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 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”.

Leroy had us purring like a new born kitten, and I attended more away matches that season than any other. I had time on my hands and money to spend, so that year’s success … More H2H FANZINE ARTICLE: Match in Time – Hull City 0-1 Torquay United
This article (first published in H2H Issue 4 in early 2015) was triggered by our very own captain fantastic (as he was at the time!) Luke Young. His heroic and spectacular volleyed winner against Wrexham in October 2014, made a number of Torquay fans nominate it as the ‘GREATEST GOAL’ they’ve seen scored by a … More HIGHWAY TO HELE ARTICLE: Torquay United ‘Top 40 Goals’ (+ Feb 17 Update)
I have supported United for a long time and have seen lots of good players (and lots of bad). Over the summer the TUFC programme editor asked me for my all-time United 5 a side team. It was difficult to choose but final 5, but I settled on Olejnik, Loram, Russell, Graham and Steve Woods … More HIGHWAY TO HELE ARTICLE: Steve Woods – Gullactico!
