New Torquay United chairman Chris Roberts is in talks to move the club from Plainmoor to a new stadium at the Recreation Ground on Torquay seafront.
The move would involve relocating Torquay Athletic rugby club and Torquay cricket club, who are both based there.

"We're aiming to create a 21st century facility at the Rec," Roberts told the Gulls' website.

He added: "It's about what's best for the Bay as a whole. We must maximise the site's potential."

Roberts headed a consortium which bought the League Two club from previous owner Mike Bateson last month.

Torbay's mayor Nick Bye added: "He seems very enthusiastic, but we need to know more detail."
