Robins visit over 5,000 with League Two trophy during summer

4 August 2021

Over the last two months the League Two trophy has been seen by over 5,000 people in Gloucestershire including supporters, sponsors and schools following last season's title success.

As Cheltenham Town approach the start of a brand new campaign in League One this weekend, the club have proudly been taking the League Two trophy out around the local community this summer.

We wanted to give as many people as possible the opportunity to see the silverware commemorating the Robins' 2020/21's history making campaign.

This started with a Saturday afternoon shortly after the conclusion of the campaign, where fans could come and take their pictures with the trophy in the club bar at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium. 

Thereafter, we took the trophy out and about in Cheltenham, also meeting a few of our fantastic sponsors along the way - it was great to start seeing some familar faces again. 

With help from the Cheltenham Town Community Trust, the club also visited over 20 schools and events around the county with the cup during June and July, also continuing to showcase it during the Trust's upcoming popular holiday courses. 

We were delighted to attend these schools and events with the trophy to tell our story of the first ever automatic promotion as a Football League club in what was a hugely difficult peroid of time for all during the pandemic. 

Thank you to all of those schools that welcomed us including St James' Primary School, Bishop's Cleeve Junior School, The King's School, Airthrie School, Heron Primary School, Widden Primary School, Tredworth Primary School, Leonard Stanley Primary School, Swindon Village Primary School, Benhall Infant School and Shurdington Primary School. 

Alongside school visits, the trophy also appeared at a Charlton Rovers and Southside Star youth football tournament as well as visiting some local pubs and Cheltenham Railway Station.
