This Saturday FC Nomads of Connahs Quay take a step into the unknown after qualifying for the first round of the Welsh FA Cup for the first time since formation in 2009.


FC Nomads take on Pwhelli at Connahs Quay High School from 2pm on Saturday 12th October.

Following great wins in the 1st qualifying round against Halkyn and then the 2nd round against Penmaenmawr Pheonix, they now take on a team in the third tier of Welsh football hoping for a victory to secure a place amongst the Welsh Premier league teams in the next round.

The team come into the game in a rich vain of form having won every game so far this season in both the league and cup.

They will have to be on top of their game to beat a team above them in the pyramid, but if history has taught us anything, teams shouldn’t underestimate FC Nomads. 

FC Nomads would love to have a bumper crowd to watch the game and support getting another Deeside team into the second round. Free entry and a full colour match day programme available. 

Who knows, if FC Nomads go through they could face Bangor City, TNS or even a local derby against Premier League leaders Airbus or maybe even a very local derby against Gap Connahs Quay.
