LISKEARD Athletic moved to the top of the South West Peninsula League Premier West table with another classy 5-0 win at Camelford last night.

They are level on points with second-place St Austell, but they have played two fewer games and have a far superior goal difference.

The Blues are averaging five goals a game this season, and that was what they achieved at Trefrew Park on a magnificent snooker table surface that suited their slick passing game down to the ground.

They totally dominated the opening half an hour, and led 3-0 after that period.

They took the lead with a third-minute goal from Mike Smith after a superb free-kick routine involving Max Gilbert and Harry Jeffery, and Smith added a second from the spot after referee Will Annear awarded a rather soft penalty for a foul on the striker.

Smith then turned provider for Max Gilbert to score after 30 minutes, after the midfielder's initial shot had been blocked.

A wonderful strike by Camelford's Connor Sturdy came back off an upright just before half-time as the hosts came more into the game.

It was not until the 73rd minute – as the fog came down – that Liskeard got a fourth through Ruben Kane, and young substitute Will Larsen completed the scoring in the fourth minute of injury time.
