Truro City

Altrincham Club Crest image

Since joining The Western League in 2004, Truro City have enjoyed a glorious period of their history which began in 1889.

Originally in the Cornwall County League then The Plymouth & District League,Truro City moved up to The South Western League and won the title on five occasions.

Kevin Healey, a local property developer, who had moved West from the home counties, has been the driving force behind the club’s dramatic rise up the football ‘pyramid’. The Western League Division One title was won in 2006-2007 in the same season as Truro brought The F.A.Vase back from Wembley.

With the city certainly hit by football fever, promotion from The Western League Premier Division came the following campaign and then, to make it three consecutive League titles, Truro City won the championship of the Southern League Division One South & West.

A comparatively quiet season followed, when a mid table position was achieved in the Southern Premier, but the squad was strengthened and Truro City became Southern League Champions in 2011, moving up to The Blue Square South amidst great excitement.

Five promotions, including four Championships had seen the Cornish club compete in six different divisions in seven seasons. Sadly, off field problems brought the clubs progress to an awkward halt and with difficult situations on and off the field, an unhappy chapter was added to a very special football story and Truro City were relegated and faced a very big challenge to sort out its problems.
