New Torquay United manager Gary Johnson says he is working on the Gulls’ players’ mental fitness more than their physical condition during the opening stages of his tenure at Plainmoor, report Devon Live.

Johnson was pleased with his squad’s strength and stamina during Saturday’s 2-0 National League South win at Hungerford Town, his first match after taking over from Gary Owers. Now, into his second week in charge, he says: “Every day we are doing sessions which show me a bit more about every player in the group.

“I call it having ‘team-mates you can rely on’.”
