Men’s Best and Fairest Awards: Clarrie Barker wins for the second year in a row.

January 5th, 2022

In a closely contested competition, Coach Clarence Barker has won the 2021 best and fairest for the Nomads. Clarrie who started as an Auskicker with us in 2006 had a remarkable year, on a number of occasions, winning games that were in the balance with his sheer force of will. New boy Noah Connick was a close second and was awarded the Runners-Up trophy for 2021. Noah also won the Players Player trophy. Noah has been a remarkable asset since coming from Nelson Bay at the start of 2021.

Nomads’ Women’s end of season wrap up from The Coach

November 18th, 2021

The AFL North-West season 2021 saw the Nomads re-enter the senior women’s competition after a year hiatus. Rebuilding a team was going to be a challenge. We had a few former players return but majority of the team consisted of new players to the club or first-time players. Forging a cohesive unit from a group of strangers all with various skill levels was daunting to myself as a first-time coach. I soon realised the potential of this group after a few games. The building blocks were there. We had strong leaders emerging and strong players showing their flare for the game of Australian Rules Football. It is phenomenal to see the comparison from the beginning of the year to the end. The first game had most of the girls still learning each other’s names. By the end of the season, we had developed a distinctive game style and system. The girls became a really tight knit and close group. This undoubtedly has contributed to the positive, inclusive, and self-less culture around this team. While our win record painted a bleak picture of our season, the on-field improvement and development of our women’s team poises us to have a successful 2022 campaign. More »

Nomads men win last game of home and away

September 16th, 2021

The New England Nomads won the last game of the home and away season convincingly against the Inverell Saints. Up forward Noah Connick (5 goals) and David “Modra” Richards (4 goals) were unstoppable. The mid-field of Clarrie Barker, Fraser Menzies, Tom Hunt and Charlie Paine were at their dynamic best. Conor Nest and Phill Mitchell were their usual rock solid selves. The team also welcomed Matt Pine—who has been around the club for a couple of years running Auskick—for his first game. It was also the last4 game for Ira Sulzberger who will be missed for his skills and continual ironic calls for us to enjoy ourselves. Final scores were Nomads 17.14.116 to 12.5.77.

Inverell deal out a hefty loss in season finale for Nomads Women

August 7th, 2021

An uncharacteristic break in the August Armidale winter weather had turned on a cracking day for football. The weekend saw the last game of the home and away season against the Inverell Saints. With a finals berth impossible, this would be the last day the Nomads Women would be on the paddock in 2021. The girls were not prepared to throw it away. Every game is an opportunity to improve. Despite being slightly outclassed by a well drilled Saints squad, we wanted to bring a real contest to the visitors. The scoreline left no doubt in the result however it was a gross misrepresentation of the effort shown by our girls. The final scores being 2.0.12 to 17.15.117. More »
