Clarrie Barker is the Senior Mens Best and Fairest for 2020

October 26th, 2020

New England original Clarrie Barker won the Best and Fairest award for the Nomads in 2020, with Conor Nest a very close second. Congratulations to Clarrie for winning his second B and F with the club. In a season in which the Nomads only played 8 games it was always going to be tight contest and so it turned out with a tussle between Clarrie, Conor and Luke “Rambo” Raymond. The award was decided with the votes in the last game in which Clarrie put in a best on ground performance. Rambo, who is leaving us after 8 season won the players players award.

The awards were:
Best and Fairest Clarence Barker
Runners Up Conor Nest
Players’ Player Luke Raymond
Most Determined Morgan Dunn
Most Consistent Thomas Hunt
Best First Year Player Lindsay Brown
Goal kickers Andy Gray and Clarrence Barker
Club Person of the Year Kayla Hall

It was with some considerable sadness that we bid farewell (at least for now) to Luke Raymond, Andy Gray and Morgan Dunn. We will watch all their careers with great interest and look forward to seeing all three again when they return to the cool climes of the New England.

Nomads win their final game in the curtailed COVID season

October 1st, 2020

The New England Nomads finished off their season with a win against the Inverell Saints and in doing so ensured third place for the year. Given that the only final was to be between the first and second placed teams, the Noeys did not get to participate in the finals. The team played well in what was Sol Hanks’ 50th game. It showed what the team was capable of if given more time to develop. Up forward, Andy Gray, John McKay and David “Rampaging” Richards kicked 3 goals apiece. But it was the backline that was particularly impressive with Clarrie Barker, Will Gardner (shame he has spent so much time playing rugby) and Phill Mitchell letting very little through. Tom Hunt, Morgan Dunn and Tom Moscou also contributed strongly to the final outcome.

The game was also marked by a tinge of sadness with the team aware that this would be the last game for Luke “Rambo” Raymond who has played in 4 premiership teams for the Nomads as well as the last game from Echunga’s finest Andy Gray and the Walchan tyro Morgan Dunn.

The final scores were 15.14.104 to 9.5.59 More »

150 games for the Frostman

September 22nd, 2020

On September 12th the Nomads much-loved Johnathon Frost played his 150th game for the Nomads. Frosty, aka the Guyra Ghost, first played with the Nomads in 2007, under the encouragement of cousin Rhys Whitby. Since that time he has won 4 flags and played in 6 grand finals. He has been a key figure in the success of the Nomads over the past decade and a great clubman.

This is the Frostman on the great day celebrating with cousins David “Modra” Richards and Dwayne Graham. More »
