Liam Eddy will only leave to play, says Helston boss Taylor (by Lee Hall)

HELSTON  Athletic manager Sid Taylor has not ruled out the possibility of Liam Eddy remaining at Kellaway Parc – if first-team football at Truro City is not guaranteed, writes Lee Hall.

Eddy returned from holiday yesterday and is expected to feature in City's final pre-season friendly at Tiverton on Friday night.

City boss Steve Massey is expected to make a decision on a number of players who have been training with the club, including Eddy, ahead of the new season.

However, Taylor believes the pacey striker will only leave the Blues if he knows he is going to feature on a regular basis for Truro in the Southern League this season.
Eddy left Truro four years ago after failing to hold down a regular starting place at Treyew Road.
But the forward has developed into one of the South West Peninsula League's most potent strikers and City have been impressed with what they have seen during his trial spell back at the club.

Taylor said: "I'm still not 100 per cent sure about what's happening with Liam.  Nothing has changed because he has been on holiday.


"If the right deal comes along then I'm sure Liam will give it a go. I think it will all come down to where he would fit into Truro's plans.

"If there is an opportunity to play first-team football then I'm sure he would take it. But if he's going to be in and out, playing in the second team then I think he'll stay here."

With Eddy expected to play for Truro on Friday, it is unlikely he will feature in Helston's final game of pre-season at home to Wendron United on Saturday.


  1. Looking at the striker competition, Eddy won't have any problem getting a place in the squad. Move over Sid.

  2. Thought he was outstanding in the half he played against Argyle, hope he plays for Truro this season.. ( Reminds me of a tougher Andy Watkins.. Li-am Eddy da da dada ! Yep sounds about right !! )
