Saturday saw not one, but two clubs recording double figure victories to steal the headlines in the South West Peninsula League Premier Division.

Plymouth Argyle had a 2pm kick-off at home to Godolphin Atlantic with the Pilgrims posting a 10-0 drubbing of the visitors, but that was only the top score of the day for about an hour as Saltash United went better as the Ashes romped to a 12-0 thrashing of Callington Town at Kimberley Stadium with three different players bagging a hat-trick.

Elsewhere, the leading sides recorded sensible wins with leaders Plymouth Parkway gaining revenge for their only defeat of the season at Camelford by beating the Camels 4-0 at home.

Tavistock followed up their midweek cup win with a 2-0 success away at Newquay to stay third behind Argyle.

Three sides in the top half climbed a place each with a win, St Austell are now 6th after a 3-0 verdict over bottom of the table Witheridge, Bodmin Town are up to eighth after a 2-0 win at Sticker and Launceston are up to ninth after a 5-1 win away at Exmouth Town.

Only two sides in the bottom half collected any points at all with both Cullompton and Ivybridge gaining much-needed victories.

The Ivy’s had a 5-1 success against local rivals Stoke Gabriel, whilst Cullompton Rangers picked up a 2-1 win for their reward from the long journey down to Helston Athletic.

In the Walter C Parson Cup, Falmouth Town are the latest side to book a place in the semi-finals after the Bickland Park hosts beat fellow Premier side Torpoint Athletic 2-1 in a feisty tie.

Falmouth join Godolphin as already being through with two more quarter-finals to be played, both of which are scheduled in the next week.
