Helston skipper's warning
HELSTON skipper Dan Jenkin will be taking nothing for granted ahead of Saturday's local derby against Mullion in Jolly's Drinks Cornwall League Division 2 West, writes Lee Hall.
On paper, Jenkin and his team-mates, currently second in the table, will be expected to beat a Mullion team that are bottom after recording one league win this season.
But, according to Jenkin, Saturday's game at Garro Lane (2pm) is far from a foregone conclusion.
He said: "Of course, it's a game people will look at and expect us to win.

"But it's not as simple as that. We slipped up when Mullion beat us last season and I'm sure they'll be wanting to do it again.
"It's a local derby, which always makes things a bit lively.
"We've started the season well, we don't worry about the opposition, we'll just be concentrating on our own game."
Helston moved up to second in the table following Saturday's 53-run win against Falmouth (match report page 113).
However, they will be without opener Justin Matthews on Saturday, while Tom Retallack is also unavailable. They will, though, be boosted by the return of Tyler Lambert.
Jenkin said: "We've got a couple of players out, but it's a massive boost to have Tyler Lambert back."
