Torquay United’s potential groundshare
Talks have re-opened with the potential for National League side Torquay United to groundshare with Truro City if the side are promoted from National League South. Sixth-placed Truro City, are currently in the play-off places in the National League South, and would need a temporary home whilst their stadium – Treyew Road - is redeveloped.
With no suitable space in Cornwall for a ground, the two sides agreed to share Torquay’s Plainmoor in 2015, but Truro managed to get an extended stay at Treyew Road as their new stadium plans were delayed, with work still not started on the new stadium.
Richard Money resigns from Solihull Moors
After signing Richard Money as manager, things seemed to be looking up for the National League’s bottom side Solihull Moors. But the 62-year-old has resigned just 26 days after taking charge. Taking over on 5 October following Liam McDonald’s departure the ex-Liverpool defender has cited commitment issues for his early resignation.
Money said: “There are so many people at this club who have worked so hard to get it to the level it is playing right now and it deserves to stay there.
“To do so it needs someone who can fully commit to the club’s future and unfortunately I am unable to do that right now.”
Owers urges players to go on loan
Following National League strugglers Torquay United’s early FA Cup exit, manager Gary Owers is encouraging some of his squad players to take the chance to get some playing time elsewhere. A tough draw against Hartlepool United left them out of the cup, with even less chance for fringe players to impress, and particularly get game time and match fitness.
“Some of the lads that haven’t been playing need to think about how they’re going to get fit,” Owers told BBC Radio Devon, following their FA Cup exit.
