An open meeting is being held at Treyew Road tonight to give Truro City's players and supporters a chance to meet the prospective new owners. The football club was saved from collapse at the eleventh hour on Friday afternoon when three local businessmen stumped up the £50,000 bond needed to keep it going.
Pete and Jason Masters from L2 nightclub and Philip Perryman, owner of A2B Taxis, stepped in to offer the cash, throwing the Club a much needed lifeline.
The Football Conference has today issued a further statement saying: "Truro City FC has rightly caused genuine concern to the Board, but we are delighted that the major efforts undertaken by all parties to keep the club alive, appear to offer long-term hope. So despite reports to the contrary in some media outlets that the club had been expelled, that was never published by the Football Conference, albeit it is clear to all, the club was very close to such action being taken. "
They go on to say: "It is hoped that the "last minute" investors will be successful in their efforts with the club, its staff, management and players and that they will be able to sustain and promote a club worthy of membership and be a credit to their community and football in Cornwall."
Tonight's meeting starts at 7.30pm.
