Truro City have appointed Foxhole’s Jon Peters and Robin Watt as the new managers of the club’s reserve team, following the controversial departure of Anthony Reynolds earlier this month.

They will be assisted by Steve Flack, also from Foxhole, as coach.

Reynolds quit as boss after less than a season in charge following the team’s 5-1 Carlsberg SWPL Division One defeat at Porthleven and cited chairman Peter Masters’ comments on Twitter in the wake of the result as the “final straw”.

The club said they had been inundated with enquires and applications from across the county.

But a statement added: “However, first team manager and the person responsible for selecting a new boss for the South West Peninsula league side, Steve Massey, had always had one eye on the candidates he wanted from the outset.

“Having approached their former club for permission to speak with them, talks went extremely well this week and the club can now officially announce that supported by coach Steve Flack they will make up the new management structure.

“The new team will need no introduction to many Truro City fans having been involved with and responsible for many of the talented youngsters that have played for the club during their last spell in charge a few seasons ago.

“It is hoped and expected that they can build on the success this season and their remit given to them by Massey is ‘let’s push for promotion’

“Although it will be a tough ask, Peters and Watt are confident that with a few quality additions, a little bit of luck and lots of hard work till the end of the season, a promotion place might not be that far away.”

Massey added: “They are the ones that we had always wanted and fortunately we have now achieved that aim” adding.

“I would like to thank Foxhole for their co-operation in this matter and of course welcome JP, Robin and Steve to the club which I am sure will herald in a new and exciting era with our South West Peninsula team.”

The new management team will take charge of the team, who are currently seventh in the table, for the first time at home to Bude on Saturday February 1.
