Truro City Football Club have announced that manager Paul Wotton has signed a new long-term contract with the club.

Wotton joined the club in 2019 and looked on course to get the team promoted to the National League South last season before the campaign was abandoned amidst the Coronavirus pandemic.

The 43 year old said: “I’m excited. It shows the clubs intent and how forward thinking they are. I’ve committed to them and they’ve committed to me. It’s all good, it’s exciting.

“I’ve been here two seasons now, which have been really frustrating seasons and hopefully we’ll never see ones like it again, but I feel like there is some unfinished business.

“We want to achieve stuff as a football club. The club’s in a great place now with the owners and the new stadium being built. It’s my job to try and get a decent team on the pitch.

“Once I knew the direction the club was going on and off the pitch and knew I had the continued support; it was a no brainer for me.

“The possibilities for Truro City are endless. There are good people at the club and the new ground being built is crazy exciting, and it is happening.

“We’ve got aspirations, I know where I want to be with the club. It’s one season at a time. First and foremost, lets juts get back playing and one thing that I promised on the first day I arrived, is whatever Truro City team I put out will keep going right until the final whistle. We’ve done that so far and will continue to do so.”

The White Tigers sat fourth after eight games in the Southern League Premier South before their 2020/21 campaign was brought to an abrupt halt after the FA announced the season was to be declared null and void.

Club consultant Alex Black added: “We as a football club are delighted to agree terms to keep Paul as manager for the foreseeable future.

"He has had a positive impact both on and off the field and we believe he is the right man to lead us into our brand-new stadium.

“We have big plans here at Truro and Paul is integral to what we want to achieve.”
