Cornish cricket preview – Saturday, June 18

A local derby is in store for Premier Division leaders Penzance as they welcome near-neighbours St Just to St Clare. Greg Smith’s side enjoy a 27-point cushion over second-placed Hayle and are bidding for a sixth win from six games. Although St Just are currently sat in sixth spot, a victory could well see them rise above Hayle into second.

After losing last week’s bottom-of-the-table clash at Werrington, Truro face another important trip east to face Callington, who are now Truro’s nearest rivals after Werrington’s victory last weekend moved them above their neighbours. It’s not quite a must-win for Truro just yet, but defeat, coupled with unfavourable results elsewhere, could see the Boscawen Park side as much as 41 points adrift by the end of the weekend.

Elsewhere in the Premier Division, second-placed Hayle head to eight-placed Werrington, Wadebridge, currently in third, make the trip to St Austell, who have slipped to fourth following two successive losses. Rounding off the weekend is fifth-placed Camborne’s short trip to sixth-placed Redruth.

In County Division 1, leaders Beacon look to make it ten out of ten when they welcome Newquay to the BCG, while second-placed Grampound Road aim to return to winning ways following two straight defeats when they make the trip to Lanhydrock.It’s also the semi-finals of the Vinter Cup this week, with Penzance taking on Redruth at Helston and Camborne facing St Just at Penzance.
