Torquay United have signed Tony Bedeau and Brian McGlinchey to new contracts.Torquay United have signed striker Tony Bedeau and midfielder Brian McGlinchey to new contracts at Plainmoor.
Both players have put pen-to-paper on deals that will keep him with The Gulls until the end of next season.
Bedeau is the club's longest-serving player, having made more than 200 league appearances for Torquay and scoring 48 league goals.
McGlinchey has proved to be a key member of Leroy Rosenior's squad after moving from Devon rivals Plymouth Argyle just over a year ago following a successful loan spell.
The news of the signings come as loanee Paul Robinson has extended his stay with the South Devon side for another four weeks from parent club Millwall.
Meanwhile, Gulls chairman Mike Bateson has announced that midfielder Jason Fowler has been forced to retire from football through injury.
The former Bristol City and Cardiff City player has failed to respond to treatment on a hip injury and looks to be in need of a hip replacement.
"Jason has spent many months training and playing in some considerable pain and this is not a situation I would wish on anybody," Bateson said in a statement on the club's official website.
"Leroy Rosenior regards him as a professional of the highest calibre and his presence around the club and on the pitch is greatly missed."
