Striker Lloyd is a record-breaking Robin

7 November 2017

Second year scholarship player George Lloyd achieved the remarkable feat of scoring EIGHT goals for the youth team in the 9-0 FA Youth Cup first round win at AFC Totton on Monday night.

No first team player has ever scored eight goals in one game. 

The last player in our records who scored eight in one game was Alf Holder, who claimed eight for the reserves in a 20-0 Birmingham Combination win over Hinckley United in 1937.

Prior to that, legendary striker Reg Smith scored eight for the reserves in an 11-0 win over Chalford in 1933.

The most goals scored in one match for the first team is six. This has been achieved on three occasions, by Ernest Coombs in 1935, Richard Collett in 1936 (both FA Cup) and George Tadman (Southern League) in 1948.

Congratulations George from everyone at Cheltenham Town!
