Cornish football round-up – Monday, April 11

Southern League Premier South

Truro City kept their faint play-off hopes alive after recording a vital 2-0 win at home to Walton Casuals on Saturday. Will Dean and Rio Garside scored in either half as Paul Wotton’s side racked up their fourth consecutive win and moved to within five points of Weston-super-Mare – who they play on Easter Monday – in the final play-off place.

Bitton 0-4 Tavistock
Buckland Athletic 4-1 Street

Western League Premier Division

Mousehole’s hopes of a second successive promotion were dealt a body blow as they surrendered a two-goal lead, courtesy of a Callam McOnie brace, to draw 2-2 at Wellington. That result and wins for title rivals Tavistock and Exmouth Town mean Jake Ash’s side slip to third and are six points adrift of the table-topping Lambs.

Saltash United’s 
own fleeting promotion hopes are now over after they slipped to a 3-1 defeat at home to Shepton Mallet, while mid-table Millbrook went down 4-1 at home to Ashton & Backwell United.

Elsewhere, Helston Athletic drew 0-0 at home to Ilfracombe Town to stretch their winless run in the league to three games.

South West Peninsula League Premier West

Falmouth Town’s wait to be crowned champions goes on despite running out 4-0 winners at home to St Dennis. James Ward, Tim Nixon, David Broglino and Jack Bray-Evans did the damage for Town, but James Rowe’s late equaliser for Liskeard Athletic in their game at Wadebridge Town means Andrew Westgarth’s men must wait for another few days at least.

Second-placed Wendron United, perhaps with half an eye on their Cornwall Senior Cup final on Easter Monday, went down 1-0 at Dobwalls, while Mark Gusterson’s hat-trick saw Camelford eventually run out 4-1 winners over a stubborn Penzance side.

Elsewhere, Cam Bidgood and Zack O’Connor netted as St Austell won 2-0 at Penryn Athletic and Sam Hepworth’s sole strike earned Bodmin Town all three points at Sticker, while Launceston prevailed 2-1 in their derby date at Callington Town on Friday night.

Jack Adams’ solitary strike was enough for leaders Illogan RBL to see off Falmouth Town reserves at Oxland Park, with third-placed Mullion missing the chance to close the gap on St Day to two points after being held to a 1-1 draw at St Agnes.

Bottom side St Ives Town picked up their third win of the season at Perranwell, with Redruth United leapfrogging the Well into 13th after beating Porthleven by the odd goal in five.

The big winners on the day were third-placed Gunnislake and fourth-placed Torpoint Athletic thirds, whose respective victories over St Blazey reserves and St Teath mean they are both very much in the title race, with just four points now separating the top four sides.

South West Regional Women’s Football League Premier Division

St Austell’s title hopes are still very much in their own hands after a depleted Town side edged to a 2-1 win at Bishops Lydeard, with Charlotte Whitmore and Emily Clemes scoring the goals.

A win for current leaders Ilminster Town over Torquay United means it is as you were at the top, with the Somerset side one point ahead of the Lillywhites but having played two games more. That means two wins from their final three games will secure the title for Town.

Sunday (2pm)
Bishops Lydeard 1-2 St Austell

Sherborne Town 13-0 Bideford

South West Regional Women’s Football League Western Division

Much like St Austell in the division above, the Blues sit one point behind leaders Plymouth Argyle under-23s but with two games in hand, meaning five points from their last three games will be enough to be crowned champions.

Sunday (2pm)
Liskeard Athletic 4-1 Saltash United
