Academy Kick Off 2017/2018 Futsal Program

10 months ago By Jay Catton

This weekend our sides enjoyed number of futsal events and tournaments along with a number of competitive friendly fixtures.

The action kicked off last Wednesday when our Nomads Academy Coleg Cambria Scholars B side defeated Yale College First team by four goals to one to maintain their place at top of the North Wales Colleges league program.

Friday evening our under 12s hosted Flintshire County team in a friendly followed by our under 8 and 9 sides facing local league teams in friendly fixtures.

Our U14s completed the evenings action with a six three win over Allsport from Liverpool which saw the Nomads trail three nil in the early stages of the game.

Saturday morning was the official start of the new 2017/2018 North Wales Academy Futsal program which kicked off with U8 and U9 festivals. Both our mini sides were outstanding on the morning, both unbeaten and more importantly performed to a very high level.

Our U10 and U11 sides hosted Flint Town United Academy at The Quay 3G in 9v9 fixtures with two wins for the Nomads sides.First experience for our U10s in 9v9 format as well which was a great test and learning curve.

The positive day for Connah's Quay Nomads Football Club was completed in the afternoon with the first team progressing to the last 16 in the Welsh Cup with a three nil win over Cwmbran Celtic at the Deeside Stadium.

Our U18s followed suit with a three nil win over Rhosllanercrugog which moved the young side to second in the Clwyd East Mens League.

Sunday our U12, U14 and U16 sides kicked off their competitive futsal program with week 1 of 4 in competitive games against all North Wales Academy clubs.

Sunday saw a huge day of community action and academy games at The Quay 3G which began with nine junior league games which ran on the site from 9:00-12:00.

Unfortunately for the second week running our U13s were let down on an arranged fixture. This week Flint were unable to raise a side. We apologise again for this but luckily the side have a fixture this Friday and two teams in Sundays futsal festival also.

Our U15s hosted Flint Town United and fell to a two one defeat in a very high standard game of football. A huge well done to the three under 14s who stepped up and performed very well in the fixture.

Our under 16s travelled away to Walsall for another great pro club experience falling to a narrow four two defeat, with a number off great performances on show.

The weekend was complete with our under 19s recording a two nil win over Flint Town United in the Welsh Premier Development League to maintain second space just three points behind TNS with a game in hand.

Man of the match Joe Sullivan got the sides first goal with sixteen year old Jacob Barratt grabbing the second late on.

Huge well done as always to all sides for another great week of academy fixtures.
