Cheltenham Town’s Alfie May becomes record breaker after 5-5 draw at Wycombe Wanderers

Cheltenham Town striker Alfie May became a record breaker in the 5-5 draw against Wycombe Wanderers after scoring four of the Robins’ goals.

Following his impressive performance at the weekend, May has now scored the most goals by a Cheltenham player in a single League One season at 15, with 14 matches left of the campaign.

The 28-year-old has been in fine form since the club returned to League One, but especially as of late with eight goals in his last four appearances.

The striker committed his future to the Robins in January after signing a contract extension until 2024, and has become a popular figure at the club since joining from Doncaster Rovers in 2020.

May is on track to become the club’s record goal scorer in the English Football League. He is nine goals from matching current record holder Julian Alsop’s 39.

Speaking to Park Life Sport back in January, the striker was already eyeing up the prospect of becoming the club’s top goal scorer in their Football League history.

“Someone sent me the goal record at the club and my target is to get that, alongside my main job that is to keep performing every week,” said May.

Following his good form with the club, May was subject of interest by USL Championship side San Diego Loyal in the January transfer window. However, despite the pull of a career in California, he opted to sign a contract extension with the Robins.

“My time at Cheltenham has been amazing and that was a big part of why I wanted to stay. I’m really enjoying my time here,” addded the former Milwall academy player.

The forward has been a part of a memorable journey with Cheltenham and helped them return to League One for the first time in 12 years after the side were crowned League Two champions last season.

But on a personal note, May has been in the best goalscoring form of his professional career with the Robins, scoring 32 times in 104 appearances for the club. Furthermore, he netted against Manchester City in last season’s FA Cup run, briefly putting the Robins in front before City went on to win 3-1.
