Cheltenham swoop for former Sheffield United defender

Manager-less Cheltenham Town have signed defender Craig Alcock on six-month deal after he left Doncaster at the end of last season.

30-year old Alcock began his career at Yeovil Town and has enjoyed time at Peterborough United and Sheffield United. He won the EFL Trophy whilst with Posh in 2014.

Caretaker manager Russell Milton was delighted to add yet another new face to the Robin’s ranks. “He is an experienced full-back that we have been after for a while and I’m pleased to get this one over the line. Craig is a quality addition and has a chance to stake a claim in due course.”

He played 41 Championship games for Peterborough in 2011/12, not long after leaving Yeovil for London Road, earning the Glovers £100,000 in compensation because of his age.

This could be a solid signing for Cheltenham, Alcock is a decent full back and has a lot to offer a League Two side.

He earned promotion from League Two with Doncaster a couple of years ago and will bring vital experience to the struggling Robins.
