Nomads looking to push up the Kent County League, says manager Michael Marshall

Wednesday 18th May 2016

NOMADS manager Michael Marshall says the club have put in longer-term plans to improve their facilities at Four Elms Road.


The Edenbridge-based club finished their debut NRG Gym Kent County League Division Three West campaign in third-place after they defeated runners-up Welling Park 1-0 last night.

Nomads were playing Redhill & District League football last season but were promoted into the Kent County League and Marcus Upton’s fourteenth-goal of the season sealed the victory.

The club play their home games at Moweshurst Farm, which backs on to the Redhill-Tonbridge Southern railway line.

There is a brick-built building which houses a bar and dressing rooms, but there is no pitch perimeter fencing, dug-outs or floodlights.

“I’ve been here for about ten-years now,” said Marshall, who has now been manager for two seasons.

“All the time the club, the committee are always working hard to improve the club, improve the facilities.  They’re always open to suggestions from the management and everyone else in the committee so it’s looking good for the future.

“Long term, we’ve already spoken about it, not sure what sort of timescale we’re looking at but we’re looking to push up the leagues in the Kent County and eventually having a 3G training surface with a nice pitch, work on the pitch and maybe a dug-out and some stands on one side.

“I’m not sure what sort of timescale we’re thinking here but it’s definitely something to aim for the future.”

Meanwhile, the Kent County League closes on Saturday with the Premier Division fixture between Borden Village and Tudor Sports.

The game has been switched to Woodstock Park, Sittingbourne, Kent ME9 8AG, with a 14:00 kick-off.
