The 28-year-old former England Under-21 international left the Shrews earlier this summer after two seasons with the club.

"I've spoken to a few clubs but it was nice to be able to choose Cheltenham because I've heard great things about the club and the area so I am pleased to be here," he told the club's official website.

"As soon as I heard about Cheltenham I was really looking forward to coming here and playing.

"It's a lovely part of the world for my family too and that is important to me."

Richards, who can play on the left side of midfield and at left-back, began his career with Ipswich before loan spells with Brighton and almost 100 appearances for Walsall.

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
