THE new South West Peninsula League season gets underway on the first Saturday in August and clubs from across the Voice patch have found out their opening day opponents in SWPL Premier West.

The division will be made up of 17 teams with promoted Truro City Reserves and Holsworthy the two new teams. Holsworthy have been transferred from Premier East.

With St Blazey having been promoted up to the Western League, their neighbours St Austell have been busy building a squad under Chris Knight who has returned to the hotseat.

The Lilywhites entertain Penzance at Poltair Park in their opener.

Newquay are also under new management in the shape of Shaun Middleton, but the Peppermints will have to wait until Saturday, August 19 to get started when Bodmin Town visit Mount Wise.

The other two sides not in action on the opening afternoon are Truro City Reserves, who like Newquay, requested no fixture, while Wendron United are likely to be in FA Cup action.

There are six other games on the opening weekend with the first game being Liskeard Athletic against St Dennis at Lux Park on Friday, August 4 (7.30pm).

Five other games take place at 3pm on Saturday, August 5.

Liskeard’s big rivals Dobwalls have a home game as Holsworthy are the visitors to Lantoom Park, while Bodmin welcome title hopefuls Bude Town.

Two of last season’s mid-table teams battle it out at Trefrew Park as Camelford entertain Callington Town while Launceston, who finished strongly under Neil Price after a difficult start, host Wadebridge Town at Pennygillam.

Sticker, who continue to punch above their weight at Step Six level, make the long trip down to Clifden Parc to tackle Mullion who are set for a second season back in the SWPL.

The fixtures are as follows: Friday, August 4 (7.30pm): Liskeard Athletic v St Dennis.

Saturday, August 5 (3pm): Bodmin Town v Bude Town, Camelford v Callington Town, Dobwalls v Holsworthy, Launceston v Wadebridge Town, Mullion v Sticker, St Austell v Penzance.
