League Two joint leaders Cheltenham Town have today boosted their promotion charge, after completing a move for Aldershot winger Jermaine McGlashan.

Robins boss Mark Yates has swooped to sign the 23-year-old on a two-and-a-half year deal, and the player has been handed the number 20 shirt at Whaddon Road.

A delighted McGlashan told Cheltenham's official website: "I heard that Cheltenham were interested in me and it has all happened so fast since then."

The move represents the growing upward curve in McGlashan's career, after playing non-League football at Staines, Kingstonian, Merstham and Ashford Town for most of his playing days to date.

He earned a move to the Football League with Aldershot Town in the summer of 2010, and made 61 appearances, scoring five goals for Dean Holdsworth's Shots.

McGlashan can even boast an appearance against Barclays Premier League giants Manchester United this season, starting on Aldershot's right wing in the Carling Cup tie in October.

He was one of the Shots' better players that night and his tricky wing play is likely to excite Cheltenham fans in his new move.

The winger will now be available for the weekend home game with Mark McGhee's resurgent Bristol Rovers, subject to Football League confirmation.
