Duff honoured by Cheltenham

The 27-year-old defender, who was recently handed the armband by boss Martin Allen, will cap off the celebrations with a testimonial at the end of the season.

Duff joined the Robins straight from school and initially spent a year with the club's youth side before subsequently turning professional in 2000.

His days looked numbered towards the end of last season but he came back stronger to earn a new one-year deal and will now be looking to guide Cheltenham to an immediate return to League One.

He told the Gloucestershire Echo: "This will be my 10th season as a pro so I suppose I am being rewarded for my loyalty, which is a rare commodity in today's football.

"It's rare for a player to be at the same club for 10 years in any league and it doesn't seem to happen much any more."
