Midfielder Tom Smith has been handed a two year contract at Cheltenham Town following his release by Swindon Town last month.

The 20-year-old, who spent the majority of last season on loan at Bath City, scoring 11 goals in 30 appearances for the National League South club, made a total of eight starts and eight substitute appearances in his Town career before being let go after joining the club at 8-years-old.

“My 12 years at Swindon Town has come to an end today,” Smith said after leaving.

“I want to take this time to thank everyone at the club who has helped me through the system and make the step into the first team.

“Secondly, I want to thank all the fans for their support throughout my time here.

“I’ve made a number of good memories over the years and I appreciate the chances I was given.

“Now it’s time to move on and prove people wrong once again. As one door closes another one opens.”

Cheltenham have now added seven players to their squad since the end of the season including another ex-Town player, Ben Tozer.
