    FFS I only booked a train ticket to Torquay three days ago. That's 25 quid wasted if the game is moved. Luckily I haven't booked the return leg yet and I can cancel my accommodation without being charged.

    Good for their supporters if it happens but what the hell is the owner playing at messing everyone around like this?

    Attendance for Truro v Hemel Hempstead at Torquay yesterday was 86.

    There’s still a possibility that it will be played in Torquay. Although you will still need to factor in that if Torquay get through to the next round of the cup on Saturday and get drawn at home our game could be moved to the Sunday.

    One assumes you could miss the soccer and have a lovely & uninterrupted day out in Torquay.

    Which sounds like a bit of a double win, tbh.

    Exactly. Everything is up in the air. Even if they decide they're moving back to Truro presumably it will take time to make the ground fit again as it hasn't been used for several months, and the league will need to approve it for use. Or maybe junior teams have been using it?

    I'm aware of the Torquay FA Cup factor, I flagged it up last week in another thread which has now slipped down the list of threads. We'd still be in a similar situation if we'd won the FA Cup match at Eastbourne, but it's annoying.

    It seems a bit arrogant to assume that people will automagically know to which of the family of footballs one is referring.

    Association football can only benefit from terminological exactitude.
