Nicholson leaves Plainmoor

Torquay have announced that defender Kevin Nicholson will not be offered a new deal by the recently relegated side.

The 33-year-old has played over 300 times for the Gulls since moving to Plainmoor from Forest Green Rovers in 2007.

Boss Chris Hargreaves told the club's official website: "It was a really tough decision because I respect him as a person and a player.

"He has been a magnificent servant to this football club and a lot of people will be sorry to see Kev go.

"I just want to wish him all the best in his future."
