Thea Bristow has officially handed over ownership of Torquay United after transferring 80% of her shares over to a group of existing directors.

Today is a bitter sweet day for me. I have transferred the majority of my shares and it has closed the chapter of my ownership of the club. I certainly have had mixed emotions throughout this whole process, but know that it is the right decision for me and my family.

I look back and hopefully Paul and I made a bit of a difference. There have been some great times and some not so great times, but overall, whatever decisions we made, they were always in the best interests of the club.

One thing I do know is that whenever I come to the ground, I am always so proud of seeing Bristow’s Bench and the lasting legacy to both Paul and the club.

I, like any fan, can’t wait to see us back in the Football League and look forward to cheering the team onto that.

I wish the Directors in luck taking on this challenge. For me, knowing I had to move on, this route has given me the chance to pass my shares onto people who know and care for the club, especially in time for any Conference deadlines.

The Directors have assured me that they will continue speaking to the TUST and other consortiums for further investment or help, plus that they have the capability to run the club next season. I am sure they will announce their plans more formally over the coming weeks.

I look forward to watching and supporting as a fan and thank you for all the support and kind wishes during my time as Chairman.

– Thea Bristow

Huge sharks spotted off the coast of Cornwall

Huge 9ft sharks have been spotted by fishermen off the coast of Cornwall.

But swimmers can rest assured that porbeagle sharks are far less dangerous than great whites.

The porbeagle sharks seen swimming near Boscastle should be “handled with care” because of their large and powerful jaws but rarely attack humans, according to the Shark Trust.

Mark Nelson was four miles from the port when he caught one of the giant fish earlier this month.

The 400lb shark was too large to get into his boat and after battling for an hour-and-a-half, Mr Nelson let it swim away.

Along with blue sharks, porbeagles are the most common species of shark in UK waters.
