TISA Statement - Treyew Road

It is with a sense of great relief that TISA welcomes today's news that Truro City will continue to play its football at Treyew Road next season.  From the moment it was announced that a deal had been done to ground share with Torquay United and in particular because of the delays over planning consent for Treyew Road and Silver Bow, TISA called for JIL, Helical and Truro City owner Peter Masters to get together and thrash out an extension to the lease at Treyew Road.

TISA were told this was not a "practical" solution.  Indeed many accused us of deliberately rocking the boat and seeking to destabilise the club.  So it is with great pride that today I can thank TISA members and the many people that backed our "Keep Truro in Cornwall" campaign including local MPs and Councillors.

If ever there was a day to recognise that there is place in football for independent fans groups who are free to campaign and speak freely, then this is that day.  We congratulate all concerned in coming to this common sense decision.
