Defender Will Boyle insists the Robins is the best place for him to continue to develop – after the popular figure signed a new two-year contract at Cheltenham.
Boyle put pen to paper this week and revealed the importance of the gaffer and set-up to his decision to remain at the LCI Rail Stadium.
“There are a lot of things that swung it for me,” he said. “This is a club I have been at for 18 months now and I have settled in, on and off the pitch.
“I have enjoyed it from the start and a big thing is how much I have developed as a player. I see this place being the best place for my development over the next two years.
“I am 22 now so this contract will take me through to 24 and by that stage I want to be getting towards the player I am going to be.
“Over the past 18 months I have made great strides towards that and if I can carry on doing that by the time I am 24 I will be a better player. The gaffer has helped me so he was a big part of it.
“The lads are different class and I think the group we have got, although we don’t know what will happen with certain players and new ones will come in, I feel we have a nucleus to kick on next year.
“If we can keep the team ethic together and can grow, with the togetherness we had in the Conference, it can bring success.”
Boyle is now hoping for a recall this Saturday at Cambridge United as he targets a big finish to the season.
“I’m in contention to play so that is up to the gaffer,” added Boyle. “The last couple of games, when you are away for the summer, are the ones you reflect on. You want to leave it on a good note.”
