WAYNE Quinn will be taking nothing for granted when Mousehole entertain local rivals Penzance at Trungle Parc on Boxing Day (11am).

The Seagulls continued their record breaking start to the season with their 14th straight SWPL Division One West win at Dobwalls last Saturday.

But ahead of next week's much anticipated derby, Quinn is anticipating a difficult test against his former club.

He said: "I have a lot of time for Penzance, I know a lot of people down there and I'm sure they will be determined to end this run we're on.

"It all makes for what should be a great game, and hopefully we can get a good crowd down there too."


Despite having several players laid low with a mystery bug, including regular goalkeeper Dexter King, Mousehole ran out deserved 4-1 winners at Lantoom Park. Quinn revealed he should have a fully fit squad to choose from.

He said: "Considering what we had I thought the lads did ever so well to go up to Dobwalls and play the way they did."

Penzance manager Dean Mooney will be looking for a response from his players last weekend's 6-1 defeat at home to Truro City.

The Magpies have failed to win in their last seven league games, their last victory coming in a 2-1 win at Bude Town on September 14.

Quinn said: "Penzance haven't been getting the results, but make no mistake about it, there will be no love lost on Boxing Day."
