History Makers: artwork starts today

25 April 2022

Last week we announced an exciting collaboration with Mira and the Cheltenham Paint Festival to mark the launch of our new season ticket campaign for 2022/23.

Andy ‘Dice’ Davies will spend the next couple of weeks creating the giant piece of artwork to celebrate the achievements of the club’s history makers, 40 years on from the start of our first title winning campaign in 1982/83. In total there have been five league titles and the new mural will feature our ‘five stars’.

Manager Alan Wood led his men to the Southern League Midland Division four decades ago, winning our innagural championship at Whaddon Road after more than 100 years before John Murphy added a second two years later, guiding his side to the Southern League title.

Steve Cotterill arrived in 1997 and transformed the club’s fortunes, overseeing three promotions in six years including the Football Conference win in 1999 while Gary Johnson triumphed in 2016, bouncing back to the EFL at the first attempt in 2016. 

And of course Michael Duff claimed the fifth with last season’s unprecedented League Two triumph. They paved the way for the current crop of history makers and one player from each of those momentous sides will be included in the final design, but can you guess who?

Works gets underway this morning and we will be bringing you daily updates on our social media channels as it comes together.

Then in July, we will host the Cheltenham Paint Festival and its artists to create a unique fence between the main carpark and Cakebridge Place. It’s all part of a busy summer at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

Season tickets sales have been selling well since we made the announcement on Thursday afternoon. To join us for the next chapter, visit our new ticketing system.
