Connah's Quay Nomads are one of the top teams in Welsh Domestic football.
The club was founded in 1946 by TG Jones as Connah's Quay Juniors and changed the name to Connah's Quay Nomads ahead of the 1951-52 season.
The 2015/16 season saw The Nomads finish fourth in the Dafabet Welsh Premier League, while also reaching the semi finals of both the JD Welsh Cup and theWord Cup. As a result of the fourth placed-finish, The Nomads qualified for the UEFA Europa League Qualifying Rounds where they defeated Norwegian side Stabæk Fotball 1-0 on aggregate and were knocked out in the Second Qualifying Round 3-1 on aggregate by FK Vojvodina of Serbia. The Club continued that success throughout the 2016/17 season, again reaching the semi finals of the JD Welsh Cup, however the side improved on their league position, finishing as runners up with the best defensive record in the league, conceding just 24 goals all season. 2016 saw The Nomads, in partnership with FAW, open The Quay 3G at Connah's Quay High School. The facility is a state of the art 3G facility which allows The Nomads' First Team and Academy to train on a perfect surface no matter the weather.
A pivotal part of the football club's success, is the thriving and well-established academy program which, since its inception in 2009 from just one single U16s side under current Director of Football Jay Catton, now boasts teams at all age groups from U8s-U19s including a full-time scholarship programme in partnership Coleg Cambria.
Since 2010 over 35 players have played for the first team in competitive fixtures along with over 35 academy players having moved on to be signed by professional Football League and Premier League clubs.
The club is ever-present in the community working in local schools to engage young people in the local community as well as running girls only sessions, soccer tots and walking football programs.
