Truro 5 Argyle XI 1 - Report

FORMER Pilgrims Barry Hayles and Isaac Vassell were on the scoresheet as Truro City beat a Pilgrims' development side 5-1 at Treyew Road on Thursday.

Hayles, who played for us between 2006-07 and is now 42, put the White Tigers ahead, and the Southern League Premier Division side soon doubled their lead.

A Tyler Harvey goal before half-time reduced the deficit but City added three more second-half strikes, including one from Vassell who was released by manager John Sheridan at the end of last season.

Argyle (4-4-2): James Bittner (Andrew Hannah half-time); Mason Hughes, Aaron Bentley, Paul Wotton (Tom Moxham 63), Ben Purrington; Nathan Thomas, River Allen (Jake Miller 66), Tyler Harvey (Ben Steer 66), Jamil Roberts; Marvin Morgan, Louis Rooney (Jason Vincent 63). Substitutes (not used): Will Sargent, Owen Jones, Liam Knowles.
