Truro City boss Paul Wotton has confirmed the departures of Moulaye N’Diaye, Noah Keats and James Ward.

Midfielder N’Diaye has left the club and returned to France. Wotton said: “It didn’t work for him at the football club.

“When I first took over at the football club, I said I want the right sort of characters for Truro City, and it didn’t work out the way either of us would have hoped.”

“The departure of Noah (Keats) is a real sad one. He’s got himself injured and won’t be fit for three to four months, so we’ve come to an agreement with Noah.

“Noah, in fairness, didn’t wan to keep picking up his wages when he wasn’t contributing on the pitch and I’m really sad to see Noah go. He was going to be an integral part of our squad and is always welcome at training if he ever needs help with rehab.”

Of defender James Ward, Wotton said: “James is leaving the club, although he’ll still be registered to us. I’m disappointed, I think James has made the step up in levels seamlessly.

“I think he’s been terrific, but ultimately it’s not for Wardy, and he wants to leave. We tried really, really hard to keep him but ultimately if players want to leave and don’t want to be part of it we have no other option but to let them go and get players who want to be committed.

“But I have to say, James has been fantastic for the football club in the short space of time he’s been here.”
