A top of the table clash between the Helston Athletic and Mousehole AFC who are fourth and third in the Toolstation Western League table respectively has been postponed due to covid cases in the Mousehole squad.

On the afternoon of Friday, December 24 Mousehole announced that they had been forced to postpone both their match with Helston and their New Years Day fixture with Exmouth Town due to the outbreak. 

A new date for the match will be scheduled in due course. 

Helston Athletic confirmed the news and insisted the clubhouse would still be open for business despite the match being off: 

The match was set for a bumper crowd with the derby falling on Boxing Day. Helston's next match is away to Buckland Athletic on New Years Day.

It will be their fourth away match in a row.
