The Nomads


Deeside Stadium

Deeside Stadium - Flintshire


The Deeside Stadium is part of the Coleg Cambria (formally Deeside College) campus in Connah’s Quay / Cei Connah, and can be accessed through the college’s main entrance on the B5129 road. The ground is very near to the Connah’s Quay junction on the A548 and the iconic Flintshire Bridge that spans the River Dee and it can be seen from the ground. In terms of public transport, the ground is roughly central between Flint and Shotton train stations, meaning long walks would be required to reach the ground from either station. However, the 10/10A (Chester to Connah’s Quay or Flint) bus service and the 11 bus services (Chester to Rhyl) are very regular along the Flintshire coast road from either Flint or Shotton, and will stop directly outside of the college.

There is plenty of car parking available on the college campus, and hot food and drinks are served at the ground. As it is within college grounds, naturally alcohol is not sold although there are a couple of pubs within walking distance from the ground – the Sir Gawain & The Green Knight up Golftyn Lane (where the club’s 3G pitch is also located – next to the town’s high school) and The Halfway House (where the club’s supporters usually congregate) which is a 10-minute walk along the coast road (B5129) towards the town centre.


The club was founded in 1946 by former Everton and Welsh international, and town native, T.G. Jones, who wanted a club for youngsters in the area, before turning senior in 1948. Historically they have always been one of Flintshire’s strongest sides throughout the years, and have spent the most time in the top flight than any other Flintshire side.

The Nomads were both founding members of the Cymru Alliance and League of Wales, having won the northern second-tier title in two consecutive years in 2011 and 2012 after promotion was denied the first time. However, they are currently enjoying the best period in their history. They became only the third Flintshire side to win the Welsh Cup in 2018, before becoming Flintshire’s first national league champions by claiming the 2019-20 Cymru Premier title. In addition, they also lifted their second Welsh League Cup in the same season, to make it a double-winning campaign. Connah’s Quay then successfully defended their Cymru Premier title in the following season to ensure two consecutive titles under the management of Manchester City cult hero and former captain, Andy Morrison. The Nomads won their third Welsh League Cup in the 2021-22 season, eventually beating Cardiff Met University after a lengthy and nervy penalty shootout to give manager Craig Harrison his first trophy under his management.

Connah’s Quay is one of the few Welsh league teams to have won a European tie, having beaten Norwegian side Stabæk in the 2016-17 UEFA Europa League, and then famously Scottish club Kilmarnock in the 2019-20 edition of the European competition. They are also the first non-Scottish side to reach the final of the Scottish Challenge Cup, getting there in 2019.
