Torquay take Jerel Ifil, George Artemi and Carl Baker on trial

Jerel Ifil

Torquay United have taken defenders Jerel Ifil and George Artemi, as well as midfielder Carl Baker, on trial.

Ifil, 30, spent last season at Kettering, before leaving by mutual consent at the end of the campaign.

Former Southend youth player Artemi, 19, spent last season on loan from the Shrimpers at Isthmian League Division One North Great Wakering Rovers.

And Baker, 29, played 27 times for Coventry City as they were relegated to League One last season.

All three appeared in Friday's 5-0 pre-season friendly victory over Bideford, and afterwards manager Martin Ling praised the trio saying: "The three trialists all did the job required.

"Jerel played the full 90 minutes because he's not had a lot of football recently and the other two played 45 minutes each.

"They were all part of a good team unit on the night."
