No link as to yet, but am speaking to one of the players and he says that they are 99.9% going to get shut down today..... whitch leads me to my two points...
Point 1: Thank god we did no get Heany as chairman of Plymouth Argyle.
Point 2: When and If they get shut down can we capatalise on getting any youth players of thiers or possible Hodges as a coach ? Or gain anything from being the only league club close to Truro?
TBH Truro didnt gain much from being the only BSS team near Truro.Were getting similar gates to ST Austell in the peninsular league.Which I guess is where they'll be playing next season?
Truro were averaging 500-600
, there is no way on earth St Austell are getting anywhere near that in the peninsula.
Like hell they were, their average in the BSS is 388 StAustell pulled in 500 plus for a bloody SW peninsular game last season.As mush as I find their demise sad their support is rather pathetic.My point is StAustell would have probably quadruple the crowds given the same level of league. You only have to take a look at the records to see where the football tradition is,StAustell were pulling in 17,000 back in the fifties just for a SW league match,thats more than the entire population of Truro now.
I havent seen their crowds this season but im pretty sure last they were getting 500-600?
But yes i do agree the crowds even at 500-600 that is poor consdering the success they have had. Very poor indeed they should be nearing 1000 on a regular basis
but it hasnt and i think a lot of that is down to Heaney, a lot of people in Cornwall dislike Truro City because of Kevin Heaney so they probably wont get many neutrals attending, it might change if they survive this crisis however their name has been tarnished.
