TORQUAY United Football Club will be hosting two very special events in the next couple of weeks, as the build-up intensifies before the beginning of the new season.

The first-team will hold an open training session from 2pm – 4pm on Wednesday, July 25, with supporters invited to come in and watch before getting their signatures and selfies with the players.

From 4pm, we welcome the media for the annual team photo-shoot, an event exclusive to our invited sponsors to join the squad for team pictures from our official photographers at Pinnacle Photo Agency.

We then move forward to Tuesday, July 31 and from 6pm – 8pm, a brand new addition to the calendar, which will be exclusive to Torquay United season-ticket holders and sponsors, will see the presentation of the Gordon Oliver Trophy to the top player from 2017-18 in the Football Development Programme.

This celebration of our aspirations to restore an excellent football programme for young players at Torquay United will also be a chance for season-ticket holders to meet the chairman, coaching staff and players.

The season-ticket event on July 31 is available through pre-booking only. Please let us know if you plan on attending by emailing
