Jordan Seabright: Goalkeeper quits football to become car salesman

Torquay United goalkeeper Jordan Seabright has quit football to become a car salesman in his home town of Poole.

The 20-year-old has played six Conference games this term since joining from Dagenham in the summer, his latest on 17 January at Altrincham.

“It’s a really brave decision,” Torquay boss Chris Hargreaves told BBC Sport.

“It’s a decision that I don’t think is necessarily the wrong decision, but the bigger factor is it disappoints me that he’s lost that dream.”

Seabright made his decision to quit the sport last month, but delayed leaving Torquay until after their FA Trophy semi-final with Wrexham, which they lost 5-1 on aggregate after Saturday’s second leg.

He began his career at Poole Town before being picked up by AFC Bournemouth in 2011.

After a season with the Cherries he was released and joined League Two side Dagenham and Redbridge, for whom he made 11 appearances in two seasons, before moving to Torquay.
