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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
