Pittman joins Truro
Ex-Rovers striker Jon-Paul Pittman has joined Truro City on loan from Torquay United for the whole of the 2018/19 - but it doesn't mean he's going anywhere, as Truro are ground-sharing with Torquay at Plainmoor this season!
Torquay's head coach, Gary Owers, told Devon Live: "We’ve developed a new squad over the summer months which may have pushed him down the pecking order a little. This is an opportunity for him to go and play some football. He’s a great lad and I wish him well. Maybe it’s been a frustrating time for him not playing as much as he would have liked."

Spireites pip Swindon to sign Fortune
Former Rovers loan striker Marc-Antoine Fortune has joined Chesterfield, despite having trained with Swindon Town during the summer, with Town seemingly favourites for his signature.
However, new Spireites boss Martin Allen must have done a bit of persuasion to get Fortune to drop into the National League.
Speaking to the Derbyshire Times, Allen commented: "He’s not a prolific goal scorer but he leads the line, he’s quick and strong. One of my best friends in football is Kevin Keen, first team coach at Southend and he said that at the end of last season they all thought they should have kept him, but financially they needed to strengthen in other positions. They were disappointed they couldn’t keep him."
He added: "He played 30-odd games for Southend in League One last season and did very well. For us to get a centre forward who played that many games in League One, it’s a good one for us."
