Cannon your correct that Truro FC will play at the Stadium. Pirates owner Dicky Evans took over the club in June.

So that is another 21 leauge games and whatever cup fixtures they have  - but what gate do they attract?
How much investment would they need to move up from Southern league even to league 2?

The new December Train Timetable should see trains PZ- Plymouth  every half hour - almost a turn up & go service and all stop Truro

Thanks - we've been fighting negativity and ill-informed naysayers for many years, so I'll always fight our corner. 
On travel to Truro from PZ, hopefully transport will be laid on for those of us in the PZ area. As Dotcom says, rail travel would be pretty convenient, and there is a park and ride adjacent to the stadium site.

No doubt there will be an ever-reliable First bus service from Truro train station to the new Langarth town. I would imagine this would make traveling from PZ relatively straight forward. That being said I would imagine there will be a new bus directly from PZ to Langarth, assuming they don't simply extend the existing Tinner services to cover it.

OldNick is a pain in the backside, I had a run in with him on a different rugby forum after he slated the officials for his team losing. Come to think of it he's quite a negative person, must be an age thing.

OldNick is a true Rugby fan and can be very critical. He has slated Ealing Trailfinders facilities in the past and going way back our quagmire of a grass pitch before 3G.

Our WC,s or lack of them,how long it took to get a beer and the extortionate cost of food!. He was right on all accounts.

I was at a pre match celebratory meal at Cornish Pirates where the room was buzzing with excitement about the start of construction at the new ground.I bought raffle tickets for the honour of the 'breaking of ground' This was in May 2018 and here we are !.

I look forward to visiting the new ground but I agree with OldNick that there have been too many false starts.

In Cornwall  the Eden Project, Hall4Cornwall and Falmouth Univercity all were "Dreckly" projects. They are now all multi million pound sustainable successful ventures. That is why i am confident the Stadium4Cornwall wil be the same and confirmed before the end of this month.

My understanding was that Truro were selling their ground for a supermarket new build and going to contribute some of the proceeds to the Stadium for Cornwall , their new shared ground.

Did Dicky Evans buy the Truro ground to sell on to raise money for the S4C project . As the sale of Truro Football ground happened ?. 

When I tried to add up the various sources of funding previously from information gleaned from the Blog it was......

I asked the question about funding and the blog shows this detail

Truro and Penwith College          £2.m
Cornish Pirates                           £2.m
Truro City FC                              £2.m
Private sector borrowing             £2.m
Greenwich Leisure Ltd (GLL).      £0.3m
Total                                          £8.3m

This leaves a funding gap of £6m. 

This will be made up by £3 Million from Cornwall council and the Government the other £3 Million.

You get 3/10 try harder do your homework. I wont bother to waste my time giving you the correct figures. Why does a Ealing supporter have such a "Hang Up" about the Pirates?

Apoligises if the sums are wrong but they came from the blog you directed me to some time ago. I have no hang up about Pirates but as I said I was at the end of season celebratory meal and have visited Cornish pirates several times.

You may remember you questioned Ealing Trailfinders business model/ sustainability and had the whole structure completely wrong. I am asking you what the figures are and where the money is coming from. I find the Blog  very misleading.

We have both had our say. I think it is appropriate now to wait for the decision before i make any further comments.
