    Truro have a lot of work to do to get a B grade by 31st March. No need for segregation but based on my visit in September the perimeter fence needs to be raised and a fence to shield the players entry onto the pitch needs to be built

    I cannot see how Truro will support a decent – ie. Conference Premier or Football League – football club in the medium to long-term.

    It is one of many small towns – ok, technically it’s a city – in a sparsely populated county where parochial rivalries are intense. Heaney, I suspect, believes that if Truro City reach the league, football fans from Penzance, Falmouth, and St Austell will trek to his Stadium for Cornwall. Dream on.

    As for the rugby sharing idea – the same parochial rivalry issue exists, because of the Cornish Pirates’ origins in Penzance. And in any case, Truro has never been part of Cornwall’s rugby heartland – that lies much further west. When the Pirates based themselves in a temporary stadium in Truro for a couple of seasons last decade, crowds were very poor.

    The whole thing is pie – or pasty – in the sky.
