Joe looks at players who could be headed to Plainmoor this summer

Midfield/Wingers

A couple of wingers will definitely be on Gary’s list as well as a possible replacement for Adam Randell, especially with CLE moving to more of a number 10 role. 

Tom Whelan – Chesterfield 

The goal-scoring centre midfielder has found himself suddenly out of favour with Spireites manager James Rowe, and having played the majority of his football in the South West, could be tempted down to the English Riviera! Whelan signed for Chesterfield for an undisclosed fee last season after impressing at Weymouth and finished the season with 8 goals in 22 starts. Having found himself out of the side towards the end of the season, Chesterfield manager has hinted he may be surplus to requirements and could fill the void left by Adam Randell.

POSITION: Midfielder

DATE OF BIRTH: 5th April 1996 – 25 years-old

HEIGHT: 1.72m

FORMER CLUBS: Salisbury, Yeovil, Chippenham, Weymouth

LEAGUE STATS 20-21: Played 34, Goals 8, Bookings 3, Red Cards 1


Ryan Glover – AFC Bournemouth u23s 

Continuing our good relationship with Bournemouth u23s could be another option as we look to bolster our winger options. The 20-year-old right winger came through the youth set up at Bournemouth with Sam Sherring, Ben Whitfield and Frank Vincent and more recently helped their u23s win two cup finals last season. He’s now looking to head out on loan and Torquay could be the Cherries’ preferred destination after the recent successful loan spells for Sherring & Vincent.

Scott Wagstaff – Unattached

Released by Forest Green this summer, the 31-year-old winger has played his entire career in the Football League & certainly has a decent CV. His experience and versatility could be vital in another promotion push, as he has doubled up as a wing back in the past so could deputise for Wynts at full back on the odd occasion. He’s also partial to a yellow and blue beard!

Strikers 

A striker or two will definitely be heading in to rotate or play alongside Danny Wright. A possible option may only be down the road… 

Klaidi Lolos – Unattached

Possibly not a permanent signing straight away but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Lolos turning up at Seale Hayne as a trialist in a couple weeks. Released by Argyle this summer, Ryan Lowe admitted the decision could come back to haunt him, stating that he was releasing him so he could go out and get games and would be more than adequate for a League Two or National League side. Torquay fans may remember him from 2019 pre-season (That Armani Little free kick!) when Lolos looked the pick of the Argyle players. Since then he’s had a couple of loan moves curtailed by Covid and 8 sub appearances for Argyle. At 6ft2 he can hold his own, and can play the number nine, or number ten role, as well as being used on occasion on the wing. 

Or up the road…

Nicky Ajose – Unattached

Forced to train with the kids for the last 6 months of his Exeter career it’s safe to say it didn’t work out for Nicky at St James Park. Up until his time at City Nicky was seen as one of the most lethal strikers at lower league level, and possibly a step down into the National league may be what he needs right now!
