Nomads put a cricket score on Tamworth Swans

May 23rd, 2017

By Ellen Dunger (Armidale Express, 22/05/2017)
New England Nomads were at their scintillating best when they wiped out Tamworth Swans at home on Saturday. 
 The Nomads punished the Swans from the get-go and held a 8.8-55 to 0.1-1 lead at the end of the first quarter.
 
By halftime the Nomads had more than doubled their opening quarter score and the margin was increasing. By the end of the third quarter the match was decided as the New England team held a more than comfortable 28.12-180 to 1.1-7 lead. 

Their form continued into the last stage of the match with the final score blowing out to the Nomads 41.28-274 to the Swans 2.2-14. President Adrian Walsh said his side played to the best of their abilities against an under strength Tamworth team. More »

Nomads kick 41 goals against the Swans

May 22nd, 2017

The New England Nomad had a day out in the sun against an under-strength Tamworth Swan on Saturday in what was a very uneven contest. Midfielders Cameron “the Bullet” Graham, Tim Keys, Jesse Petrascu, Luke ‘Rambo’ Raymond and Jez Ratcliffe combined together brilliantly to dominate the centre clearances. Up forward Clarrie Barker (8 goals), David ‘Rampaging’ Richards (8 goals) and Harry Wakefield (7 goals) took full advantage of the opportunities that the midfielders provided. The game was also noteworthy for the debut of junior Morgan Dunn who acquitted himself admirably against the big lads. Final scores were 41.28.274 to 2.2.14. More »

Nomads smash Moree

May 8th, 2017

By Ellen Dunger (Armidale Express, 06/05/2017)
New England Nomads have proved unstoppable this season and this was the case once again when they demolished Moree Suns at home on Saturday. 

A nine-goal haul from returning player Harry Wakefield ensured the Nomads’ dominance in the North West AFL competition would continue. More »

The New Wakefield Plan – Harry kicks 9 as the Nomads post a win against Moree

May 7th, 2017

The New England Nomads won convincingly against the Moree Suns at the Bellevue Oval. Tom Hunt, Luke Raymond and Paddy Tobias dominated across the midfield while up forward Harry Wakefield kicked 9, Jesse Petrascu 5, and Ethan Karpany and David “Birthday Boy” Richards kicked 4 apiece. The Nomads had winners all across the park. Although the Nomads won by nearly 200 points, the game was more closely fought than this might suggest and if the Suns had kicked truly in the first quarter they would have been in the hunt. Final scores were 34.25.229 to 5.9.39. More »
