Cheltenham Town have today confirmed that manager Mark Yates has in principle agreed to extend his stay at the club for a further 12 months, however, assistant manager Neil Howarth will depart the club when his deal expires in the summer.
Dealing with Yates first, chairman Paul Baker confirmed to the Official Site that although the deal wasn't rubber stamped, their was an agreement 'in principle.'
'We appreciate that this has been a frustrating season that has not matched the expectations of the supporters, the management or the board. However, we believe Mark has earned the chance to put together a new look team for next season for another crack at it.'
Baker goes on to say that since joining the club, the gaffer has obviously led us to two successive play off battles and even though that came to an end this year with the season we have had, they are confident that we can return to such successes along with exciting and entertaining football in the future with him again.
For Yates, the departure of Howarth will also lead to restructuring behind the scenes, which Baker confirms will include new players.
As for Howarth, Baker added.
'Neil has been a fine servant to our club over a number of years and we are parting with him on good terms. He has played a large role in the successes we achieved over the previous two seasons and on behalf of the club, I would like to place on record our gratitude for everything he has done for us.'
Baker obviously goes on to say that everybody wishes Neil 'every success' for his future now and he will always been welcome back at the club.
