Football in Cornwall this weekend: SWPL and Western League

There is a stellar fixture streak this weekend in the South West Peninsula League with seven games scheduled for the weekend.

At the top of the table, Falmouth Town welcomes Godolphin to Bickland Park. It is the first time Falmouth have been at home since Boxing Day when they beat Penryn Athletic 5-0 in front of 1,171 fans.

Falmouth come into the game after a 4-1 away win at Bodmin Town. Jack Bray-Evans, Tim Nixon, Luke Barner and James Ward were on Town’s scoresheet on this occasion. Godolphin, who are 15th out of 19 teams in the table, drew 1-1 with Launceston last time out. A win for Falmouth would be their 20th of 20 in their league this season.

There will be a tasty affair at Underlane as fourth-placed Wendron United take on fifth-placed Camelford. Dron tasted defeat in a 5-2 loss to St Blazey in their last game, a loss that ended a league-winning run that stretched back to early December.

Penryn, tenth, who has no manager, goes to Callington who is only one place below them. Both sides are tied on 26 points although Athletic have a valuable game in hand. Penryn were beaten 3-0 by Dobwalls in their last game.

Elsewhere in the league, second-placed Liskeard is absent at St Austell. The Dobwalls who are third are far down the St Dennis table.

In the Toolsstation Western League, Helston will be hoping to start after their Les Phillips Cup midweek win over Millbrook. The Blues produced a much improved performance to overcome a depleted Millbrook side.

Five straight league defeats have shaken Helston’s title charge as they slip to eighth in the table. On Saturday they are absent in 14th place Brislington, a win depending on results elsewhere could see them through to sixth.

Other Cornwall sides in the division see third place Mousehole take on Bridgwater at Trungle Park and Saltash are league bottom Bridport. Three points for Mousehole could put them level on points with second-placed Exmouth.

Ashton & Backwell United v Millbrook

Bridport v Saltash United
Brislington v Helston Athletic
Cadbury Heath v Exmouth Town
