Whether Austin signs will depend on what's left in the budget once we have a fullish squad.
Guess Charlie will simply weigh up the offers he gets and choose accordingly.
A 7 year contract might swing it our way.😉

Re: New assistant manager confirmed

Amusing response from a Torquay fan.

"I wonder if Pete Johnson will join Cheltenham and complete the hat-trick?

Amazingly there was actually a worse scout than Pete Johnson, but he died at the Little Big Horn."

Good opportunity to promote the season tickets, but pushed into it by the Aaron Downes post by JP.

Following on from his furious, finger-wagging response to Mr Halliwell at the Fans Forum it's safe to say the local media aren't in his good books at present.
