St Nick’s hold on to book quarter final spot

December 22 2018

St Nicholas U13s took on Warmley Rangers in a GFA Cup Tie, with the chance to progress to the final stages of the competition at stake.

A goalkeeping error gave St Nicks a break through, with Warmley scoring an own goal and the home side began to dominate, creating a host of chances that went begging. 

A second goal did eventually come, Haydn beating the keeper following an impressive run to score for St Nicholas.

 The second half saw an immediate improvement from Warmley, but despite having to defend for long periods, St Nicholas managed to snuff out any threat. 

Warmley were not to be denied though and they scored a fantastic goal to reduce the deficit and make the closing stages of the game very tense. 

St Nicholas, scored again, only for it to be chalked off for offside, but they held on for the win and booked a Quarter Final tie against AEK Boco.
