KEEP AN EYE OUT HERE FOR SOME BIG NEWS COMING
WHAT DO YOU RECKON - SHOULD THIS HAVE BEEN DISALLOWED??
GOAL OR NOT?
Truro City Football Club are pleased to announce two major developments to its supporters, stakeholders and the wider Cornish community.
Firstly, full ownership of the football club has been transferred to a Canadian consortium, who also hold ownership of Cornwall RLFC, the Duchy’s professional rugby league club. The group are thrilled to acquire a football club with such a rich history, tradition and most of all, one with such an exciting future.
The club wish to place on record our thanks to Dicky Evans and the previous ownership for the work they have done in ensuring Truro City’s survival through the turbulence of the covid-19 pandemic, whilst steering the club throughout its time in exile over the past three seasons.
“We are delighted to complete the takeover of Truro City Football Club,” said incoming executive chairman Eric Perez. “As the new custodians of Cornwall’s highest ranking football club, we are fully committed to playing our part within the exciting future of the beautiful game in the Duchy.”
Most significantly, and after three long seasons in exile, we are over the moon to announce that Football’s Coming Home – Truro City will be moving back to Truro next season. The club will begin the 2024-25 season at the Langarth Village site, using temporary infrastructure whilst the new ground is built.
“The club stands on the cusp of a new dawn with the move back to Cornwall,” Perez added. “The team, under the trusted leadership of our manager Paul Wotton, produced wonderful results on the pitch last season in winning promotion back to the National League South.
“The goal is to continue the club’s progress by supporting the delivery of a facility that befits our team’s standing, our accomplishments, and most importantly our ambition.”
