And, with a record of four wins from the five pool games played, a second place finish in the Northern Conference was duly secured.
It's a case of a job well done so far and Stanley was quick to praise the players involved and the local clubs who have contributed to the effort.
"Everyone at the club is very pleased to have made it through. It's great to still be in the competition, it gives us some more rugby to play and continues the winning mentality that Nigel (Davies) is trying to instill from top to bottom.
"We've had some players that have contributed in every A League game that we've played which has helped with consistency.
"But, coupled with that, we've also had great support from Cinderford and Hartpury which has helped hugely, particularly as they've put forward the same players which has contributed to our consistency."
Stan, as he is known throughout the game, also paid tribute to the attitude of the guest players.
"It's a big commitment for them. When we travelled to Newcastle a couple of weeks ago, one of the boys had to take a day off work to play for us.
"You can't fault that enthusiasm, and it's also good for our players to be reminded of just how fortunate we all are to be involved full time with a professional rugby club. It's a powerful message."
The competition as a whole has also proved to be beneficial to Gloucester Rugby, as several players have played themselves into form and into first team contention.
"It's been a very clear message to the players. If you put a run of form together in the A League games, you will certainly get your chance as far as the first team is concerned. And it's good that quite a few of them have made the most of that."
"Obviously, we'll be away from home in the semi final and that will be tough. But, if we continue to play the way we have done so far, we'll travel with every confidence."
Over 1800 people watched the win over the Wanderers and Stanley's final word was to comment on the backing that the team have received from their home crowd.
"That's been a really positive thing, the way the crowd has bought into the competition since the season started.
"We've doubled the crowd at Kingsholm across the three games which is fantastic and means a huge amount to the team playing that night.
"We've been playing some good rugby, we've been winning and the crowd are coming along and having a good time."
