Cheltenham Town have handed new deals to highly-rated duo Grant McCann and Shane Duff.

Midfielder McCann and defender Duff have both committed their futures to The Robins until 2007.

Northern Ireland international McCann (pictured) arrived at Whaddon Road in 2003 from West Ham and has become an integral part of the side.

Duff followed his brother Mike through the youth system at the club and he has now established himself after making his debut in 2002.

"I'm absolutely delighted that both players have agreed to these extensions," manager John Ward told the club's website.

"It's important to get these two players in their early 20s to commit for a further two and a half years because what we are trying to do is build a team here.

"I'm very grateful to the board for backing me and to the players who have shown that they want to play for the club."
