Striker Brett Williams has left Torquay United after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.

Williams, 31, signed in the summer of 2016 and found his stride late in the season to score 11 goals to steer United clear of relegation trouble. United’s season came to a head against Dover Athletic and Williams found the net twice to help United clinch survival.

Williams then left the Club to sign for Bromley but returned in January 2018 on loan until the end of the season. He signed on a permanent basis for the second time in the summer of 2017. He added two goals in United’s 7-0 win over Lymington in the televised FA Cup 2nd round qualifying this season.

He joined Sutton United on a one-month loan deal in December 2018.

“I was happy for Brett to find a football home for himself,” said TUFC manager, Gary Johnson. “Coming to Torquay, it was too far away for his family to cope with, especially as he wasn’t getting as many games as he would have liked.

“We wish him well and thank him for his previous service.”
