Withycombe are set to travel to table-topping Wellington on Saturday (March 10) for their latest Tribute Cornwall and Devon League outing.

Just one game survived the snow last weekend and that was the fixture at Hayle where Plymstock Albion Oaks recorded a 20-13 success.

After the trip to Wellington, Withy will have another six games to complete their league campaign.

They visit Tavistock on March 17 before back-to-back home games with Pirates Amateurs (March 24) and Penryn (March 31).

They visit Wessex on April 7, before their final home league game of the season – the April 14 visit to Raleigh Park of Plymouth Argaum. Withy end their season on April 21 with a visit to Bude.

Withycombe head into Saturday’s visit to Wellington sitting sixth in the table, looking to score for the first time this season against the table-toppers.

When Wellington visited Raleigh Park back in November they won 23-0 and that was the only game so far this season in which Withy failed to score.
