Torquay re-sign Cherries starlet
Bournemouth youngster Frank Vincent has agreed to rejoin Torquay United on a season-long loan deal.
The former QPR academy player remains some way off staking a claim for a first-team place at the Vitality Stadium and has been allowed to return to the Gulls for the upcoming campaign after impressing for them in the second half of last season.
Vincent played 11 times for Torquay last term as he helped them win the National League South and will now hope to star in the National League.
Torquay boss Gary Johnson is delighted to have Vincent available to him once again.
"It's brilliant to have him back," he told the club's website. "He knows our philosophy, he was part of our DNA last season and he's a great kid and a great footballer."
Johnson says it's important clubs like Torquay build relationships with those higher in the football pyramid and it could open the door to other Cherries youngsters making the move to Plainmoor.
He added: "If we can help him in his development then we're very pleased to help out.
"Obviously they get feedback from us, but also they get feedback from the player on us, its a two-way thing. Obviously Frank has gone back and said he enjoyed it.
"We looked after him, he got his games, so it's nice because the more clubs you can get relationships with, the better. If they trust you to look after their young players then that's brilliant for us because they'll be happy in the future to give you more players."
