Gap Connah’s Quay land Norway side Stabaek Fotball in the Europa League
Gap Connah’s Quay have been drawn against Norwegian side Stabaek Fotball in the Europa League but who are they?
The Nomads will face Stabæk Fotball who are based in Bærum, an affluent suburb on the outskirts of Oslo – around 40 minutes from the airport.
The club was founded in 1912 and play their home games at the 7000 capacity Nadderud Stadium.
Like Nomads gaffer Andy Morrison, their current manager, Billy McKinlay hails from Scotland.
The former Scottish midfielder has been in charge of the Norwegian outfit since leaving Real Sociedad with David Moyes last season.
Last season saw Stabaek finish 3rd in the Tippeligaen, the Norwegian top division.
