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 »

All tied up, Nomads women scratch up a draw against Suns

July 19th, 2021

The weekend had the Nomad women hit the road to make the journey to the distant Northern outpost of Moree after a venue change. It was shaping up to be a typical miserable winters day at Bellevue (the spiritual home of football in Armidale), so Moree seemed like a tropical paradise in comparison. On the back of a tough loss the previous week we were looking for a scalp against the Suns. Travelling short on numbers with big outs, punters wouldn’t have listed us as favourites. We knew it could be a tough day in the office, but we back each other, and we back our system to get the job done. After a slow start we looked like we’d run away with a steal. The Suns were determined not to concede, and a draw ensued. The final score being 4.2.26 to 3.8.26.
