The Magpies take a break from Southern League action this weekend with a long trip to Cornwall to tackle the White Tigers, Truro City, in the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday afternoon at Treyew Road with a 15:00 kick off.
The team coach is fully booked and departs at 08:00 from the J & B’s Stadium, Cuthbury. Should there be a draw after 90 minutes there would be a replay at Cuthbury on Tuesday next week.
The Magpies will be looking to carry on from where they left off last Saturday after defeating Walton Casuals 4-1, with Luke Burbidge, Sam Bayston and Tony Lee on the scoresheet management and fans will be looking for more of the same with good prize money on offer for the winners.
Following this weekend the Magpies have a break from matches at the Cuthbury with away ties due on Tuesday 10th September at Poole Town in the League Cup and a visit to Beaconsfield Town on Saturday 14th, travel details for this will be released this weekend. Once all of these matches are over we welcome our FA Cup opponents Truro City in Southern League action on Tuesday 17th September so the matches are coming thick and fast for the Magpies.
The 2006/7 season was the most successful in Truro City’s history. At the first attempt they won the Toolstation Western League First Division by a record margin; retained the Cornwall Senior Cup and capped the season by winning the FA Vase at the New Wembley Stadium with a 3-1 win over AFC Totton, the first time the Trophy had been won by a Club playing at Step 6 in the Football Pyramid and in front of a record crowd of over 37,000.
Success continued for the White Tigers in 2007/8 season winning the Toolstation Western League Premier Division by a massive 17 points and thereby becoming the first ever Cornish Club to gain entry into Southern League football.
2008/9 was another successful season with City winning promotion to the Southern League Premier Division as Champions. This meant that City equalled the British record with four successive promotions.
Season 2010-11 proved to be another momentous one. Vying for the League lead for most of the season with favourites Salisbury City, Truro were finally crowned Champions by four points after a fabulous 6-0 win away at Salisbury and finishing the season with seven straight victories ensuring Blue Square Bet Conference South football for the first time. This set a new British record in that no senior club had ever previously won 5 promotions in 6 seasons.
The eve of the 2018/19 season saw Truro move from Treyew Road to ground-share with Torquay United, then this year as recently as June, the Club was sold to the Cornish Pirates, a professional rugby team, who have played in the English Championship, the league below the Premiership, since 2002 via a business transfer under an asset deal. This wiped the historical slate clean, heralding the start of an exciting new era for the Cornish club.
