Wendron United will be one of eight names in the hat for the quarter-final draw of the Cornwall Senior Cup on Saturday.

Scott Palmer, Cameron Wheat, TJ Walter, Joe Souch and Finn Robinson all scored as Dron eased to a 5-0 win at home to St Stephens Borough to book their place in the last eight.

The draw will take place immediately after Perranwell’s tie with St Austell this Saturday, and unless Combination League side Perranwell can cause a major upset of the 14-time winners, Wendron will be going into it as the lowest-ranked side remaining.

Manager Jack Greenwood said: “From the club’s point of view it’s a great achievement to be in the quarter-finals of the Senior Cup and on any given day you don’t know what can happen. It’s great for us and if nothing else it keeps that winning mentality going.

“It was a really good day yesterday [Saturday], good for the club, good for the team. We’ll wait for that [the quarter-final draw] with bated breath and it will be interesting to see who we get.

“It’s something we can look forward to and focus on as well but it just keeps that winning run going.”

Dron will now be casting their focus back on league matters ahead of Saturday’s game at home to St Dennis (kick-off 2.15pm), and three points could see the Underlane side move as high as fifth should results go their way.

If Dron avoid defeat they will have gone ten games without losing over a three-month period, with their last defeat coming against Dobwalls in the League Cup on October 20.

The Saints won 4-2 in the reverse fixture at Boscawen Park on September 1 as Dron slipped to their third straight loss at the start of the season, but Dron have won seven and drawn two of the 11 games since then in what has been a fantastic turnaround.

“It’s going to be a real test to see where we’re at,” Greenwood said. “I know we’ve just played Wadebridge and Porthleven and not lost but St Dennis I’m always fearful that if you get them on the right day then you get at them more, if you get the on the wrong day they can tear you apart.

“They’re a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde side but they are a very good side.

“If we get a result against them then we can go above them in the league or we will do if we win our games in hand.

“It’s a really big game for us on Saturday because they’re the team that could end our unbeaten streak with a bit of a bump, they’ve got that capability. We’ll be right up against it but I think being at home will help.”
