NON LEAGUE Tully appointed Truro City player-manager

Truro City FC large logoPopular ex Exeter City and Torquay United full back Steve Tully has become the new player-manager at Truro City in the wake of Steve Massey’s departure.

Tully, 34, has been appointed by Truro City chairman Peter Masters to oversee the Cornish Tigers’ 10-match Southern Premier run-in.

It is Tully’s first managerial role and he intends to make it a permanent fixture having been a first team regular defender for City this term.

He said: “Truro City is a fantastic club and a great place to start in management. It’s a great opportunity to prove myself as a manager and although initially 10 games I want to make it longer.”

Tully will be ruled out of his first game in charge, at promotion-chasing Poole Town on Saturday, by an on-going ankle injury.

The new City boss is boosted by the recent return of highly respected club skipper Jake Ash from long term injury.

Tully said: "I will be speaking to Ashy tonight. To be honest the phone hasn't stopped ringing, which goes to prove how much people care about Truro City. 

"Hopefully I will bring in some fresh ideas and give us fresh impetus and maybe a fresh face, or two.

"As a priority I certainly want us to build stronger links between the players and supporters. We should all be in this together."

• Torquay United youth team scholars Mickey Parcell and Monty Berrow have joined Truro City on work experience ahead of tomorrow's match at Poole.

• Plymouth Argyle defender Jamie Richards, 19, and Cornwall-born forward Isaac Vassell, 20, have joined Weymouth on loan until the end of season.
