Dickson adapts to life changes

Truro City’s Cornish midfielder Ryan Dickson has revealed that the club was always on his mind during his playing career higher in the football pyramid.

The 34-year-old, who counts Southampton, Plymouth Argyle and Yeovil Town as his former clubs, hails from Saltash and explained that he had always admired the White Tigers from a distance.

Speaking exclusively to the Voice, Dickson opened up about his affinity to the Treyew Road club.

“It is something, I have always had in the back of my head,” he explained.

“When I was growing up and Stewart Yetton was here, it was fascinating to watch the rise of them and see them going from an amateur football club to where we are now.

“There is a bright future ahead for both Truro and Cornwall. This will be my last club now so I want to stay as long as I can and help sustainably build the club, get it promoted and have success.”

The versatile player, who spent time on the sidelines with an injury earlier in the season but returned after the November lockdown, has had to adjust to life since signing for Paul Wotton’s men.

Initially joining on loan in 2019, the deal marked the end of Dickson’s full-time professional career and has seen him attempt to get used to life with a new coaching job.

He admitted that the change hasn’t been the easiest.

“The transition to part-time football, especially this year with covid, has been a big change and has taken some getting used to,” he continued.

“Not training as much and not being involved in football has been different but when match days and training come round, I have really enjoyed it.

“I want to stay in football and play for Truro for as long as I can. After that, I want to see how far coaching can take me and at the minute I am coaching three times a week through Plymouth.

“It is hard in this part of the world, it isn’t a footballing place, especially Cornwall. I don’t see myself moving away from the area again and my passion is in football and it is where I can add value to people in this part of the world.”
