Midfielder Asa Hall says that Torquay United’s new-look squad must grasp the challenge of being the team that everyone wants to beat this season, report Devon Live.
The 31-year-old Birmingham-born player, one of head coach Gary Owers’ key summer signings, has thrown himself into relegated United’s ‘Revival Mission’ after a career with his hometown Blues, Luton Town, Oxford United, Shrewsbury Town, Cheltenham Town and Barrow.
He has known plenty of success, helping Cheltenham to lift the ‘Conference’ championship in 2016 among others, and few failures.
Now he is intent on helping the Gulls to win promotion from the National League South and he says: “Everyone at this level wants to be at a club like Torquay – I’ve been really impressed with how professionally the club is run and how much into football everyone around the place is.

“We have got to grab that idea by the horns.”
