That is all from me this week. Hope you enjoyed it. Hope to see you next time

5:07pm

Taylor: "To get nine points from our opening three games, which were all tricky on paper, is great."

5:06pm

Taylor: "We upped the tempo in the second half and our boys have good fitness and it showed in the end as the game got stretched."

5:05pm

Taylor: "When we got the penalty, I did turn and say to the guys on the bench we'll see if it will be our day or not after he chances we had already missed."

5:04pm

Just spoke to Sid Taylor. Here's a few things of what he said

4:50pm

Just waiting to have a chat with Helston boss Sid Taylor to get his thoughts on the game. I'm sure he will be happy

4:45pm

That's now three wins out of three for Helston. Fully deserved it today

4:43pm

Helston 3-0 St Dennis

4:41pm

Michael Davies was given ball by Thomson. He then wiggled in box holding off defenders before firing home. 3-0 Helston

4:40pm

90min: GOAL HELSTON

4:38pm

87min: Helston bring off Ash Stidwell who is suffering from cramp and bring on Collick

4:37pm

85min: Saints angry with ref again as they feel Carl Richards was dragged back by Howlett as he latched onto another long ball. No foul called

4:35pm

83min: Carl Richards hits over after accidentally getting in way of Stone's effort from 25 yards out. The Saints striker was so surprised to find the ball at his feet, he nearly fell over

4:32pm

81min: Saints replace Sleeman with Bird

4:31pm

80min: neat turn and strike by Michael Davies is pushed wide by Allen

4:29pm

76min: Lloyd sends a free kick just outside Helston area over

4:27pm

75min: Helston replace Dan Stidwell with Michael Davies

4:26pm

It's that man again. Goldsworthy beats offside trap much to bewilderment of St Dennis and rounds Allen to score

4:25pm

74min: GOAL HELSTON

4:22pm

71min: Sleeman's corner from right nearly blows in with the wind catching it. Near comedy

4:21pm

69min: top long ball into Helston box finds Sleeman, but Howlett is too big a wall to get past. Carl Richards is angry he didn't get pass

4:19pm

68min: Helston bring on Russell for Adlono

4:18pm

67min: Saints furious after Carl Richards looks like he was pulled back when in in a one-on-one, but nothing given

4:17pm

66min: Lloyd booked after foul on Ben Stidwell

4:16pm

64min: St Dennis sub. Scott Brown off for Ben Douglas. Looks like a tactical shift

4:14pm

63min: Lloyd keeps hold of the ball in Helston penalty area before hitting a shot. His effort flies over though

4:13pm

61min: slip up at back let's Carl Richards in for visitors. From a few yards out, he hits shot but Webster gets hand to it

4:11pm

Helston have deserved the lead. Should not have taken a penalty to give them lead, but sometimes you gave to take it as it comes

4:08pm

Goldsworthy hits spot kick to Allen's right, he gets hand on it but can't stop ball. 1-0 Helston 

4:07pm

57min: GOAL HELSTON

4:07pm

Allen is booked after getting treatment

4:06pm

55min: PENALTY TO HELSTON. Allen brought down Westgarth who was in on goal. Got a knock is process

4:03pm

50 min: Another good chance goes begging for Helston. Young runs into box with plenty of space, but fires wide across goal

4:01pm

49min: From Helston corner, Allen flaps at ball. Howlett then has first effort blocked, then sends his second over the bar

3:56pm

Second half starts

3:55pm

Slight delay to restart as toddlers are on the field seeing one of their dads

3:54pm

Both sides back out on pitch

3:53pm

Spitting with rain now in Helston on top of the wind. Not good for someone with as much hair as me

3:49pm

Helston have looked much better in the first half, but squandered chances. They had wind advantage too. They might be regretting missed opportunities come full time

3:45pm

Helston 0-0 St Dennis

3:44pm

45min: GREAT SAVE BY WEBSTER! Sleeman crosses after counter attack. Carl Richards gets boot to it but Webster makes himself big and blocks it

3:43pm

43min: Ash Stidwell nearly curls a shot from left hand side of penalty area just wide

3:42pm

42min: best chance for St Dennis. Carl Richards turns Howlett in box. Webster slides out to block shot, but it is still bobbling around. Webster eventually grabs it. Bit of afters with Ash Stidwell and Richards. No cards though

3:38pm

39min: it's Howletts time to try a shot from 25 yards or more for Helston, but Allen saves comfortably again

3:34pm

35 min: Goldsworthy does well to keep control on left before sending ball into the box. He finds Dan Stidwell, but he hits it wide. Another good chance squandered

3:33pm

34min: TOP DOUBLE SAVE FROM ALLEN! First he pushes Ash Stidwell's well hit long ranger away and then smothers Westgarth's follow up. He's having a great game so far

3:30pm

31min: Dan Stidwell's cross from left finds Young in box, but his header does not trouble Allen

3:29pm

St Dennis don't seem to be able to create any chances at the moment. Every time they head into Helston's final third they either get dispossessed or caught offside

3:25pm

26min: Good spell of pressure here deep in Saints half nearly rewarded with a goal as Kirk Davies fizzes a shot towards goal, but Allen us equal to it

3:21pm

22min: TOP SAVE BY ALLEN! Goldsworthy is found in box with a long cross field ball. He composes himself then shoots, but Allen gets a boot to it

3:18pm

OUCHIES! Helston skipper Thomson gets a rather delicate part of body in the way of an attempted long ball. Felt that from here. Funny for everyone apart from the recipient

3:15pm

16min: CLOSE FOR GOLDSWORTHY! The goal machine is found by a through ball in box. No offside flag. Goldsworthy stabs ball past Allen, but it drifts wide

3:13pm

14min: poor clearance from Ben Stidwell puts hosts in trouble. Ball finds Lloyd who sends a shot off target from 20 yards out

3:11pm

11min: First real chance for Helston. Young turns and shoots in box, but effort is blocked. Ball rolls to Dan Stidwell, but he sends a shot over the bar

3:10pm

9min: Carl Richards makes run down right for Saints, but Howlett stands tall and tackles well in box 

3:07pm

Quite a stiff breeze going across the ground. Is strong enough to get hold off the ball at times. Hard to control possession for both sides

3:05pm

Some really good tackles going in early from Helston's back four. Getting it right from the start. Hopefully a good sign for the hosts

3:03pm

4min: Ash Stidwell gets ball about 25 yards out but rather than using options available to him, he shoots well wide

3:01pm

Early pressure deep in St Dennis territory. No chances inside first 120 seconds though

2:58pm

Here we go

2:56pm

Teams coming out to the pitch. About three minutes before kick off

2:55pm

So Westgarth goes straight into the Helston starting team. Will be interesting to see how he and Goldsworthy link up

2:51pm

St Dennis team: Allen, D Richard (c), Rowe, C Brown, Stone, S Brown, Sleeman, Hill, L Richard, Lloyd, C Richard

Subs: Douglas, Bird, Hawke, Banfield

2:50pm

Helston team: Webster, B Stidwell, K Davies, Thomson (c), Howlett, A Stidwell, Adlono, Young, Westgarth, Goldsworthy, D Stidwell

Subs: M Davies, Russell, Davey, Collick, Leech

2:41pm

News overnight is that Falmouth Town's Andrew Westgarth has moved over to Helston. Sid Taylor told me earlier in week he wanted to find someone to help partner Mark Goldsworthy upfront. Has he found his man?

Team line ups to come in a minute

2:39pm
