Our Club

Welcome to Cheltenham Town Ladies Football Club

Cheltenham Town Ladies FC are the leading women’ football club in Gloucestershire and the wider region with almost 150 members. Our First Team play in the FA Women’s National League South West Division and our Development Team in the South West Regional Women’s Football League Northern Division.

The club itself is continuously developing and improving and we play at “The Big Local” Stadium (formerly Petersfield Park) which we ground share with Cheltenham Saracens FC of the men’s Hellenic League Division One South-West. Our Youth section, created through a merger with Cheltenham Spa Girls FC, offers a clear pathway for girls and ladies football from ages 10 and above.

First Team Manager Tom Davies was promoted to Head Coach in May 2020 after joining the club a year earlier. He takes the reins from former Manager Alex Cheal. Davies is ably assisted by First Team Coaches Morgan Hallett and Calum Wands, Individual Development Coach Jess Hawkins, and Coaching Assistant Josh Davies.
The Development Team is Managed by Matt Bedford, who took control in June 2020, and is supported by coach Dene Field.

Our sponsors continue to be impressed by our achievements and we are always looking to attract more partnership or sponsorship deals. Our audience and exposure reached over a million people during the past year thanks to radio, website, newspaper and social media. The club has also seen increases in average attendances in each of the past three seasons.

Senior training takes place on Tuesday and Thursday  evenings – in late June, July and August at Swindon Village Park in Cheltenham. From September to May , Tuesday and Thursday evening training takes place at an alternative venue which is to be determined. Our home matches for First Team and Development are played at Cheltenham Saracens Football Club (GL51 9DX) with kick off normally at 2pm. When there are fixture clashes between the First and Development teams, the Development side may play at an alternative local venue (such as Tewkesbury School or All Saints Academy).
