St Austell boss anger at Truro City manager Massey

MARTIN Giles has assured St Austell player-manager Dan Nancarrow that he is '100 per-cent' committed to the club, despite playing in a friendly for Truro City on Friday.

The left-back has had a couple of training sessions with City, which Giles insists has been only to keep up his fitness.

However, after only learning on the internet that Giles played in City's pre-season run out against League One Crewe Alexandra, Nancarrow has hit out at Truro boss Steve Massey's handling of the situation.
Steve Massey last week after the Crewe game.

He said: "All it needed was a quick text from Steve Massey to tell me Martin was playing in the friendly, but I had nothing, which is very disappointing.
"I only saw that he was in the squad online, which is a bit of a joke really.

"But I've spoken to Martin he has assured me that he is 100 per cent committed to playing for St Austell next season."

Giles was outstanding for the Lillywhites last season and he made a good impression on Friday against Football League opposition.

Also involved against Crewe were former St Austell duo Olly Brokenshire and Neil Slateford.

Brokenshire signed for City at the end of last month, while former Bodmin team-mate Slateford has also been training with the club.


  1. Haha! maybe Nanks should look at the rap sheet of St Austell's new benefactors before having a go #potkettleblack never say never ;-)

  2. Interesting comment.

  3. Absolutely, Nancarrow is a decent bloke but with those two lurking in the background I'd be more worried about things closer to home.
