Porthleven's first team manager Jamie Webb is 'super excited' to be taking charge of the club as the side prepare for the 2022/23 season in the St Piran West League.

In a statement at the end of the season Port's chairman Rob Hichens confirmed that Webb, who previously managed the under 18's side, would be taking over as manager of the first team after the departure of Liam Chapman who has moved away with family.

Now after winning the St Piran League Cup at the end of last season, the Manager has begun his new season preparations. Speaking to the Packet, Webb said: "I am super excited, I think over the season we got better and better and the team spirit improved too.

"I have really enjoyed being with them, being part of the team and trying to grow the youth through. With my running the 18s it seems like a natural progression, especially with so many of them as part of the first team I just think it's brilliant and I can't wait to start.

"As a club and a squad the youth is very important. The youngsters have been a big part of where we are, how the season finished and how well we did in the cup run. They will be a massive part of the team and hopefully the future of Porthleven."

Porthleven have began getting ready for the new season already with pre season training commencing with two training sessions a week starting on Tuesday, June 7. Port initially have four matches lined up for their warm up matches with games forecasted against Wendron United firsts, Mullion, Mousehole Reserves and Praze.

Looking ahead to the new campaign, Webb said: "I think everyone's ambition should be to head for the top and do the best you can with the team. To get a good cup run going again, that was amazing. I have high ambitions, I want to do as well as I can for these lads and the club."
