Atkins rejects new Torquay role
Ian Atkins
Atkins has been linked with the vacant job at Brentford
Former Torquay United boss Ian Atkins has left the club after turning down the chance to be director of football at Plainmoor.

Atkins, 49, was manager of the Gulls from 13 April until 27 November when he was replaced by Lubos Kubik.

He was offered the new job by Torquay chairman Chris Roberts but told the Herald Express: "The job is not for me in the present situation at the club.

"I wish the club, the players and the supporters all the best."

Atkins, who helped guide the Gulls to safety at the bottom of League Two last season, has been linked with the vacant manager's post at League One side Brentford.

He added: "When we stayed up last year, it was mission accomplished part one.

"And I do honestly believe that we were just starting to see the growth of possibly another fine Torquay team, which would be part two."
