GFA champions

St Nicholas U-14 girls are celebrating after winning the Gloucester Football Association cup.
The match played at GFA Headquarters in Almondsbury proved to be a closely fought contest with opponents Bristol Ladies Union taking an early lead before St Nicks managed to force an equaliser.
With the game heading for a penalty shoot out, an 88th minute winner from St Nicks gave the Chipping Sodbury team a deserved victory.
St Nicholas Old Boys are hoping for similar success in their respective GFA Cup competition. Playing for the first time in the Intermediate (North) cup, they put on a solid display to beat Fintan 3-0 in the semi-final. They now meet Ellwood Reserves in the Final on 14 April 2015. Currently top of Division 3 of the Stroud and District League, having only lost one game, the team are enjoying a very successful season.
As the football season draws to a close, St Nicholas FC are busy planning their May football tournament. Held annually at the Ridings in Chipping Sodbury, the tournament regularly attracts over 150 teams from South West England and Wales over the two days of competition. This year’s event will take place on 16-17 May 2015. More details are available at: http://www.stnicksfc-tournament.co.uk/
