HELSTON chairman Paul Hendy has rubbished rumours that his club are offering four figure sums to sign on players.

In a week in which Kirk Davies has returned to Kellaway Park following his move to St Austell earlier in the season, Hendy has refuted claims appearing on website forums.

He said: "We are not going to do anything that will put the longevity of the club at risk. We're on a limited budget and some of the figures being bandied around are absolutely ridiculous.

"We have 22 teams at the club and we're very much on a journey, in which we hope our excellent facilities will attract players."

Last week this newspaper reported the Massey brothers' intentions to bring in some experienced players and they have acted quickly to bring 30 year-old Davies back at the club.

"We were obviously disappointed to lose Kirk to St Austell as he was our club captain. We respected his decision to try something different but we're delighted to have him back in the fold," Hendy added.

Davies was part of the squad for last night's SWPL Premier trip to Torpoint and he'll be back at Kellaway Park for Helston's first Saturday league fixture of the season at home to bottom club Witheridge this weekend.

In Division 1 West, Porthleven entertain Holsworthy on Saturday, while Wendron United make the long trip to fifth-placed Plymouth Marjons following their 3-0 defeat to St Blazey last Wednesday.
