Robins TV: Eisa thanks club and fans for support

23 July 2018

Striker Mo Eisa has thanked the club’s staff and fans for all their support during his time at Cheltenham Town after completing a move to Bristol City.

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.

And speaking to Robins TV after sealing his move to Bristol City he paid tribute to those that had supported him during his time at the club – and vowed to be back as a fan!

“I’m excited to join Bristol City but at the same time sad to leave,” he said. “I didn’t think I would be going after one year but things on move on and I’m excited about the future.

“I was at Greenwich before I came here and I didn’t expect to do what I have achieved. It’s been a massive season for me.

“I didn’t expect to jump up the leagues so quickly, I just wanted to develop, but I developed so fast this year and it helped me get where I want to be faster.

“Without the staff here I wouldn’t be where I am today,” he added. “Without the gaffer and everyone at the club I wouldn’t be the player I am.

“It is credit to them. They looked after me and had faith and trust in me. It is thanks to them.

“There are a few games that stand out. Scoring my first goal in the league was something special and scoring my first hat-trick was amazing. There are a lot of good memories at Cheltenham.

“I have good friends here and I will be here as a fan now - I will try and be there to support them whenever I can.

“They are true friends and I’m sure they will come to support me too at Bristol. We will stay in touch.”

Eisa also paid tribute to the Cheltenham fans who took to him from the moment he arrived at Whaddon Road.

“The fans have been amazing since day one when I arrived,” he smiled.

“I thought there would be pressure because I was coming from non-league. But there was none of that.

“The first game was so easy and the second game with Oxford United they made up a song for me. That was a special feeling that I didn’t expect. The fans have been amazing here and I love them for that.”
