Cheltenham Town: Striker Harrison joins Robins, duo depart
Cheltenham Town have signed striker Byron Harrison from AFC Wimbledon on a two-and-a-half year deal.
Jeff Goulding and Alan Bennett have left the club, having agreed settlements over the remaining six months of their contracts.
Harrison joins fellow permanent signing Jason Taylor and loans Luke McCullough, Michael Hector and Paul Benson at the Abbey Business Stadium, with Luke Rooney set to follow from Swindon on loan as part of a deal that will see Marlon Pack move to the County Ground.
Harrison, 25, turned down a move to Cheltenham last summer.

He spent the early part of his career in non-League football before earning a move to Stevenage in 2011.
Boss Mark Yates said: "We like Byron and we have found out in the past to our detriment all about his strength and power.
"He is quick, strong and we had an offer accepted on Monday or Tuesday of this week, but it depended on Wimbledon getting another striker in, which happened very late."
Harrison scored twice against Cheltenham for Stevenage in a 4-0 win in February 2011 and Yates has been keen on him ever since.
