Allen welcomes fans' assistance

06 May 2009 01:31
The cash-strapped Robins were forced to part ways with chief scout Alan Fettis earlier this year in a bid to cut costs, with Allen undertaking the painstaking process of searching for new signings.

And in a statement on the club's official website, he said: "Due to a lack of scouting I would be more than happy to receive any ideas and names of players for me to follow up.

"Unfortunately I will not be able to reply to every letter or email but the players must be out of contract for me to consider them."

Andy Lindegaard has now joined Paul Connor in being told he will not be offered a new deal but that the club could still retain him depending on developments in his search for a new employer. Alan Wright, Gavin Caines and Aaron Ledgister have already been released.

Elsewhere, Cheltenham have announced home pre-season fixtures against Premier League new boys Birmingham, current top-flight strugglers West Brom and neighbours Bristol City and Bristol Rovers.
