Former Yeovil Town defender Jakub Sokolik has found himself a new club, following his release by League One side Plymouth Argyle. The 24 year old has signed for National League side Torquay United until the end of the 2017-18 season, having agreed to leave Home Park by mutual consent on January 31st, to ensure he didn't get constrained by the transfer window rules.
He's signed for a club in a spot of bother, with the Gulls currently in the National League relegation zone, in 22nd place and five points away from safety with just thirteen games remaining. Head Coach Gary Owers said that his priority had been to deal with an injury at Plainmoor that had left a gap in defence:
"We've taken the opportunity to add to the squad and make sure that we’re as strong as possible going into the later stages of the season. With Josh Gowling out we're a centre-half down and Jakub being a free agent and based just along the road in Plymouth, I thought it was a good match. I spoke to him and I'm pleased that he is here. The last couple of signings do have more experience and that is only going to add to what we are trying to do."
At present Torquay are waiting for the paperwork to clear. Sokolik had been a regular in Argyle's League Two line-up as they closed in on promotion. But this season has seen his appearances highly limited, making just five appearances, with only two of those being in the league. Overall he made 23 appearances for Plymouth across his twelve months at Home Park.
