The Truro Independent Supporters Association have described Truro City’s groundshare with Torquay United as ‘tragedy for Cornish sport,’ reports Cornwall Live.

In a strongly worded statement that was released on their website the association criticise the current owners of the club and questioned their commitment to the Stadium for Cornwall project.

The National League South side are to leave Treyew Road and will instead play every home match at league rivals Torquay United’s Plainmoor ground.

That would involve a 160 mile round trip for any of the Truro fans that live in the city.

The full statement, which was released on Monday night, says: “Today marks a tragedy for Cornish sport and Truro City fans in particular as they face their club being moved to Torquay for an indeterminate amount of time, perhaps forever.

“It’s a disgrace that in the near six years under the current ownership that the owners have failed to obtain a location either permanent or temporary even within the boundary of Cornwall let alone Truro itself.

“We now find ourselves voluntarily vacating Treyew Road without even the completed business case required to enable the Government to consider providing the funds required to start work on the Stadium for Cornwall, a project which the current owners spent much of their tenure ridiculing rather than supporting.”
