Torquay are preparing for their first game under new management. The Gulls travel to Aldershot tomorrow without a win in their last 10 matches but player manager Kevin Nicholson says everyone's starting with a clean slate.
All the stuff that's gone on behind the scenes, all the stuff that's gone on on the pitch, it doesn't matter. It was nothing to do with me. The players were here but as far as I'm concerned, what they do from now on is all that matters.

Exeter's Geoff Parling has retained his place in the England side ahead of this weekend's must-win match against Australia.
The 31-year-old will start his third consecutive match in the second row, but his Chiefs teammate Henry Slade misses out again, with Sam Burgess being preferred on the bench for the match at Twickenham on Saturday.
A pigeon found covered in cooking oil has had a much needed bath at RSPCA West Hatch wildlife centre in Taunton.
The adult pigeon was found in Ilfracombe harbour in Devon with his feathers coated in vegetable oil - which can be very dangerous.
RSPCA veterinary nurse Natalie Stahl said: “Oil can be incredibly damaging to birds – affecting their plumage and their ability to stay warm and dry.".
Her team used normal washing-up liquid and warm water to help remove the sticky oil - thought it took a number of baths to clean the pigeon up and bring him back to full health.
"This poor pigeon has really been through the wars."
The centre is hoping to release him back into the wild in the coming weeks.

As we bathe in more sunshine, its no surprise that the Met Office have classed this month as sunnier but cooler than the average September. Also we've only had just over half of the expected rainfall.
Up to the 28th of this month, we've clocked up 137 hours of sunshine, thats 10% above the average. By the end of the day the total will be higher.
But being sunny doesn't necessarily mean warmer temperatures. The statistics show England was cooler - down 1.5C. Some cool nights and chilly mornings could be to blame.
As far as the glorious sunny weather goes, it will go after this coming weekend. Far more unsettled then with cloud and rain at times.
Our reporter Seth Conway is spending the day with Search and Rescue helicopters in Chivenor and has some breaking news.
The RAF Sea Kings from twenty two Squadron were due to stop running today but ITV has learned they'll continue to operate for another week before the service is handed over to a private company.
It's a slight reprieve but it's still a sad moment for the community.
More on ITV West Country tonight at 6pm.
Statement Chivenor will continue to provide full helicopter search and rescue capability for a further period of around one week at the request of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency who asked for this continuance.
The option to provide a continuance of service has been part of the UK SAR Transition Planning programme for all of the 6 RAF SAR flights in the UK and this request will neither affect the level of SAR service across the region served by Chivenor, nor in any impede the future careers of RAF personnel serving at Chivenor.
