10:54am

Some more good news for rugby fans.

The pitch at the Mennaye has passed its inspection for the game against Ealing tomorrow afternoon. It all kicks off down there at 2pm.

10:40am

But on a happier note there's the Six Nations opener to enjoy later, with a debut for Cornishman Jack Nowell as Stuart Lancaster's side take on France in Paris.

Every cloud...

Falmouth Packet: Cornishman Jack Nowell selected for England Six Nations squad

10:37am

So there you have it. If you planned on taking in an SWPL game this afternoon you have a grand total of three to choose from.

 

10:34am

10:33am

10:33am

So, what are we left with then...

The answer is not a whole lot. 

Premier division:

St.Blazey v Ivybridge Town

Division one west:

Perranporth v Dobwalls, and Truro City v Bude.

10:31am

10:30am

So we have a total of two games on in division one west, and one in the premier division.

Pah...

10:29am

SWPL Premier - Camelford v Falmouth Town is OFF

10:21am

So we have two games confirmed at the moment, and we're waiting on two more.

Games definitely on in the SWPL:

Premier division:

St.Blazey v Ivybridge Town 

Division one west:

Perranporth v Dobwalls

Pitch inspections pending at Falmouth v Camelford, and Truro City v Bude.
 

10:19am

Perranporth v Dobwalls is ON! Crikey!

10:18am

 
Fourth time!

10:18am

So we're just waitng for news on the 10am inspections, which includes Falmouth v Camelford and presumably the remainder of the matches in division one west.

 

 

10:11am

We're still waiting on news of Falmouth Town's game up at Camelford. St Blazey's game against Ivybridge has already been given the go ahead.

10:08am

Games still on in the SWPL:

Premier division:

St.Blazey v Ivybridge Town
Camelford v Falmouth Town

Division one west:

Perranporth v Dobwalls
Truro City v Bude Town

10:07am

Football's not the only sport to be affected by the rain. Penryn's Western Counties West match against Teignmouth is also postponed.

9:57am

SWPL Premier - Bodmin Town v Exmouth Town is OFF

Just two games left in the premier division.

Only two games on in division one west as things stand. They are:

Perranporth v Dobwalls
Truro City v Bude Town

9:31am

I'll tell you something, St Blazey has the Chuck Norris of football pitches, no doubt about it. I think Blaise Park has seen more football than most over the last month.

9:29am

Let's be honest, you didn't expect it to last, did you?

St Dennis v Launceston in the Cornwall Senior Cup is OFF.

9:27am

Oh my word, some good news at last!

SWPL Premier: St Blazey v Ivybridge Town is ON

A reminder that any league games that do survive the weather are now 3pm kick offs now that we are at the 1st of February

SWPL league secretary Phil Hiscox

9:18am

Here's a list of fixtures still on in the SWPL as of 9.20am.

Premier division:

St.Blazey v Ivybridge Town
Newquay v Saltash United
Camelford v Falmouth Town
Bodmin Town v Exmouth Town

Division one west:

Perranporth v Dobwalls
Truro City v Bude Town

9:14am

Morning all. We're expecting news of more cancellations as Mr Hiscox sits chained to his desk for the next few hours fielding phonecalls.

A bit of early bad news for you: Foxhole Stars v Penryn Athletic is off. There's even a light sprinkling of snow on the pitch at Foxhole.

 

5:15pm

In the SWPL premier division Tavistock v St Austell is off, as is Holsworthy v Penzance in division one west.

4:30pm

Wadebridge Town v Porthleven is subject to a pitch inspection tomorrow morning. There are flood alerts in Wadebridge, so don't hold your breath.

3:49pm

Here are some men with interesting facial hair singing about rain. They ask a legitimate question. . .

3:40pm

And surprise surprise, our featured game is off too:

SWPL division one west: Helston Athletic v Mousehole

3:06pm

Ok, first games off and they're both in the SWPL premier division. As Mr Hiscox himself said, expect more to follow:

Games off: Elburton Villa v Elmore, Godolphin Atlantic v Witheridge.

 

2:02pm

I'd expect those postponement notices to start rolling in this afternoon. We'll keep you posted.

1:55pm

Peninsula League secretary Phil Hiscox has already posted a notice on the league's wesbite asking that clubs notify him well in advance if their game is off.

It speaks volumes that he simply copied the same post he used last week.

 

If your pitch has the ability to drain away overnight and through Saturday morning it is my desire that you leave any decision on Saturdays game until Saturday morning, making a final call having regard to the away teams travel arrangements. However, there are some pitches where clearly any drier interlude is not going to be enough for them to be played, and as such I will accept postponements from 2pm this afternoon onwards without need for a referees inspection.

SWPL secretary, Phil Hiscox

1:51pm

You don't need us to tell you it's raining outside, do you?

You do? Well, it is. Lots.

In fact, it's at the point now where we at Packet Towers are seriously considering the use of snorkels to get to and from our cars. 

Want to see the view from our office? Of course you do.

Falmouth Packet:

So that's the picture as of 2pm in our part of the county. Not looking good, is it?
