• TUFC kick-off 2015-16 season

    Tomorrow afternoon at 3.00pm, together with many of my fellow Ellacombe-ites, I plan to be at The Launa Windows Stadium, Plainmoor, for Torquay United’s season start against Macclesfield Town.

    “Just another season kicking-off” or even, “Here we go again” some less enthusiastic folk cry. But this time, it is not just another season. As those of us who have followed the recent and close-season machinations at the club well know, we are very lucky to be kicking off the new season at all.

    At one stage, it genuinely seemed that our proud club would be going into administration. This is a fate that has become an almost occupational hazard for clubs at lower league levels. As the ongoing downturn and austerity hit, and as disposable income disappeared for so many in the Bay, paying for live football obviously came under severe pressure.

    However, thanks to a new group of fan investors, we have a club, we have a new manager - Paul Cox - who really means business, we have a largely new squad of bright young players, and we kick off the season in what this year is known as the Vanarama National League (to old hands like me, aka the Football Conference) with optimism.

    I do not normally mix business with this bulletin, but Sue and I are proud that, this year, our Ellacombe business is sponsoring commanding new defensive signing Exodus Geohaghon for the season. We wish him the very best of luck – as we do all our brave lads – and we especially look forward to seeing plenty of clean sheets and examples of his famed long-throw technique!

    Finally, spare a thought for club captain Luke Young, who will be sitting out the kick-off with injury. We hope he is back very soon. We will certainly need him. I see that Arsenal will be without Jack Wilshire for the start of the season - Luke is at least an equivalent loss for us!

    Come on you Yellowwwzzzz….
