Torquay have added 20 year old centre back Anthony O’Connor to our ranks for the next month.

The player joins us from Blackburn Rovers on an initial one month deal and he’s a Republic of Ireland U21 international and is apparently very highly rated at Ewood Park.

Last season he spent almost the entire campaign on loan at Burton Albion where he made almost 50 appearances for the club.

In out going news, winger Niall Thompson has joined Worcester City for a month to get some first team action after working his way into the fringe’s of Alan Knill’s first team recently.

He’s made three appearances from the bench already this campaign for Torquay.

Striker Ashley Yeoman has also left, but on a three month loan deal to AFC Bideford.

It’s expected this move will go through on Friday and will give the youngster a good run at first team level to prove himself as a goal scorer, and come back with some good form and confidence ready to really challenge in the first team.
