The Nomads are pleased to announce that the Club will be establishing the Connah's Quay Nomads Hall of Fame, with the launch ceremony scheduled for Thursday 20th April at The Quay Clubhouse and Cafe starting at 18:00.
The Hall of Fame will be prominently displayed at The Quay 3G Clubhouse with the opening taking place tomorrow.
An initial group of "Hall of Famers" have been selected to launch this initiative, followed by new inductees at the end of each future season.
All Hall of Famers will receive a commemorative gift and have their names enshrined in The Nomads' history books.
Nomads Owner, Gary Dewhurst commented;
"Having recently visited and sponsored the International Boxing Hall of Fame in New York , I thought it fitting to launch a similar local initiative for a club that recently celebrated its' 70th anniversary.
I don't think the North Wales community and Welsh football hierarchy in general fully appreciate the historic reputation of this club and the commitment to youth football development that has passed through generation to generation.
The story of TG Jones is incredible and whilst I accept that he went on to successfully manage our current WPL rivals, Bangor City, without him, maybe Connah's Quay Nomads wouldn't exist.
If anything, it will give the 250 kids involved in our Academy a history lesson!"
All academy players are asked to arrive at The Quay Clubhouse and Cafe for no later than 18:00.
To confirm their will be no training tomorrow at the Deeside Leisure Centre for any of our sides.
Following these presentations all sides will then train following 19:00-20:00 on The Quay 3G and Connah's Quay High School grass pitches.
All players are to arrive in the following playing kits. All sides will then be having photos for press release with all of the Hall of Fame winners.

Under 10s - Red Home Kit

The above mini sides will play each other in in house friendlies on The Quay 3G from 19:00-20:00 following the ceremony.

Parents are also welcome to attend the inductees into the Hall of Fame in the clubhouse prior to training sessions.
A big night for the football club to celebrate the outstanding work and commitment to the club by a number of fantastic people who fully deserve their place in the Hall of Fame.
An opportunity for all at the academy to attend and thank some great people who have paved the way for current players opportunities and the progression of the football club.
We look forward to seeing all players, coaches and parents tomorrow evening.
