Truro City preview

Truro City vs Weymouth

National League South, Meadow Park, Thursday 18 April, 19.45 BST

Our tricky travels on the road show no sign of stopping, as we head to Truro City’s adopted Gloucester ground for our penultimate contest of the campaign.

This evening’s game gives us the opportunity to earn our first win since Mark Molesley’s return, as we look to build on our hard-fought point in South East London last weekend.

Though we are still yet to score during Mark’s new second stint, the gaffer was pleased with the “free-flowing” nature of how the team played on Saturday.

Having already beaten The Tinners by two goals in the reverse fixture this season, the opportunity to do the double over today’s antagonists is there for the taking.

Our opponents, however, have begun somewhat of a streak, winning their last two games.

Sat in 16th-place with 54 points, tonight’s opponents are breathing down our neck, with the opportunity to climb above us should they extend their streak to three consecutive wins.

With this being their first season back in England’s sixth-tier since the 2018/19 season, after their promotion last campaign, The Tinners’ potential mid-table finish would certainly be considered a success.

Their season can be considered all the more impressive given that this is only their sixth ever season in this division; two more victories could hand them a third-best position of 13th once the season ends.

The Cornish club have kept faith in manager Paul Wotton, who signed a “long-term” deal last November.

The Truro gaffer was snapped up in 2019, and was able to take them back into the National League South after four seasons.

However, an even more exciting announcement was made on the same day, when a “Canadian consortium” takeover, led by Cornwall RLFC chairman Eric Perez, was announced.

Alongside the takeover came a pledge for a new “3,000-capacity stadium,” which was approved in February this year.

The West-Country outfit began this season with an emphatic 5-2 win at home to Welling United, which included an Adam Porter brace.

While they haven’t quite been able to replicate their form every week since then, they have been somewhat consistent, adding 23 points to their already-earned 31 from their current halfway point during the campaign.

If there is any time to be a fan of today’s hosts, it would be now.


This particular contest is not one that is especially rich in history, with tonight being just our fourth match away to The Tinners.

Remarkably, all of our previous away visits have been in April, and tonight shows much the same.

However, this is where the fun facts finish; we are yet to even draw on Truro’s “home” turf, nevermind pick up all three points.

A win tonight would make somewhat of a statement…
