Robins confirm Mo Eisa departure

23 July 2018

Cheltenham Town FC can today confirm the sale of striker Mo Eisa to Bristol City for an undisclosed fee.

Eisa, 24, joined the Robins at the start of the 2017/18 season and enjoyed a record-breaking campaign at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

The Sudan-born forward scored 25 goals in 48 games in all competitions for Gary Johnson’s men – breaking the club record for goals in a single Football League season.

Eisa was named the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month for March and nominated for thePFA Player of the Year in the division.

The striker - who memorably also hit a first league hat-trick by a Cheltenham Town player for eight years against Port Vale in February -  also claimed three of the club’s player of the year awards.

Manager Gary Johnson said: “Mo is a fantastic lad who has worked very hard ever since he has been with us and so I am sure he will succeed now in the next chapter of his career.

“I’ve been saying for six months that Mo was a Championship player and I’m pleased for him that he will now get an opportunity at that level.

“Everyone at the club loves him and while are sad to see him leave we wish him all the very best for the future.

“Bristol City ultimately knew the most about him, not only because of my connection with Lee but because they had seen him play,” added Johnson.

“We had several Bristol City players on loan with us last season and all the Bristol staff that watched Mo, when they came to our games, agreed they should take him. They saw his true value.

“Mo had his preferences and was delighted when Bristol City came in for him. We look forward to seeing how he now progresses.”

All the staff and players at Cheltenham Town Football Club would like to take this opportunity to thank Mo for his contribution during his time at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium and wish him well in the future.
