Vincent wings in for Academy coaching role

6 November 2017

Former Cheltenham Town winger Ashley Vincent has made a return to the Robins – after taking on a new coaching role in the Academy set-up.

Vincent – who was a firm fan’s favourite during two spells at Whaddon Road – has recently re-joined the club after becoming a coach for Cheltenham Town Under-16s.

The 32-year-old, who made 152 appearances for Cheltenham after first joining the club in 2004, will now be helping the next generation of young stars at the club and developing future scholars.

Academy Manager Antoine Thompson said: “Ashley is at the start of his coaching journey and is eager to give something back to a club that he knows very well.

“When we spoke I knew straight away that he could have a very positive impact on our young players as he works towards his A licence in the future.

“Ashley was a very popular figure and well liked during his time at the Robins,” he added.

“He is the ideal fit in that, being an ex-professional, he has exceptional footballing knowledge and experience that can rub off on our young players.

“This is another strong appointment for the set-up following soon after the news that Aaron Downes had joined as Head of Academy Coaching.”
