Football Conference Statement on Truro

....October with regards to Truro City FC. The competition rules and regulations, together with the articles of the limited company, have been framed over preceding years in such a way, to safeguard the integrity of the competition and to protect the best interest of all its member clubs. The Board, constituted by those member clubs, has in recent years been faced with difficult decisions, especially with regards to financial difficulties many clubs seem to endure. Using their own individual and collective experiences the Board has to make judgements in the best interest of all concerned and in so doing, recognises the importance of fans of such clubs, especially those where the future existence of their club is placed in jeopardy. 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. Throughout protracted legal issues, which remain private and confidential for good reason, the Football Conference, with first class assistance from their Legal Advisor, only sought one solution. That was the continuation of the club as a member of the competition, albeit the future of the club remained in doubt right up to the final timeline which the administrator, their legal team and the club was given to work to. The Board is satisfied that the conditions imposed, including the deposit of a financial bond, were met within the timeline, albeit at the cost of postponing a further scheduled fixture at Eastleigh FC. 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. In conclusion, the Football Conference wishes it to be known and understood by all, that the Board are mandated, in compliance with its regulations, to consider and deal appropriately with any breaches which may have arisen during recent events at Truro City FC. The Board will therefore consider such at its next scheduled meeting.
