The Coasters look to carry on their impressive form this Saturday and they travel down to Gloucestershire to face Gloucester City at Whaddon Road in the Vanarama Conference North.

As the two sides have never met before, most Coasters fans won’t know that Gloucester City have been playing at Whaddon Road – Cheltenham Town’s stadium – since 2010. Gloucester’s stadium, Meadow Park, was washed out and no longer habitable after the serious floods around the area in 2007.

On the pitch, it’s been a tale of two stories so far for Fylde and Gloucester.

The Coasters have taken the Conference North by storm and currently sit second in the league table on 16 points from 8 games after winning 5 and drawing one. It truly has been an excellent start for AFC Fylde and long may it continue.

Not only are The Coasters second in the league, they have the best goal difference in the league by a country mile and have also scored at least 4 more goals than any other side so far.

Gloucester’s form has been indifferent, with them being the draw specialists in this league along with Tamworth. The Tigers have drawn 5 out of their first 8 games so far, winning one and losing two, most recently a 4-1 loss to Leamington on Tuesday night.

They sit 17th on 8 points from 8 games and they will undoubtedly be looking for all three points to try to kick start their season. One consolation for The Tigers is that they have a good goalscorer in their ranks in the name of Charlie Griffin, who has 6 goals from 5 starts so far this season.

Admission for this game is £12 for adults, £6 for concessions (Over 65’s and students) and completely FREE for Under 18’s.

Disabled (wheelchair spaces) is provided and those wishing to avail themselves of this facility need to just present themselves at the turnstiles. Carers go free and car parking is available without prior booking.

The match kicks off at 15:00 at Whaddon Road, Cheltenham, so make sure you come down to support The Coasters!

The return fixtures between Fylde and Gloucester City  is on the final day of the Vanarama Conference North season, April 25th 2015 at Kellamergh Park.
