KOR Energy proudly appointed main kit and pitch sponsor for Chester Nomads
History of Chester Nomads
In the summer of 1902, a group of teenagers organised a few friendly football games for the coming winter. By October 1904, the first occasion for which written records exist, the club seems to have had an established fixture list, but neither a name nor a ground! Hence the name, NOMADS, decided upon during a train journey home after a match in Manchester, seemed entirely appropriate.The club was placed on a proper financial footing in 1906, and rules were drawn up. At first the club played in white cricket shirts, but soon took on the racing colours of the Duke of Westminster: Gold and Black; colours which have remained with Nomads for over ninety years – although now the gold has been modified to amber.
In 1913 the club moved to Boughton Hall, renting pitches from the Cricket Club, an arrangement which still continues, although we think that the right to graze sheep on the field is no longer part of the tenancy agreement!
Since that time the Nomads have gone from strength to strength, achieving success in local, county and national competitions, and, through the generosity of members in providing loans, being able to purchase our own ground in 1988.
Chester Nomads Association Football Club is among the oldest amateur soccer clubs in Chester, and is probably one of the biggest in England. Every Saturday we put out seven teams playing all over Cheshire, North Wales and Merseyside. The tradition of friendly football is maintained by four of the seven teams, while our First Eleven play in the Mid-Cheshire League, and the 2nd X1 and 3rd X1 play in the Chester & District League.
The quality of the club is emphasised by the large number of ex-professionals who have played for the Nomads and continue to join. We also play as far afield as Yorkshire, South Wales and London.
The vision for Chester Nomads for the 2016/17 season is to have:
- New barrier permanent pitch for league teams
- Juniors thriving with 13 teams in total
- Development of the clubhouse coming next winter to boost the participation and use of facilities.
KOR Energy want to drive to increase the profile and identity of the club including their new website and their new football kits for all ages.
Running amateur football at grass roots level is an expensive business and we have decided to help out with something that we feel is close to our heart.
KOR Energy are delighted to be proud sponsors of Chester Nomads for the 2016/17 season and long may it continue into the foreseeable future!
