Howarth On Rushden 1999

3 April 2014

Assistant manager Neil Howarth looks back on a historic day in Cheltenham's history.

Neil Howarth was part of the Cheltenham team that produced that historic victory over Rushden & Diamonds 15 years ago.

Howarth, now the Robins assistant manager of course, started in defence that day and he looks back on that with us here on www.ctfc.com and on the official YouTube channel.


"It was a pivotal moment in the club's history," said Neil.

"If we hadn't have won it then perhaps we would not have been promoted and then you never know what may have happened in the following seasons but we did win, we did get promoted and we're still an established Football League club now."

Watch the highlights of that fantastic day here.
