Lewis de­nies Gulls links FOOT­BALL

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

HAYES & Yead­ing as­sis­tant man­ager Tris­tan Lewis has rub­bished re­ports link­ing him with a takeover of Torquay United.

Lewis (pic­tured) was a guest in the direc­tors’ box last week as the Gulls were beaten 2-1 at Al­trin­cham and was in Devon for a meet­ing at the club on Wed­nes­day.

Torquay chair­woman Thea Bris­tow led the pro­ceed­ings and for­mer Ox­ford chief Kelvin Thomas has been brought in to over­see a new di­rec­tion for the Plain­moor out­fit.

How­ever, Lewis is only play­ing a mi­nor role in the changes to be made by the Gulls and is not on the brink of mak­ing a fi­nan­cial in­vest­ment into the Con­fer­ence Premier side.

“I was asked to come in and look at the ed­u­ca­tion and academy struc­ture over a three-week pe­riod,” he said.

“The peo­ple who are do­ing the ed­u­ca­tional stuff are the same peo­ple who do that at Hayes & Yead­ing so peo­ple have con­nected that and got it wrong.”
