Five things to come out of Torquay United's 4-2 Play-Off win over Notts County:
1. THE DANNY WRIGHT EFFECT
After two months out with his second hamstring injury, Wright returned to score his 11th and 12th goals of the season.
In League/Play-Off games this season, United's record WITH Wright - W16 D2 L2/WITHOUT Wright - W8 D9 L6. Enough said.
2. AGE IS JUST A NUMBER
The Gulls' goalscorers against Notts County were Danny Wright (36), Asa Hall (34) and Dean Moxey (35); combined ages - 105!
3. TACTICAL KNOW-HOW
- 1 It's taken a generation but it is definitely now Paignton's turn
- 2 Jim Parker: Now is the Time for action after Chief Constable's revealing walkabout
- 3 Pre-season fundraiser in memory of footballers Kyle and Hayden

Gary Johnson's plan, including 'defender' Kyle Cameron playing in front of left-back Dean Moxey, worked well for a long time. But when United's bench spotted that Danny Wright and Connor Lemonheigh-Evans were covering unsustainable acres up front, they pushed Adam Randell forward on the right and Cameron on the left, countering the threat of County wingers Dion Kelly-Evans and Calvin Miller. That worked too.
4. GREAT TO SEE YOU, LIAM
All United's squad, fit and otherwise, went to all four sides of Plainmoor to acknowledge the fans after the final whistle. Among them was much-missed left-back Liam Davis, still on the comeback trail after 18 months out with an ankle reconstruction.
5. SOME WALLIES NEVER GO AWAY
After everything everyone has been through, with all the restrictions that continue to frustrate our lives, whoever threw that smoke-flare onto the pitch from Plainmoor's Away End needs family to sort him (presumably) out - and quick!
