Our Club

Welcome to Cheltenham Town Ladies Football Club

Cheltenham Town Ladies FC are the leading women’s 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 for 2021/22, the First Team will play their home fixtures at the Corinium Stadium, which we groundshare with Cirencester Town FC, of the men’s Southern League Division One South. The Development Team will continue to play their fixtures at Petersfield Park, home of Cheltenham Saracens RFC. 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 the previous summer. Davies is ably assisted by First Team Coaches Morgan Hallett, Philip Pimlott and Dan Liddiard, alongside Goalkeeping coach Elliot Richards who joined in the summer of 2021.
The Development Team is Managed by Simon Galpin, who took control in June 2021.

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.

Please find the appropriate age groups from the Team menu (top of the website) for training times and venues for our youth teams.
