Legends of the Buckle era

Joseph Bulmer

An online evening of nostalgia centred on Torquay United's four eventful years (2007-2011) under Paul Buckle will be joined by the manager himself.

Friday night's Legends of the Buckle Era, organised by a group of supporters and hosted by longtime Gulls fan Helen Chamberlain, had already signed up players Tim Sills, Lee Mansell, Kevin Nicholson, Wayne Carlisle and Martin Gritton, plus ex-chairman Alex Rowe.

But now the line-up has been swelled by Buckle, who will join the Microsoft Teams evening from his home in the USA.

The Q&A event, raising money for Rescuemania, Parkinson's UK, Above Water and Torbay Hospital's Children's Ward, starts at 7pm on Friday (Apr 9), and costs £10 to join via Eventbrite/Legends Of The Buckle Era.

One of the organisers, Steve Dixon, says: "We've got a nice amount of fans signed up, but it's increasing all the time now."
