Tim's missing shirt.

A HARD-UP soccer club had to beg a fan to return a shirt given by the goalie after a game — because they could not afford a new one.

Keeper Tim Sandercombe, who had just played his last game for Truro City, handed his top to one of the 30 supporters who had travelled from Cornwall to the match in Maidenhead, Berks.

But two days after the 8-0 thrashing, manager Lee Hodges pleaded to get it back in time for today’s Blue Square Bet South game against Bromley.

The next day, fan Brian Thompson presented the yellow jersey to Lee.

Around 15 other fans had offered to buy replacements.

Truro have been docked ten points after going into administration with reported debts of £700,000.
