TAKE a look at our gallery of 54 photos from an enjoyable afternoon of cricket at Beacon Park on Sunday as two of Helston's top sports teams went head-to-head.

Helston Athletic Football Club made the daunting 150-metre journey across the road to neighbours Helston Cricket Club from a special 20-over match - all in the name of charity.

The odds may have been against the Blues, but Steve Massey's men defied the bookies to claim victory - although his plea for this win to count towards their ongoing 24-match winning run is likely to fall on deaf ears.

Steve Jenkin's cricketers were in to bat first and despite an early wicket they got off to a solid start, reaching 95-4.

But a couple of quickfire wickets saw them drop to 106-6, before a late rally ensured they reached 143-7 after their 20 overs.

The footballers began their reply with star man in team physio and Penzance batsman Tommy Sturgess at the crease, hitting 32 not out alongside Richard Full before retiring.

Luke Tripconey and Will Tinsley also hit the magical 30 as the Blues chased down their hosts, and despite a few quick dismissals – plus a stunning catch from Dan Jenkin on the boundary – late on, tenth batsman Barry Hennesy hit the winning runs on only his second ball to secure victory.

The special 20-over game marked the return of sport following the coronavirus lockdown and raised money for Helston and Lizard Foodbank.

The foodbank – which is part of the Trussel Trust network of foodbanks operated by Mustard Seed – is run by volunteers and provides non-perishable emergency food to local people in crisis.
