Hodgy Calls For Help

ARGYLE legend Lee Hodges is hoping to draw on the Green Army’s legendary support.

Hodgy, 39, is now player-manager of Blue Square Bet South side Truro City, who are currently in administration and struggling to pay their players.

On Saturday, they host AFC Totton at Treyew Road in the second qualifying round of the FA Cup, and Lee is asking Argyle fans who are not making the long trek to Morecambe to watch the Greens to take a trip to Cornwall instead.

"I know the lads would really appreciate the support," he said.

"Argyle fans know only too well what we are going through, and the two clubs have always been very close.

"All the gate money will go straight to the players, which would be a real boost for them. Some are finding it quite hard going, as you can imagine.

"Even an extra 50-100 people on the gate would make a big difference to everyone."

There is also the small matter of £4,500 from FA funds awaiting the winners of the game.

Truro City famously beat AFC Totton 3-1 in the 2007 FA Vase final at Wembley.

Then, two goals from ex-Pilgrim Kevin Wills and a strike from fellow former Green Joe Broad gave the Cornishmen a 3-1 victory in front of a crowd on more than 35,000.

AFC Totton now play in the Southern League Premier Division, a league below Truro.
