Tom Pett joins the Robins

2 November 2023

Cheltenham Town are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Tom Pett on an initial short term deal until January.

The 31-year-old reunites with former manager Darrell Clarke having played under the Robins gaffer during his time with Port Vale.

Pett has been a free agent since he departed Vale Park in the Summer but arrives in Gloucestershire, bolstering Town's midfield ranks.

He began his career in non-league football playing for hometown club Potters Bar Town, who he later went on to captain. 

He would then move to Wealdstone, where he turned out for two and a half seasons before getting his move to the football league with Stevenage.

Pett enjoyed a four year stint with Boro netting over 20 goals, two of which coming in his first career brace, against the Robins in January 2018.

Time with Lincoln City and a second spell with Stevenage followed before he was signed by Clarke in Staffordshire ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

Pett made 42 League Two appearances that season, including three in the succesful play-off campaign that ended in promotion to the third tier.

After putting pen-to-paper at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium, Pett said:

"It's all happened quite quickly. I've been in touch with the gaffer over the last couple of weeks and I'm really happy to get it over the line.

"I was really keen to work for a manager that I trust and he knows what I'm all about, so it was a win-win.

"You'll run through brick walls for him, you can see the lads doing that now. That's what I want to do for him and obviously for Cheltenham."

Welcome to Cheltenham Tom!
