Gary Johnson looking forward to Cheltenham Town challenge

31 March 2015

Gary Johnson has said he is looking forward to the challenge at Cheltenham Town after being appointed as the club's new boss until the end of the season.

Johnson, the former Yeovil Town and Bristol City manager, takes over at Cheltenham with the club sitting bottom of Sky Bet League 2, two points adrift of safety.

The Robins went through March without a victory, and have only tasted success twice in 25 League 2 outings, stretching back to late October.

Johnson is now looking forward to getting started, working alongside Russell Milton, Steve Elliot, and the club's existing backroom team.

“I was honoured to be asked to take on the manager’s role at Cheltenham Town until the end of the season,” Johnson said to the club's official website.

“I am very happy to be working with Russell, Steve and Jamie [Victory]. I understand the position the club are in and I will be doing my best along with Russell to keep the club in The Football League.

“I am looking forward to getting started. I know the club, the staff and the players well and I am looking forward to getting into the swing of it and doing everything we can to succeed in our mission.

“It’s all hands on deck for the last seven games.”
