The installation of the 3G Pitch at Silver Bow has increased the capital commitment to the project by Helical to £3.8M

Truro City chairman Peter Masters has confirmed the club will stay at their Treyew Road ground next season.

The club has reached a compromise with developers Helical, meaning their proposed new Silver Bow ground will now have an artificial 3G surface.

Masters said on Thursday the Cornish side had been in talks about sharing Torquay United's Plainmoor.

"We will be playing at Treyew Road for the whole of next season," Masters wrote on the club website.external-link

"It's been no secret that I was not in favour of a groundshare, especially with promotion to the National South."

Cornwall Council are due to make a decision on planning permission for Truro's proposed new Silver Bow site next month, with Treyew Road to be turned into a retail park.

Truro beat St Neots Town in the Southern Premier League play-off final to win promotion to the Conference South.

"The Silver Bow ground will still be of Conference grade A specification, but it will now incorporate a 3G pitch in lieu of the grass pitch," added Masters.

"This of course is fine for the National South League and below but not accepted at this time in the National League and above.

"I understand the 3G may well be accepted in the National League in the not-too distant future."
