Cheltenham Town Ladies FC To Recruit for New Chairman

25th March 2019

Cheltenham Town Ladies FC has announced that its chairman Andy Liddle is to stand down at the club’s AGM in June and as a result has today started a recruitment process to find a replacement.

Andy has been in the role for seven years and under his stewardship Cheltenham Town Ladies FC has secured its position in the FA Women’s National League – SW Division, where it currently lies in fourth place, established itself as the leading senior ladies club in the County and won the GFA Women’s Trophy. The club has also played two high profile matches at Whaddon Road.

Significantly, Andy led the Club’s merger two seasons ago with Cheltenham Spa to create a youth set up from under 8s through to senior ladies.

He has helped established strong links with Cheltenham Town FC, which continues to help raise the profile of women’s and girls’ football regionally.

The club said; “We are deeply indebted to Andy for his strong leadership and wise counsel and wish him every success for the future. His involvement in this Club cannot be overstated, his boots will be genuinely hard to fill”

Andy said “I have hugely enjoyed the last 7 years, but it is now time for a fresh face and new ideas. We were lingering at the bottom of tier 5 back in 2011, below both Gloucester City and Forest Green Rovers and now play our football at a much higher level than both our local rivals. We are pushing for promotion to tier 3 which would be a tremendous achievement and credit to the hard work all the girls put in, they have been a delight to work with”

Applications for the chairman’s role should be addressed to Club Secretary, Ian Purvis via email:
