Connah's Quay Nomads FC are one of the top teams in Welsh Domestic football. 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.
