New signing Sean Long admits he can’t wait to get started at Cheltenham Town – after an early look around his new home.
Dubliner Long, who has signed a two-year deal at the Robins, made the trip to Cheltenham this week ahead of pre-season training that starts at the club on Thursday.
And one of his first ports of call was the Jonny-Rocks Stadium as he prepares for life as part of a new-look Cheltenham squad.
"I am really happy to sign and delighted to be here,” he said. “I have been speaking to the manager for the last few weeks and I’m looking forward to getting going now.
"I am the eighth signing of the summer so you can see that there are lots of changes here. Hopefully we can all gel in pre-season and make a push for the league. It’s exciting times and I’m glad to be a part of it.
“I thank Lincoln City, I had two brilliant seasons there. But I’m at Cheltenham now and I will give everything I can to help us be successful.”
As for red-hot start in the sun this week for the players, Long added: “Pre-season is always the same and Thursday is meant to be the hottest day as well!
"We will all be working hard and we will get through it,” he smiled. "I have seen the pitch at the stadium, had a look around and it looks lovely. I can’t wait to get started.”
