Former Swindon Town boss Michael Flynn said that he feels like he has gone about looking to grow since leaving the club back in January.

Flynn has taken over at Town’s League Two rivals Cheltenham Town following their relegation last season and was speaking to club media after being unveiled.

The 43-year-old spoke about the work he has done since leaving Swindon, which has seen him visit clubs like Manchester City, Luton Town, and Como 1907, and how he feels that that has helped him to feel refreshed ahead of taking on his next challenge at The Completely-Suzuki Stadium.

He said: “I have had a good rest now after leaving Swindon and I am rejuvenated.

“I have been to a lot of clubs, looked around, refreshed, and tried to educate myself more. I have spoken to CEOs, and people in the game and I am ready to get back in the saddle as they say.

“It is going to be a long summer now, I wasn’t expecting to be back in so soon, I was looking forward to having a few more holidays but I am delighted to be back in and I am really looking forward to getting going when we return.”
