Season Preview - Cheltenham Town

6 July 2018

With the 2018/19 season fast approaching we thought we would remind you of who we will be facing next season in Sky Bet League Two, today's team is Cheltenham Town

Name: Cheltenham Town

Founded: 1887

Nickname: The Robins

Stadium: The Jonny-Rocks Stadium, Whaddon Road

Distance from Prenton Park: 138.5 miles

Manager: Gary Johnson

How did they do last season?

The 17/18 season began slowly for Gary Johnson's men, winning only once in their first seven outings leaving them just outside the relegation zone. The Robins did manage to power away from the danger zone with five wins out of eight during September and October. After the New Year, the Gloucestershire side failed to find any momentum with a mixture of results seeing them hover around from 14th to 17th position. The final couple of months of the season were not pretty reading for Cheltenham as they suffered six defeats out of seven and stumbled to a 17th place finish.

New Signings at the time of writing:

Sean Long, Ben Tozer, Johnny Mullins, Conor Thomas, Tom Smith, Chris Hussey, Ryan Broom, Alex Addai.

History of results vs. TRFC:

Tranmere wins: 3

Draws:  2

Cheltenham wins: 6

When do we play them?

Our first fixture against Cheltenham Town back in League Two will be our first home game of the season on August 11th  2018 and then the reverse fixture will be away on January 12th 2019
