"Cheltenham have just concluded what is arguably their most successful season ever," said club chairman Paul Baker.

"We can look back with some satisfaction and pride at what was achieved, but now is the time to look forward and we can do so with confidence and realistic ambition.

"Key to much of that is our manager John Ward, who has steadily built the football side of the business - not just the first-team but the reserves and younger teams too - resulting in the success achieved last season."
