From the Torquay United website:

First team squad members Steve Adams and Michael Brough will strengthen the United squad that travels to Elmore this evening for the St. Luke’s Cup quarter-final – KO 7.45pm. Also added to the squad is former United, QPR and Fulham defender Robbie Herrera who now fronts up the Gulls’ Football Development Programme in conjunction with Paignton Community & Sports College.

With shaggy hair that could have seen him mistaken for a Colombian drug baron, Robbie Herrera was a bit of a cult hero down at the Cottage when I was growing up. He joined Fulham from QPR in October 1993 and made the left-back spot his own, even though he rarely crossed the halfway line. He made 180 first-appearances in five years, scoring twice, before losing his place to his old Rangers team-mate Rufus Brevett. Herrera was, of course, a key part of the the 1997-98 Division Three promotion winning side managed by Micky Adams that began the club’s remarkable ascent up the divisions.
