Nicola Sinnott (born 8 August 1987) is a Republic of Ireland women's international footballer who plays for Wexford Youths of the Women's National League.

Club career[edit]

Sinnott played youth football for Boca Juniors of Gorey, then attended University College Dublin on a soccer scholarship.[1] She transferred to Peamount United, where she was part of the 2010 FAI Women's Cup-winning team[2] and the subsequent 2011–12 UEFA Women's Champions League campaign.[3]

In November 2011, Sinnott signed for Shamrock Rovers ahead of the inaugural 2011–12 Women's National League season.[4] After moving on to Wexford Youths, she found success in the 2014–15 season; being named in the league Team of the Season as the club won the championship.[5]

International career[edit]

Sinnott made her international debut at under-17 level for Ireland in April 2004. She was named player of the tournament in a four-team competition hosted in Castlebar.[6] She later played at under-19 level[7] and represented Irish Universities at the World University Games, playing in the 2009 tournament in Belgrade.[8]

In May 2015, Sinnott was called up to the senior national team for the first time, for a friendly in the United States. After the match had been arranged, it was discovered to be outside FIFA's designated dates for international matches, so several of Ireland's first-choice players were not released by their clubs.[9] Sinnott won a debut cap as a late substitute for Stephanie Roche in Ireland's 3–0 defeat.[10]

Personal life[edit]

Sinnott is employed as a secondary school teacher in Enniscorthy.[4]
