THE IAN TWITCHIN TROPHY PRESENTATION
The inaugural Ian Twitchin Trophy presentation, proudly sponsored by Torquay United Supporters’ Trust (TUST) will take place on Sunday 8 September 2019 in Boots & Laces, Plainmoor between 12 noon and 2.00pm.
This is a joint initiative between TUST, Laura Twitchin, Ian’s daughter and the Twitchin family to honour the memory of a Torquay United legend; a player who holds the record of pulling on a Torquay United shirt the most times in his one club career between 1969 and 1980.
Fittingly, the Trophy will be awarded annually to the player who makes the most first team appearances each season - and for the 2018-2019 season the first winner is Liam Davis who started all 48 of United’s league and cup matches.
TUST Supporter Liaison Officer Nick Brodrick said,” We are very grateful to the Club for allowing us to use Boots & Laces for this special occasion.
Liam is hoping to persuade some of his fellow players to join him and all Gulls’ supporters, whether TUST members or non-members, are all welcome and encouraged to join us in Boots & Laces.
There will be a free light buffet and a welcoming drink available for those attending.
TUST hopes there will be a good turn-out to not only see the Trophy awarded but also a chance to show our appreciation to the late Ian Twitchin, a loyal one club professional.”
