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."
