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 »

Nomads lacklustre display against the Swans leads to a loss

July 30th, 2021

In what was a very disappointing result, the Nomads lost to the Swans at the Bellevue. This was the first time the team had lost at home this year. The Nomads, on the whole, lacked any real commitment to the hard-ball-get. Perhaps it was a consequence of the late decision to change the ground and an ungrounded sense that the Swans would not show up. For the Nomads, the Sleaford Mod Charlie Paine battled hard all day while was his usual indefatigable self. Young tyro Daniel Boyd had a blinder and showed what he will be capable of in years to come and Noah the Iconic (3 goals) led strongly all day. Ira Sulzberger was a tower of strength in the backline as was Phill Mitchell. Pat Sharp kicked 5 for the game to keep his position at the top of the league’s goal-kicking competition. The final scores were Swans 16.13.109 to the Nomads 12.5.77. More »

Nomads Women fall short in final quarter in loss to Swans

July 28th, 2021

Due to recent rain events, there was a mass exodus of football from Tamworth. This meant football was to be played at the spiritual home of football in Armidale, Bellevue oval. While conditions were dry, the gale force winds were going to be difficult to contend with. Over the past few weeks, we’d been in some really tight games. The weekends match against the Swans was to be no exception. It was a very evenly matched game in terms of the contest. However, after leading at every break, we went down by less than two goals in another devastating loss. The final scores being 2.7.19 to 3.10.28. More »
