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.”
