CLUB STATEMENT: Whaddon Road fixtures

23rd May 2017

Cheltenham Town Ladies FC confirms that it has reached an agreement in principle with the men’s club to play two FA Women’s Premier League games at Whaddon Road in the forthcoming 2017/18 season.

The availability of the ground is subject to further negotiation but it is hoped that one game will be played midweek and another on a Sunday afternoon. In particular, both parties are mindful of the preparations that are currently being undertaken with the pitch.

CTLFC Manager Graham Fletcher said: “I am delighted that, after a number of seasons when it has not been possible to play at Whaddon Road, the Cheltenham Town chairman Paul Baker has generously offered us the chance to play two FA WPL matches there. We have always enjoyed a good relationship with the men’s club and this move is a fine example of their desire to help promote women’s football in our region.”
