Camborne's Tribute South West One West match against Clevedon was abandoned in unlikely circumstances on Saturday after the posts at one end of the pitch fell down.

Despite the best efforts of Clevedon officials they were unabe to repair them and the game was abandoned with just 20 minutes played and the home side leading 6-0.

The match is likely to be replayed on Saturday, February 22, when Town were due to play Penryn in the semi-final of the Cornwall Cup.

Results elsewhere on Saturday went in Camborne's favour, with St Austell suffering an unexpected 20-18 defeat at home against Thornbury, and Hornets' eleven match unbeaten run coming to an end away at Chard.

Camborne are now fifth in the table, five points behind St Austell and well positioned for a promotion push going in to the final third of the season.

Full South West One West results were as follows:

Chard 27 - 15 Hornets 
Cleve 18 - 13 Cullompton 
Clevedon A6 - 0A Camborne
Coney Hill 5 - 9 Bridgwater & Albion 
North Petherton 20 - 12 Wadebridge Camels 
Sidmouth 0 - 22 Bideford 
St Austell 18 - 20 Thornbury
