West Cornwall will be represented by Falmouth Town, Porthleven and Wendron United in the Cornwall Senior Cup quarter-final draw on Saturday.

The three clubs will be joined by holders Saltash United, Bodmin Town, Launceston, Wadebridge Town and either Perranwell or St Austell in Saturday's draw, which takes place at 4.30pm.

Falmouth Town will be one of the favourites to win the competition and are currently the highest-ranked team definitely through to the quarter-finals, although that honour will go to St Austell, should they beat Perranwell on Saturday.

Town beat East Cornwall Premier League Premier Division club Polperro 3-0 in the third round on Saturday, with Marcello Jones, Luke Brabyn putting Town two up at half-time before Tim Nixon's shot went in off a Polperro man to complete the scoring after the break.

Falmouth cruised past Polperro's divisional rivals Looe Town in the first round, winning 12-1, before coming from a goal down to beat SWPL Division 1 West side St Dennis 2-1 in the second round in November.

Falmouth assistant manager James Miller said: “To be honest when you’ve got the league out of our grasp in any way, shape or form now, we’ve dropped too many [points], it’s important to keep your season going by having a cup run so to be in the last eight of both competitions is really quite good.

“It’ll keep our season alive, keep the lads battling for their places and keep everything hopefully a little bit fresh. We’ll aim to push on and finish as high as we can in the league but realistically now to have a pop at one of the cups if we can."

Porthleven are the highest-ranked non-Premier club in the draw, with the Division 1 West leaders sealing their last eight spot with a 9-0 demolition of Combination League title challengers St Day, with Matt Drummond scoring five goals.

The Fishermen were one of 13 teams to have a bye into the second round, where they earned a narrow 1-0 win at home to SWPL Premier side Callington Town.

Porthleven manager Alan Carey said: “I’d like to have somebody at home, but it doesn’t matter really does it. Obviously you’d look at who is left and try and pick one of the sides, maybe Wendron or something, from our league, that’s what we’d want.

"But the chances are we’re probably going to get one of the Premier sides so if we can draw them at home and get a good game at home and maybe get a go it then who knows. That’s the way I look at it and who knows, if we don’t get through then we don’t get through but if we do then onto the semis."

Unless Combination League club Perranwell shock 14-time winners St Austell on Saturday, Wendron United will be the lowest-ranked of the quarter-finalists.

Dron are currently ninth in SWPL Division 1 West, but have lost just once in their last ten league games, stretching back to the start of September.

Despite being goalless at the break in their third-round tie at home to St Stephens Borough on Saturday, Wendron scored five times in the second half to see off the East Cornwall Premier League side.

Dron beat St Agnes 8-2 in the first round before enjoying a bye into round three after Bude Town failed to raise a side for their second-round tie.

Wendron manager Jack Greenwood said: “We want to be at home, I think we fancy ourselves against anyone at home. I think the only side I wouldn’t necessarily fancy is Saltash because I know nothing about them other than they’re historically good and presently very good as well.

"Obviously Falmouth being best mates with Charlie [Davis, Falmouth coach] would be a nice one. We’d fancy ourselves against Wadebridge or Porthleven at home and wouldn’t mind Bodmin as well.

"St Austell and Saltash with Launceston would be the three we’d want to avoid but we’ll take anyone and if it’s at home we’ll be happy with that.”
