Jed Ellis-Cluff wins Best and Fairest for the League

August 21st, 2016

Jed.Cammy

In a first for the New England Nomads, coach Jed Ellis-Cluff was the joint winner of the TAFL’s Gilles Medal for best and fairest, counted last night in Gunnedah. He shared the coveted prize with Daniel Leon of the Tamworth Kangaroos. Ellis-Cluff also won the goal-kicking prize for the TAFL scoring 65 majors for the home and away season.

And to top things off nicely, our own Cameron “Cammy” Graham won the rising star award for the league – an award his older brother David Richards won a few years ago.

Although the Nomads have over the years had a number of players winning the Runners-Up prize—including Tom Hunt, David Richards, Norm Northway and Rowdy Ballagh—no Nomad has previously managed to snag the big one.

Congratulations to both Jed and Cammy for well-deserved wins.

New England Nomads women’s team wins Inaugural outing

August 14th, 2016

In their inaugural match, the New England Nomads women’s team beat the Inverell Saints 5.9.39 to 0.0.0. It was an exciting spectacle and much closer than the scores might indicate. It was also clear that many of the Nomads’ women had played the game before! Congratulations to all involved. It is to be hoped that this is the start of something much bigger. Some real stars were on show on Saturday, including a second member of the Raymond family to play with the Nomads.

(More details to follow as they become available).

Thanks to Jesse Petrascu for all the work he put into training the women. Well done to all involved.
