Traveller Camp In Stadium Car Park - 9 November

Cheltenham Saracens home football matches were postponed for the second time in a week because of a large traveller camp.

Caravans pitched up in Cheltenham Saracens DN Fire Stadium car park forcing the side to postpone last Saturday's game against Thornbury Town.

Tuesday night's home cup match against Wallingford Town AFC was also postponed due to the encampment.

Fans arrived at the ground on Saturday to find the Thornbury game wasn't going ahead.

On Saturday Saracen's manager Ryan Betteridge posted on Twitter travellers causing a game to be postponed was "a first for me in all my years in football".

Saracen's are away to New College Swindon tomorrow, with their next home fixture (Newent Town) currently scheduled on Saturday November 17.

"We have a lot of new faces who have all settled in really quickly and they have very quickly developed a good spirit. Players who have been around the club before like Tim Griffiths, Ryan Smith, Cleo Hoare and Paul Holmes have played a big part in that."The lads have all bought in to how we want to play and what we would like to achieve this season."

Saracens have also defeated Pewsey Vale (6-0) and Thornbury Town (2-1) this term and the play Carterton Town at home on tomorrow (3pm). "We have had three good results against tough opposition," Betteridge said."We're pleased that we have shown different elements to our game. We've played some great football at times but we have also shown a grit and determination when we have needed to, Wednesday night's result being more workmanlike than anything against a good Almondsbury side. We are aware though that it is just a good start and that the season will be a long and tough one. One thing we will try and make sure is that we all enjoy the games. Winning will help that but so will playing in the manner in which the players are being asked to play."As long as we do that and the players are giving 100 per cent, as they have done for the first three games and all through pre-season, we can ask no more."
