Wendron United are on course for their highest-ever finish in the South West Peninsula League after coming from behind to beat Plymstock United 3-2 on Saturday.

The 'Dron's highest finish to date is their ninth-place finish in 2015/16, with Saturday's win putting them five points and three places above Penzance who currently occupy that spot.

Manager Jack Greenwood said: "The boys showed really good character to get back into it with two quick-fire goals and the second goal was a fantastic strike, but overall the attitude, we just kept believing we kept playing the right way and the boys did what I asked them to do and I'm really pleased that, against a tough side that do like to play and are in your face, we showed a good attitude."

TJ Walter and Cameron Wheat were in top form at the weekend, with both players a constant thorn in the Plymstock defenders' sides while Wheat scored the team's opening goal.

"I was really pleased with TJ," Greenwood said. "TJ had a good game last week but had a tough game in that he missed a couple of chances that you'd normally expect him to put away. So for him to play like he did today and get involved in a couple of goals, albeit loosely, he looked lively, he looked sharp for us.

"Cam has been excellent all season for us, he just looks such a threat and as a full-back you can never rest on the ball because he just seems to be so robust for a little lad, he just seems to nick the ball from you."

Will Paul stole the headlines with an excellent goal from 40 yards to level the scores at 2-2 midway through the second half.

Paul has been a recent addition in the first team after stepping up from the reserves, and came off the bench on Saturday to score the all-important leveller, with Greenwood taking the opportunity to praise the youngster.

He said: "We're a club that can't go and sign players from surrounding clubs and offer them money and we have to look after our own. Will is a credit to the club and is a credit to the work the second team managers are doing. He joined the club this year and I've noticed that he's done really well at training this year and Josh McDonald and Andrew Mitchell have given glowing reports this season and arguably he's been their player of the season.

"It's really good that we've got the second team in the Combo now and that step up is just slightly easier for the boys that do make it."

Wendron face a daunting trip to Mousehole this weekend, with the Seagulls making a late play for the league title after winning all eight of their league games so far in 2019 and hammered fifth-place Wadebridge Town 6-0 on Saturday.

The Dron will be seeking revenge after losing at home to Mousehole on the opening day of the season, and were thrashed 6-0 in this fixture last year.

"We are much better side now and my fear is that they were a good side then and they are a better side now," Greenwood said. "I feel like we're more ready for it, the players have got more of an identity now, they've got a much better way of playing, we're more confident, we're in better form.

"We do owe them one, we lost heavily there last year and lost 3-0 at the beginning of the season so it's about time we got revenge on them."
