The White Tigers

Truro City Football Club, nicknamed “The White Tigers,” is a non-league football club based in Plymouth, Devon.

Established in 1889, they currently compete in the Vanarama National League South, which is part of the sixth tier of English football. The team calls Bolitho Park their home ground.

Truro City Football Club, established in 1889, quickly made its mark by winning the Cornwall Senior Cup in 1895 and eventually claiming the title a record 15 times. Initially competing in the Cornwall Senior League, they switched to the Plymouth & District League in 1934 due to financial and spectator concerns, later achieving success in both leagues. Their mid-20th-century journey was marked by mixed results; they struggled initially upon joining the South Western League in 1951 but eventually clinched several championships.

The early 2000s heralded a transformative era for Truro City, with new ownership in 2004 leading to a series of promotions, peaking with an FA Vase victory at the New Wembley Stadium in 2007. This success continued with a historic achievement of five promotions in six seasons, culminating in reaching the National League South. Financial difficulties in the 2012/13 season led to relegation, but the club bounced back, gaining promotion again in 2014/15. Acquired by the Cornish Pirates in 2019, they faced ground changes before triumphantly returning to the National League South in 2023 after a playoff victory, underlining their resilience and enduring competitive spirit.
