Truro City have appointed Leigh Robinson as manager with Michael Meaker as his assistant.
37-year-old Robinson has been at the Taunton Town helm for the past six years, where he has overseen a fantastic progression for the club. He told Truro City’s club website:
“I am really pleased to have this opportunity, along with Micheal Meaker, to join Truro City and help the club move forwards. As a management team we have had a very successful couple of years and are now hungry to prove ourselves at a higher level, which was the main attraction for the move.
“We are, of course, aware that there has been a lot of uncertainty and upheaval at the club in the last few months with the stadium move and the management team leaving early on in the season. However, we also have to be single-minded in our approach to moulding the team into what we want it to be and start winning football matches despite all the off-field stuff and this is what we’ll be looking to do quickly.
“The chairman has shown a great deal of faith in us as a management team and we are determined to repay that by working hard, making key decisions and getting the team on an upward curve ASAP. We are very much inheriting the squad that was built by Lee Hodges and Chris Todd over the summer and it will take a couple of weeks to fully assess things and work out the best way forwards.
“But, we are certainly looking forward to meeting and getting to know the players as well as seeing what they have to offer on the pitch in the coming weeks as we look to put our stamp on things.”
