Truro City boss Lee Hodges says his side will be able to cope without striker Kieffer Moore.

The 18-year-old, who has scored 13 goals this season, moved to Dorchester Town earlier this week.

"I'm disappointed to lose him, but players move on and he's decided to move," Hodges told BBC Cornwall.

"But we've got a great bunch of lads here, I've got Barry Hayles up front, I've got Matty Wright who's jumping at the bit to get on the pitch."

Moore joined from local football in Devon and formed an impressive partnership with Andy Watkins in the City attack.

"He's a really big loss," conceded Hodges.

"He's come in from very local football, we've given him an opportunity and it took a bit of time for him to get going, but he's managed to do very well as the season's gone on.

"It came out of the blue that he decided to leave.

"But it's not as if we haven't got any centre-forwards here. We'll be fine for the time being, and if Steve Massey [head of football development] can bring someone else in then great."
