Wendron United's thumping 11-0 win over Ludgvan on Saturday will have caught the attention of most local football fans, but it was one of the team's substitutions that took on added significance.

Simon Williamson, the youngest son of club chairman Kevin, who died two weeks ago, replaced TJ Walter ten minutes into the second half of Saturday's game.

He almost capped off his appearance with a goal when he got his head on Tom Martin's cross, but Ludgvan 'keeper Josh Etheredge-Ryan pulled off a superb reaction save.

Manager Jack Greenwood said: “It was a good opportunity to bring Simon with us and I said to him that we wouldn’t be able to guarantee minutes but I’m really glad we were able to bring him on. I know he wanted to play and he’s still a very good footballer so it wasn’t like it was a hardship or a difficult decision.

"I’m just gutted he didn’t get his goal, he came close and I will be giving him a bit of stick for lasting half an hour before coming off injured, but it was nice to be able to get him on the pitch today.”

Greenwood also expressed his happiness with the professional job his side did on Saturday.

“I’m pleased with how professional we were," he said. "Credit to Ludgvan for always managing to fulfil their fixtures and everything else but what I wanted us to do today was be ruthless and be professional as well and we’ve done that.

“Obviously 11-0 is a very good result for us but it’s the attitude that pleased me.”

Rory Jarvis stole the headlines on Saturday with six goals, and Greenwood is pleased with the striker's impact this year.

“Rory’s had a really good week on and off the pitch in his own personal life, and to mark it with six goals today has been fantastic, so I’m really pleased for him," Greenwood said.

“Rory’s been fantastic for us since he joined and has got a lot of goals, but in the last couple of weeks I know he has high standards for himself and will have been disappointed that he didn’t score against Porthleven and that he wasn’t able to net last week [against Liskeard].

"I said to him that his performances have still been really good and that he’s still making those chances, so we’ve not been disappointed with that but it’s just not quite falling for him, so today getting six goals, he’s a striker, he’s ruthless and he’ll be pleased with that.

"He won’t care how they’ve come or who they’ve come against, it’s six goals, so hopefully that’s a springboard for him for next week.”
