IT may only be the sixth game of the season, but Saturday's win at Farnborough felt like a big moment for Truro City.

After three wins on the bounce at the start of the season, the shine of that sparkling start was dimmed somewhat as the White Tigers were hit with successive defeats in three days over the Bank Holiday weekend.

But goals from James Ward and Louis Rooney secured a 2-0 win for the Cornish side to ensure they returned from Hampshire with all three points and moved up to second in the Southern League Premier South table.

Sitting just one point behind leaders Poole Town, who won 1-0 at Swindon Supermarine at the weekend to preserve top spot, Truro will no doubt be delighted to be in this position after six games, and would surely have taken four wins from six had you offered them it at the start of the campaign.

The next Tigers Talk piece is likely to be in four weeks' time, by which time Truro will have played three more Southern League Premier games.

The White Tigers welcome the mid-table duo of Gosport Borough and Hayes & Yeading United to Treyew Road on September 14 and 28 respectively, with a Tuesday night trip to Wimborne Town in between. Six or seven points from those games would be a healthy return indeed.

But September also sees the start of both their Emirates FA Cup and Southern League Cup campaigns. The FA Cup is first up this weekend as Wimborne come down to Cornwall for their first qualifying round match.

Interestingly, should the match end in a draw then the replay would be played at Wimborne's The Cuthbury ground on the following Tuesday, just seven days before Truro head there in the league.

If it doesn't go to a replay then the following Tuesday will see Truro host Tiverton Town in the preliminary round of the Southern League Cup.

You could forgive those at Truro City for having the sole intention of performing well in the league and giving themselves the best chance of promotion back to the National League South.

But the cups should not be ignored as these can often provide crucial revenue and are often some of the best days/nights of the season, certainly from the supporters' perspective.

String three or four wins together and suddenly Truro are staring at the first round of the FA Cup again, and who wouldn't love a day out at the likes of Charlton again?
