Paul Wilkinson has been announced as the new caretaker manager of Truro City Football Club until the end of the season.
Following the sacking of Leigh Robinson on Tuesday evening, club chairman Peter Masters broke the news of Wilkinson coming in live on BBC Radio Cornwall on Wednesday afternoon.
Wilkinson takes the role until the end of the season and has the difficult job of trying to keep the White Tigers up with just six games remaining.
With over 650 professional appearances and 150 goals to his name, playing at the likes of Everton, Nottingham Forest, Grimsby, Middlesbrough and Watford, Paul brings vital experience to Truro.
He managed the reserves at Grimsby Town following his retirement before joining Cardiff’s coaching team and working at the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Norwich. He then became assistant manager at Northampton before becoming assistant at Grimsby where he was also interim manager for a short stage.
Welcome to Truro City Paul and good luck for the rest of the season.
