Sparkes and Verma leave

Very sad to see Sparkes leave. He's the best winger we've had for a while and will be tough to replace. He's a great example of the type of players we need to target. We gave him a chance to step up to full time football and he's now got another move, closer to home and presumably with better money....

The Play Offs

If you come 3rd in League One, or 4th in League Two or 2nd in the Conference, you know you're not getting promoted automatically. There's nothing unfair at all about these sides contesting the play-offs. Their league position is based on the whole season (and prize money etc), and to get promoted th...

F A Trophy

I can see both sides of this. In an ideal world we would win every game we play, but I think a lot of the reason why the FA Trophy is so unfavoured is due to its own make-up. For clubs at National League level, the money on offer is not significant, so you have to make the final to make any real mon...

The Play Offs

The play-offs are great, and I'm quite surprised that support for them isn't higher. They keep the season alive for a lot of teams for a lot longer, and for that reason alone are worthwhile. If you are mid table at Christmas, as by definition the most teams are, you aim to scrape into the play-offs....

The Play Offs

Both ties 0-0 at half time. Halifax v Chorley kicked off 15 mins late, and Ebbsleet are down to 10 men after a bad tackle on Josh Rees.

Edit: Chelmsford 1-0 up.

Durrell Berry?

I think Hodgkiss will surely be target number one for right back. I also can't see us having two dedicated right backs in the squad, which probably puts Berry in with the 'wait and see' group of five, only with the additional hurdle of having to prove his fitness. Unless he comes back on trial, non-...

Retain List

Pretty much as you would expect. Gerring, Duke and Hancox are not near the first team, so no surprises there. All the rest of the squad has been pretty close to the team, so are in the manager's plans. They are then split into those he definitely wants to keep and those who are not 100%, so need to ...

Nathan Smith

He went to Rhyl on loan. He's back at Wigan now and still only 20, so has time on his side.

Retain lists released. Anyone worth a look at?

Fitzpatrick was released by AFC Wimbledon today - his return of goals and assists was excellent in his spell here and I think he'd be a great permanent signing if he's interested.

TorquayFans Player of the Year 2016/17

Another season over, and another Great Escape, but the 2016/17 season played out slightly differently to the preceding year. Kevin Nicholson was in charge for the full season, which meant there was not quite such a revolution. In 2015/16 most of the team that started the season left part-way through...

Final Game - North Ferriby @ 12:15

I make that a revised home average including last match = 1,888 Indeed, an increase on 2015/16, and there were some very encouraging figures. I'll update the site with the last game asap, although annoyingly the club haven't announced the breakdown of away fans, for the first time in six years. If ...

Retain List

The only two I would definitely keep whatever the circumstances would be Sparkes and Young. The rest depends on who the manager is and what the budget is. Personally I would keep Nicholson regardless, but it doesn't matter who is in charge if we don't have a competitive budget. The Cowleys did a bri...
