Truro City manager Lee Hodges says the National League South club can develop their younger talent for the future.

Hodges, 42, was re-appointed as Truro boss in June, with his former Plymouth Argyle team-mate Rory Fallon joining the club as his assistant manager.

"What I have found is that I have more youth whereas I had more experience before," he told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"I've brought in some young lads. They aren't ready for 90 minutes but we're looking towards the future, not now."

The former Argyle and Torquay United midfielder is looking to draw on his former club to give his squad more options.

"Part of their development is giving the lads opportunities, not only here but I've had one or two at Torquay at the moment as well," he continued.

"It's great what we're doing but hopefully we can bring lads here to give them opportunities to play at as high a level as possible."

Fallon, 34, a New Zealand international, still believes he can continue his playing career, despite taking up a player-coach role with the club.

"He wants to be part of the New Zealand team that can make the World Cup hopefully," Hodges said.

"He wants to play for at least another couple of years but also he wants to get on that ladder of doing the coaching as well, so it works great for us both."
