A Catch Up With: Hayden Jones on Bamber’s Right Foot Fanzine

The Final instalment of our fascinating series on TUFC fanzines sees an interview with Hayden Jones on ‘Bamber’s Right Foot’: When did Bamber’s Right Foot start and how long did it run for? Blimey. Now you’re asking. I believe that the first issue was launched on an unsuspecting world in around 1992. And I further believe that issue … More A Catch Up With: Hayden Jones on Bamber’s Right Foot Fanzine

The TT Match Verdict: Aldershot 1-0 #TUFC 14th Oct

Match Summary: Another season, another exit from the FA Cup at the earliest possible stage. Have Torquay United ever heard of the magic of the Cup? Is there actually a competition we are any good at any more? In what was another forgetful FA Cup tie, neither team played particularly well in a game of … More The TT Match Verdict: Aldershot 1-0 #TUFC 14th Oct

A Catch Up With: Tony Jordan on Mission Impossible Fanzine

The second in our H2H fanzine series from Rob Dand, features Tony Jordan discussing the #TUFC ‘Mission Impossible’ Fanzine: TJ – I don’t seem, to have any copies of “Mission Impossible”. I’m rather unsentimental and gave the last copies away some time ago. I gather that James Mitchell boasts a complete set of 10, which I dimly recall spanned … More A Catch Up With: Tony Jordan on Mission Impossible Fanzine

The TT Match Verdict: #TUFC 0-2 Dover Athletic – 7th Oct

Match Summary: Back down to earth with a bump on Non-League Day. Dover came to Plainmoor and showed why they are fighting at the top of the National League, whilst our poor display shows why Owers still has plenty of hard work on his hands. We actually start the game reasonably well, but one long … More The TT Match Verdict: #TUFC 0-2 Dover Athletic – 7th Oct

The TT Match Verdict: #TUFC 4-0 Maidenhead United 3rd Oct 17

Match Summary: We waited and waited (and waited) for the first win, and it finally arrived in style, as an amazing first half blitz of four goals was enough to send a late arriving Maidenhead side packing and turn the Yellow Army’s seemingly permanent frowns upside down! Everything United touched in a fantastic first half … More The TT Match Verdict: #TUFC 4-0 Maidenhead United 3rd Oct 17

The TT Match Verdict – Dagenham & Redbridge 1-0 #TUFC 30th Sept

Match Summary: A tale as old as time itself. Torquay went to a better side, probably just about shaded the game, spurned countless chances to score and then chucked in a soft goal at the death. “Déjà vu all over again” as the great Yogi Berra might’ve said, if he’d had sufficient interest in a … More The TT Match Verdict – Dagenham & Redbridge 1-0 #TUFC 30th Sept

The TT Weekly Blog and Match Prediction Poll – 29th Sept

Ed @DomRoman is back with his weekly blog in an uncharacteristically quiet week at Plainmoor 1 – Daggers Preview Let’s be realistic here, it doesn’t look good for tomorrow! Daggers are the highest scorers in the league with 25 goals so far (and boast the league’s top scorer in Corey Whitely), which is exactly the same … More The TT Weekly Blog and Match Prediction Poll – 29th Sept

A Catch Up With: Alan Merson on Capital Gulls Fanzine

Highway to Hele Editor Rob Dand interviewed the people behind previous TUFC fanzines for H2H last year, but these were only partly included in the zine; so he has kindly shared the full versions with us at Torquay Talk. Below is the first of those interviews with BTPIR’s Alan Merson about the ‘CAPITAL GULLS’ Fanzine: When did Capital Gulls start and … More A Catch Up With: Alan Merson on Capital Gulls Fanzine

The TT Match Verdict: #TUFC 0-1 Macclesfield 23rd Sept

Match Summary: New management team, same old story. United struggle to create chances and give away a Sunday league goal that literally hurts my head to think about! The first half starts with little action, until the Murphy non-decision (see key moment) does nothing for our mood or the players momentum. After that the Silkmen … More The TT Match Verdict: #TUFC 0-1 Macclesfield 23rd Sept

#TULFC 1-0 Bournemouth Ladies – 17th Sept

The Headlines: A crowd of around 200-300 mostly human people, including local sports teams and renowned chip-botherer Gilbert the Gull, witnessed the Torquay United Ladies side progress to the third qualifying round of the Women’s FA Cup, which will be contested on the Planet Earth in early October. A dominating and disciplined performance from TULFC saw … More #TULFC 1-0 Bournemouth Ladies – 17th Sept

The TT Match Verdict: Barrow AFC 1-1 #TUFC 16th September 2017

I’ll get the cliché clang out of the way immediately, if you’d have offered me that point before kick-off, I’d have bitten your hand off. Make no mistake, Barrow, as always, is a tough place to go – I did actually predict we would go one further today and secure the win, we were so close, but it wasn’t to be. … More The TT Match Verdict: Barrow AFC 1-1 #TUFC 16th September 2017

The TT Weekly Blog and Barrow Match Prediction Poll – 15th Sept 17

Ed @DomRoman talks about the new coaching duo at Plainmoor, and previews the Barrow game… Gary and Martin The announcement on Wednesday morning did not exactly send the Yellow Army into raptures of celebration. Owers and Kuhl were not two names linked with the jobs, and are not well known to the general footballing community … More The TT Weekly Blog and Barrow Match Prediction Poll – 15th Sept 17

The TT Match Verdict: Bromley 3-1 #TUFC 12th Sept

Match Summary A frustrating performance from the Gulls. It was written in the stars that ex-gull Brett Williams would play a part in the result, and his hat-trick was enough to condemn us to another defeat. The most annoying part is that the team didn’t play that badly. A lack of quality in the final … More The TT Match Verdict: Bromley 3-1 #TUFC 12th Sept

Alex Russell – ‘Gullactico’ – H2H Article July 17

One of my favourite ever Torquay United players; Alex Russell started his footballing life as a youngster at the mighty Liverpool FC in the early nineties (alongside Redknapp, McManaman etc.), and after leaving Anfield played for the likes of Burscough, Rochdale, Glenavon and Cambridge, before signing for United (at the age of 28) in the … More Alex Russell – ‘Gullactico’ – H2H Article July 17

The TT Match Verdict – #TUFC 1-1 Chester FC 2nd Sept

Match Summary: Well I asked for more heart and pride from those wearing yellow today, and I got it. A make-shift United team, buoyed by excellent performances from our three new loanees, showed more determination and skill than we’ve seen since April. We do everything but take chances to kill the game off, especially in … More The TT Match Verdict – #TUFC 1-1 Chester FC 2nd Sept
