The NICKO

The Club sponsors up to four teams each year to represent the Club in the EBU National Inter-Club Knockout competition (NICKO).

Two teams have represented us for 2017-2018:

West of England A

In Round 1 they won away at Trowbridge County Town A, but lost away to Bristol B in Round 2.

West of England B
Steve Turner (capt), Mike Elliott, Steve Tomlinson, Robert Covill, John Councer and Suzy Lawson.

A great run to the semi-finals, beating Bath B away in round 1, Cheltenham C at home in round 2, Bristol A away in round 3, Reading C away in round 4, Cheltenham D at home in round 5 and TGR A away in the quarter-finals, and finally losing against Young Chelsea I (Hillman, Bennett, Leslie, Dhondy, Callaghan) in the semi-finals.
