The White Tigers continue their positive start to the new season


The White Tigers continued their positive start to the new season with a comfortable 3-0 win over Dorchester Town on Tuesday night.

Goals from Harlain Mbayo, Luke Jephcott and Noah Keats meant it was two wins from two for Paul Wotton’s men.

After defeating Met Police 0-2 on Saturday, Truro didn’t have long to recover before welcoming Dorchester to Treyew Road.

City started the brighter and had to big chances inside the opening ten minutes. James Ward, who made his league debut, expertly picked out Luke Jephcott who’s effort went well wide of the post.

Jamie Richards then latched onto a pinpoint cross from Will Dean but couldn’t keep his header down.

The Dorchester strike partnership struggled to break down a resolute Truro back three but Charlie Davis did force James Hamon into a great save.

Niall Thompson then fired home past a helpless Daniel Strugnell only for the offside flag to be put up.

Although City weren’t to be denied for long. Harlain Mbayo raised the highest to head home for 1-0 after 37 minutes.

Man of the Match Harrison Davis could have doubled our lead in a matter of minutes but his strike was well deflected for a corner.

Going into the second half Truro continued to dominate the contest. Austen Booth reacted first and saw his effort blocked. Hamon was then called into action again as he stopped Blairs strike before City got their deserved second.

A brilliant solo goal from Luke Jephcott doubled our advantage as the young striker shrugged off two defenders before firing across goal from a difficult angle to put some daylight between us and our Dorset counterparts.

We weren’t finished just yet as with a minute to play Noah Keats added a third. The midfielder powerfully volleyed home to wrap up a perfect evening for the White Tigers.
