Prolific Striker Joins The Robinesses

30th November 2022

Cheltenham Town Ladies have completed their latest addition in the form of striker Libby Davies.

Davies, formerly of Royal Wootton Bassett Ladies has been in scorching form this season, finding the net 37 times in just 16 appearances. After bagging 13 goals in just five, she caught the eye of Cheltenham who offered for her a chance of football two divisions higher.

Davies, who has also previously represented Wiltshire, told Jon Palmer of Gloucestershire Live: “I am thrilled to have this opportunity as this will be the highest level of football I’ve ever played.

“Cheltenham contacted Simon (Harrison, Wootton Bassett manager) about signing me which was a complete shock.

“I was looking for a new challenge elsewhere so the timing of their approach was great.”

Davies started playing football at five years old after watching her brother, and played at Calne FC Boys up until the age of 15, while also attending South West camps.

After completing her A-Levels this summer, Davies is now looking forward to taking on the challenges of Tier Three wome’s football with Cheltenham.

“This was the level I wanted to play at,” Davies said. “I am now aiming to build my confidence and develop into a better and stronger striker. The staff and players have been very welcoming which has made the process of joining easier.”

Outside of football, Davies works as a food and beverage supervisor in a hotel.
