Helston U15 are celebrating a double winning season after defeating Looe Town 1-0 in the final of the County Cup.

A solitary goal from James Henwood secured the trophy for Helston on Sunday, June 12 at Falmouth Sports Hub after they beat Mousehole on penalties in the semi-final earlier in the week.

Helston had earlier won the Kernow Youth League Under 15 Premiership after winning a play off final match against title challengers Goonhavern.

Speaking to the Packet, their Manager Martyn Daughtery said: "In the County Cup we couldn't have had a harder run. We beat Torpoint, we annihilated Goonhavern, then we had Mousehole and Looe in the final. It was a tough game on Sunday. It was like wow when we won! Where we have come from in 12 months is extraordinary it's unbelievable really, and we look we will be able to build on this too."

The side are a combination of Helston and Hayle under 15s after the two sides merged at the start of the year. Daughtery believed that this makes their achievements even more impressive this season. He said: "They were chuffed to bits, we were happy just to try and be in the mix this season and then challenge for it next year. But we have just gone from strength to strength.

"As the game went it was an even contest. I thought we were the better side in the second half, but again it still could have gone either way.

"There were some really good performances from our lads. Young Dylan Mitchell, our Captain is a really good lad. With him then Sam Pallet in the middle, a decent player who drives the team. Then Charlie Hendy played well up top on his own, it all fell really nicely for us."

Daughtery was grateful to a number of people who have supported his young side across the season: "There are lots of thankyou's that we owe really, Steve Massey has fully supported me with it. Lee Summers for bringing his Hayle team across to merge with us, he has done a lot of training and I have helped with the managing.

"Next year we are hoping to go stronger again, then me and him will be joint managers and then we will look to get another coach in. We are fortunate bunch Dave Simms at Helidecks he helps fund a lot of our kit. The boys are lucky in the sense that they get treated like mini pros and they give us it back in their performances.

"Two trophies and runners up in the league cup, the only reason we lost that was because it came too quickly we had played the league winners final on the Thursday then we had to play that game on a Sunday and you could tell the boys were a bit leggy. But we would have taken that at the start of the season all day long."
