Truro Could Reopen Groundshare Talks With Torquay

Truro City might reopen groundshare talks with Torquay United if they win promotion from the National League South.

City are set to leave their Treyew Road home at the end of the season so that redevelopment work can take place.

In December 2015, the two clubs agreed to share Torquay’s Plainmoor stadium when plans for Truro’s new ground were delayed but they were able to agree with developers to remain at Treyew Road.

A shared Stadium for Cornwall with rugby team Cornish Pirates was proposed although Truro were given another extension to stay at Treyew with developers wanting to build a retail park on the site.

That agreement finishes at the end of the season and should City not be promoted, they will share with a local club.

Chairman Peter Masters told BBC Sport: “Our friends at Torquay United will possibly host us again I would have to ask them,” chairman Peter Masters said.

“I’m a good friend of (Torquay chairman) Clark Osborn, and I’m sure if Truro went knocking they would assist, there’s not problem with that.

“If we get promoted then the decision will have to be taken as to ‘do we want to take that promotion?'” Masters added to BBC Sport.

“If we do take it we’ll be playing outside of the county for a period of one season, if we don’t take it we’ll be playing within Cornwall for that season.

“It’s a big decision, but that decision can be made once we know what level of football we’re going to be playing at.”
