Former Torquay United favourites Jackie Gallagher (1982-83), Dave Rudge (1975-77) and John Turner (1978-84) bumped into each other at Plainmoor last Saturday and shared plenty of reminiscences before and after the 2-0 win over King's Lynn Town.

King's Lynn are centre-forward Gallagher's 'home' club these days, so he flew down from Norwich to Devon to take in both his former sides, Torquay--based Rudge has been a regular Gulls supporter for many years and goalkeeper and former South Devon landlord Turner is now match day bars manager at Plainmoor.
