Torquay United hand trialist Karl Baker a contract

Torquay United have signed Karl Baker, who was previously a youth player at the club, on a short-term deal after his trial with the Gulls.

The 22-year-old winger, who is from Torquay, left the club when the youth scheme closed eight years ago.

Gulls boss Martin Ling told the club website: "He's definitely got something, I want to give him the chance to see what he can do.

"He has a wonderful left foot and the ability to deliver dangerous crosses."
