Salisbury chairman bails out Truro
It has been revealed that it was the chairman of rival Blue Square South club Salisbury City who came to the aid of Truro City and enabled them to pay outstanding player wages.
In a statement Salisbury chairman William Harrison-Allen made it clear that his company CGA Holdings was not investing in Truro City which would probably be in breach of football rules. Rather it was a property deal that will help Truro chairman Kevin Heaney keep the beleaguered club going.
How far this will deal with the White Tigers long-term problems is unclear, particularly given that Heaney has been reported to be suffering from poor health. No takeover deal has been struck and the £700,000 winding up petition brought by unsecured creditors remains to be resolved.
