EX-SAINT Paul Wotton has taken his first managerial position at Truro City Football Club.

The 41-year-old was a member of the side that won the Johnstone's Paint Trophy in 2010.

He had joined the club two years before that from Plymouth Argyle and went on to make 61 appearances on the south coast.

Following his retirement in 2015, Wotton would later become Argyle's assistant manager before being offered the main job at Truro City.

Speaking to the club's website, the former Saint said: “This is my first manager’s job so it’s exciting for me and a real positive step forward on my career path. 

“It’s a club with a great tradition in non-league circles and I’m looking forward to getting started. The infrastructure is getting bigger and better.

“The club is run in a vastly more professional way. I’m a professional person so the more good people you’ve got around you the better.

“The squad needs adding to, but they’ve got to be the right player for Truro City Football Club. 

“It’s important we sign the right player for the club. I’m not panicking on that, my priority is building the right squad.”

During his time at Saints, Wotton was loaned out to both Oxford United and Yeovil Town.

He would eventually sign a permanent deal with Yeovil in 2011, which brought an end to his three-year stint at St Mary's.

But before retiring, he squeezed in one last lengthy spell at Plymouth, with his last competitive game being against Portsmouth.
