HELSTON ATHLETIC will host the Cornwall Senior Cup final for the first time in the club's 122-year history next month.

The Cornwall FA's decision was announced yesterday that the showpiece event, taking place at 2pm on Easter Monday, April 17, will be at Kellaway Park.

Club chairman Paul Hendy said: "Obviously we're absolutely delighted. It has been one of our objectives for the last four or five years and to have such a prestige event is fantastic."

The postponed semi-finals will be played this week, with Falmouth Town taking on Saltash at St Austell on Tuesday before Bodmin Town take on Newquay at Wadebridge on Wednesday.

Traditionally the final venue is chosen based on the geography of the finalists, but Hendy added: "We reached the final in 2013 and had to go to Saltash to play Bodmin, so we figured then that we could host it at Helston."

Sid Taylor's men hosted Bodmin in the SWPL Premier last night and went down 2-1.

Bodmin led 1-0 at the break and doubled their advantage in the second half before Helston's top scorer Matt Drummond produced a stunning 40-yard lob to reduce the arrears.

Helston host Tiverton Town on Saturday.
