Following a fantastic pre season campaign of just under 20 games and 30 plus sessions over July and August our two Nomads Academy Coleg Cambria sides college fixtures have been released.
Going into the fifth year of the scholarship programme, following being in category three and two leagues we look forward to playing the category 1 league this year and in doing so being the only college in North Wales to play in this division.
The category 2 league which our under 19s/A team played in last season will now be the league our under 18s/B side will now represent the club and Coleg Cambria in.
After four years of progression and developing our football scholarship program we are so pleased and proud that our two sides will now play their Wednesday college fixtures in the two highest league available to them.
This has been a tremendous journey by all previous staff, players, club and college over the four years to get to this point and create even more opportunities for the next generation of Nomads Academy Coleg Cambria scholars in years to come.
They will be the most challenging leagues we have ever competed in, but as a club we look forward to the great challenges, fixtures and opportunities for further development for all of our young scholarship players.
Our under 18s/Scholars B fixtures have been uploaded onto the teams page and can be seen on the following link:
