Kyle Cameron's farewell to Torquay United

Joseph Bulmer

Defender Kyle Cameron has become the second Torquay United player to leave in the wake of the Gulls' National League Play-Off penalty loss to Hartlepool United - he has joined Notts County, the team that United beat in the PO Semi-Finals.

Brazilian goalkeeper Lucas Covolan signed for League Two club Port Vale earlier this week.

Now Cameron, the former Newcastle United starlet and Scotland Under-21 cap, has signed a two-year deal with Notts after turning down a new deal at Plainmoor.

Signed by ex-United manager Gary Owers in 2018, Cameron made 112 appearances in all competitions and scored seven goals in a variety of defensive positions and, finally, on the left of midfield.

In a farewell message to Torquay fans, the 24-year-old Geordie 'tweeted': "I came a boy and I have left a man - forever grateful, thank you.

"I am getting emotional as I write this, but it's time for me to leave and open the next chapter of my career.

"The three years I have spent here have been the best years of my football career to date.

"I will always love this club with my whole heart.

"To the fans - thank you very much for your support throughout my time here.

"I really wish Sunday could have gone differently, and we could have got TUFC back in the Football League, but it just wasn't meant to be.

"To all the staff and players I have worked with in my time here, you have all left a lasting impression on me one way or another, and I wish you all the very best for your careers.

"Thank-you.  Goodbye, Yellow Army."
