JAMIE ROBBA who has kept goal for the Gibraltar national team on seven occasions is to be given a trial by Torquay United the former Football League club which was relegated to the National League in 2014 and is currently the centre of takeover talks.
The 24-year-old has played in minor Spanish leagues, for a French side US Le Pontet and Lynx FC in Gibraltar.
Robba played for the Gulls – as Torquay are nicknamed – in their pre-season match at Southern League side Tiverton Town on Tuesday July 19 which was a 1:1 draw.
Speaking to BBC Radio Devon manager Kevin Nicholson said “He was one that Robbie Herrera (Torquay’s assistant manager) found. He’s the Gibraltar number two international goalkeeper, so we’ll have a look at him and see.”
With just one goalkeeper on their books and another on trial, it may well be that the Gibraltarian may find a new home playing for the team that Helen Chamberlain long serving presenter of Sky’s Soccer AM is so enamoured of that she has the club crest tattooed on her upper left buttock.
