Evans was a hero at Plymouth
Torquay's former Plymouth and Bristol Rovers striker Mickey Evans has announced his retirement.

Evans, who had two spells with Plymouth and also played for Southampton and West Brom, turns 34 in January.

He told Torquay's website: "After a bereavement that changed my outlook on life, I decided that now was the best time to go.

"I will be looking out for Torquay and Plymouth's results because they were the two local clubs I played for."

Evans added: "I've decided to call it a day before I get to the stage when I'm just coming in to pick up my wages, which I've never been like as a player."
