Cheltenham Town's new manager Michael Duff has had his first training day with the team he once played for.

He scored the winning goal that secured Cheltenham Town promotion to the Football League in 1999.

He's left Burnley to take over the helm at Cheltenham, replacing Gary Johnson who was sacked in August.

Duff decided he wanted to become a manager at the age of 29 after suffering a serious knee injury.

He said: "The process started with a bad injury when I was 29 so that's when the brain started thinking what am I going to do - when you're a young player you just play, you don't think about it, you think you're going to play football forever."
