2021 at Cheltenham Town

31 December 2021

It's been quite the year at Cheltenham Town.

Struck like many other football clubs with the challenges of surviving in the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic, with no crowds and very little income, the football club not only guaranteed its security for the welcome return of the club's loyal supporters but achieved promotion back to the joint highest level in its history.

For the first time as a Football League member club the Robins were declared champions of League Two as the 2020/21 campaign ended in glory with the title and a place in League One for the current campaign.

Now the Robins are rubbing shoulders with the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Ipswich Town, Charlton Athletic and Sunderland, and already in 2021 some of those former top flight and European sides felt the full force of Cheltenham's spirit and endeavour on the pitch.

Throw in the biggest FA Cup tie in the club's history against Premier League superstars Manchester City, where the team were just nine minutes away from recording what would have been one of the greatest upsets in the history of the world famous competition, while a new club record run in the Carabao Cup was added to the history books too.

There's been a new third kit dedicated to those generous season ticket holders who were able to donate their money to help the club during the pandemic.

'All Your Dreams Are Made' was launched looking back as a special book at the monumental 2020/21 season with all the profits from it going to help fund the highly successful Kids for a Quid matches during the current campaign.

Proud Robins, the club's first ever official LGBTQ+ organisation was formed, while there's been more success for the under-18s as they made it all the way into the last 32 of the FA Youth Cup.

It's been another challening year at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium but a fantastically memorable one all the same.
