Cornish patsies, Tinmen & c**k a boodle do

Recommended Posts

Interesting artical on FourFourTwo website by Paul Simpson. A football writer from outside the county.

Paul Simpson has edited Champions, the official UEFA Champions League magazine, since its launch in 2004. Before that, he launched FourFourTwo as editor in 1994.

Cornwall’s football may prosper if troubled property magnate Kevin Heaney achieves his dream of making Truro City the first Cornish club in the Football League.

The Tinmen, winners of the 2007 FA Vase, have four rungs to climb on the non-league ladder.

As Truro has a population of 20,000 – nearly a third smaller than Accrington’s – such a goal seems on a par with Kevin Costner’s dream of building a baseball stadium on his farm.

The difference being, alas, that dreams come true more often in Hollywood movies than in football.

Is this the perception of football in cornwall from those outside the county?

I thought Truro were nicknamed the White Tigers?
