TRURO CITY OFFER GROUNDSHARE TO CORNISH PIRATES

Truro City chairman Peter Masters has offered Cornish Pirates the chance to share his planned new ground.

The Championship rugby union side hope to build a stadium of their own, along with Truro and Penwith College.

But football club City say the Pirates are welcome to share their new ground, rather than construct another near to the Silver Bow site. 

Masters told BBC Radio Cornwall: “If people want to come and join our party, which is already funded, i.e the college or the Pirates, there’s an open invitation.”

Plans for the Stadium of Cornwall at Langarth on the edge of the city were approved almost two years ago, but will only go ahead if a supermarket is built as part the £10 million development. 

A decision on the associated supermarket for the new stadium will be made on 12th March. 

Truro City sold their Treyew Road ground to Helical Retail for £2.28m in July 2012. Pirates meanwhile currently play at Mennaye Field
