See the informal, rambling club website announcement as Torquay sign Krystian Pearce.
Torquay United poked fun at the traditional fan gripe with official club websites – that they are always the last to confirm transfer news.
After being released by Notts County at the end of last season, 23-year-old central defender Pearce has now signed a two-year deal with The Gulls.
Under a sub-header of “Don’t Panic”, the club wrote the following about the big, former Birmingham City youngster:
OFFICIAL site always gets there last…I get my info from the fans’ forum or Bob in the pub….grumble, groan and moan.
Hang on a minute, briefly forgot where I was.
We can now confirm that defender Krystian Pearce has passed his medical and signed all the paperwork on a two-year deal with the Gulls.
We know this has been reported elsewhere this morning but within the club, we are reluctant to speculate on transfer dealings until everything is confirmed. Now we can climb out of this pond of self-pity, the important thing is that Krystian is fully signed up to the United cause and ready for action.
