Former Huddersfield Town winger Danny Racchi can make his mark at Torquay United.

That’s the view of Kevin Nicholson, player-manager of the National League club.

The Plainmoor side are battling to avoid relegation from the fifth tier.

They are 10 points adrift of safety, with Racchi, 28, one of a raft of new players.

The Town academy product from Halifax made six first-team appearances, all from the bench.

He later played for Bury, Wrexham, York City, Kilmarnock, Icelandic club Valur, Hyde United, FC Halifax Town and Tamworth.

Racchi has signed a deal untl the end of the season at Torquay after a trial.

“Danny has looked good in training, and it’s a bonus to have him available,” said Nicholson.

“He trained with the rest of the lads for a couple of weeks, so it’s not as if he’s new to everyone. That should help him.”
