Truro City is making way for a multi-million pound retail park.

It is confirmed the football club will move - after forty years at Treyew road.

Bosses want to attract the like of John Lewis to the site - and is showing us the plans next week.

But we are not sure where the side's new home will be.

It will be funded by developers Helical Retail.

Peter Masters said: "After becoming involved with Truro City some eighteen months ago by blindly putting up a £50,000 performance bond to the Conference League based on a Club that was only five minutes from certain liquidation, £4.5m in debt, its football ground sold to a third party and a Club
embroiled in a dispute, we have now managed to turn it into a successful, thriving, promotion chasing Southern Premier League Club.

"With the burden of past negative events extinguished, our league status and future success will now be decided by the team performance on the pitch, sponsors, volunteers and importantly, supporters passing through the turnstiles.

"As guardians, we both feel very proud and indeed privileged to have steered Truro City Football Club through what has been its most challenging period in the Club's 125 year history.

"It is truly a momentous moment for the Club, Truro City and indeed the whole of Cornwall."
