Gulls are on their way to Wembley: Tim "Zorro" Sills

Congratulations to everyone at Torquay United on winning through to the Play off Final against Cambridge United at Wembley on Sunday 17 May 2009.

Having finished 4th in the Blue Square Premier League, the Gulls faced Histon in the two-legged semi final. Torquay United won the home leg 2-0 with goals from Nicky Wroe and Tim "Zorro" Sills and travelled to Histon for the away match. Despite being put under considerable pressure, the Gulls defence stood resolute and although they lost 1-0 on the day, the Gulls won 2-1 on aggregate to earn their deserved appearance in the Play-off Final.
The spirit and commitment evident within the team was personified by Tim Sills, who lead the attack in both matches wearing a plastic mask to protect a cheekbone that had been fractured in three places ! Tim will now have an operation to repair the damaged cheekbone, but is still anticipated to be available for the Wembley final.
