Sorry that it had to end although it foes seem to have been inevitable. Another link to the Conference days is gone.

Top guy and fantastic with the kids.

All the best for the future Sergio.

Sergio Torres is one of the true greats of this football club, a player we will truly remember forever. He is a player that he has a real story to tell too.

The enthusiasm and commitment that he plays with and the fact he's a genuinely nice guy will mean he will be welcome to the club and the town for whenever he wants to pop in.

I think he can still do a job in League One but if he decides to drop a division then he would be first pick for any team that wants a real go at promotion.

All the best, Sergio, you will be truly missed.

Torres says he's shocked that he and the 10 others weren't offered new deals.
Also fears he might have to find a job away from football to pay the bills if no club comes in.

If he's shocked that after two seasons of playing barely any football, only being called upon when the squad is under strict rotation then Sergio must have misread all the sins that were coming, despite what JG may have told them in team meetings. It's naive at best.

If he has to get a job away from football then that to says an awful lot about the comfort zone he'd got into at the club. Nice moeny, loved by the fans but no long term strategy for when it was all going to end/change course. And of course says an awful lot about his lack of confidence that other clubs would fancy him as a player - and yet he turned down loan moves earlier in the year - those clubs are probaby recruiting. Go and talk to them

All he said was if a club doesn't offer him a deal then he will just find another job to pay the bills. I think you are reading way to much into that, considering he said he would relocate his family to continue playing football.

I don't think he has a lack of confidence, more he is just humble, for which he has been since he joined the club.

He'd be welcomed back at Wycombe with open arms. Bully, too...

Interesting that these other players weren't offered new deals at all, even on reduced terms. Sounds like Gregory has chosen to get rid of most of the squad. Hope this doesn't backfire if we struggle to sign players. I'd expect to see a few signings early on, or a number of trialists, to fill out the squad for training.

Bully is held in very high regard by the Crawley a Town fans & no doubt many would fight to keep him here if they had their way boxing

I'd be astonished if he didn't get fixed up. Either League 2 or Conference.

In the latter there are a few localish clubs coming through the pyramid who seem to have money - Eastleigh, Dover plus Woking, Aldershot etc.

Obviously Wycombe will be rebuilding in L2 plus Oxford came up short and need to strengthen.

If Sergio isn't playing in at League Two next season I'd be shocked.

Proven quality at that level, an asset to any club.

I've said it before... but I'm not sure the club appreciate what an asset he is off the field... we want to get more people to games... well who better to go out into the locality... schools, businesses & the media... to spread the gospel...?

And he can get his coaching badges and help out in team preparation at the same time.

C'mon guys, a bit of imaginative thinking is required... bring on the Red Surge..!

The thought of Sergio Torres playing for Aldershot is bad enough, but Dover? DOVER??? Shocked Twisted Evil

I don't know how to do them but I wonder if the time is right for one of those funny Hitler videos about Torres signing for Wimbledon.
