Truro City have been given more time to pay a £50,000 bond to ensure their membership of the Football Conference. The club faced expulsion from the league after failing to pay the bond by the original deadline of 17:00 BST on Thursday 11 October.

But they will now have until 17:00 BST on Thursday 18 October to pay the money which covers the costs of teams travelling to Truro if the club folds.
The Blue Square Bet South club went into administration in August.
"It's great news that we've got an extension until Thursday," James Moore, lawyer for administrators Walsh Taylor, told BBC South West Sport.
Saturday's scheduled game against Dover Athletic, which was called off earlier this week, has not been re-instated.
In a statement, the Football Conference said the information received from the administrator was "encouraging".
The statement continued: "This opportunity did not come to light until Wednesday evening, so it was not possible for the administrator to complete a purchase before close of business on Thursday.
"At an emergency Board meeting held on Friday afternoon the Directors expressed their hope for this latest development and granted the club, through the administrator, seven further days, until 5.00pm on Thursday 18 October, to meet its requirements and complete a sale.
"If the club fails to meet this deadline, the Board will be obliged to consider the club's further participation in the Competition."
But even if Truro City is saved, manager Lee Hodges says he may find it hard to persuade his players to stay for another week with no pay.
They are currently owed three month's money, with Hodges saying he and his squad want at least half of one month's wages in order to play next week.
