The rollercoaster ride of a season to remember...
IT MAY ULTIMATELY have ended in play-off disappointment, but Torquay United's 2011-2012 season will still go down as one of the most remarkable in the club's history.

But United fans had no great expectations, and several had misgivings, about a fixture list that threw up a trip to Buckle's revamped Rovers on the second Saturday of the season.
Little did any of us know what an extraordinary ride was about to begin...
