Torquay United Football Club is pleased to announce that Premier League side Cardiff City are coming to Plainmoor for a pre-season friendly.

Former Torquay United manager Neil Warnock will be bringing his 1st team to Plainmoor on Friday, July 20 (kick-off 7pm). The Bluebirds had a tremendous 2017/18 campaign as they clinched automatic promotion to the Premier League.

“We’re very pleased to be hosting a friendly against a Premier League team,” said TUFC head coach, Gary Owers.

Cardiff City striker Rhys Healey enjoyed a successful loan spell at United last season scoring 6 goals from 8 appearances.

“It should be a special evening and we’re thankful to Neil Warnock, especially, for agreeing to bring his side,” added Owers. “I’ve spoken to Neil a couple of times and he helped us out by loaning us Rhys [last season]. He came back to us and offered us the game which we’re obviously very pleased about. It’s going to be excellent for everyone.”

Torquay United general manager Geoff Harrop knows that this is the type of game that the Yellow Army wants to see at Plainmoor.

“This is a fantastic pre-season game that the fans will be pleased with,” said Geoff. “It is shaping up to be a great pre-season campaign with more fixtures to be announced.

“A big thankyou to Cardiff City for supporting us in this way.”

Pre-season entry prices will be announced in due course.
