Southern League Premier South

Truro City’s promotion hopes are over for another year after Paul Wotton’s side let a one-goal lead slip to lose 4-1 at Hartley Wintney. The White Tigers needed at least a point, but ideally all three, to keep their slim play-off hopes alive, and things looked good when Rocky Neal gave the visitors an early lead, but a second-half hat-trick from Lucias Vine confirmed another season at Step 3 for City.

Chesham United 4-2 Gosport Borough
Hartley Wintney 4-1 Truro City
Hendon 0-1 Farnborough

Yate Town 3-1 Kings Langley

Western League Premier Division

Mousehole kept their promotion aspirations alive with a vital 3-1 win at home to Cornish rivals Helston Athletic. With promotion rivals Exmouth Town and Tavistock also recording victories, three points was a must for Jake Ash’s side, and goals from Callam McOnie, Max Hill and Mark Goldsworthy ensured just that.

Saltash United came out on top in their own Cornish derby at neighbours Millbrook. Reece Thomson and Rubin Wilson scored for the Ashes, who re-enter the top five as a result.

SWPL Premier West

Falmouth Town were finally crowned champions on Friday as goals from Alex Wharton, Olly Walker and Jack Bowyer helped Andrew Westgarth’s side to their 28th league victory of the season at local rivals Penryn Athletic.

A second defeat of the season for Liskeard Athletic meant Town would have won the title even if they had lost their own game, with the Blues going down 2-1 at Dobwalls.

Matty Walker (2), Eli Evans (2) and Josh Margetts helped Godolphin Atlantic to a thumping win over town rivals Newquay at Mount Wise, while Callum Kenny and Olly Brokenshire sealed a 2-1 win for St Blazey at home to St Austell.

Elsewhere, Daniel Hocking and Sonny Dover scored for Sticker in their 2-0 win at St Dennis, Dan Jennings, Fin Harrison and Nathaniel West bagged Bodmin Town’s goals in their 3-0 win at Wadebridge Town, while Camelford received the points after Penzance forfeited their match.

St Piran League East

Saltash Borough are the new leaders after they took full advantage of previous table-toppers St Dominick’s postponement and won 1-0 at mid-table Sticker reserves to go two points clear with just two games left.

Saltash United reserves’ hopes of an unlikely title tilt are now mathematically over after they lost 2-1 at home to Polperro, with wins for Torpoint Athletic reserves and St Mawgan meaning only one point separates the third-placed Ashes and Bude Town in seventh.

Good Friday (11am)
St Mawgan 4-1 St Austell reserves

Saturday (3pm)
Callington Town reserves P-P St Dominick
Millbrook reserves 2-1 Morwenstow

St Piran League West

Illogan RBL were crowned champions without kicking a ball on Saturday. They were awarded the points after St Ives Town forfeited their match, meaning second-placed StDay had to avoid defeat to third-placed Mullion to keep their hopes alive, but the Seagulls’ 4-2 win meant the title went to the Oxland Park outfit.

That result also had a big impact on the promotion race. St Day and Mullion are the only realistic contenders for the sole promotion spot available, with that result taking the Seagulls to within one point of the Saints.

The only other winners over the weekend were StAgnes, who put five past Perranporth at Enys Parc.

Good Friday (11am unless stated)
Helston Athletic reserves 2-2 Porthleven
Mousehole Development 0-0 Hayle (3pm)
St Agnes 5-0 Perranporth

Saturday (3pm)

St Day 2-4 Mullion
Truro City reserves 1-1 Redruth United

East Cornwall Premier League

It will take a brave person to predict the final order of the top four of the ECPL following another interesting round of fixtures on Saturday.

Altarnun now lead only by virtue of their superior goal difference after being held to a 2-2 draw at FoxholeStars, with Gunnislake breathing down the Nuns’ necks after they won 2-1 at Roche.

StMinver, who began the day in second, suffered a body blow to their championship aspirations as they lost 3-0 at Torpoint Athletic thirds, who leapfrogged them into third.

Saturday (2.30pm)
Foxhole Stars 2-2 Altarnun
Newquay Academy 0-3 St Teath
Roche 1-2 Gunnislake
St Cleer 2-0 St Stephen
Torpoint Athletic thirds 3-0 St Minver
