AS AN ex-resident of Goodrington and occasional spectator at Plainmoor, it was a pleasure for me to watch the Gulls playing at Northampton recently.
When I sat down in the Visitors' stand next to a couple, I asked if they had travelled up with the supporters' club. No, said the lady, we've come from Sheffield to watch our son play – yes, they were Jordan Chapell's parents.
What a player the Gulls have signed - quick, energetic, an accurate passer of the ball and a good finisher.
Phew, I wept with joy with his mum and dad when he scored both our goals!
When I told our vocal supporters behind me, they also congratulated Jordan's parents. The atmosphere was wonderful.
The second-half reversal really was remarkable – the manager's dressing-room talk certainly worked.
Well done Alan Knill, we expect good things this season, and best wishes to the players, backroom team and the travelling supporters.
