The football and rugby seasons are beginning to wind down, but the effect of the unrelenting rain means that the games are still coming thick and fast.

Falmouth Town and Helston Athletic aim to pick up vital points in the middle of busy runs, while Penryn and Falmouth rugby sides are entering the final stretch in their quests to win promotion and avoid relegation respectively.

Rugby (kick-off 3pm unless stated)

  • Falmouth v Paignton (Tribute Western Counties West)

Falmouth host Paignton on Saturday in a crunch clash at the bottom of the Western Counties West table.

The Eagles currently sit 12th in the table, one place and one point above Crediton in the relegation zone.

After two draws on the bounce, Falmouth know that winning at least one of their last two games is vital if they wish to stay in the league.

With their final game against champions St Ives next week, they will know that their best chance of picking up that win is this weekend.

Last time out: Sidmouth 39-39 Falmouth (April 7)

  • Penryn v Saltash (Tribute Cornwall/Devon)

Meanwhile, just up the road Penryn host Saltash in a potentially massive game for a very different reason, as second plays third in the Cornwall/Devon league.

Only the top two will win promotion, and with Wellington in the driving seat for top spot, the other promotion place may come down to who wins Saturday’s game.

Saltash won the reverse fixture 30-14 in December, but a win for Penryn would put them on the cusp of a return to the Western Counties West after two years away.

Last time out: Plymstock Albion Oaks 7-41 Penryn (April 7)

Football (kick-off 3pm unless stated)

  • Falmouth Town v Cullompton Rangers (SWPL Premier)

Falmouth face Cullompton Rangers at Bickland Park as they look to continue what has been a stellar season so far.

Town were unlucky to lose to league leaders Plymouth Parkway, but made up for it with a 3-0 win at home to St Austell on Tuesday night.

That win put Town up to second in the table, so a win against Cullompton would strengthen their bid to stay there come the end of the season.

Last time out: Falmouth Town 3-0 St Austell (April 10)

  • Helston Athletic v Tavistock (SWPL Premier)
  • Witheridge v Helston Athletic (SWPL Premier, Sunday 2pm)

Helston are likely to be in for a tough afternoon as defending SWPL champions Tavistock come to Kellaway Park.

The Blues picked up a good win at Godolphin Atlantic in midweek, but will be aware of the step up that Tavy will pose.

In a busy weekend, Helston will then prepare to make the trip to Witheridge on Sunday.

Last time out: Godolphin Atlantic 1-3 Helston Athletic (April 10)
