Knill Announced As New Manager

Knill Announced As New Manager

Well it was the appointment we expected, Alan Knill has been made the permanent manager of Torquay following the departure of Martin Ling.

The club were in discussions with Alan since the moment they took the decision to 'part ways' (polite isn't it) with Martin, but at least the situation has been sorted quickly and plans for the new season can commence.

Chairwoman Thea Bristow told the Official Site as the announcement was made.

'I am absolutely thrilled to welcome Alan Knill as the new manager of our club. Alan was obviously the number one candidate for the job and I would like to personally thank him for his efforts last sason. We welcome him to the permanent position of Torquay manager and look forward to happy times ahead.'
