Day One of the Cheltenham Orange Veins Cup

16 April 2022

The Cheltenham Town training ground played host on Saturday to day one of the Cheltenham Orange Veins Cup.

Under-14s teams from across Europe headed to the training ground for a special tournament held by the Cheltenham Town Academy in association with Orange Veins.

Premier League clubs Chelsea, West Ham United and Leicester City entered teams into the competition, while there is also a Northern Ireland under-14s national squad, Nottingham Forest, two Cheltenham Town academy sides and FC Flora from Estonia.

A fantastic first day saw the tournament take place across two different group competitions with each match taking 40 minutes to complete.

The teams will now return for a second day on Sunday to compete in the finals. 

It has been a fantastic opportunity to showcase the facilities on offer at the training ground for the Academy, while also giving young under-14s footballers from some of the best academy set-ups in the UK and elsewhere in Europe a chance to go head-to-head in Cheltenham.

The two groups ended like this ahead of finals day on Sunday:

Group A

    Pld Pts
1 West Ham United 3 9
2 Chelsea 3 6
3 Cheltenham Town 3 3
4 FC Flora 3 0

Group B

1 Leicester City 3 9
2 Cheltenham Town 2 3 6
3 Northern Ireland (Irish FA) 3 3
