It’s not too often that an official club website will take the piss out of themselves, so for that alone, Torquay United we salute you.
Ordinarily the signing of 23 year-old central defender Krystian Perace on a two-year deal wouldn’t have raised too many eyebrows, but the way the signing was announced on the club website shows a great sense of humour.
The former England Youths international has signed from Notts County after a loan spell at Barnet last year, but it seems like this move had been on the cards for a while. So much so, that the site decided to pre-empt some possible grievances from supporters about the “typical” delay in official confirmation of the new signing.
You can see the quotes attributed to Pearce here if you so wish and it goes without saying he is delighted to have signed for Torquay.
Again, a great sense of humour from the club, we think Soccer AM’s Helen Chamberlain would be very proud.
