FA Vase winner Stevenson makes Truro City return
Truro City include two new “signings” for tonight’s Calor League Premier Division trip to the New Forest to play Bashley (7.45pm).
In goal will be Dan Stevenson, who was City’s keeper when they won the FA Vase at Wembley in 2007.
He has been signed as cover from Carlsberg SWPL premier side Launceston, who are now managed by former City boss Leigh Cooper.
Stevenson will replace the unavailable No1 Ollie Chenoweth, whose new job means he is unavailable for tonight’s game.

The only other change from the 16 that drew 2-2 at home to Bedford Town, with a last minute Jordan Copp penalty, on Saturday is new signing, defender Raiff Gwinnett, who replaces unused substitute Ed Weeks.
City boss Steve Massey is looking forward to the trip to Hampshire to take on a Bashley side who drew 0-0 at Biggleswade Town on Saturday.
He said: “The last minute penalty to secure a well-earned draw on Saturday to Bedford, was the least we deserved and its left all the players and staff in a buoyant, confident and upbeat manner for the game tonight.”
And he added that he was delighted to have signed Stevenson and grateful to Leigh Cooper for his co-operation.
“I am absolutely thrilled to have someone of Dan’s talents and ability to cover for Ollie tonight.”
The team were leaving Truro midday and stop en route for a pre-match meal before travelling back into the county in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Sadly they will not be able to use the new team bus, which has a transmission problem but will still be travelling in an executive coach.
