Cheltenham Town Ladies go into promotion battle in fine goalscoring form

Cheltenham Town Ladies warmed up for their top of the table clash with Keynsham Town Ladies with a 9-0 win against AEK Boco Ladies in the County Cup.

A hat trick from Louise Fensome and Becky Wilkins’ first goal for the club helped The Robins secure their place in the semi-final. They will face Almondsbury Women for a shot in the final away from home on March 17.

Ella Hitchcox, Rose Knuckey, Isobel Newns, Sally Butterfield and substitute Jade Wiltshire were also on target for Cheltenham’s biggest win of the season.

Frampton Rangers Ladies and Forest of Dean Ladies are the potential opponents taking part in the other semi-final.

Cheltenham won the competition two years ago, but lost in the final to St Nicholas last year. So The Robins will be looking for their second trophy in just three years.

After finishing with only 10 points last season, Cheltenham Ladies have almost trebled that number this season, already having 26 points eight games remaining.
