Flinders agrees to continue Robins stay

3 May 2019

Cheltenham Town are delighted to announce that Scott Flinders has agreed a new two-year contract to remain at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

The goalkeeper has signed a deal that will see him stay with the Robins until the summer of 2021.

An ever present this season for Michael Duff's side, the 32-year-old has made 54 appearances this season, keeping 11 clean sheets.

After first arriving in August 2017, the Yorkshireman is close to completing a century of appearances in all competitions for the Robins.

His leadership and experience has been crucial in helping Cheltenham register the club's highest league finish in the division since returning to League Two.

The former Barnsley, Crystal Palace, Brighton & Hove Albion and Hartlepool United shot-stopper commented on agreeing his new deal saying:

"I'm absolutely delighted. Personally it has been a good season. The club came to me towards the end of the season and made me an offer and it's an offer I couldn't refuse.

"I've been here for one and a bit seasons so I'm absolutely delighted to put pen to paper."

Assistant manager Russell Milton added: "He's been tremendous since he's been here for nearly two seasons. He is consistent which is exactly what you want from a goalkeeper.

"He has been around and has knowledge, experience and calmness, and he's played a role in helping us stay in the League last year, and helping us move up the table this year. He's a big voice in the changing room."
