LAUNCESTON’S footballers hadn’t won a game at Pennygillam since March, but the Clarets finally put that right on Saturday with a 6-0 thrashing of Bodmin Town in the Premier West division of the South West Peninsula League.
In this week’s Post there is David Sillifant’s match report as well as reaction from delighted manager, Neil Price.
There are also the thoughts of Camelford boss Reg Hambly on their River Camel derby defeat at Wadebridge Town, as well as reports on Bude Town’s loss at Dobwalls and Callington Town’s draw at Penzance.
Elsewhere in the football, there is the latest round-ups from the various divisions of the St Piran League and women’s football.
Halwill and Lifton were in cup action as we find out whether they progressed, while Morwenstow put ten past Hartland Clovelly in Intermediate One of the North Devon League.
While the vast majority of the football and rugby went ahead, Launceston were left frustrated as much of the Polson Bridge pitch was frozen which put pay to their home clash with Exmouth in Regional One South West.
However, their second team’s game at Redruth Albany went ahead, as did the fixtures involving both Bude teams.
There are reports inside as well as on Launceston and Bude’s ladies teams who were both away from home in Women’s NC 2 South West (West).
Bude’s ladies were due to be in action at home before the men followed straight after in the West Hockey League, but the pitch hadn’t thawed out in time. However by 12.45pm it had, so the men played against University of Plymouth Seconds in Piran Division One.
But they wish it hadn’t as they fell to a 3-1 defeat. Inside this week’s paper is Andy Davis’ report as well as photos.
We also find out how Launceston’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu members got on at the Devon BJJ Open, while there is the latest from the North Cornwall Table Tennis League.
The season finale of the Cornwall Grand Prix Series was held in Falmouth on Sunday with members from Launceston Road Runners and Bude RATs taking part. Read about how that went as the trophies were handed out.
