Round 9: a big day out

A good trip home after beating the Cats, round 9 2008Already undermanned for the long journey to Muswellbrook due to university exams and holidays, the Nomads were further depleted by bereavement, illness and finally car failure.

On the other hand the Cats managed to pull together one of their largest, and strongest, squads of the season and an all-to-rare four-quarter performance was required in order for New England to come away with a 12.9 (81) to 11.5 (71) victory.

Goalkickers for the Nomads were Dylan McGrath (4), Anthony Reid (2), David Dunlop (2), Kenny Clayton, Matt Denniss, Ben Page and Matt Maxwell.

Match-day awards went to Matt Maxwell (Players’ Player), Kenny Clayton (Coach’s), Anthony Reid (Captain’s) and David Dunlop (President’s).
