Goldsworthy welcomed back 'with open arms,' says blues boss Taylor
Helston boss Sid Taylor says striker Mark Goldsworthy was welcomed back to the club ‘with open arms,’ but admits his future remains in doubt, with Truro City’s intentions regarding his involvement at Treyew Road still unclear.
The White Tigers publicly announced the striker’s signing almost a month ago, but Goldsworthy (pictured) is yet to figure in a white shirt, and despite seeking clarification on his future from Truro boss Steve Massey, appears no closer to knowing whether he figures in his plans.
But Massey’s loss has been Helston’s gain. Since returning to Kellaway Park Goldsworthy has featured in each of the Blues last three games, scoring in two.
“I’ve spoken to him about it and at the moment he doesn’t know where he stands with them,” said Taylor. “He’s been left frustrated by what’s gone on up there, but to his credit he’s put his head down and he’s got on with things. We always said that the door was open for him here, and if he wanted to come back we’d welcome him with open arms.”

Taylor’s squad has also benefitted from the arrival of youngster Danny Ford from St Day, who came off the bench to score on his debut at the weekend, and Jamie Lightfoot, who has moved to the area from Scotland.
“Jamie’s trained with us before, but he’s had a hip injury which he’s coming back from. He’s a good addition,” Taylor said.
“Danny’s a big strong lad, he’s one for the future. We’re very pleased to have them both join, and they’ll help make the squad stronger.”
Helston’s recent revival has seen them move slowly but inexorably up the league, where they currently sit fifth.
But Taylor is careful not to get carried away, and said he had been pleased with the work ethic shown by his side over recent weeks.
“We’re not getting ahead of ourselves, because you can have a good run then you lose two or three games and the pressure’s back on,” he said.
“I think what the lads have realised is that if we get our heads down and match others for effort, our ability we see us through games.
“But if we go out and think ability alone will see us past teams, we’ll have problems. It’s about good, honest hard work.”
