MATCH REPORT - Bishop's Stortford 4 Truro City 0 - 29/04/2017

THE WHITE Tigers ended the season with a disappointing 4-0 reverse at already-relegated Bishop’s Stortford.

It was a slow start for Lee Hodges’ side and we fell behind on nine minutes when Sam Ford found the net.
As we looked to get back on level terms, Aaran Pugh went close when he met a corner with a towering header that went over.
The home side managed to double their advantage on 24 minutes when some more sloppy defensive play allowed Elliot Ronto to find the back of the net.
Our afternoon got worse as the interval approached when the home side won a penalty and Evans Kouassi stepped up to make it 3-0.
It was a case of game over just a minute later when Aaron Greene made it four against a Truro side without the spirit of the previous game when we secured our National League South status.
The opening exchanges of the second period saw The White Tigers trying to regain some pride as Tyler Harvey put an inviting ball across the face of goal before an acrobatic effort from Rocky Neal landed just over.
With the clock ticking down, Les Afful, on in place of the injured Harvey, went close with a strike but in truth the game was starting to peter out as we ended the campaign with a 4-0 reverse.

TRURO CITY: McHale, Bentley, Richards, Booth (Knowles), Pugh, Adelsbury, Brett (Yetton), Cooke, Neal, Harvey (Afful), Thompson. Subs not used: Hartridge, Smith.
