Truro City keeper Martin Rice has rejoined former Club Torquay United where he will act as number two behind recent signing Bobby Olejink.
The news was announced by the League 2 club this evening and means that City will need a new keeper before the start of their first Blue Square Bet South campaign, as they only have youngster Tom Brooks, who played a handful of games last season after Rice lost his place in the starting line-up.
Former QPR and Plymouth Argyle keeper Tim Sandercombe though has been on trial with City, who tomorrow take on Yeovil Town in a friendly at Treyew Road (3pm).
After regaining his place in the side Rice (25) was a key member of the Truro team that won last season’s Southern Legaue premier division title
He joined Truro in 2009 on loan before signing on a full time basis.
Torquay boss Martin Ling said; "I heard about Martin having an agreement with Truro that if a League club came in for him, he was allowed to leave. I felt it was an opportunity we couldn’t miss because he’s got experience, he’s local, done the job before and fits the remit of a second-choice goalkeeper."
Rice started his career at Exeter, where he played 59 games, before joining Torquay in 2007 but dropped into the non-league two years later having featured 14 times.
