Gritton raring to go

New Torquay recruit Martin Gritton is anxious for the season to get started as he begins his second spell with the club. The 32-year-old Scottish-born forward, who spent two years at Plainmoor from 2002, scoring 23 goals in 93 league appearances, rejoined the Gulls from Chesterfield on a six-month loan deal last week. Gritton says he is delighted to be back and is hoping that he can help Paul Buckle's inexperienced side, who start the new League Two season with a home match against Northampton on Saturday, enjoy a successful 2010/11 campaign. He told the Cornish Guardian: "It's great to be back. It's been a good pre-season and I was glad to get down when I did. I've got some games under my belt, the fitness up, and now I'm looking forward to Saturday. "There are a lot of good, young players here and it is nice to be part of it. You know, as your career goes on, you want to remember some successes and I would like to be part of another success down here because the first one was really special - so I would enjoy that. "I think it will be a great chance for Torquay (this season) and especially for the young lads who have not played a lot of games, because sometimes not being seasoned in the league can have its benefits. They don't need to know the ins and outs of it all, they can just go out there and play, which is a great thing and is something the manager encourages. Hopefully we can put together a winning run."
