    What a great article Jenni, you would not believe what emotions I have been through today. Your edit at the end of your story tells you just how crazy the world of a football supporter can be!!!! On a cold, wet October afternoon – suddenly a bright light appeared out of the darkness!!! Could a miracle have really happened? I’ll check back with you in the morning before I can start smiling once again.

    Latest news is that the bond has indeed been paid, and City are able to play their next game on Tuesday night. What is less clear is who is actually going to own the club. The bond has been paid by 2 local businessmen, but they haven’t stated that they intend to complete a purchase, so is it a case of them buying the precious commodity of time for a deal to happen? More questions than answers at the moment.

    All the best to the fans who are hoping and trying to save their club.

    I watched Truro’s rise with interest and concern. It seemed like a fairly tale story with the potential to turn into a nightmare. Unfortunately, the nightmare arrived.

    I truely hope the club can be saved and taken over by the Supporters Trust. It’s better to have a club a bit further down the pyramid than not have one at all.

    Pwb lwc!
