Truro City has revealed a new and updated crest ahead of club’s return to Cornwall in a new playing facility for the 2024-25 season – along with a new nickname, writes Gareth Davies.

Subtle changes have been made to the branding which the club have used for the past six years.

Truro Cathedral is now rendered in black on a white background with the St Piran’s flag sitting below the city’s most prominent landmark.

The main aesthetic features of the crest are no longer housed within a shield and they are given greater prominence than seen previously.

The white tiger will no longer feature on any club crest or associated branding and this will also see Truro City drop the White Tigers moniker, given its lack of historical connections with the club and the Duchy as a whole.

Truro will readopt its original nickname of the Tinners whilst also using City, to reflect the club’s status as Cornwall’s only city club.

The change of nickname will be reflected across all the club’s written material with immediate effect.

This new crest is the first of many exciting announcements ahead of Football Coming Home, with season tickets for next season going on sale this Friday, June 7.

This is not the only change going in to the new season. Last month the club confirmed that first team manager Paul Wotton had left City to take on a similar role at Torquay United.

Paul had been in charge of City for close to five years after his appointment in July 2019, with the club relegated back to the Southern League Premier division.

The former Plymouth Argyle, Southampton and Yeovil Town defender led the club’s first team through two Covid-19 affected seasons, before finally completing his first full term in charge for the 2021-22 campaign.

The following year, 2022-23, Paul led City back to National League South level and in the side’s most recent season, secured survival at Step Two, despite a challenging end of term schedule.

"Everyone connected with Truro City thanks Paul for his time spent in charge of the football club and we wish him well in his future endeavours," the club said in a statement.

"The process of replacing Paul is now well underway.

“This is an exciting chapter in the club’s history as it returns to Cornwall, in a new stadium within the Langarth village development."
