Eight players, including long-serving captain Jake Ash, have agreed contracts to play for Truro City for the forthcoming season.

Truro will play in National League South after gaining promotion by winning the Southern Premier League play-off final last month.

Ash has been with the club for 10 years and has his testimonial next month.

Also agreeing deals are Tom McHale, Ed Palmer, Shane Krac, Cody Cooke, Craig Duff, Shane White and Rob Farkins.

"We always wanted to keep him," manager Steve Tully said of Ash. "He's been at the club for a long time, it was making sure the deal was right for us as well as him.

"We offered contracts to 14 players, and if we can get all 14 I'll be one happy chap.

"I believe they can step up. We need to add a few experienced players, but we're not going to be far away."
