Torquay United Football Club is pleased to confirm the signing of Ryan Dickson.

Dickson, 31, and a former Plymouth Argyle youth graduate, brings with him a wealth of experience playing for such clubs as Brentford and Southampton. He returns to Plainmoor after a very successful loan period at the Club in his early years of professional football.

“I think he’s a really big signing for us,” said TUFC head coach, Gary Owers. “He brings with him a terrific left foot.”

“Ryan is a very experienced player and is a left-footer which will be important in giving the team balance. He can play as a left-back, as a wide player, but I’m bringing him in to play as a central midfield player.

“He has played at a high level and has plenty of games under his belt. He played quite a few games for Yeovil last season and I’m bringing more experience into the side.

“He really strengthens what we have already got. I have badgered him the last couple of weeks and managed to persuade him to come and play for us. I think he’s looking forward to it.”

We’ll be bringing you an interview with our new signing soon.
