Permanent Deal For Craig

20 August 2013

Craig Braham-Barrett has joined Cheltenham Town permanently this afternoon.

Full back Craig Braham-Barrett has today signed a permanent deal with Cheltenham Town on a free transfer.

Craig, 24, had initially joined the Robins on a six month loan spell from Macclesfield Town but he has done enough to earn himself a permanent contract which will run until the end of the current season.

He made his Football League debut in the 2-2 draw versus Burton Albion in our league opener and he has now made 4 appearances as a Robin.

"We like what we've seen and it's great to sign Craig permanently," said Mark.

"It was the right move for ourselves, Macclesfield and Craig himself. He has done well since joining us on loan and there's a lot more to come too. The hard work starts here and Caraig is ready for that."

Craig started his career with Charlton Athletic and spent five years with the club before enjoying spells at Eastleigh and East Thurrock. He made the move to Welling United in May 2008 but he was soon on the move again when Peterborough United paid a report £10,000 fee for his services in October 2008. He left the Posh a year later having made no appearances and linked up with Grays Athletic. He made 12 appearances for Grays in the first half of the 2009-10 season but then moved onto Farnborough in January 2010. 

He played 67 games for Farnborough in total before joining Havant & Waterlooville and he stuck with the club for most of the season before joining Sutton United in February 2012. He left Sutton in the summer of 2012 and joined Macclesfield Town on a short term deal but that was extended by the club following impressive performances in the first half of their Conference Premier campaign. He made 46 appearances for Macclesfield last season but joined the Robins on loan at the start of the season before making the move permanent this afternoon.

There will be an exclusive interview with Craig later today on Robins Player and on YouTube.
