Torquay United manager Ian Atkins is hoping Ryan Clarke is the answer to his goalkeeping dilemma.
Clarke has linked up with The Gulls after being released by Bristol Rovers at the end of last season.
The 24-year-old previously worked with Atkins at The Memorial Stadium and is aiming to clinch a deal at Plainmoor.
Atkins' first impressions of the shot-stopper are positive and he is waiting to see how Clarke shapes up in training.
"I know Ryan from when I was at Rovers and in less than a year he has filled out and shot up," said Atkins.
"He's a big lad, young and keen."
