D-Day for Truro City
4:03pm 12th October 2012
(Updated 4:03pm 12th October 2012)
Truro City gets a stay of execution.
Administrators told Pirate FM they had been granted a one week extension to pay a fifty thousand pound bond, on Friday afternoon.
The Football Conference had been meeting to decide whether the crisis-hit club should be expelled.
The new deadline is Thursday 18th October.
Lifelong fan Robin Netherton said he had been on tenterhooks. He is hoping the time will allow administrators to save the club, and said: "It's like losing a member of your family. It felt last night like a part of me had died. Truro City Football Club means that much to me, and it does to so many people that have been there from fifty, sixty years ago. It just means so much to us all
Mayor Lindsay Southcombe said: "It has been something of a sports hub for people. It's where people go on a Saturday, they can take their kids. I think it's sad to see it go because it's part of our community. Whenever we lose any club or part of the fabric of our community, the whole community loses out."
Saturday's match against Dover has been postponed.
