Falmouth Town manager Andrew Westgarth will be hoping to build on a good first South West Peninsula League game of the season against Mousehole with another at St Dennis on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).

Town will have faced a ten-day wait to play their second game of the season at St Dennis this weekend, after their first match was brought forward from last Saturday to Wednesday to avoid a clash with the Boardmasters festival, which was subsequently cancelled due to extreme weather fears.

“It’s a bit ironic really because I was very concerned about Boardmasters,” Westgarth said after last week's draaw with Mousehole. “In previous years gone by we’ve had a lot of players going to Boardmasters, so I thought I would try and get ahead of the game, but Boardmasters is now cancelled so it backfired on me a little bit.

“But in one way it will give us a chance because we took a few injuries [against Mousehole]. Hopefully we can get a few boys patched up, repaired and ready for St Dennis.”

St Dennis will be one of the perceived weaker sides in the new division this year after finishing fifth in Division 1 West last season, but Town will be wary of the threat the Saints will pose after nearly being knocked out by the Boscawen Park club in last season’s Cornwall Senior Cup.

St Dennis led 1-0 at half-time in their second-round tie at Bickland Park, but a late Broglino strike rescued victory for Town, who went on to lift the trophy.

The Saints kicked off their season with a 4-4 draw at home to Dobwalls on Wednesday night.

David Blizzard and Olly Walker are doubtful for Saturday after picking up injuries against Mousehole. Reuben Talbot, Sam Pickup and Luke Barner are all expected to be involved after missing the game.

Port visit Lillywhites

Porthleven are on the road again this weekend as they travel to 2015 SWPL Premier champions and 14-time Cornwall Senior Cup winners St Austell.

Porthleven travel to Poltair Park to take on the Lillywhites for the first time in the league since the 2009/10 season, when St Austell were promoted to the Premier as Division 1 West runners-up.

St Austell are the early frontrunners in the SWPL Premier West after winning both of their first two games - the only side to do so as of yet. They hammered last season’s Division 1 West champions Liskeard Athletic 6-1, before winning 6-0 at Penzance on Wednesday night.

Those connected to the Fishermen may not have fond memories of the last time the two teams last met, with St Austell running out 8-1 winners in their FA Vase first qualifying round tie in 2014.

“You can see that St Austell are strong, like they’ve been for as long as I can remember and that will be a good test for us and a good, tough game,” Porthleven co-manager Jamie Thomson said.

“These are the opportunities for the lads to really show what character we’ve got and we need to see it, even if we go there and we don’t get a good result, it allows us to see what we’ve got about us and how brave we are in certain areas.”

Blues play first home game

Helston Athletic play their first home game of the season on Saturday as Liskeard Athletic visit Kellaway Park (kick-off 3pm).

The teams go into Saturday’s game with mixed opening results: the Blues enjoyed a 2-0 win at Newquay on Wednesday, while Liskeard were hammered 6-1 at St Austell the night before, although Liskeard have since earned a 6-3 win at home to Sticker in midweek.

The two sides last met in the league in the 2014/15 season in the old Division 1 West, which ended with Helston winning the title and promotion to the Premier.

‘Dron visit Launceston

Wendron United face Launceston for the first time this weekend, as they make the trip to Pennygillam (kick-off 3pm).

The Clarets come into the game in fine scoring form, after beginning their season with a thumping 9-1 win at home to Sticker on Friday.

Jamie Webb will be unavailable for Wendron after he was sent off in their opening day 2-2 draw at Penzance on Saturday.

Wendron boss Jack Greenwood said: “It will be our first proper test as to the new set-up and a place we haven’t been before. It will be interesting for us to test ourselves against a more established senior side.”
