Local businessman Andy Wilcox has been named as the new chairman of Cheltenham Town Football Club
He takes over the chairmanship from Paul Baker, who last week stood down from the role after 21 years.
Andy was appointed at a Board meeting this afternoon by his fellow directors and will take over with immediate effect.
The 48 year-old is the owner and chief executive of construction company LCI Rail.
Cheltenham born and bred, Andy is a lifelong supporter of the club, he has been a major sponsor for the past three years and joined the Board at the start of last season.
"I am delighted and honoured to take on the role of chairman and very much looking forward to the challenge,” said Andy.
"It will be very hard to follow in the footsteps of Paul Baker after his long and fantastic service to the club.
"I'm looking forward to working with such a dedicated board of directors and I am very ambitious to take the club forward.
"Rome wasn't built in a day but we are looking to put plans in place to give this club a strong platform for the future.
"I've been a lifelong fan of Cheltenham Town and I am keen for it to retain its special place in the local community while pushing for success on and off the field."
Cheltenham Town FC are delighted to confirm the signing of experienced defender Johnny Mullins.
Mullins, who last season helped Luton Town win automatic promotion from Sky Bet League Two, has today put pen to paper on a two-year deal to make the summer switch to the LCI Rail Stadium.
The 32-year-old will add experience to the squad at the Robins having made more than 500 appearances during his career.
Mullins started his career at Reading and has also played for Mansfield Town, Stockport County, Rotherham United and Oxford United, along with a loan spell at Kidderminster Harriers.
The Hampstead-born defender has also previously been promoted with Rotherham and Oxford from League Two.
Mullins made a total of 51 appearances for Luton Town, scoring three goals, and captained the side on several occasions, including the FA Cup Third Round tie away at Newcastle United.
“I’m really excited to get it all agreed and I’m looking forward to a new challenge and a new season with Cheltenham,” said Mullins.
“I’ve spoken to the gaffer at length about his plans and I want to be a part of that. It’s a good set-up and hopefully we can achieve what we have discussed and have a really successful season.
“I’ve had a brilliant time at Luton and it was great to get promoted. But I’m coming here to do it again and have big ambitions that I want to achieve here.”
