Torbay’s naturally inspiring newspaper, Torbay Weekly, is set to launch a new series which highlights the most memorable moments and figures from the club’s past.
Launching in August, Inside The Gulls will provide the Yellow Army with a wonderful array of stories from the dramatic history of Torquay United AFC, by lifting the lid on some of the great players, managers, incidents and campaigns since the club’s formation in 1899.
Using exclusive interviews with legends of the Plainmoor past, the series has been compiled by Dave Thomas, TUFC correspondent for over 40 years, and former United Club Secretary and Press Officer Tim Herbert.
Inside The Gulls will be speaking to the personalities who have shaped the club’s history, remembering the greatest moments, as well as the challenging times, with memories from the Yellow Army and the many Plainmoor heroes we have all enjoyed down the years.
This unique enterprise will cover 41 different chapters, from the glorious displays of the likes of Neville Southall and Eunan O’Kane, to the comings and goings behind the scenes, the wonders of the Popside and so much more.
During the first edition, Torbay Weekly chats to the irrepressible Neville Southall, one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time, who remembers his time at Plainmoor as a career highlight.
Inside the Gulls will be a downloadable series through www.torbayweekly.co.uk and costs just £9.99 to subscribe, equating to just 25p per chapter. Those signing up will receive four chapters each week over 10 weeks, beginning in August.
In addition to the digital version of Inside The Gulls, subscribers will receive a printed glossy bookazine copy on completion of the series, at no extra cost.
Signing up to Inside The Gulls also benefits the club, with a percentage from every subscription donated to supporting the club as well as a specific Plainmoor project sponsored by Torbay Weekly.
