Cup round-up


St Newlyn East knocked St Columb Major out of the KMD Developments KO Cup 2-1 in a delayed first round tie.

St Columb only had a bare 11, but they took the lead in the 30th minute through Dave Rabone. As the game progressed Newlyn put the hosts under intense pressure and as legs tired they gained their reward.

Liam Richardson levelled the tie in the 79th minute and four minutes later Liam Dent struck to give Newlyn victory.

St Breward booked a home quarter-final tie in the Bodmin Sports Trophies League Cup after a 4-0 defeat of Queens Rangers.

Both teams played decent football despite a very heavy pitch, but the home team progressed with Martin Jago scoring a brace and Dan Walsh and Kelvin Tootle getting a goal apiece.

St Breward will meet Gerrans & St Mawes United in the last eight after a lone Glyn Hitchings goal gave them victory at St Teath.

Premier Division


Fowey United moved closer to the Premier Division top two after crushing St Cleer 7-1 with Sam Marchant hitting a hat-trick.

Jamie Martin added a brace with Josh Frampton and Anthony Hillman completed their scoring. James Colwill scored the visitors' consolation.

At the other end of the table Bodmin Saints won a crucial relegation encounter at St Mawgan 5-2. New signing Luke Jefferies scored a brace with another debutant Welch also finding the net.

Shaun German and Krzysztop Kruszewski completed the visitors' tally with Chris Williams and Chris Leach replying for St Mawgan.

Division One


Robbie Spencer was a hat-trick hero as Looe Town beat Week St Mary 6-5 in an amazing game.

Matt Barton, Tom May and Matt Anderson were the other home scorers with Steve Short and Rob Pearce hitting a brace apiece for Week and Ben Smeeth getting a single goal.

St Dennis picked up three crucial points in their battle to avoid relegation from Division One after beating third-placed Godolphin Atlantic 2-1.

Scott Hill and Ryan Hayhurst scored for St Dennis with Ben Colquhoun replying.

Pelynt move up to third after goals from Liam Jones and Damian Mutton gave them a 2-0 win over Altarnun.

Division Two


Foxhole are up to third in Division Two after a Jamie Robinson hat trick and a Sam Leaney goal gave them a 4-1 victory at Boscastle. Matt Pethick hit the home consolation.

Most clubs are well behind in fixtures but that's not the case with AFC Bodmin who, after their 4-2 win over Premier Sixes, have only five league games left to play.

Mike Horne and Andy Seymour scored a brace apiece with Josh Mitchell also hitting a brace for the visitors.

Division Three


Holywell/Cubert Athletic suffered a setback to their Division Three promotion hopes after being held 3-3 at home by bottom club Callington Town.

The visitors, still seeking a first win of the season, will view this as their best performance of the season with Jordan Swinney hitting a brace and Will Smith adding a further goal.

Holywell, who missed many chances, replied through Josh Busby, James Nettleton and an own goal.

St Minver take over at the top after a 3-0 home win over one of the other promotion chasing teams, Stoke Climsland, and will take some stopping throughout the rest of the season.

Sam Cleave, Paul Dingle and Jason Northcott were the scorers.

Lanivet Inn eased away from the relegation zone after a 3-1 win at Camelford. Elliot Hepples scored a brace with Sam Goodswen adding a further goal. John Starkey replied for Camelford who remain in danger.

Delabole United and St Stephen drew 3-3. Delabole's scorers were Ryan Terry, Josh Bluett and an own goal with Jason Prynne, Dean Yelland and Matt Spry replying.

Division Four


St Neot are up to second in Division Four after defeating Torpoint Comrades 4-1. Dan Chapman, Martin Hodge, Adam Gregory and Nathan Berry were the scorers.

Tintagel and Mevagissey reserves drew 2-2. Shaun Keeble continued his fine form for Tintagel with a brace taking him to 19 goals for the season. Mevagissey replied with goals from Sam Blount and Dan Brady. Wadebridge Town put a disappointing run behind them to defeat Gorran with Adam Bennett scoring the only goal of the game.

St Cleer reserves are deep in relegation trouble after a 3-1 home loss to Gunnislake reserves.

Kyle Tamblin scored for St Cleer, but goals from Martyn Sampson, Jamie Dewdney and Wayne Stephens gave the visitors the points.

Division Five


St Merryn and Pelynt reserves shared eight goals in a cracking Division Five encounter where the visitors gained their point from the penalty spot.

The game was played in a very sporting manner and could have gone either way with the result always in doubt. St Merryn scorers were Kevin Allen with a brace and a goal apiece from Richard Hughes and Mike Shearer.

Nathan Smallman scored a brace in reply with Andy Pollard and Matt Baker also hitting the net.

Tregrehan Mills leapfrog Southgate Seniors into sixth place after defeating their opponents 3-2. Paulo Jorge, Eduardo Reis and Diogo Reis scored for the hosts with Dan Gregory and Alan Yendell replying.

St Columb Major reserves consolidated second place with a 5-0 win at St Newlyn East reserves although the home team were a little unfortunate not to get something from the game.

Dean Dingle scored a brace, his first goals for the club, with Luke Worrall also scoring twice and Paul Drinkwater completing the scoring.
