MORE rain, coupled with high winds meant that, unsurprisingly, the local football scene was hit that hard that only two games involving Post area clubs were played on Saturday.
With more rain in recent days there’s likely to be a reduced schedule although there’s plenty of cup competitions to look forward to if it does.
Three Post area clubs are left in the last 32 of the RGB Cornwall Senior Cup.
Launceston have the most difficult task possible as they head to Saltash United (2pm), who are currently second in the South West Peninsula League Premier West table with 40 points from 15 games.
The Ashes are averaging over five goals per game and have conceded just 12, two of which were scored by the Clarets in a 6-2 reversal back in August.
Camelford will fancy their chances when they host fellow Premier outfit St Dennis at Trefrew Park (2pm). The two sides met in North Cornwall only 16 days ago with the Camels emerging 2-1 winners.
Reg Hambly’s side are eighth with St Dennis second bottom in the 20-team division.
In decent form since then, Callington will hope for a repeat at the Ginsters Marsh.

Morwenstow haven’t played since October 5 due to a bye and the poor recent weather.

Launceston Reserves and Bude Town have the chance to cement themselves in the top six of the Piran League East.
Launceston will leapfrog St Mawgan into fourth with a win over the Newquay-based side, while a St Mawgan victory coupled with a Bude victory at Lanreath will see the Seasiders jump above the Clarets into fifth with a game in-hand.
St Minver and North Petherwin are both on the road this weekend in the East Cornwall Premier League (2.30pm).
Fourth-placed St Minver go to Veryan, with both sides on the same number of points and level on goal difference.
