Porthleven's First Team Coach Jamie Webb believes there is 'a real togetherness' amongst his side as they prepare for their St Piran League Cup Semi-Final against Mousehole Development on Wednesday, March 16. 

The semi-final takes place at Hayle's Trevassack Park and see's two of the form sides in the table go head-to-head. Porthleven are unbeaten in six matches whereas Mousehole have won their last four in a row. 

Speaking to the Packet Webb said: "It is really exciting at the moment, there is a real togetherness amongst the players and the whole club. We have gone through that dark stage and now the rebuilding is working well and everyone is on board with our ideas, bringing the youth in. Trying to develop them, it seems to be working really well."

Porthleven progressed to the semi-final after beating Saltash Borough 4-3 on penalties after the scores were 4-4 at the end of extra time. 17-year-old Dan Parker stole the show on the day scoring a hat trick as well as the winning penalty to cap off a magnificent performance. The talisman has notched 12 league goals so far this season and Webb has been impressed with the striker's progress. 

"He has come on leaps and bounds." He began. "He seems to be getting more confident, I think he enjoys being among the older lads, they are taking him under their wing and are pushing him on as well. The things they say and the encouragement helps. He has been outstanding so far this season. 

"I would say that with Dan being the striker scoring the goals he is getting all the accolades but we have had two others that strat pretty much every game who have been outstanding as well. In the quarter-final, we had six-under 18s in that squad. 

"The youth are shining at the moment. We are trying to do more with young players. It is brilliant. Captain Dan Greet needs a mention for things like that, he is such a good player, he could play at a higher level if he wanted to. He is pushing for the youngsters, giving them confidence by taking them under his wing."

When the sides met earlier in the season Mousehole triumphed to a 7-1 win, however, they are now below Porth in the table. 

When asked what he expects from his opposition Webb said:  "It is a difficult one because we have seen many different results come with them. You see some games where they are scoring for fun and other games are a lot tighter so it is a difficult one to read. 

"We aren't too worried about the opposition we are just going to do what we can and hopefully, the preparation will be right and hopefully, we can get a result at the end of the day."

Kick-off at Hayle is at 7:30, if the scores are level at full time the game will be decided by extra time and if necessary penalties.
