THE girlfriend of Truro City Football Club's bankrupt former chairman claims it owes her more than £1 million – but refused to say why.

The West Briton spoke with Kevin Heaney's partner Julia Sincock at a meeting for creditors of the club at Treyew Road on Friday.

Other creditors expressed anger at having to chase the club for alleged debts.

But six years ago Ms Sincock was an accounts technician at Walker Moyle at Redruth earning just £15,000 a year.

After the meeting, attended by the West Briton, 30-year-old Ms Sincock, also known as Yulia, refused to comment on why she had put in a claim for £1,006,180 and then left in a large sports utility vehicle.


The West Briton can also reveal that on September 20 Ms Sincock was appointed as director of a company Dilby, which has also put in a claim for £100,000. Mr Heaney was a director of that company until August 3.

A company called Cornish Properties Ltd has also put in a claim for £355,083. Mr Heaney's position as director at that firm ended on August 3 and Ms Sincock was made director on September 18. The company was wound up at Truro County Court on October 3.

Mr Heaney, the property developer who brought unprecedented success to Truro City, was made bankrupt on August 24 and stood down as chairman of the club.

The total claims against Truro City from 77 creditors add up to nearly £4 million, including a claim for £1.5 million from "wealth management" company BCK. It declined to comment.

The West Briton gained exclusive access to the meeting as it has put in a claim for more than £6,000 allegedly owed by the football club for advertisements.

Mark Woolcock, brought in and dismissed as chief executive at the club this summer, claimed: "I was brought in to provide financial and organisational stability for the club and I was not allowed to do that.

"The club would not have got where they have got without Kevin Heaney but it's a shame it has had to end this way."

The meeting heard administrators were still in talks regarding the sale of the club and the new owners would negotiate agreements with creditors.

    Smells of a dirty RAT!! I hope they have the serious fraud sqaud after them. It woud be a great shame to lose the football club over false claims. Did Heaney even spend any where near that much in his time there? Let alone asking for some back via the back door!!!!

    If this wan't so serious for the supporters of Truro it would be laughable. It's quite clear that someone earning £15000 a year would not be capable of putting £1m of finance into the Club, surely she had to provide evidence to the Administrators she actually did this. If not, that amounts to fraud, and the Police and SFO should be called in to investigate.

    Let us hope the fraud squad have been notified of this pair and the new owner/s needs to have some forensic accounting done to check everything. Unfortunately it looks like Truro might be about to lose their football club because of this though.

    From an accounts clerk....whoops that should be technician!!! earning £15k per year to becoming a director of Cornish Properties on the 18th Sept. and then also becoming a director of Dilby on the 20th Sept. Mmm I heard of protecting one's assets in the face of bankruptcy but for this women to believe she is owed anything beggars belief.

    Sounds fishy and more than a little creative accounting/fraudulent without proof of what it is for and bank balances to show payments. Personally if the guy sorting the club out got it into debt and then tries to claim for himself/girlfriend and any businesses he was involved in then he shouldn't be paid back anyway.
