Overview of SWP League Winter Matches

Football is beautiful regardless of what division you play in, but it’s quite difficult to find bookmakers for little leagues like Division 1 West (SWP League), where Bude Town FC is currently playing.

Sadly, the guys from Bude Town FC aren’t doing well so far. Maybe it’s bad luck or a lack of skills on their part, but either way, let’s see how things are going in this division.

Winter season in SWP League

This month, Bude Town played only once. They faced Wadebridge Town on January 20th and they, unfortunately, lost 1-4. December was a busier month for them. Bude started well on the 16th of December when they obtained a victory against Dobwalls 1-3. However, about a week later on the 23rd, they lost in the face of Wendron United 5-2.

It seems the players needed a bit more down time to adjust because they were unprepared to play against Holsworthy 3 days later when they lost 0-2. The last game of 2017 took place between Bude Town and Plymouth Marjon when they had a great win 3-0, thus finishing the year on a positive note.  

There is one more team that seems to share the bad luck of Bude Town: Plymouth Marjon, who lost almost every game this winter. So far, they lost 2-3 against St. Blazey on December 9th, followed by a victory with Plymstock United 0-1. After that, they scored 2 more losses, the first against Bude Town and the most recent one with Porthleven 1-2 earlier this month on the 20th.

At the other end of the continuum, Wendron United won both games they played in December, the one against Bude and an earlier one with Holsworthy, 1-0 on the 9th of the month.

Apart from the two matches we already mentioned, there was one more game this year, namely Holsworth v Elburton Vila on January 13th, that ended with the victory of the away team 0-2.

Other cups

In addition to the main league matches, there are 2 cups in play at this time. In the Walter C Parson Cup, Mousehole won against Launceston 2-1, thus securing a spot on the last 8 and winning a £300 prize for being the only West side team to achieve this. Tavistock is expected to face Bodmin Town on January 31st, after which Godolphin Atlantic will play against the Newton Abbot Spurs in the quarter-finals on February 3rd.

On January 20th, Millbrook played against Newquay in the Cornwall Senior Cup but lost 4-2. Camelford and Carharrack were also on the losing side after their games with St. Austell 2-1 and Torpoint Athletics 2-1, respectively.
