Cheltenham Town Ladies are one of the leading women’s football clubs in the Southwest and are committed to growing the women’s game in the region.
They strive to provide a friendly and exciting atmosphere for their supporters and are currently having a positive season in the fourth level of women’s football, the Women’s National League.
Let’s hope we can see them pick up three points against their opponents when they join us.
The club offers football from Under-8s right through to the adult first team. Alongside enjoying the action on the pitch, some of the youth teams will be joining in as flag-wavers for the men’s team and mascots for the women's team.

Cheltenham Town Community Trust has been working hard to grow the girls football programme they currently offer.
Over the past year they have run successful holiday camps and they have involved over 30 girls on multiple occasions.
The holidays camps allow the girls to practise their skills in different skills-based games and play in tournaments.
The Community Trust has also set up their first girls-only after school club at St James Primary School, with 18 girls participating each week.
From the success of this, they now help St James Primary School with their girls football team by providing training sessions and attending fixtures with the girls.
Holy Apostles C of E Primary School represented Cheltenham Town at the Premier League Primary Stars Under-11s Girls regional football tournament hosted by Bristol City.
The girls finished the group stage top of group A after three draws and three wins, being the only team out of all 13 to not concede a goal in the group stages.
The school narrowly missed out on a place at the grand final after losing 1-0 to Torquay United in the semi-finals.
The girls were a credit, both to their School and the Football Club, playing some fantastic football and demonstrating great team values throughout. They will be joining the Double Header event at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium as guests.
