Lee Hodges calls on players to stay at Truro City FC
Truro City boss Lee Hodges has called on the first team players to stay at the club despite troubled times at Treyew Road.
Last Tuesday the club was put into administration, following 12 months of financial turmoil.
The players have still not been paid their wages for August and were on the end of an 8-0 hammering away at Maidenhead United on Saturday.
And with a number of clubs interested in signing members of the Truro City squad, things could get drastically worse this week.
However Lee Hodges, along with his coaching staff Dave Newton, Ian Leigh and Deba Sidhu, have agreed to stay with the club for at least another month. They are calling for the players to do the same.
“We had a meeting with the administrator on Thursday and the situation basically boils down to everyone having to decide within the next few days whether or not they are to stay on or leave the club. I have said to them all that I hope they will choose to stay but that I will obviously understand if they choose to leave. The situation on the playing side should be a lot clearer by the end of the week.
“I am hopeful that we will be able to field a team for this Saturday (at home to Bromley in league), and it will be really important to get as many supporters as we can into the ground for that game. The administrator has explained that with a good gate it should be possible to pay the boys some of that.”
Goalkeeper Tim Sandercombe has been approached by Conference North side Oxford City and his expected to make a decision on his future in the next few days.
As is Ben Adlesbury, who has received an approach from Eastbourne Borough.
It has also been reported that City favourite Les Afful has left Treyew Road, although there has been no official confirmation from the club on his
