Steve Woods showed off the new home kit for next season which will be worn for the first time when Torquay take on Plymouth Argyle for Kevin Hills testimonial match on July 14th.
Colin Lee liked the look of the new strip and commented : '' Not having been involved in the choice of kit I do actually think the colour is much better and it's the sort of shirt the supporters will want to wear casually.
I think it is a good choice and not a design that's in your face or over the top.'' Steve Woods was impressed by the new strip and said :
'' I like the colour and it is an improvement on last seasons kit.''
The new strip will be available from the club shop week commencing the 9th July and you can pre-order kit from today by phone or in person. The new website should be launched next week and work on the on-line shop is also ongoing.
Torquay United Association Football Club, nicknamed the Gulls, is an English association football club based in the seaside resort town of Torquay, Devon. They will begin the 2007-08 season in the Conference National having lost their league status at the end of the 2006-2007 season.
Founded in 1899, they joined the Football League in 1927 and spent their entire time in the Football League in the lower divisions. The club plays in a distinctive yellow and navy strip .
Torquay's traditional rivals are fellow Devon clubs Plymouth Argyle and Exeter City. However the latter has always been the fiercer rivalry as Argyle have tended to be in a higher division throughout their history and so the two teams rarely meet.
There is also an element of Argyle fans who admit to a soft spot for the Gulls (much like the larger London teams are always happy for the likes of Barnet, who have never played in the top flight, to have a small degree of success).
