Baggott on joining Cheltenham

20 January 2023

On-loan defender Elkan Baggott spoke to the club after joining until the end of the season.

Yesterday, the 20-year-old joined on a short-term loan from Ipswich Town, and is raring to go for the Robins. 

"I'm absolutely delighted to be here. I want to help the club as much as I can whilst I'm here. The main priority is to stay in this league, and then hopefully we can push on even further," said Baggott.

Baggott was at League Two outfit Gillingham for the first half of the season, making 29 appearances and scoring three times. 

"I was at Gillingham in the first half of the season, and I've experienced playing in the relegation zone for a lot of it, so hopefully I can show what I've learnt from that to help the team.

"I've got to focus on my defensive duties, but if I can chip in with goals I will do."

The promising defender will be playing in League One for the first time in his career, and he's determined to step up and perform well at the higher level. 

"I'm really grateful that I've been given the chance to come into what has been a really good defence. They've kept lot's of clean sheets, and I want to help the team continue that."
