Due to the Cornwall Senior Cup, there were just five games in the South West Peninsula League on Saturday, but the games played all produced winners.

Tavistock were the highest placed team in action and they climbed a place to third after a 6-2 win at home to Stoke Gabriel.

Launceston also climbed a place, to fifth, after they beat Camelford 3-1 at Pennygillam, whilst Falmouth Town remain in seventh, despite a 2-0 win at home to Torpoint Athletic.

Exmouth Town were the only side to win on the road as they had a 2-0 victory at Ivybridge Town which lifts them a place to ninth, whilst Cullompton Rangers jumped a massive eight places to eleventh after a 2-0 win at home to bottom-of-the-table Witheridge.

In the Cornwall Senior Cup, eight Premier sides were in action with six of them going through to the next round in December.

The two that failed to progress were Godolphin Atlantic, who lost 4-1 at home to cup holders Bodmin Town in the only tie to feature two Premier outfits, whilst Helston Athletic crashed out 4-2 away at Combination League side Perranporth for the day`s biggest cup shock.

The other six sides to progress all did so with something to spare as Saltash United won a staggering 15-0 away at St Teath, St Austell also hit double figures with an 11-0 win at home to Mullion.

Sticker had a 6-0 win away at St Agnes, whilst both Callington Town and Newquay had 5-0 home wins over St Just and Padstow respectively.
