Our Club

Welcome to Cheltenham Town Ladies Football Club

CTLFC are the leading ladies’ 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 Reserves 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. 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 joined the club as Head Coach in June 2019, taking over from former Manager Alex Cheal in May 2020. Davies is ably assisted by First Team Coach Jess Hawkins, Goalkeeping Coach Alyta Norman, and Coaching Assistant Josh Davies.
Reserve Team Manager Cameron Cheal is assisted by coaches Ben Ware and Andy Symanowski.
Katy Jackson is the club’s Head of Medical, assisted by Mollie Hackford.

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 the University of Gloucestershire’s Park Campus in Cheltenham. From September to May , Tuesday evening training takes place at All Saints Academy, Blaisdon Way, Cheltenham; Thursday evening it takes place at Hartpury College. Our home matches for Firsts and Reserves are played at Cheltenham Saracens Football Club (GL51 9DX) with kick off normally at 2pm. When there are fixture clashes between the First and Reserve teams, the Reserves may play at an alternative local venue (such as Tewkesbury School).
