ON THIS DAY

GULLS MEMORIES FROM THIS DAY IN TIME

1985 – A DEBUT FOR LORAM

Mark Loram makes his debut, away at Port Vale in 1985. The Division Four match finished 2-2. Loram’s talent soon caught the eye of QPR who signed him in May 1986, but having failed to settle in London the winger came back to Plainmoor in 1987. He went onto play well over 300 games for United, featuring in the Gulls exciting Sherpa Van Trophy and Play-Off finals at Wembley. One of the most skilful players to ever represent Torquay.

2021 – TORQUAY UNITED 0-0 SUTTON UNITED

Torquay maintained their advantage at the top of the National League, despite playing 34 minutes with 10 men in a 0-0 draw against promotion rivals Sutton.

Ben Whitfield sent an early chance over for the hosts, while at the other end David Ajiboye was denied by Shaun MacDonald.

Omar Bugiel headed over from Ajiboye’s cross just before half-time, and MacDonald had to be alert again to save Harry Beautyman’s effort after the break.

Torquay were reduced to 10 men after 56 minutes when veteran Dean Moxey was shown a second yellow card but Rob Milsom fired over as the visitors failed to make their numerical advantage tell.

TUFC: 1. Shaun MacDonald, 4. Kyle Cameron (c), 7. Connor Lemonheigh-Evans, 10. Armani Little (11. Jake Andrews,  73′), 12. Adam Randell, 16. Sam Sherring, 21. Dean Moxey, 23. Aaron Nemane, 31. Joe Lewis, 34. Ben Whitfield, 35. Josh Umerah (24. Rob Street, HT).
