McGavin and Crowe Join Torquay
Thursday, 30th Jun 2022 20:23

Former Blues Brett McGavin and Dylan Crowe have joined National League Torquay United following their release by Town at the end of the season.

Bury St Edmunds-born midfielder McGavin spent the whole of 2021/22 on loan at King’s Lynn in the National League having had previous loan spells at Concord Rangers and Ayr United.

Academy product McGavin, the son of former Blues academy scout and ex-Colchester forward Steve, made 10 senior starts and one sub appearance for Town having spent 13 years at the club.

“I’m 22 now, so this is a chance to kick on,” McGavin told the Gulls’ official website. “I think it’s a great club that gives me the chance to do so.

“I think I’m well equipped now to do well for this team, in this league. I always want to get on the ball, I’ll always try to create a goal or score a goal.”

Right-back Crowe, 21, won England caps at U15, U16, U17 and U18 levels and was linked with clubs including Manchester United and Arsenal while with the Town academy.

He spent 11 years with the Blues but made only one EFL Trophy start for the first team, at Crawley in 2020/21. Last season he had a stint on loan at Leiston.

“I’m delighted to be here,” Crowe said. “I spoke to the gaffer [Gary Johnson], every player wants to get promoted at some point, and I feel that here is the right place to do it. It’s a great opportunity and I can’t wait to get going.”

I thought McGavin was as good as any midfielder we had.
Hope we don’t regret this one.

Eeyore. U having a laugh? He was ok, no more. Nowhere near the level we require. Doesn't the fact only a non league team has shown interest in him tell you the level he's at?

Good luck to you both 💙💙

Just watched a programme on Netflix called “losers” about Torquay United. Episode 2. Interesting stuff.

Good luck to both however it shows those on here who think every youth player should be in the first team that if you don’t kick on when given a chance you’ll be plying your trade further down the pyramid. So much was expected of these two and if they were any good would be in league two at least. Hope they go on and have a decent career.

Good luck to both of them.

Certainly a reality check for the expectations for players just because they have come through the academy.
Also crazy when you think all the teams that were supposedly after Crowe before.

I agree McGavin looked ok, and was certainly as good as the players around him, that said we need better than ok if we are going to get out of this Dividio!

Wish them both well!

All the best to both. Thought McGavin did ok for us considering he was a young centre mid thrown into a struggling team with a very poor manager at the time.

Best of luck

Like a lot of our over hyped and over rated youngsters National league standard soon to be joined by Dobra. Hope they all do well and get back into the EFL.

The very best wishes to both lads who seemed destined for better things that just didn't pan out. The right decision for them and the club at this moment in time I think. Hope they both flourish and get promoted with Torquay.

I hope that it works out for them and I wish them all the best, but it is more evidence of the poor quality of the squad that Paul Lambert found himself working with.
