Ashley Eastham has returned to Cheltenham Town on loan.

The 18-year-old had previously played five times for the Robins, including a 2-0 win away at Dagenham.

The deal is until the end of the season and will provide the defender with decent experience in the league.

Town boss Mark Yates was delighted to have his man back: ‘I’ve been actively searching for another young centre-back with some pace, power and strength,’ Yates told the club’s official website.

‘Ash has got that, he’s one we know, he can slot straight back in and he’s a good character.

‘Hopefully we can keep hold of him for a bit and help to develop him as a player so that he can keep on improving.’
