Former Forest Green boss on brink of promotion


Former Forest Green boss Mark Cooper is on the brink of leading Yeovil Town to the National League South title.

Cooper’s Glovers require a point against groundless Truro City, who they face at Gloucester City’s Meadow Park stadium, tonight, Thursday.

Cooper, who spent five years at Forest Green, leading the Nailsworth side into League Two via the National League play-offs in 2017.

The Glovers boast a trio of former Forest Green players in their line-up, including striker Rhys Murphy and midfielders Jordan Stevens and Cooper’s son Charlie. Midfielder Matt Worthington also spent time on loan at the New Lawn. Yeovil assistant manager is former Forest Green captain Chris Todd and the Glovers’ Director of Football is ex-Forest Green head of medical Ian Weston.

Truro face six games in 10 days and two in 24 hours.

Truro City, of National League South, have been forced to groundshare this season as work on their new round continues. The Cornish club started the season playing their ‘home’ games at Plymouth Parkway.

However, a string of postponements forced them to find another temporary home, 125 miles away at Taunton Town. But more weather-related pitch problems now see them playing at North League North side Gloucester City, almost 200 miles away from Truro.
