Cheltenham Town have opted against offering free agent midfielder Jake Gray a contract.

The 23-year-old has been on trial with the League Two side but will have to look elsewhere for his new club, according to a report by Gloucestershire Live.

Gray has also spent time on trial in League One this summer with his former club Wycombe Wanderers and played in a friendly for the Chairboys against Barnet last month.

He is a free agent after being released by Yeovil Town at the end of the season following their relegation to the National League.

Gray started his career at Wycombe but left in 2012 to join Crystal Palace. He made his first team debut for the Eagles in a League Cup tie against Walsall in August 2014 and went onto play once more for the Premier League side.

He spent time away from Selhurst Park on loan at Cheltenham during the 2014/15 season before spending the campaign after in the fourth tier with Hartlepool United.

Luton Town signed him on a permanent deal in 2016 and he made 28 appearances for the Hatters in all competitions, chipping in with two goals before leaving for Yeovil Town after a single season at Kenilworth Road.

Gray was a key player for the Glovers and played 71 times for them but could not prevent them from slipping out of the Football League in May. He will now continue his search for his next employers.
