Club Statement: Darrell Clarke departs

Cheltenham Town can today confirm that first team manager Darrell Clarke has left the club to pursue a new opportunity with League One outfit Barnsley.

Clarke had another year remaining on his existing contract but compensation has been agreed between the two clubs to allow him to move to Oakwell.

The club had offered Darrell a new extended contract with improved terms but an agreement could not be reached. The 46-year-old has now opted to depart, ending his eight month tenure at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium.

We would like to thank Darrell for his contribution since arriving at the club back in September and wish him well in his future endeavours.

A further update from the Chairman surrounding Darrell’s departure and the next steps will be issued later today.
