Clarrie Barker leads Nomads to their 9th Flag.

January 4th, 2023

Coach Clarence Barker—who started in 2006 as an Auskicker—has led the Nomads to their 9th premiership title after a thrilling match at Tamworth’s No.1 Oval on September 10. It was a long road for the Nomads, coming from 4th position, and playing all their games away from home, but the determination of the group meant that they were able to win a series of tight games to be the champions for 2022. Clarrie kicked three, Tom Moscou 2 and David “Modra” Richards, Cotter Litchfield (another former Auskicker), Sheridan Cooper (Holbrook’s finest shearer), Drew Walsh, Michael Tedmanson and Ethan Karpany kicked one apiece. Best for the Nomads were Noah Connick, Harry Dobson, Clarrie Barker, Modra, Daniel Boyd and Sam Jackson. Final Scores were Nomads 11.10.76 to the Swans 10.10.70.
