Daniel Parslow and Terry Paterson back as guests this weekend

6 March 2020

Two former Cheltenham Town players from different eras return to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium on Saturday as the club's guests against Port Vale.

Long-serving Stroud-born midfielder Terry Paterson was with the club for eight years in total  and 30 years later Daniel Parslow played for Cheltenham between 2015-2017. 

A left sided defender or midfielder, Paterson enjoyed two spells at Whaddon Road starting with a four year stint in the mid to late 1970's.

He returned to Cheltenham in 1982 and scored 17 goals from midfield as the club won the Southern League Midland Division Championship that season.

Paterson the remained with the Robins until 1984-85 and made an impressive 231 appearances in total, scoring 47 goals.

Vanarama National League title winner Parslow spent one and a half seasons at the club and played a key part in the promotion campaign as the Robins bounced back into the Football League at the first attempt in 2015/16. 

The Welshman was a mainstay in the centre of defence, partnering captain Aaron Downes until his injury before playing next to Cameron Burgess for the remainder of the campaign as Gary Johnson's side amassed 101 points, losing just five league games all season. 

Parslow played the first half of the 2016/17 season in League Two before returning to former club York City - he retired last year due to a head injury and now helps raise awareness for such issues. 

Please give both former Robins a warm welcome back as they make their way onto the pitch at half-time.
