The Cornish Pirates will share a pitch with Plymouth Argyle if they get promoted.

Their ground does not meet standards.

Now a new deal means they will use Home Park as a temporary base, until a Stadium for Cornwall is built.

The Council backed it but the Secretary of State will have the final say.

Marazion fan Kerenza Bailey thinks support will drop: "They may lose quite a lot of fan base from this part, purely because of the financial reasons getting up to Plymouth and back. We wouldn't be able to go and see them every time they're playing, like we are down in Penzance, we do down there every single match. We couldn't afford it. It's just the financial side of it".
