The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE PLAY-OFF FINAL -

IT’S been a bittersweet week for Chel­tenham’s Steve El­liott – one minute he was de­jected at the Robins’ exit in the play-off semi-fi­nal the next he was cel­e­brat­ing a new con­tract.

The 34-year-old defender was part of the side that fell to Northamp­ton but has now inked a one-year ex­ten­sion.

“It was a no-brainer as soon as the gaffer told me he wanted me to stay,” said El­liott.“I’m near to my 150th ap­pear­ance and that is over a three-year pe­riod, so I am re­ally happy with that re­turn.

“As a player you want to play as many games as you can and I’m sure the man­ager will al­ways look to get the most out of you dur­ing that time too.”
