The happiest side after Saturday`s results in the South West Peninsula League Premier Division are probably Tavistock, not just because they top the table by five points, but that they do so without actually having played!

The morning`s closest three chasing clubs were all at home and all three lost this afternoon.

Saltash United in second place went down 2-3 at home to Launceston in what was in affect their game in hand on the Lambs.

Plymouth Argyle reserves in third played their 35th game of the season, which is more than any other club, and lost 0-3 at Coach Road to a Bodmin Town side who climb a place to fourth and took full advantage of results elsewhere.

St Austell fell a place from to fifth as they lost 0-2 at home to an Exmouth Town side who climb two places and into the top six.

Away from the title race, Cullompton Rangers picked up the highest scoring win twith a 5-1 success away at Camelford with Falmouth Town not far behind as they won 4-0 away at Ivybridge Town.

Helston Athletic climbed a place to fourteenth as they beat Godolphin Atlantic 2-1 at Kellaway Park, whilst Newquay kept their hopes of avoiding relegation alive as they edged a seven-goal thriller to win 4-3 away at Witheridge, the Peppermints win does also mean that St Blazey are now six points adrift at the bottom of the table.

Two games fell to postponements with Callington Town v St Blazey and Plymouth Parkway v Torpoint Athletic both being called off.
