Falmouth Town boss Andrew Westgarth says that the "hunger" of his players is one of the key reasons that his team have had such a flying start to the new season.

On Friday evening they produced their sixth win in a row - their best run under Westgarth's management - when they beat Helston 2-0 in the Walter C Parson League Cup.

"The boys have real hunger to prove themselves and do well and that's a massive thing. We also have energy and pace all over the pitch and a good spine to the team," he said.

Two of their young stars, Marcello Jones and Harry Clarke, were the match winners on Friday in the continued absence of top scorer Jordan Annear, who will also miss upcoming games against the league's top three sides - Plymouth Argyle Reserves, Saltash and Plymouth Parkway.

Annear travelled abroad to a wedding last week and will now miss the final fixtures for September to celebrate both his and his girlfriend's 21st birthdays.

This Saturday's opponents, Argyle, suffered their first defeat of the season on Saturday, surprisingly losing 4-3 at Cullompton having won 12-0 against Stoke Gabriel just four days earlier.

Their first team's mercurial midfielder Graham Carey played in the 12-0 massacre, having been suspended for three games during a League 1 match.

The 28 year old Irishmen is eligible to play for the reserves while he serves his ban with the first team, so it's possible that he could be with the squad travelling to Bickland Park on Saturday.

"You never know what sort of side you're going to play with Argyle, but we did quite well against them last year, beating them 4-1 at home and only losing 2-1 late on up there," added Westgarth.

Town are in fourth spot having lost only one of their seven matches, against title holders Tavistock on the opening day of the season.
