After earning promotion and becoming a professional, Truro went into their first season in the Sky Bet League Two hoping to avoid relegation. Truro managed to finish 16th in the Sky Bet League 2, surpassing the media predication of 24th.
Next season, they are expected to be amongst the relegation candidates but with more experience as well as not having to adjust to being a professional club, Truro might be capable of achieving more.
Truro defeated Havant & Waterlooville in the FA Cup 1st Round, winning 3-0 with Aiden O’Brien, Kelvin Etuhu and Kurtis March getting on the scoresheet. In the next round they were soundly defeated by Exeter, losing 3-1 in a very poor display.
In the first appearance in the Capital One Cup, Truro faced Aston Villa who found themselves relegated at the end of the previous Premier League season. In a match against a side two divisions above them, Truro never stood a chance, losing 6-0, continuing the clubs poor form displayed early in the season.
In the first appearance in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, Truro faced Sky Bet League 2 rivals Portsmouth losing 2-1 in a game in which Truro did well to compete in, with Portsmouth controlling possession from start to finish.
Chosen as the man to replace Truro icon Stewart Yetton, former Ireland U21’s player Aiden O’Brien did not let anyone down. After starting off poorly, O’Brien found his feet, finishing with 18 goals in 46 appearances.
As he continues to develop, it is expected that O’Brien will find more consistency in his performances, with many scouts suggesting he could develop into a player who is capable of playing higher level.
After signing from Skrill South side Braintree at the beginning of the year, Chez Isaac finished the season with 12 assists. Isaac also chipped in with 4 goals, proving a very valuable contributor throughout the season.
Ollie Chenoweth was awarded the Fans Player of the Year award after putting together some stellar performances throughout the season. Despite Truro conceding the sixth most goals during the Sky Bet League 2 season, if it wasn’t for Chenoweth they would have conceded much more.
Chenoweth has been at the club for a total of six seasons, playing 213 games for club during that time. He was awarded the vice-captaincy at the beginning of the season with the role improving his performance in the previous season, despite being promoted to a higher division.
