Robinson Confident He Can Turn It All Around At Truro

New Truro City manager Leigh Robinson knows he needs to hit the ground running.

But the White Tigers boss says he can overcome off field difficulties and a poor start to turn things around.

The 37-year-old Taunton Town manager is the man charged with repairing Truro’s National League South season.

Winless and with only three draws to their name, Robinson knows the kick-start to their campaign needs to come sooner rather than later.

His first game in charge is an away game at Gloucester City this weekend.

He told the club’s website that he and assistant Micheal Meaker are up for the challenge.

“As a management team we have had a very successful couple of years and are now hungry to prove ourselves at a higher level,” he said.

“We are, of course, aware that there has been a lot of uncertainty and upheaval at the club in the last few months with the stadium move and the management team leaving early on in the season.

“However, we also have to be single-minded in our approach to moulding the team into what we want it to be and start winning football matches despite all the off field stuff and this is what we’ll be looking to do quickly.

“The chairman has shown a great deal of faith in us as a management team and we are determined to repay that by working hard, making key decisions and getting the team on an upward curve ASAP.

“We are very much inheriting the squad that was built by Lee Hodges and Chris Todd over the summer and it will take a couple of weeks to fully assess things and work out the best way forwards.

“But, we are certainly looking forward to meeting and getting to know the players as well as seeing what they have to offer on the pitch in the coming weeks as we look to put our stamp on things.”
