Tonbridge Angels 3 Truro City 2
City's two season spell in the Blue Square Bet South came to a disappointing end in Kent with an unfortunate defeat – their 25th of a very difficult season.

Already relegated from Step 2, at just what level the club will be playing next season is still unclear, and just how many of the current squad and management will remain is uncertain.

And after rushing to get ready, the visitors were caught "still on the bus" when Aaron Gayle gave the home side the lead after two minutes, though Paul Hider might have done better with the shot.

After the break, Hayles quickly pulled a goal back and City looked on course to take something from the game until midfielder Joe Broad saw red with 20 minutes to go.
City still had chances to level in a frantic finale but it was not to be, leaving manager Lee Hodges frustrated, not for the first time this season.
He said: "We should have taken something from the game. I thought the officiating was terrible.

"Joe's tackle was not even a booking and we could have had a couple of penalties.
"But I would like to thank all the players for what they have done for me this season."
