For the second season running, Bodmin Town claimed a notable treble of the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League Premier Division title, Cornwall Senior Cup and Throgmorton Cup, after yesterday's 2-0 victory over Elburton Villa in the final of the latter.

The win at St Blazey was more comfortable than the score suggested as Bodmin had several chances to score while Elburton had just three efforts had Kevin Miller's goal.

Bodmin opened the scoring on 34 minutes when Chris Carter's poor header fell to Steve Colwell, who blasted a beauty into the top corner of Simon May's goal from 20 yards. The second half was just three minutes old when great work in the area by Carter set up Sam Matthews to fire home from eight yards.

The Peninsula League season ended just slightly ahead of schedule, with all nine games throughout the three divisions completed over Friday and Saturday.

St Austell ended their impressive season as they consolidated fourth place with their 7-1 victory over Liverton United side, who are to be congratulated on not giving up as they completed their fixtures – albeit with a scratch side at Poltair Park on Friday.

The Lilywhites were easy winners on the night, with Dan Nancarrow and Mike Body each scoring twice alongside efforts from Dan Lean, Martin Giles and Ben Flatley but the goal of the game belonged to the visitors' Oliver Booth with a spectacular 30-yard-plus volley that completed the evening's scoring.

Friday night also saw Peninsula League secretary Philip Hiscox presenting the Division One West runners-up trophy to Helston Athletic after their 5-1 victory at Penryn Athletic, who had Dale Band on target.

Goals from Huw Howlett (two), Liam Eddy (two) and Jamie Thomson saw the visitors set a divisional record of 135 league goals in a season

Stoke Gabriel were presented with the Division One East runners-up trophy on Saturday after their 3-3 draw at home to the University of Exeter. Goals from Ben Towler, Dean Stevens and Ellis Laight saw the hosts come back from two goals down after Matt Langley and Tom Lees had scored for the students, who snatched a point through Josh Higgins' late equaliser.

The final Premier game took place at Bovey Tracey, where goals from Dan Taylor, Ben Head and Cliff Walters saw Bovey Tracey beat Falmouth 3-2, with Glen Squires and Rob Green replying for the losers.

Sticker took the fourth-place prize money in One West after their 4-1 victory at Porthleven, finishing a point ahead of Callington Town, who were busy beating Perranporth 3-1 at Marshfield Parc.

Vospers Oak Villa ended a run of 14 games without a victory as they won 3-1 at bottom club Foxhole Stars, with One West completed by Dobwalls' 2-1 triumph over visiting Mousehole. The final game was the One East encounter at Manstowe Lane, where Sidmouth beat Okehampton 3-2.
