Truro City players to turn out in Peninsula

No fewer than six Truro City first-team players could be making their debuts for clubs in the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League Premier Division.

Truro boss Lee Hodges has allowed his players to play for clubs from lower leagues this weekend as the Conference South outfit have no game.

Last night's Peninsula fixture between Newquay and Plymouth Parkway was likely to see Truro players Jake Ash and Andy Watkins included in the Peppermints squad and possibly Marcus Martin in the Parkway squad.

Elburton Villa staged their first game under floodlights last night and striker Stewart Yetton was making his debut for the Haye Road outfit as they faced Launceston.

Today's fixture at the Erme Valley Stadium will see Falmouth include Cody Cooke and Dan Green in their squad to face hosts Ivybridge.

Should Truro successfully negotiate next Thursday's Conference deadline then these players would return to Treyew Road but should the White Tigers fail then they will be available to play for their Peninsula clubs.

However, it is believed that several of the Truro squad are being tracked by other Conference sides.

It is also thought the Truro second string, who are away to Wadebridge Town in Division One West, could also include a few fringe first-team players.

Bottom club Penzance face a reinforced Tavistock side when they travel to Langsford Park today as the Lambs hope to include Newquay full-back Shane Jewell and Callington utility player Jarrad Woods.

Lambs boss Ian Southcott also pulled off a coup with the signing of former Mansfield Town striker Ian Holmes after the 27-year-old, twice winner of the Golden Boot in Conference North, moved to the area.

Liskeard manager Martin Burgess will be looking for his side to build on Tuesday's draw at Falmouth when they face the unenviable task of taking on reigning champions Bodmin Town at Priory Park.

Saltash United have an early chance to bounce back from Tuesday's home defeat by Camelford when they entertain Bovey Tracey.

The Ashes have doubts over Gavin Coulton (hamstring), Lewis Russell (ribs), Richard Maddison (hip), Steve Sargison (ankle) and Stuart Clark (calf).

Camelford entertain leaders St Blazey with confidence high after Tuesday's 4-2 win at Saltash while Liverton are hoping to have signed Vospers goalkeeper Ben Hardie in time for the visit of Cullompton.

Witheridge entertain St Austell just two weeks after the sides drew 0-0 at Poltair Park.
