Former Forest Green, Bristol City and Burnley midfielder leaves Cheltenham Town


Former Forest Green, Burnley and Bristol City midfielder Wade Elliott has left his role as manager of Cheltenham Town by mutual consent.

The Robins are bottom of League One, with one point, having lost seven of their eight games.

Their 3-0 defeat at Peterborough last night proved the final straw for Elliott, 44, who took over from Michael Duff as head coach in June 2022.

A club statement read: “The directors would like to place on record their appreciation for Wade’s contribution since joining the club as a coach in September 2020, playing a significant role in the League Two title win and then the Club’s highest finish alongside Michael Duff. He was named head coach last summer and went on to achieve the club’s second highest finish in his own right.”

Assistant manager Kevin Russell has been asked to take interim charge of the team against Stevenage at The Completely-Suzuki Stadium on Saturday.
