THE WAIT FINALLY ENDS



Having been inactive for one day shy of a calendar month due almost incessant rain, Penzance return to action this afternoon when Wendron United visit Penlee Park for a Kitchen Kit South West Peninsula League fixture (kick-off 3pm). 


Matches between the two sides are generally close. In each of the past two meetings the Magpies have manufactured two goal leads but been unable to close out victories. “Over the past few seasons, Wendron are a side who have always found a way to get a result against us,” rues Ashley Waters.


The manager must cope without experienced campaigners Mark Vercesi and Rolandos Samnauskas. However, tenacious midfielder Kam Collins returns after missing the win at Bude. Youth has served the Magpies well this season and teenagers Ollie Butler, Freddie Neaum, Charlie Palmer and Ashley Mead are named in a squad that also includes Will Trenoweth, Archie Reynolds, Alfie Turner, Liam Andrew, Silas Sullivan, James Butler, Darryl Richards, Tyler Tonkin and Jacob Trudgeon. “We are prepared and we are ready. Hopefully it'll be a big three points and yet another step in our journey this season,” concludes Waters.


Wendron are having another impressive season. They sit in fourth place and are one of only two teams to beat leaders St Austell. Manager Michael O’Neill has named a squad comprising of Zach Telling, Callum Bertrand, Isaac Dryburgh, Jack Stocker, Joe Souch, Josh Wood, Lucas Potts, Max Roberts, Ryan Kelly, Ryan Reeve, Russell May, Sam Young, Scott Palmer and Ethan Fearn.


Admission is £5 (concessions £3) and the gates open at around 2.15pm – the Jewson Bar will be open earlier. Drinks and refreshments, including hot pasties, will be available from the Black & White Cafe inside the ground. The matchday programme – the Magpie Review – will also be on sale for £1.50 providing pre-match reading.


See you there!
