Gilligan scored 11 goals for Northampton last season

Torquay United have signed midfielder Ryan Gilligan on a one-month loan from Northampton Town.

The 24-year-old has made 25 appearances for the Cobblers this season, scoring one goal.

Torquay boss Paul Buckle told BBC Devon: "We've looked at Ryan for a while and we have a view of keeping him until the end of the season.

"He's a goalscorer, he can play in space, he can play in the midfield, so he's a attacking option. "

Gilligan started his career as a trainee at Watford before moving to Northampton in 2005.

During his time at Sixfields, Gilligan has made 129 starts, with 49 appearances from the bench.
