Blue Square Premier leaders Stevenage have snapped up Torquay United striker Tim Sills for an undisclosed fee on an 18-month contract.The 30-year-old, who moved to Plainmoor in June 2007, scored 41 goals during his time on the South coast. [LNB]Sills was a key member of Torquay's promotion winning side last season, scoring the second goal in their play-off final win over Cambridge in May. [LNB]In League Two this term, Sills has only netted twice in 18 appearances. [LNB]Stevenage boss Graham Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio: "He gives us something a little bit different in attacking areas. [LNB]"We now have a little bit more strength in forward area's and I hope that strength will pay dividends. [LNB]"He knows the level very well, is an experienced and respected campaigner at the level," Westley added [LNB]"There has been once or twice this season, we are where we are this season because of the efforts of the lads in the squad and they have done a fantastic job, when we have failed to break open defences and we have really needed that extra dimension. [LNB]"I think Sills gives us that different dimension, so where we struggled to break open AFC Wimbledon we now have a little bit more strength." [LNB]Sills started his career with non-league Camberley Town in 1998, and has also played for Oxford and Hereford.
