Mark Yates' men lost 1-0 to Northampton on Sunday to end their hopes of promotion from League Two but they have received a boost with their 34-year-old skipper committing his future.

"It was a no brainer for me as soon as the gaffer told me he wanted me to stay," he told the club's official website.

"It was just a case of signing the contract and it has been done nice and quickly which I'm happy with.

"I'm near enough my 150th appearance and that is over a three year period so I am really happy with that return.

"Leaving (Bristol) Rovers and joining Cheltenham Town has been everything I hoped for. I'm really pleased that I'll be here for another year."

The former Blackpool defender played 52 times for the Robins in 2012/13, scoring four times and helping his side keep 20 clean sheets, in his third season with the club.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
