Truro City: Torquay United talks over ending groundshare are concluded

Treyew Road
Treyew Road has a capacity of 3,200 (1,675 seats).

Truro City have reached an agreement to play all their matches at Treyew Road for the rest of the season.

The club had been sharing with National League South rivals Torquay United, but plans to build a supermarket on their ground fell through late last year.

The White Tigers beat St Albans City 2-1 on Tuesday in their first league game in Cornwall this season.

City chairman Peter Masters had said he had been "discussing divorce proceedings with Torquay".

"It is understood that the ground owners, JIL, are still in talks with Lidl and there is still a strong possibility that the development will still go ahead sometime in the future," a club statement said.

"We take this opportunity of thanking Clarke Osbourne and Torquay United for hosting both our league and FA Cup matches this season to date and wish them all the success in gaining promotion back to The National League."

Truro's next league game at Treyew Road will be against Weston-super-Mare on Saturday 19 January, while they could play in Cornwall on Tuesday 15 January if they draw at Stockport County in the FA Trophy on Saturday.

City said they would return to their Cornish home in November, but had yet to formalise the end of their agreement.

Truro had an attendance of 272 for Tuesday's game at Treyew Road, as goals from Tyler Harvey and Louis Rooney saw them stay two places above the National League South relegation zone.

The figure was 220 more than the number of 'home' fans that saw their fixture with their landlords at Torquay on New Year's Day when there were 2,760 'away' supporters.

City have struggled to pull in crowds of more than double figures at their temporary home, with supporters facing a 200-mile round-trip from Truro to South Devon.
