Truro City 0 East Thurrock Utd 6

City's difficult start to the season in National League South reached an abject low as  they crashed to defeat against newly-promoted East Thurrock at a wet Treyew Road.
The defeat leaves City just one point off the relegation places, ahead of Tuesday's night's home game with Hungerford Town, with a single win from their opening eight games.
And after watching his side go down without barely a whimper, City boss Lee Hodges apologised to everyone connected with the club for his team's performance.
He said: "We got what we deserved,  if you don't want to fight and battle and put your bodies on the line., We looked very sorry for ourselves out there.
" I can only only  apologise to the fans who turned up here today and everyone connected with the club who works their socks off.
 "I hope the players  are hurting, but  I don t know if they are?
"But is is hurting me, I have a lot of pride in what I do. Some   players for me at are just  going through the motions.
"I am up for the fight let's see if they are?"

The visitors' hero was Tom Wraight who scored all four goals as his side  eased into a 4-0 interval lead.

His first came after eight minutes when he finished well  after an attempted   City clearance was charged down
And Wraight went onto score three more in the final 11 minutes of the half.
His second was a terrific strike, which was followed by a mazy run and good finish before heading home at the far post.
 After the break City did look a little more threatening   with Rocky Neal heading over and Ryan Brett denied by a great challenge form Ryan Sammons, but the impressive Essex side  finished the game strongly, with substitute Michael Freiter scoring from close range before Reece Harris completed the  rout with a long range effort.
