Cheltenham Town take their first ever steps into the FA Women's Premier League on Sunday following a busy summer which promises an exciting future.
The Gloucestershire side finished as runners-up in the South West League last season, earning themselves a promotion place to the Premier League in the process. They have made a number of new signings to their squad and have made closer links to the men's club, earning praise from chairman Paul Baker.
They will now be able to use a club minibus for away games and are hoping to move their matches to Seasons, where the men's squad train. In September, Cheltenham are due to play their home game against Forest Green Rovers at Whaddon Road. All of this is really going to help them progress and attract even more new players across both squads in the coming years.
In terms of new players, Cheltenham have signed Leanne Godwin and Emily Skipp from Gloucester City, Jenny Brown-Wealls from C & K Basildon and Laura McGlone from Swindon Town. In total, the club has welcomed 13 new players who will strengthen the First team and Development squads. The club has a One Team philosophy and everyone plays for the CTLFC "No More Page 3" shirt.
As well as a busy pre-season with games against Cardiff City FC, Gloucester City and a "No More Page 3" derby against Nottingham Forest Reserves, the website at www.CTLFC.com has been further developed and they have a good following on their Facebook page and Twitter account @CTLadies.
Both squads are raring to go this season and the aims are to build on what was achieved during the last campaign and continue to build links with Cheltenham Town FC. This will enable them to build the foundations for the future rise of the club.
Cheltenham Town's first ever Premier League match is at home to Chichester City at Newlands Park this Sunday (2pm kick off).
