Cheltenham Town trio secure contract extensions

Three Cheltenham Town players have secured contract extensions after triggering appearance clauses in their current deals.

Striker Jeff Goulding, wide man Brian Smikle and defender Keith Lowe will now stay until the end of next season after signing one-year deals last summer.

"This has been my best season," Goulding told BBC Gloucestershire.

"Our style of play does really suit me, and I can either be the target man or the one who drops into the hole."

The ex-Bournemouth man, who has scored eight goals this season, added: "I am enjoying it here and things seem to working."

Smikle, 25, started his career at West Bromwich Albion, and after following manager Mark Yates from Kidderminster Harriers, he has scored three goals this season.

Lowe came back to Cheltenham, where he had loan spells in 2006 and 2007, after spells with Port Vale, Kidderminster and Hereford.

He is the only outfield player to start every game for the Robins this season.
