Cheltenham Civil Service RFC, Cotswold Area Civil Service Sports Association, Tewkesbury Road, Uckington Cheltenham GL51 9SL
With the advent of national leagues in 1987, we were placed in Gloucester 2. 2001-2 saw us blunder into Gloucester 3 by having 2 points deducted and coming third from bottom, but we bounced straight back again , winning all our league matches. In 2004-5 we came second with promotion to Gloucester 1. This did not go well. We would have been relegated but for a re-organisation of the leagues, and we did get relegated in 2006-7. Our response was to win the League and move back into Gloucester 1, where we are now working hard towards further promotion.
In the 2010/2011 season Cheltenham Civil Service RFC added a women’s section to the club, during which friendly matches were played. At the end of a very successful season the women also reached the criteria required by the RFU to enter the official RFU leagues in the 2011/12 season.
