
