Truro City boss has 'total support' of chairman
Truro City chairman Pete Masters has said that manager Steve Massey has his “total support” despite some recent poor results.
City went down 2-0 at home to struggling Fome Town on Tuesday evening, their third successive Calor League premier division defeat, and Massey himself admitted he felt under pressure with his team down in 18th in the table.
But in a statement Masters said: “From a feeling of huge disappointment on Saturday afternoon I went into the depths of despair on Tuesday evening in the knowledge that six of probably the most winnable points available this season were thrown away for a variety of reasons none more so that we did not have a number of senior players available to play.
“The reasons for this were the subject of a long discussion with Steve which continued into the early hours of Wednesday morning.

“I concluded that perhaps Steve is guilty of putting too much reliance on one or two of these players to the detriment of the rest of the squad.
“There is no denying that those who did play gave it their all and I have no complaints in that area and neither should anyone else.
“The whole of the management team are under no illusion that we all demand results and now.
“For the football pundits who know better I can assure you that Steve is one step ahead of us all and continues to have both Philip and my total support. Neither of us are quitters.”
City have a chance to get their season back on track when they visit Brislington in the FA Cup on Saturday, bidding for a place in the third qualifying round.
