The farmer who overturned a trailer carrying cows on the M5 on Saturday was without doubt public enemy number one as far as several South West Peninsula League Premier Division clubs were concerned.

The delays that followed caused teams, referees and spectators` untold delays with at least five matches being seriously delayed, but after all the frantic calls and changed arrangements all games were in the end played.

Leaders Tavistock gave a firm warning to their rivals that they are serious about the title as they thrashed Helston Athletic by a 10-1 margin at Langsford Park to maintain a five-point gap over Saltash United.

The Ashes too were amongst the goals as they passed the 100-mark on their way to a 7-0 win at home to lowly Newquay to stay in second.

Bodmin Town climbed a place as they completed the double over Plymouth Argyle reserves with a 3-0 win at Priory Park which marked the Pilgrims last league game of the season, the first of the clubs to complete the league programme.

Exmouth Town stay in touch after coming from behind to beat Camelford 4-2 at home, whilst Plymouth Parkway were held to a goalless draw away at Launceston.

Two sides in the bottom half picked up wins with Torpoint Athletic 3-0 winners at home to Cullompton Rangers and Ivybridge Town 2-0 victors from their trip to Falmouth Town.
