Chris Todd insists Truro City’s controversial ground move was not the sole reason why he and manager Lee Hodges sensationally quit the club on Tuesday, report Cornwall Live.

Just hours before the White Tigers were due to play Weston-super-Mare, Hodges and Todd informed chairman Pete Masters of their decision to leave the club, although they were in the dug-out as Truro played out a 1-1 draw that evening.

Truro’s controversial relocation to Torquay as part of the plans to build a Stadium for Cornwall that the club will use in future has not gone down well with everyone, but Todd says a culmination of things going back two years led to his decision to follow Hodges out of the exit door.

“I am led to believe – and so is Hodgey – that the club was making the right decision and Pete was going the right way about it by moving them to Torquay to then give the opportunity to then get the stadium up and built and ready for next season,” Todd told Cornwall Live.

“If that materialises, then he has lived up to his word and fair play to him. Obviously then, the club will be back in its true home of Cornwall and the club can move forward and I do wish that to happen.

“I don’t know the ins and outs of it, we were just told very vaguely that we were moving to Torquay and that was it. We were moving so they could build the new stadium and as far as we believe, it was the right thing and hopefully that does happen but… who knows?”
