Find a game to watch this weekend

24 January 2020

There's no game for the Robins in League Two this weekend with previously scheduled opponents Northampton Town in FA Cup fourth round action on Friday night against Derby County.

A new date of Tuesday 25 February has been announced for the rearranged fixture with the Cobblers.

With no Cheltenham game it's a good opportunity to go out and watch some of the local non-league sides who are playing this weekend in the county.

Here are a few potential options to check out if you are looking for a football fix this weekend:

Bishop's Cleeve v Reading City (please note now postponed)

Bishop's Cleeve are in Hellenic Premier Division action at Kayte Lane on Saturday.

Cirencester Town v Sholing

Former Cheltenham defender and coach John Brough leads his Cirencester Town side into action against Sholing.

Kick-off is at 3pm and the postcode is GL7 1HS.

Cinderford Town v Basingstoke Town

Watch under-18s second year scholar Aaron Basford keep up his goal scoring form on loan at Cinderford Town as they host bottom of the table Basingstoke Town on Saturday.

The postcode for the Causeway Stadium is GL14 2QH.

Slimbridge v Barnstaple Town

This season's Gloucestershire Senior Cup first round opponents Slimbridge will be hoping to keep up their play-off push with a positive result against Barnstaple Town in the Southern League Division One South.

The Tuffley squad includes two Robins under-18s players in Isaac Lawrence and Callum Ebanks who are on loan at Glevum Park.
