Gloucester, who play their football in Blue Square Bet North, have been groundsharing with the Robins for three years and this new deal will see them through a fourth.

But a prerequisite of the deal was the full settlement of the debt which has arisen in respect of this year's agreement and in the light of those issues the contract has been amended to further protect Cheltenham next season

Cheltenham chairman Paul Baker said: "I am delighted that we have been able to extend our groundshare with Gloucester City for a further season.

"It is a good commercial arrangement for Cheltenham Town, especially in a difficult economic climate where the generation of sponsorship and other commercial income has been to say the least challenging."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
