Curtis Davies' Cheltenham Town relegated to English League Two

Curtis Davies’ Cheltenham relegated to English League Two 

Curtis Davies’ Cheltenham Town has been relegated from League One after a three-season stint in the third tier. They suffered a 2-1 defeat away to Stevenage on the final day of the season.

Cheltenham Town’s football team, The Robins, have been struggling since August, with a disastrous start to the campaign that’s left them in the bottom four. They made an English Football League record by not scoring a goal in their first 11 games. 

Curtis Davies, an experienced defender, played the entire 90 minutes but could not help his team secure maximum points, leading to a defeat. 

He joined Cheltenham Town at the beginning of the pre-season for the 2023/24 campaign.

Cheltenham won 2-0 against Peterborough on Tuesday, giving them hope to stay in the division. They needed to beat Stevenage and hope for Burton or Cambridge to drop points to avoid relegation.

They failed to secure three needed points, while Burton lost 3-0 to Fleetwood. Nick Freeman scored the winner for the hosts in the 90th minute.

Goalkeeper Luke Southwood has been a steady presence in goal for Cheltenham this season. He did well to keep his side in the match during the first 20 minutes, producing back-to-back saves to keep out Elliot List’s strike and Nesta Guinness-Walker’s rebound.

Cheltenham suffered a big blow when Southwood, who has played every minute in the league, was stretchered off less than 10 minutes later after a lengthy stoppage.

Cheltenham had more shots and possession, but Stevenage scored a penalty in stoppage time of the first half. Matty Taylor drew Cheltenham level early in the second half. Freeman scored the decisive goal for Stevenage in the 90th minute.
