Cheltenham Town striker Eliot Richards has returned to training with his club after being given the all-clear from testicular cancer.

The 23-year-old underwent surgery and chemotherapy after being diagnosed in March, and is now targeting a Christmas return to action.

Richards told BBC Sport: "It's good to be back. I've been away for a long time so I've missed the place.

"The physios have said anything before Christmas would be a bonus but I want to get back earlier. It's been an up and down few months for me so I just want to get fit now."

Richards has previously played for Tranmere Rovers, Exeter City and Bristol Rovers.
