Gulls pair net March gongs
Torquay manager Martin Ling has been named npower League Two manager of the month for March, while captain Lee Mansell has been named as player of the month.
Ling guided his side to six wins and a draw during March as the Gulls consolidated their spot in the automatic promotion places.
Mansell scored four goals during an exceptional month for the Devon outfit and Ling was delighted both for the club and his skipper.
"Lee is the heartbeat of our team," Ling said. "He's someone we all look up to and latch on to. He has been an inspirational leader and fully deserves the npower Player of the Month award. His goal return has been absolutely brilliant."
Former West Ham and Charlton boss Alan Curbishley, who heads the judging panel for the manager of the month award, said of Ling: "Martin has overseen another incredible month for Torquay, taking 19 invaluable points. They have now secured a top three spot and look strong candidates for promotion."
