Torquay in Administration Empty
PostSubject: Torquay in Administration   Torquay in Administration EmptyThu Feb 22, 2024 6:22 pm

Torquay united have gone into administration and look likely to have points deducted and face relegation into the same league as parkway and truro as a result. Their chairman and Gary Johnson have quit tonight. Hopefully they find an owner who can stabilise the club and start the process of getting them back into the football league one day as a result. Not a good time for their fans.

Club Statement

from the link wrote:
Clarke Osborne has today issued the following statement regarding TUAFC:
“It is with sincere regret that I advise that circumstances beyond my control during the last five weeks have brought me to the position that I am unable to continue financial support for the Club and I have today filed on behalf of the Directors, an intention to appoint an administrator to the Club and Company.

The prospect of creating a new stadium and commercial facility was the driver for the investment, the excitement to deliver something truly transformative for the Club and Torbay.

I would reiterate what I have said many times, that Torquay United is blessed with fantastic, passionate support and I am sorry that we have not been able to reach our goal for the Club and fans, despite significant effort and investment.

I would like to pay a personal tribute to both George Edwards and Mel Hayman who have worked tirelessly for this Club, voluntarily. Their selfless time commitment, and passion for the Club has been limitless despite some very difficult headwinds.

I also pay tribute to the entire Torquay United family, the Team both on and off the field of play, for their hard work, commitment and in some instances on a voluntary basis.

The financing of football in this country is precarious and can only thrive in the lower divisions where there is either a close collaborative relationship with the local authority, it is a trophy asset or is backed by substantial local individuals and businesses. I believe that it needs a fundamental overhaul of its financing structure, rights distribution in the lower leagues and recognition that many clubs represent a fundamental part of the local community and its visitor attractions. Ambitious Clubs should in my opinion be given special status in their push to bring in investment, develop facilities, bring spend and employment to the local economy.

I have today stepped down as Chairman of the Board.

Now is the time for the Club, supporters, Torbay community and the Local Authority to come together and continue on the path to the future. I will assist a change of ownership where and when invited. The detailed plans, proposals and related data for the proposed developments will be gifted to the Club as will any time requested to assist in the future planning and development.”

Any parties who would like to express their interest, are requested to email (removed)

Sad news. Got a couple of golfing mates who are Torquay fans and the motives of Osborne have never been clear, believe he was involved in some dubious activity at Swindon a few years ago. Hope in the end this proves to be a turning point for them but a very dodgy and uncertain situation.

Flash of inspiration-how about Jimmer Brent as their saviour? Nice piece of real estate to add to his Torbay portfolio...

i think if it came down to it torquay fans would rather start their own club up rather than let the reluctant one takeover and do nothing while he pipe dreams again. Has he even started redeveloping the hotel in exeter yet?

I'm sure he'll be sniffing around if there's a pound of flesh to be had, players could train at oldway mansion.

During my time on Exeweb I thoroughly enjoyed my time jousting with Southampton Dull, I mean Gull. In truth, like most down our way I always had a lot of time for the Turks and hope things turn out well for them.
