Cheltenham Town's Champions Weekend

28 April 2020

It's Champions Weekend at Cheltenham Town as on the 35th anniversary of the club's Southern League Premier Division title win we're going to be taking a look back at three major title triumphs for the Robins.

We are going to be delving into the 1984/85 Southern League triumph that saw Cheltenham gain promotion to a national division for the first time in the club's history.

We'll also be looking back to the 1999 Conference championship success as 21 years ago Steve Cotterill's side earned promotion to the Football League for the first time.

And there will also be a special review of the Robins' most recent title victory - the 2016 National League promotion that saw the club regain promotion to the League at the first time of asking.

To remember each title achievement we're going to be hosting a number of special features with some of the heroes who made up each promotion success.

On Saturday evening watch a group Zoom recording featuring some of the stars of the 2016 National League title winning squad. Daniel Parslow, Dan Holman, Kyle Storer and Danny Wright will be together to look back to four years ago.

Then on Sunday night some of the champions from the 1999 promotion will be reminiscing about that time in the club's history. Current Robins boss Michael Duff, Keith Knight and Dave Norton will be recalling their memories of that achievement.

The final Zoom recording will feature the 1985 title winners on Monday evening. This will feature then manager and now director John Murphy, as well as players Paul Collicutt and Mark Boyland. 

On top of the special series of videos to watch there will be written interviews with some of the key men behind each promotion success to read here on the club website, while on Friday you can listen to a podcast previewing celebrations of the Champions Weekend.
