Torquay United fanatic Glen McNaughton was delighted to see the Torbay Weekly on sale in Newton Abbot last week.

Glen, who is a massive fan of Dave Thomas's column and whose ambition is to work with Dave in the Plainmoor Press Box, was quick to pull his Dad over to the newsstand in the Sainsburys superstore at Penn Inn on Friday when he saw the paper on sale for the first time.

Glen can be regularly heard in the Plainmoor stands talking about every goal that is scored in every league from the Premiership down to the South Devon League.

The Torbay Weekly is now a year old and, in line with our launch plans, has changed its distribution set up to make sure we can provide bigger and even better newspapers for our readers and advertisers.

We are still delivering free copies to 18,000 specially selected homes in Torbay. Another 8,000 copies will be available at shops and other pick-up points but with a £1 cover price for the first time.

We will be donating 20p from every £1 sale to our Raise for Rowcroft campaign where we are hoping to raise £50,000 in the next year for the South Devon hospice.

Not only that -  the Torbay Weekly will now be available at more than 120 outlets not just in Torbay but right across Teignbridge, the South Hams and South Devon.  And that will include  being on the shelves of all our leading superstores and supermarkets for the first time.

So now Glen he can read Dave Thomas every week and Dad Chris says: "I am sure I will have to stop at Sainsbury's on the way home from work every week from now on . Glen loves to read about the Gulls. It is great that I can donate to Rowcroft too by buying the newspaper."

Let's hope the team can recover from the recent disappointing results and Glen can be back in Plainmoor soon cheering the Gulls to promotion.
