Wendron United earned themselves a spot in the second round of the Cornwall Senior Cup after winning 2-0 at Lizard Argyle on Saturday.

Rory Jarvis’ double ensured that Dron not only progressed to the next round but picked up their third successive win in the process, a welcome run after suffering defeat in each of their first four matches this season.

Manager Jack Greenwood said: “I felt we were in control and we knew they would be in our faces and on us and I think we started very well, but we then just dropped our levels a little bit.

"We took too long with the ball, didn’t move the ball quick enough and weren’t decisive enough going forward. Our final ball really let us down in the first half.

“The first goal came a little bit out of nothing, a header from a corner and I think from there we should have gone on to try and kill the game off sooner but we just weren’t clinical enough going forward which is frustrating, but the pleasing side of that was that we didn’t really look too troubled.”

Jarvis landed both goals in Wendron’s win on Saturday, with the frontman enjoying a mini purple patch after also scoring in the 3-2 Walter C Parson Cup win at Penzance last month.

Jarvis is one of a number of summer signings at Underlane, with boss Greenwood happy at how his new recruit has settled in.

“He’s a real handful up there,” Greenwood said. “He set up a couple of half decent attacks as well which we should have done better with but he always looks like a threat, he always look like he’s going to get a goal off scraps really so it’s great for him to have come in and settled so quick.”

Wendron have now booked their place in the second round of both the Senior Cup and the Walter C Parson League Cup in each of their last two games, but Greenwood is keen to ensure that his side’s league results improve, with Dron currently sitting 13th in the SWPL Division 1 West with just one win from five games.

Greenwood said: “I am still conscious of reminding the boys that we still lost our first four so I’m trying to keep us grounded and we’ve only actually won one league game.

“As nice as it is to have a distraction with the cup, it will be quite galling if we go down on Wednesday and lose to St Blazey.

“We know they’ll be a tough side. We’re under no illusions that it’s going to be a tough game for us and that could be back down to Earth with a bang if we don’t get a positive result.”
