Commercial manager leaves Cheltenham Town

Commercial manager John Finnigan is leaving Cheltenham Town as the newly promoted football club deals with the impact of coronavirus on finances.

The former club captain played more than 200 games for the Robins with the news coming days after they sealed automatic promotion to League One.

A club statement said: "It is with great regret and as a consequence of restrictions upon the commercial activities due to the coronavirus pandemic that the club has taken the decision to end John's employment.

"We would like to thank John, not only for his service to the club's commercial department but also as a greatly respected captain the player of the team."

The club said Mr Finnigan, who also played for Lincoln City and Kidderminster Harriers, accepted the decision and wished him well for the future.

Cheltenham, who could clinch the League Two title this weekend, has joined other clubs and sporting organisations boycotting social media from noon today until 11.59pm on Monday in a protest against online abuse and discrimination.
