Former Swindon Town manager Michael Flynn has been appointed as the new Cheltenham Town boss.

Cheltenham's new Director of Football Gary Johnson has opted to go for the 43-year-old following the departure of Darrell Clarke to Barnsley last week and Flynn will be looking to get The Robins to bounce back following relegation from League One last season.

Town will be facing their former manager once again this season as he will go up against his replacement Mark Kennedy. Swindon have never won at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium and will now need to get the better of their former boss to do so.

Flynn took charge of Swindon last May and was at the helm for seven months, getting off to a quick start as Town went undefeated in his first nine games in charge before winning just four of his next 22 matches across all competitions and parting ways with the club in January following defeat at Crewe Alexandra.

The Robins were relegated to League Two last season following three seasons in the third tier, with Clarke unable to recover from a start to the season in which Cheltenham went an EFL record 11 games without scoring having started the season with Wade Elliott in charge.
