Alex Cheal has stepped down as manager of Cheltenham Town, who were third in the FA Women’s National League Division 1 South West before the season was ended.
Appointed in December 2017, Cheal had to settle for the Robins only finishing ninth in that campaign but they accumulated over four times as many points in 2018-19 to end fourth.
The 31-year-old then again had them among the promotion chasers in 2019-20, before results were expunged.
“To go from struggling to get past 10 points to a side that’s consistently competing at the top of the league has been the highlight and it’s been a continual journey,” Cheal told gloucestershirelive.co.uk.
“This reflects on not only me, but everyone behind the scenes and the development of the club is also a huge positive.
“It’s been such a pleasure being part of the club. I have enjoyed being part of a journey that I am sure will see the club promoted to a higher level.”
