The GWSC has received the following message Torquay United Supporters

The GWSC has received the following message from a number of Torquay United supporters who would like to share this message with Yeovil Town supporters:

Dear Yeovil Town FC and all their supporters.

I almost don’t know where to start but I shall try. What I can tell you is that I write to you in genuine and profuse apology.
I can't say that I speak on behalf of the Torquay United supporter base, as I haven’t had time to consult them widely, but I am confident that 99.9 per cent of all Torquay supporters will agree with the main sentiment of this missive.
Collectively we are incredulous at the decision of some ‘people - and I use the word people in the widest sense of the word - to chant the most abhorrent, disgusting, disrespectful and utterly unacceptable chant I’ve ever heard in my 36+ years of standing on the Pop Side.
I won’t give it a crumb of dignity by repeating any part of it here, but suffice to say that it was aimed at ridiculing your former captain Lee Collins and his tragic suicide.
I have always been very proud of the Torquay United fans and the fact that they are an extremely friendly and welcoming bunch. Sadly on this occasion the levels of bonhomie were massively diluted by the actions of a few who I can assure you DO NOT represent the wider Torquay United supporter base.
I sincerely hope that you can see the genuine nature of the apology which I extend to you all.
In the spirit of football I hope that you will refuse to tar all Torquay united supporters with the same same brush which was wielded with such hatred by the few.
