Matty Taylor is a Robin

1 February 2024

Cheltenham Town are delighted to announce the signing of experienced EFL striker Matty Taylor from Forest Green Rovers on a free transfer.

The 33-year-old becomes the latest new addition to reunite with manager Darrell Clarke, who Taylor worked with during his time at Bristol Rovers and Port Vale.

He returned to former club Forest Green in the Summer but now moves across Gloucestershire to sign for the Robins on a two-and-a-half year deal.

Taylor began his career at boyhood club Oxford United coming through the academy but it was at the Memorial Stadium under Clarke where he made his name.

The striker netted over 60 times in two-and-half seasons with Gas, playing a pivotal part in their back-to-back promotions to League One.

He would then make the step up to the Championship with Bristol City, where he made 68 appearances, playing a big role in the club's run to the Carabao Cup semi-finals in the 2017/18 campaign.

Matty has since turned out for the Valiants, Forest Green and once again with hometown club Oxford, as he now arrives at Cheltenham with over 100 EFL goals to his name.

After signing for Town, Taylor said:

"I'm delighted to be here and I'm glad to finally get it done. It's been a long day but now I'm looking forward to meeting the boys tomorrow and getting going at the weekend.

"I'm hoping to help the team, work hard, help score goals, give advice and obviously we want to win games and climb the table."

Great to have you here, Matty!
