Manager Gary Johnson described Torquay United’s 7-0 FA Cup hammering of Lymington Town as the perfect warm-up for a ‘six-pointer’ against National League South leaders Woking at Plainmoor next Saturday, report Devon Live.

The Gulls broke the club’s record Cup victory – they had beaten Northampton Town 7-1 in 1959 – by routing their Wessex League opponents in Johnson’s second match in charge.

“The FA Cup is very important to us, and we were professional in our preparation by travelling up the day before, but that is a starting-point for the Woking game next week.” said Johnson.

“We have to use that to the best of our advantage, because we have to get out of our league quickly.

“It doesn’t matter who you are playing – a team at their level, our level or some mannequins – you still have to put in the running and the effort to look good like we did today.

“I couldn’t pick a man of the match, because there were several. They all played a big part in our show.”
