Gallery: A proud day as the Robins go blue!

9 December 2017

Manager Gary Johnson acknowledged it was a 'proud day for our football club' as the Robins went blue for a special cause.

Cheltenham were wearing a one-off blue strip for the home game with Crewe to raise awareness for the British Lung Foundation - the only UK charity looking after the nation’s lungs.

The blue kit was also a visible show of togetherness for the club's fitness coach Ian Hutton and his fiancée Vicky Veness. Vicky was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer earlier this year.

"I am very pleased with what the club has done for the British Lung Foundation - it is fantastic. The blue kit worked for us today," smiled Johnson.

"It makes you very proud. There are lots of things that footballers do that people don't realise they do, with hospitals vists and community work.

"Football clubs are very good when they help charites out, I don't think they ever say no if they can help it.

"This is something that is very close to us all here and we can all be proud of our football club for being a part of it today."
