TROPHY SWITCH IS JUST A NIGHT-MARE
TRURO CITY are set to return home to Treyew Road this month for their FA Trophy first round tie, but their opposition WestonSuper-Mare are against the move.
The National League South side have been playing at Torquay United’s Plainmoor Stadium since the start of the season, but are now preparing to head back to Cornwall. Truro were kicked out of their ground by owners JIL, who wanted to build a Lidl supermarket on the site although plans have fallen through.
The club have the option to return home, but announced last week they wouldn’t be deciding until the new year as to not affect the team’s current good form.
However, following discussions with the National League and the FA, Truro have been given permission to play their Trophy tie on Saturday, December 15 at Treyew Road providing they receive the appropriate ground grade rating by Thursday 13, which is said to be a formality.
Weston have complained about the switch of stadium, saying: “We have objected to the move on the grounds that our supporters will have an additional 200-mile journey and that the Torquay United ground was an excellent venue for the tie. However, the decision has been made.”
