Torquay United have secured strikers Brad Ash and Ben Seymour ahead of the new National League South season.

Seymour, 25, joins from Hampton and Richmond having also had a spell at Plymouth Parkway.

He came up through Exeter City's ranks and made 71 appearances for the EFL side before leaving two years ago.

Ash, 28, was Torquay's top scorer last season, finding the net 14 times in 42 starts.

He moved to Plainmoor 12 months ago having previously played for Weymouth, Chippenham Town and Weston-Super-Mare.

He is the first player from last season's squad who was out of contract to opt to stay at the club since Paul Wotton took over as Gulls boss under new owners last month.
