Truro City's FA Trophy journey is over after the club had to cancel tomorrow's third round tie after a confirmed Covid-19 case.

City were due to visit National League South side Oxford City tomorrow night, but a confirmed case of Covid-19 among the Truro squad means the tie has been postponed.

FA rules dictate that Truro do not get a second chance to play the tie as ties must be completed within eight days of the originally scheduled fixture, so Oxford City will advance to the fourth round.

The match had initially been put back a day from tonight to tomorrow night as the White Tigers awaited the result of the Covid test.

It means City's cup hopes are over for another year despite their 2-1 second round win at Essex club Concord Rangers on Saturday.

Second-half goals from Tyler Harvey and Alex Battle sealed City’s progression to the third round proper of the competition for the first time despite Sam Blackman’s late goal from the hosts.

City will not play their next league game until the new year after the Southern League agreed to continue the suspension of the 2020/21 campaign.

The league, which has yet to resume following the end of the second national lockdown in November, will remain on pause until further notice.

No formal start date has been given, although it will not be before January 9, 2021.

The league’s statement read: “Since the initial survey on December 2 the infection rate has deteriorated in the geographical footprint of our member clubs, which has resulted in a larger number of Southern League clubs being placed in Tier 3."

“In reaching this decision the board considered several factors such as the lack of income from secondary spend revenue, the reduced attendances at Tier 3 clubs and more importantly, the duty of care the league has to players, club officials, volunteers and supporters during this current pandemic.”

City’s last league game was a 4-1 win at home to Wimborne Town on Tuesday, October 27.
