Defender David Woozley has left Crawley Town and quit full-time football to take up a job in the fire service.
Woozley was with Torquay for three seasons
Woozley, 27, had a spell as Crawley's joint caretaker boss last season, along with Ben Judge and coach John Yems.
But he has not featured in the first team since the arrival of new manager Steve Evans during the summer.
Woozley has since signed for Southern League Division One South & West side Farnborough FC - the club formed after Farnborough Town went out of business.
Woozley made a total of 196 League and Conference appearances, scoring nine goals.
He spent two years at Crawley, having previously played for Crystal Palace, Torquay and Oxford, and serving Bournemouth and Torquay on loan.
Meanwhile, boss Steve Evans praised goalkeeper Ashley Bayes after he helped 10-man Crawley win 1-0 at Aldershot on Monday.
"He has taken a few smashings from me at times and quite rightly," Evans said.
"But he was quite simply the man of the match by a country mile. He held every cross, had three or four ricochets in front of him and moved his feet well."
