The best way to keep up to date with Connah's Quay Nomads Academy


Nomads Academy Open Trials Announced 2017/18 Season

8 months ago By Jay Catton

Open trials for all under 8-16 sides will begin the first week in May 2017 for next seasons age groups.

Open trials are available to junior league players from across Wales and England, along with academy players who may play for other academies currently, and wish to join Nomads Academy for the 2017/18 season.

With preparations well underway for another exciting season ahead in 2017/18 it has never been a more exciting time for young and ambitious footballers to join the football club.

The academy has moved on 32 players in total to professional clubs from our program in just seven years.

With a first team who this season represented the Welsh Premier in the Europa League, another four academy players this season made their first team competitive debuts bring our graduation number up to 30!

Both of these stats are more than any other Welsh Premier Academy to date.

With a full timer scholarship program with Coleg Camrbia for our youth team players, a brand new clubhouse and half a million pound 3G facility there are lots of opportunities available for players to reach their full playing potential.
