Torquay United Football Club is delighted to announce

the signing of striker, James Gray.

Gray (25) joined the Club on trial during pre-season and has found the net against Newton Abbot Spurs, Bristol City, and Tiverton Town.

James spent most of his youth career with his hometown club, Middlesbrough FC. He then moved on to Darlington, Kettering Town, and Accrington Stanley. Spells at Wrexham and Southport were followed by one with Northern Irish side, Glenavon.

“I am delighted to have signed James,” said player-manager, Kevin Nicholson.

“He has shown a real grit and determination during pre-season to get his career back on track after a rough year. He deserves that chance and has shown that he is hard working, aggressive, and good in front of goal.

“His next task is to get himself in the team, but I can be sure that he will keep all of the strikers on their toes with his enthusiasm and work rate.

“If he keeps up his work ethic, he is the type of player that our fans will take to, and the kind of guy that will do well in our environment.

“He has earned his chance, and now I expect him to show us all even more of what he can do.”

We spoke to James about signing for the Club and we’ll be uploading the video soon.
