The Cheltenham Thing: made by us

2 May 2023

How do we do it?

Another season in League One brought a new challenge, a new gaffer.
A dressing room full of new team-mates, too.
Moments we’ll never forget. Moments we wish we could forget.
But we did it the way we always do it.
Honest. Tireless. United. The only way we know how.
Jim. Jenny. Matt, Murph, Jamie, Debbie, Tim, Tracey.
Block 1, the Paddock, the Prestbury Road End.
Catching up. The jokes and the arguments. Then roaring them on.
Saturday afternoons in all weathers.
Tuesday nights under lights.
You won’t get this watching telly, you know, waiting on VAR.
We’re not watching it happen.
We’re part of making it happen.
Breathing it in: football life.
Mates. Strangers. And the boys. Come on Boys!
It hits the net; it whistles just wide.
The next flying header, the next tackle won.
We’re all up together.
Course we are. Because we’re all in this together.
Proud of them. Proud of us. Proud of the Town.
And next season?
More big boys - with big bucks and big reputations - to welcome to Whaddon.
This is our home sweet home.
Honest, tireless, united: we’ll take on anyone here.
Easy? It never is.
But we’ll give it all we’ve got, on the pitch and off.
Maybe write another famous chapter to go with all the rest.
Loving this, mate. Rain or shine. The live thing. The team thing.
You know, it’s a Cheltenham thing.
Made by us and made at Cheltenham Town.
