Despite all the recent troubles surrounding the club, Truro has announced that they will be upgrading Treyew Road ahead of the new season.

Treyew Road will be capable of holding 1,000 more fans with the club increasing the standing room at the ground. The upgrade has been approved in order to meet the minimum requirements in order to participate in the Sky Bet League 2, with the stadium capacity requirements increased for the upcoming season.

Truro City chairman David Cardoza announces the expansion of Treyew Road


“In order for the club to overcome the recent issues it has faced, we must continue on as if it is business as usual” said Truro chairman David Cardoza. “This expansion will see us meet the league requirements but also give us a larger capacity for when the bigger clubs visit” he added.

Truro will face Shrewsbury at Treyew Road in the first fixture of the Sky Bet League 2 season on the 4th of August, with the expansion set to be completed on 24th of August.
ooh nice!
Another expansion, great to see some positives despite some big negatives
Nice, always good to see your stadium expanding
New seats! Hopefully some new fans! Glad to see Truro growing!
Big congrats on getting Truro City to League 2, good luck against Shrewsbury

Don't know where the expansion will fit though as the main road is right beside the ground :)
You can now officially say that thousands of fans come to see Truro ;)

Former Truro player Billy Jones has joined the backroom staff, after being appointed as the clubs director of football. It is the first time Truro has had someone in the role, with the clubs continual progression allowing for the recruitment of more staff.

Jones played for numerous clubs, pulling on a jersey for Leyton Orient, Kidderminster, Exeter, Crewe, Cheltenham, Newport Co, Burton over 18 years of his career before signing with Truro in 2015. Jones became a cult hero to the fans, especially after the 2016-17 season which saw him named as the fans player of the year after some terrific performances.

“Despite the current situation with Matthew Etherington, my aim is still to have our backroom staff to be from Cornwall or former Truro players.” said Truro manager Chris Griffin “It allows players who join our club to understand they are joining not just a football club, but a community.” he added.

“I was thrilled when David (Cardoza) and Chris (Griffin) offered me the role, I was very enthusiastic in regards to remaining with the club that has brought me so much joy towards the end of my career." said Jones. “I hope to stay at the club and help it continue to grow and move up the divisions.” he added.
