Helston Athletic boss Steve Massey paid tribute to in-form forward Mark Goldsworthy after the Blues' 2-0 victory at home to Axminster Town in the FA Vase second qualifying round on Saturday.

Goldsworthy converted from the spot in the 90th minute to net his 12th goal of the season and finally seal a hard-earned victory after Scott Beattie had given the hosts the lead.

"I think certainly in our last two seasons at the football club, it was that type of game and that type of tempo and how the way the game was going we would have, at best, got a draw or probably have lost, but we've got a goalscorer now.

"I've said many times that we just need somebody who could put the ball in the back of the net, but when you've got somebody like Goldy [Goldsworthy] that's always the case.

Massey also praised defender Hugh Howlett for his positive attitude on the touchline despite being left out of the squad for the tie.

"He was hurting and he was disappointed, but Hughie Howlett's attitude is the reason why we will be successful this year," he said, "because we need that type of squad with his encouragement on the touchline.

"Hughie's attitude was as good as I could have wished for, and it was noted by all the players and that says something."

Porthleven co-manager Graham Blake was proud of his team's performance despite going out of the FA Vase with a 2-1 defeat at Saltash United.

Port went a goal down early in the second half but Charlie Young's tenth goal of the season saw them level and looked to send the game to extra-time, but Ryan Richards broke Porthleven hearts with a close-range finish late on.

"We are actually really disappointed to be honest," Blake said. "I'm not making excuses but of the 11 players that played, Matt Fox had a niggle, Ed Timmons played with two broken ribs and we had a few out, but the guys who played were absolutely outstanding and played with their hearts on their sleeves.

"Saltash have been together for five or six seasons and we've been together six months and you wouldn't have known it. We really put in a professional performance and outplayed them at times.

"They had their chances and we had ours but again it's fine margins that cost us the game really."

Wendron United manager Jack Greenwood hailed his side's second-half recovery in their 3-2 win at St Dennis in the SWPL Premier West.

The Dron were two goals down at half-time at Boscawen Park, but Joe Chapman and Jack Stocker's close-range finishes hauled them level before an own goal completed the turnaround late on.

"At half-time I was absolutely seething because we were just lazy and really poor I thought," Greenwood said, "but when you look back on it we actually finished the half relatively strong.

"As we tend to, we just turned up thinking that because we beat Newquay [on Tuesday] this would be easy and obviously it wasn't, but I can't fault the players' attitude and character in the second half, it was incredible.

"It was like I had made 11 substitutes at half-time and replaced the team because they were phenomenal in the second half."
