Young Gulls offered deals

Torquay have offered professional contracts to two youngsters Mickey Parcell and Sam Chaney.

Parcell and Chaney have just completed their two-year scholarship programme at Plainmoor and will join up with the Gulls squad as they plot an immediate return to the Football League.

"I'm delighted for both Sam and Mickey, who's been our club captain," United head of youth Geoff Harrop told the club's official website.

"They have been excellent youth trainees, not only in their work ethic but also as people. We believe they have the talent and potential to become successful pro footballers."
