Our Youth section, created through a merger with Cheltenham Spa Girls FC, offers a clear pathway for girls and ladies football from ages 8 and above.

First Team Manager Tom Davies was promoted to Head Coach in May 2020 after joining the club the previous summer. Davies is ably assisted by Assistant Manager Meg Harding, Head Coach and Technical Director Dan Liddiard, as well as coach Matt Branton, with Peter Mckernan as Head of Medical.
James Lally will manage the Reserves, starting in the 2023/24 campaign and Simon Beardsell will manage the Development side.

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.
