It is another bumper collection from Inside the Gulls in week three of this fascinating series on Torquay United.
Subscribers have already been treated to nine superb chapters on the Gulls and the selection coming up this weekend reveals some more great stories and characters from the Plainmoor past.
We kick things off on Thursday with the Prince of Plainmoor, as the great Robin Stubbs recalls his journey from Birmingham City to become one of the greatest goalscorers in United history.
Stubbs was everything you could want from a quality striker, quick, powerful and an assured finisher.
Read the story in his own words from the Prince of Plainmoor.
We move back down the pitch but up the years for Friday's chapter, remembering the superb contribution of Angus MacDonald over three different spells. Gus was an outstanding defender and played with such immense courage that the Yellow Army fell in love. It was a courage he has since shown in his personal life, battling cancer to revive his career with Hull City.
The star of Saturday will be the Raging Bull Dave Caldwell, a played feared and admired by every opponent. Caldwell won the hearts of Plainmoor with his relentless approach in attack, battling many great defenders and receiving the 'occasional' red card for his troubles.
