Comments (0)

Truro City manager Sean McCarthy has left the club by "mutual consent" following Saturday's 7-2 defeat at Stourbridge.

The club announced McCarthy's departure in a statement this morning.

The former Plymouth Argyle striker took charge at Treyew Road in the summer of 2008 and guided City to the Southern League's Division One South and West title.

But this season after a bright start City's form has slumped in the league leaving them well away from the play-off places.

And obviously Saturday's humiliating defeat was the tipping point for chairman Kevin Heaney.

Chris Webb will assume the role of caretaker-managerfor tomorrow's home game with Evesham.

The full statement read: "Following discussions with Mr Sean McCarthy it has been agreed by mutual consent that as of today's date December 7 2009, Sean will no longer continue in his role as first team manager.

"The club would like to thank Sean for all his efforts on behalf of Truro City football club and wishes him every success for the future.

"Until such time as a new manager is appointed Chris Webb will assume the role of caretaker-manager, commencing with our game against Evesham United, scheduled for Tuesday December 8 (7.45pm).

    Hi Treve, No...it's the home shirt with th new sponsors- Truro College and Livery Dole on the back. Gary, thanks for the comment, but this about better facilities for the fans who love the club, nothing else.

    now that would be ironic - Heaney spends best part of ten years sh......g on everybody and the club's shirts with his liquidated company's name on them go to pay for new toilets at the football club he's sold down the river.

    I remember the marketing around the development at Boscawen Woods only last year, which was certainly a triumph for the 'dream sellers', especially now that it's in the hands of the Receivers. There's marketing hype, and then there are 'fields of broken dreams', for which someone has to take responsibility. However careful you are, the one thing that can't be second-guessed is something which isn't what it seems.

    Webby must have got a short memory or a long contract.

    The beginning of the end for Truro City methinks. Once Heaney pulls out (inevitable giving the number of people hounding him for money) then you can get back to local league football. I feel sorry for all the kids pinched and poached from other Cornish teams and sold a dream that will never be realised.

    The good news is that City have played fewer league games than everybody else and they're still in the Trophy. There is a long way still to go this season and another promotion is still possible. They are still a talented bunch of players and I would like to wish Chris Webb the very best of luck for getting City's season back on track.

    Hope Mr H is back on form for tonight's game, and well enough to get to Eire by Friday.

    Will the West Briton be talking to Sean Mc Carthy, or does his Contract prevent him doing so ?
