Heart of a Nomad

From the Armidale Express, 18/07/2014
Footy runs in the blood for Nomad’s on-baller Johnathon Frost who played his hundredth cap for the club on Saturday.

Originally from Norseman WA, Frost moved to Armidale in 2000 and joined the Nomads in 2007 after the club’s half forward flank Weston Whitby asked him to join.

Nomad club president Adrian Walsh said Frost had been a key player in the team for many years.

“He’s the heart of the team,” Walsh said.

“All the other players look up to him.”

Frost is a lifelong footballer and has a natural ability to play in a range of positions.

He is known for his consistency and skill to win the hard ball making him a valuable asset to the team.

Nomads coach Zac Economou said he is a player that always delivers.

“As a coach, it’s great to have someone in the side you can put anywhere and know he will get the job done,” he said. “He gets a lot of respect from his team mates.”

Frost is only the fifth player in the club’s 15 year history to achieve the milestone.

An unassuming Frost said he had a lot of fun playing for the Nomads.
“We always have good time,” he said.

“My most memorable games was when we won the grand final against Inverell in 2012,” he said. ¬†“It was a really tough game at their home ground and we had to really fight hard for it.”

Frost and the team will take on Tamworth  tomorrow and hope make it 10 wins in a row this season.
