Time at Club:
Torquay are on the search for a new manager - more to follow!
Having played most of their recent history in the Football League it was a huge disappointment to fans when the Gulls were relegated to the Conference at the end of the 2006-2007 when they finished bottom of the table.
However, it wasn't long before they were back into the Football League as in the 2008-2009 season they gained promotion through the play-offs with a 2-0 win over Cambridge United at Wembley saw them gain promotion out of the Conference.
Since then they have cemented their place in the League and under manager Martin Ling will be looking to gain promotion to League One, but with some top notch sides coming up from the non league sphere, it will be a tough job for the former Leyton Orient boss.
They have always been a club that have prided themselves on finances and even with the breakdown of ITV Digital they managed to stay afloat comfortably and a few good cup runs have certainly aided they financial state.
Under Paul Buckle Torquay United blossommed, but after he left for Bristol Rovers, the Gulls' future is now in Ling's lap and as an emerging manager will be looking to build with the club and promotion will certainly be the key over the up-and-coming seasons for the West Country club.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Torquay United collect wins versus North Ferriby United, Dover Athletic and Braintree Town while suffering adverse results at Guiseley AFC, Boreham Wood, Gateshead, Aldershot Town and Lincoln City. Draws against Tranmere Rovers and Aldershot Town has seen them show mid-table form at best.
