Football in Cornwall
Cornwall's premier football side is Truro City Football Club. From being founding members of the South Western League in 1951, Truro FC has recently, thanks in no small way to their chairman Kevin Heaney, experienced three promotions in the last four years. They play in the Zamaretto Premier Division; the first time a Cornish club has played at such a level.
With the season now over we are proud to announce that Truro City have won the Zamaretto Premier Division with 87 points from their 40 games. Truro were victorious in their final game of the season, running out 3-2 winners against Weymouth in their final game in front of 1,700 delirious fans and were presented with the Championship Shield following the game. Hednesford Town finished in second place on 83 points and Salisbury City finished third with 79 points from their 40 games. Hednesford will now meet Salisbury in the Play Off final to be played at Hednesford Town on 2nd May 2011.
The Cornishmen are promoted to the Blue Square Conference South for the 2011-2012 season - their fifth promotion in six years!
Well Done everyone at Truro City FC!! [Updated 30.04.2011]
