Manager Paul Tisdale has today added former Cheltenham Town defender Troy Brown to our ranks.

The 24 year old centre half made 48 appearances for relegated Cheltenham last season as they slipped out of the Football League, and he was released over the summer.

In previous years he has also played for Ipswich Town, Rotherham Town and Aldershot having spent eight years in Fulham’s Academy.

He also represented Wales at youth levels 24 times.

Brown now links up with the team for pre season training and becomes the latest capture for the manager following on from Manny Oyeleke, Bobby Olejnik and Lee Holmes whose loan spell last season was turned permanent this summer.

Speaking to the Official Site following his capture, Tisdale explained what we were getting.

‘We have needed to add balance and depth to our whole squad – with Scot Bennett and Pat Baldwin leaving, a central defender is something which we have looked at.’

Brown has been admired from a far by Tisdale for quite a while as his history shows he made his full debut for Ipswich actually against us back in the Capital One Cup in 2010.

‘We have played against him numerous times. Troy is a very good age and he has had a lot of football for a 24-year-old. At his age, there is a chance to develop and bring him through. For players of his age, they can add to the team and we can add to them.’

He comes to us having made 170 appearances in his career so far, with a return of eleven goals.
