April 2016 - Skrill Premier



Truro managed to ease any fear of relegation in the first fixture of the month by defeating Hereford 2-0 with Stewart Yetton scoring twice.

After a defeat to Wrexham, Truro only needed a draw in order to avoid relegation against Exeter. They managed to earn the point in a very physical 3-3 draw which saw Truro finish with six yellow cards and two injured players. The final game of the year saw Truro lose 3-1 to Forest Green with nothing on the line for either side.


League Table

Despite finishing just out of the relegation zone, Truro stayed up comfortably in the end.
YES! I knew you could save it! Great work staying afloat, that should be the springboard for you to advance up the table next year!

2015/16 Season Review

Skrill Premier

After being promoted, Truro were not only expected to be relegated by the media, but were picked as the team to come last at the end of the season. Truro managed to stay up in the end but it was evident that the FA Trophy campaign clearly had a draining effect on the clubs small squad over the course of the season.

Next season Truro will once again find themselves in a fight to stay in the Skrill Premier, but with more experience at the level they should find it easier second time around.

FA Cup

Truro defeated Salisbury to make it to the first round of the FA Cup but lost to Sky Bet League 2 side Stevenage 2-1 in an impressive display as they exited the competition.

FA Trophy

Despite Truro’s poor league form and small squad they managed to not only put together an impressive FA Trophy run but win the competition.

In the first round, Truro caused a major upset by defeated Dagenham and Redbridge who would finish on top of the Skrill Premier gaining promotion to the Sky Bet League 2. They continued to progress in the competition with Stewart Yetton’s hat-trick against Barnet in the second leg of the semi-final against Barnet proving the most impressive individual performance.

In the final, Truro dominated the first half and never looked in doubt as they claimed the FA Trophy with a comfortable 3-2 victory over FC Halifax.

Top Goalscorer

Stewart Yetton

After a very successful season in the Skrill South, many fans wondered if Stewart Yetton could handle playing at a higher level. Not only did he handle the step up, he surpassed his previous season in the lower division. Yetton scored 35 goals over the course of the season with 6 goals in 7 games in Truro’s FA Trophy run.

Most Assists

Jamie Beasley

Jamie Beasley was initially released after Truro was promoted to the Skrill Premier, but after not being able to sign any quality wingers in the off-season he was brought back. Beasley provided 21 assists throughout the season, linking up with Stewart Yetton time and time again over the course of the season.

Fans Player of the Year

Stewart Yetton

For the second year in a row this award has been claimed by Stewart Yetton. Aside from the impressive number of goals, Yetton also provided 11 assists throughout the season.

With Yetton now 30 years of age, it will be interesting to see what his role is at Truro City in the future.
What a season, Griffo!
Indeed, the league form may not have been superb, but your survived and brought home some silverware. I've had muuuuch worse seasons. ;)

Very good season! Let's hope you can get into the Football League next season!

Truro Suffer Financial Issues

Truro City Chairman Pete Masters has announced that the club is currently struggling financially and that changes will be occurring for the upcoming season.

In order to deal with the financial stress, Truro City has been forced to lower its wage budget from the previous season and will also be looking for other avenues to increase revenue. "We've got to keep things under control, it's very easy to get carried away," said Masters.

With Truro coming close to relegation last season, it will be a considerable task for them to maintain their place in the Skrill Premier again this season.
stupid board! can't bear to put any money in the club!
Good first season in the skrill prem your players will have a better understanding of the league and will hopefully push on for promotion great story so far keep it up
Hopefully you can get more money soon.
great season! shame about the money issues....invite some massive teams to come play you, and then play easier matches afterwards to bring morale back up
Somedays, all you have to say is "stupid board rooms." Wait til they have to run a club with less funds.

Brighton Announce Link With Truro

Brighton & Hove Albion chairman Tony Bloom has announced today that a link has been developed between his club and Truro City. “Truro City has been fighting to stay up in the Skrill Premier while playing positive football. If some of our younger players can go on loan and learn to fight like the Truro players, while playing the game the right way, that will see our young players develop into the kind of footballers we want at our club" said Bloom

Brighton will pay Truro £15,575 annually as well as Brighton having the option to send players on loan to the club. Truro will also host an annual friendly between the two clubs in a match where Truro will keep all gate receipts.

“This deal is something we have been working on for quite some time and we feel it is a step in a positive direction for the financial future of the Truro City Football Club.” said Truro City Chairman Pete Masters.
