The midfielder, 33, is now plying his trade at Torquay, after an unsuccessful spell at Dunfermline followed his exit from Roots Hall.

After captaining Paul Sturrock's men during the 2010/11 season, Easton admits he is still disappointed with how his time ended at the Essex club.

He told the Echo: "It was a debacle to be honest and I thought what they offered me to stay was embarrassing after what I'd given to the club while I was there.

"They gave me a contract which was 25 per cent less than what I was previously on and there was no room for negotiation either.

"That's football though and I've moved on since then and I'm looking to do well for Torquay."

Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
