Manager – Paul Wotton
There could hardly be a more familiar face in the Truro City dugout this evening, as we become just the second team to take on Paul Wotton in his new role as manager of the White Tigers.

Wottsy took over at Treyew Road this summer, starting his reign with a draw against Exeter City and now the man who made an incredible 491 appearances for Argyle will battle against his hometown club in the Cornwall sunshine.

Wottsy was also the Argyle assistant manager up until the end of last season and all of us at Home Park wish him the very best in his new role.

Pre-Match View
“This is my first manager’s job, so it’s exciting for me and a real positive step forward on my career path. It’s a Club with a great tradition in non-league circles and I’m looking forward to getting started.” Paul Wotton

Green Connections
There have been so many players to represent both Argyle and Truro down the years, with a number of Pilgrims moving to Treyew Road on loan or after leaving Home Park, plus a few coming the other way over the Tamar.

In just the past week, former Argyle forward Louis Rooney became the latest player to follow this familiar path, signing a deal to join up with the new Wottsy era at Treyew Road.

Stadium Details
Treyew Road has been home to Truro City for over half a century but it has been a period of upheaval over recent times, with the club looking to build a new Stadium for Cornwall, which led to a ground-share with Torquay United for the first half of last season.

The White Tigers returned to Treyew Road in January and plans are back on for the construction of a new stadium after the club was purchased by rugby union club Cornish Pirates in the spring.
