Contract: Defender Boyle signs new deal at Robins

17 April 2018

Defender Will Boyle has today signed a new contract with Cheltenham Town – committing himself to the Robins until at least the summer of 2020.

Boyle joined Cheltenham from Huddersfield Town on an 18-motnh deal in January 2017.

The 22-year-old Yorkshireman is a firm favourite with supporters and has already made more than 50 appearances in Sky Bet League Two for the club.

Boyle also scored his fifth goal of the season in the recent 3-0 win over Morecambe.

Manager Gary Johnson said: “I’m delighted that Will has decided to sign a new contract. He’s had a very good season for us, especially in the last few months.

“He is still only 22 and to know we’ve got a player of his ability and character for the next two years is a huge boost to us all.

“Boyley is a great lad, a real competitor and he has all the attributes to be a future captain for us if he continues his current development.”

Garforth-born Boyle started his career at Sheffield Wednesday, appeared on loan for Kidderminster Harriers, York City and Kilmarnock during his time at Huddersfield.

Boyle said: “I’m really pleased to sign and get it done. I’m thrilled to secure my future to a club that has already done so much for me.

“It’s an exciting time for me and I’m extremely grateful to the support I have had from the management staff and coaches all the way up to the chairman.

“I’ve also had a great backing from the fans, from day one they have been brilliant to me, so I thank them for that.

“We have three big games to go this season, and our focus is on performing in those, before next season and I am really excited to see where we can now go.

“We have shown at times this season what we are truly capable of and, if we can find consistency, I’m sure we can all look forward to what the future holds for the Robins.”
