Cheltenham Town: Steve Elliott one of four offered new deal

Cheltenham have confirmed they have offered four players new deals, while four have been released.

Contracts have been offered to goalkeeper Scott Brown, winger Jermaine McGlashan and youngster Joe Hanks, while veteran defender Steve Elliott is set to stay on in a player-coach role.

Cheltenham retained list

  • Under contract: Craig Braham-Barrett, Troy Brown, Matt Richards, Jason Taylor (transfer-listed), Zack Kotwica, Byron Harrison, Terry Gornell
  • Contract offers: Scott Brown, Steve Elliott (player/coach), Joe Hanks, Jermaine McGlashan
  • Released: Sido Jombati, Sam Deering, Ed Williams, Ashley Vincent

Sido Jombati, Sam Deering, Ed Williams and Ashley Vincent have been let go by the League Two club.

Meanwhile, midfielder Jason Taylor has been placed on the transfer list.

Taylor, 27, joined the Robins from Rotherham in January 2013 and still has a year left to run on his current deal.

Cheltenham confirmed veteran striker Jamie Cureton, 38, was unavailable to meet with manager Mark Yates on Tuesday morning as he was on a course, but is set to enter talks.

Wales Under-21 international Connor Roberts has been spoken to but a decision on his future will be made at a later date.

Last year's play-off semi-finalists Cheltenham ended the season 17th in League Two - their lowest finish since the 2010-11 campaign.

The club confirmed last week that manager Yates had signed a new one-year deal to keep him at Whaddon Road until next summer.
