Cornwall is the next county on this list of counties without an EFL side, and subsequently they are also the largest county in this list. The only city however in Cornwall is Truro. A holiday hotspot, the city has a population of just under 20 thousand, and is 230 miles south-west of London.
Cornwall is more renowned for its beaches and cliffs, rather than its footballing abilities
Ironically enough though, the cities of Plymouth and Exeter both sit right on the Cornish border, unfortunately edging to the other side of it. This makes this post something that exists, but also means that Cornwall could’ve had footballing success this entire time.
The city of Truro is historically awe-inspiring, with a cathedral that pierces the skyline
Truro does have a football club however, as do most cities. But they currently sit in 9th in the 7th tier of English football, surrounded by the likes of Chesham Town, Salisbury and Swindon Supermarine. No real need to include those, just thought they were interesting places to include.
The team play in a white and gold home kit and a red and black away kit, and are actually owned by a rugby team, the Cornish Pirates, who are based in Penzance, Cornwall.
The Truro FC lineup is nothing to write home about…yet
The football clubs highest ever finish was 4th in the National League South, which is the 6th tier of English football, so…not an amazing reach. But that can be fixed, and fixed quickly.
Create Truro FC in Create a Club, put them in League 2, and make their rivals Exeter City.
Give the club a white home kit, with gold highlights, and a red and black away kit, whilst making the badge a red circle, preferably with black/white included
Put them in Town Park, and name the stadium Bolitho Park.
Beat Exeter and Plymouth at every meeting, and win the FA Cup before either of them.
And that’s it. Not a massive ask really, and for Cornwall this could mean a great deal, considering the county is usually famed for their pasties.
Anyone else hungry?
