It is set to be a big weekend of sport in Falmouth, with three high-profile derbies due to take place on the same afternoon.

Falmouth Town host Helston Athletic in the Cornwall Senior Cup, with Falmouth RFC welcoming Penryn to the Recreation Ground in Tribute Western Counties West, while Penryn Athletic take on Town's reserves in the St Piran League Cup.

Kicking off the day is the Senior Cup third round tie between Town and the Blues (kick-off 2pm), with Andrew Westgarth's side hoping to begin the defence of the trophy they won for the first time in 22 years back in April.

Steve Massey's Blues will be determined to right the wrongs of the last time the rivals met, when Town romped to a 5-1 victory in their FA Vase first round proper tie at Helston's Kellaway Park last month.

The match was due to be played last Saturday but fell foul of heavy rain earlier in the week.

Six hundred and eighty-nine spectators, consisting largely of Falmouth's F-Troop, attended the Vase clash last month, and a sizeable attendance is expected at Bickland Park this weekend.

Half an hour later, and just 1.2 miles up the road, will be the eagerly anticipated clash between the Eagles and the Borough at the Recreation Ground.

The match will be the first competitive meeting between the teams for three seasons, with Falmouth doing the double over Penryn in the 2016/17 season on their way to the Cornwall/Devon League title.

Ian Morgan's Penryn are the form team coming into the game, winning four of their nine games to Falmouth's two, but Graham Whitmore's Eagles will be bolstered by a home crowd and the fact that the Borough have yet to earn a point away from home this season.

A large attendance is also expected at the Rec on Saturday.

Rounding off the derby day is the St Piran League Cup tie between Penryn Athletic and Falmouth Town reserves (kick-off 2.30pm).

Harry Pope's Penryn had won their first 11 games of the season in all competitions, but go into Saturday off the back of two defeats, while Town are unbeaten in eight.

Penryn remain at the top of the St Piran League West with 27 points from ten games, but Town are their closest rivals in second spot, adding further spice to Saturday's tie.
