Constantine have finished third in division four and subject to the usual verification of all promotions by the Cornwall Cricket League will be promoted for next season, writes Michael Weeks.

There are three up this year as no-one from the west has been demoted from County Division One, as it stands.

With Stithians seconds conceding to St Just thirds, and St Ives seconds to Wendron, Constantine had to win to stay in the top three.

They did it in convincing style at Boulder Parc with a 159 run win over Redruth thirds. Simon Husson made 74 and Paul Vyvyan, Theo Clitheroe and Darren Griffiths got twenties in the 222 for eight.

Redruth were bowled out for 63 in 22 overs. Graham Griffiths completed another excellent season with the ball to take five for 19. Also on the up are Perranarworthal seconds from division five.

They finished second to unbeaten Gerrans following a seven wicket win over Hayle seconds, played at Leedstown. David Taylor took three for 28 in the 123 all out before Chris Yeomans made 57 not out, putting on an unbeaten 89 for the fourth wicket with Will Dove (25no).

Back in division two St Gluvias had to settle for seventh after losing at St Just seconds by five wickets. St Gluvias were 142 all out with ten balls unused. Richard Bannister made 28 and Jon Udy 20.

Sam O’Nyons continued his great finish to the season to take all five St Just wickets that fell for 44 runs from eleven overs.

St Just’s win meant Mount Ambrose had too much to do to survive. They restricted already doomed Falmouth seconds to 175-6 at the Hine Downing Oval. Jacob Stephens made 84 and Mark Burley 36.

The Mount lost seven wickets in reaching the target with Steve Redwood taking four for 31. Stithians ended fourth and ensured finishing above Penzance seconds by beating them by nine wickets at Church Road.

Will Legge took four for 38 and Archie Rowe three for 14 in Penzance’s 86. Andrew Lean replied with 58 not out at a run a ball.

On Sunday Stithians lost their Division 2 T20 semi-final narrowly by three wickets after Callum Martin batted well for 58. Hayle reached the 143 target with just two balls remaining.

Perranarworthal suffered a 108 run home defeat against champions Crofty Holman in division three. The visitors recovered from 140-5 to reach 226-8. Ben Coston took four for 70. After reaching 61 without loss Perran’s innings fell away to 118 all out. Peter Holland made 37 and Coston 22.
