Congratulations to the Cheltenham Town ladies who will play in the Women's Premier League next season.
The Cheltenham Town ladies will be playing in the regional women's FA Premier League next season.
A second place finish behind St Nicholas in the South West Women’s league has been rewarded much to the delight of the players and management team.
Chairman Andy Liddle expressed his delight at the news after a memorable season.
"After three years of steady progress, we are delighted to have earned our place in the Women’s Premier League," said Liddle.
"It caps off an incredible season and the strength of our management and boardroom team isn’t far off that of our incredibly focussed players."
CTLFC will be competing with teams such as Forest Green Rovers, Southampton Saints, Newquay and Swindon Town. This puts them at the forefront of women’s football in Gloucestershire and they aim to build on this success and lay the foundations for future promotions.
"This is a fantastic club that has gone from strength to strength on and off the pitch in the last few years," said First Team Captain Kirsty Dunleavy
"It really is a new and exciting era for CTLFC and I’m proud to be part of it."
Meanwhile the women's development team also gained promotion last season and will compete in the Gloucestershire County Women’s Football League Division 1 in 2014-15.
CTLFC are still on the lookout for new players to strengthen both squads. Pre-season training has now started and takes place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7.15pm at Newlands Park in Bishops Cleeve.
The ladies will be in the Regent Arcade on Saturday afternoon with Cheltenham Town officials and Whaddney to help promote the upcoming club open day.
