Penzance start a run of five consecutive home games when they welcome Callington Town to Penlee Park this afternoon for a Kitchen Kit South West Peninsula League fixture (kick-off 3pm).
With seven wins out of eight matches in front of their own support this season, Penzance's home form has been stunning. Manager Ashley Waters will, however, be looking for a response after the surrender of a two goal lead in dropping points at bottom club St Dennis last Saturday.
“Earlier in the season we faced Callington away and produced a disappointing performance,” recalls Waters. “What I've seen in the last month is a Penzance side who have grown into a team who play with spirit and determination. Today we must show character and battling qualities against tough opponents. Our supporters are our 12th man so let's get behind the boys and get three points.”
Sixteen year old defender Ashley Mead is named in a home squad for the first time, and the ranks are also bolstered by the return of striker Michael Fitchett. Missing though are Charlie Willis (suspended), Frazer Cadman (injured) and James Butler (away), so the remaining fourteen are Mikey Flores, Will Trenoweth, Archie Reynolds, Liam Andrew, Mark Vercesi, Tyler Tonkin (captain), Silas Sullivan, Rolandos Samnauskas, Kam Collins, Jacob Trudgeon, Ollie Butler, Dylan Walter, Sam Fisher and Lewis Hitchens.
Callington manager Dean Southcott has named a squad comprising of Jamie Montgomery, Karl Peters, Harvey Barrett, Frazer Ferris, Fin Skews, Jan Kerr, Ben Langton (captain), Kevin McCallion, Adam Patterson, Kieran Prescott, Connor Pritchard-Lee, Joe Wakenshaw, Jordan Williams, Harry Southcott, Jamie Rowlands and Andre Rodyukov.
Admission is £5 (concessions £3) and drinks and refreshments, including hot pasties, will be available from the Black & White Cafe inside the ground.
The Jewson Bar will be open from lunchtime and a full edition of the Magpies Review will be on sale for £1.50.
See you down there!
