Torquay manager Paul Buckle has signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract.
Buckle hopes to guide Torquay back into the League
Buckle, who was a Torquay player between 1994 and 1996, took over as manager at Plainmoor following the sacking of Leroy Rosenior last June.
This season he has guided his team to second place in the Blue Square Premier and hopes are high of a return to the Football League.
Torquay are currently four points behind table toppers Aldershot but have a game in hand.
