TRURO CITY FC ANNOUNCEMENT
Friday Oct 12, 2012
The Administrator of Truro City Football Club confirmed last evening it had not been possible to meet the Football Conference's requirements by the stated deadline of 5.00pm on Thursday 11 October, enabling the Club's match against Dover Athletic FC to proceed on Saturday and for the Club's continued participation in the Competition to be confirmed. To avoid the visiting Club from incurring any unnecessary expense, and consuming much time, Saturday's fixture was postponed at 6.30pm on Thursday, well before Dover Athletic FC was due to commence its journey earlier today.
In respect of Truro City FC's membership of the Competition, the Board has received encouraging information from the Administrator about a potential buyer of the Club. This opportunity did not come to light until Wednesday evening so it was not possible for the Administrator to complete a purchase before close of business on Thursday. At an emergency Board meeting held on Friday afternoon the Directors expressed their hope for this latest development and granted the Club, through the Administrator, seven further days, until 5.00pm on Thursday 18 October, to meet its requirements and complete a sale. If the Club fails to meet this deadline, the Board will be obliged to consider the Club's further participation in the Competition.
