Fresh from full-time professional side Bristol City winning the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, with a 2-0 victory over Wallsall at Wembley on Sunday just gone, it seems that another team of Bristolians are gunning for a piece of cup glory of their own. Bristol City Deaf have reached a final of their own  after beating Charlton Deaf 5-2 in their semi-final. Goals from players such as Frankie Vaughan and Harry Potter have seen the Bristolians book a place in the final that will take place at the AMEX Stadium, the 26,000 capacity home of Championship club Brighton and Hove Albion.

The 5-2 semi-final success for Bristol City Deaf, who play in Division Six of the Bristol and District League,  came on the back of an even more impressive 5-0 quarter-final tanking of Manchester United Deaf. Bristol City Deaf are supported by the Bristol City Community Trust who provided them with a full playing kit and training equipment in addition to transport to away fixtures that they have to play.

The cup final will no doubt be a welcome distraction away from league action where Bristol Deaf sit in 11th place in the current league table with only three wins all season.
