Russell Milton to remain in charge of Cheltenham Town

16 February 2015

Cheltenham Town caretaker boss Russell Milton will remain in charge for the rest of the campaign.

The Robins sacked Paul Buckle last week and put their head of academy coaching in temporary charge for the 2-1 home defeat to Bury, assisted by former centre-back Steve Elliott.

The club confirmed on Monday that Milton will stay at the helm until the season is over and next week a 'more experienced figure' will be appointed to assist the 46-year-old.

"We wanted some continuity and we want more of the togetherness we have seen in the past few days, so Russell and Steve will be retained until the end of the season," chairman Paul Baker told the club's official website.

"We will also be recruiting a third person to join them, a football consultant, or potentially a director of football.

"The exact title will be confirmed, but the most important thing is the person we bring in. Steve and Russell don't have a huge amount of managerial experience, so we want someone who has a lot of it so they can bring that to the party.

“The added experience will help them and we have also agreed a budget to bring in two or three more players, with a few names already identified.”
