Bodmin Town have completed a year unbeaten in the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League premier division following their 2-0 victory at struggling Cullompton Rangers on Saturday.

That was their 34th win out of 36 games without a league defeat and came courtesy of goals from Adam Carter (48 minutes) and Chris Luxton (53, penalty).

Bodmin were last beaten in the premier division by Launceston, 2-1 at Pennygillam, on October 29 2011.

The only teams to have taken points from them in the last 12 months are St Blazey and Saltash United, who both earned draws at Bodmin's Priory Park during September.

Bodmin will put their unbeaten record on the line again next Wednesday evening when they travel to Blaise Park to face St Blazey, who suffered a 2-0 defeat at Launceston on Saturday.

That means Leigh Cooper's Clarets remain top of the table with 31 points from 16 games, two points ahead of Bodmin, who have played five games fewer.

Third-placed Camelford escaped from Lux Park with a 1-1 draw after a poor performance against a Liskeard Athletic side who were unlucky not to take all three points after hitting the woodwork twice in the last four minutes.

Mark Gusterston had given the Camels a 70th minute lead but Liskeard substitute Chris Clarke equalised seven minutes from time.

Saltash United were 3-0 winners over Tavistock at Kimberley Stadium, while Ivybridge moved up to third after a 3-0 win over struggling Torpoint.

Newquay's improvement continued with a 4-2 win at Bovey Tracey, but the misery went on for managerless Falmouth Town, who crashed to a second successive 3-0 home defeat in five days, this time to Witheridge.

Rock bottom Penzance suffered their 15th successive defeat, going down 2-1 against Liverton United at Penlee Park.
