In the Knockout cup...

AFC Western and Downderry Rovers meet in a semi-final having both lost by a single goal to Royal Par last time out. Downderry Rovers will be looking to avenge their one nil defeat at home against AFC Western in the league in November. AFC Western will be keen to avoid a successive semi-final cup defeat. Despite AFC Western and Downderry Rovers being at opposite ends of the table, this will be a tight game and one should expect clever tactics or a moment of brilliance to win the day. Both teams have plenty of players to provide that.

Grampound have struggled to get games played on their notoriously sodden pitch but they'll be keen to see this game go ahead in the hope of nudging their way into a final over the highly rated St Dennis outfit. Grampound are yet to lose a football match on the turf this season and St Dennis have only lost one game. Be prepared to watch a stubborn semi-final battle unfold.

In the league...

Callington Town will be looking to take pole position in the league should they effectively deal with an erratic mid-tabled Holmans Cruisers. With Wadebridge Town being withdrawn from the league and having recently lost to league champions and leaders St Dennis, Cally are more reliant on other results to challenge for the league title. Having all three remaining games at home will be an advantage for Cally.

Constantine host St Agnes Bolsters and will try to lift themselves off the bottom of the table to leap frog Downderry Rovers who are in cup action.

Perranporth started the league campaign with four straight wins but have stuttered since. They will host the in form Royal Par who are hoping to claim their fifth away scalp on the run after losing their first five league games.

There's no ref for the Grampound v St Dennis semi final at the moment and Paul Murphy feels that it is unlikely he will be able to appoint one.

If there is anyone out there available, please get in touch on 07967 207577. Thanks
