Chris Robinson and Bob Bloomer return this weekend

21 February 2020

Former Robins manager Chris Robinson and ex-player Bob Bloomer return to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium as guests for Saturday's home match with Mansfield Town.

Robinson, who handed current manager Michael Duff his Cheltenham debut, is back for Saturday's fixture against the Stags. 

Now working in recruitment at Chelsea, Robinson has had a distinguished career in and out of football and was appointed manager of the Robins in 1995, guiding them to third place in the Southern League before then player Steve Cotterill took over in early 1997. 

Robinson took charge of 86 league and cup games for Cheltenham, managing a win percentage of 52.3%. 

Long-serving defender turned midfielder Bloomer enjoyed a nine year spell between 1992 and 2001 at Whaddon Road, making 264 appearances - also looking after the youth and reserve teams after his playing career.

Bloomer was also part of succesful Southern League and Conference campaigns, not to mention the 1998 FA Trophy victory. 

Both guests will be around the stadium and in hospitality on Saturday, you can also hear their interview on the pitch at half-time. 

Tickets for the visit of Mansfield are available to purchase in advance by clicking here - with the Robins chasing a fifth straight home victory in 2020.

Children from Gloucester Road Primary School will also be at the game as a result of ticket vouchers handed out from the Cheltenham Town Community Trust, we hope that they enjoy the match in our family section of the Colin Farmer Stand.
