FIRST half goals from Ryan Law and Niall Thompson meant Truro City started the new season with a comfortable away win against Met Police at Imber Court, writes Cameron Weldon.

After a rather uneventful opening 20 minutes which saw very little goal bound action for either side, the game came to life on 23 minutes.

Full back Ryan Law had a nice one two with Niall Thompson before hammering a shot across goal giving the keeper no chance to put the White Tigers ahead.

Truro dominance was rewarded as Will Dean's beautifully weighted pass cut through the Met defence for Niall Thompson who made no mistake, firing hard and low into the bottom corner.

0-2 up and cruising at the break, City started the second half how they ended the first.

Austen Booth saw a distance effort go over the bar while Luke Jephcott stung the hands of the keeper with his first time effort.

Dean also had a shot sail high and wide before Harrison Davis had a good move with substitute Louis Rooney ended earlier due to offside.

James Hamon in the Truro goal had very little to do but was forced in a close range save near the end of the second half.

More Truro chances followed. Rooney looked lively and had a near post shot pushed away for a corner as Truro saw the game out.

The White Tigers are back in action on Tuesday evening as they welcome Dorchester Town to Treyew Road. (Kick-off 7.45pm)

Truro: Hamon, Davis, Law, Gafaiti, Mbayo, Richards (C), Keats (Garside 85), Dean, Booth, Jephcott, Thompson (Rooney 61).
