Welsh Premier League runners up and Europa League qualifiers Connah’s Quay have today announced a reversion to their traditional club name.
The club will now be known as ‘Connah’s Quay Nomads’, removing the club sponsor prefix gap from the name.
‘gap’ was added to the club’s name in 2008 when the club came under new ownership, under which it reached Europe for the first time in the 2015/16 season before again qualifying for the Europa League by finishing second this season.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Nomads’ owner Gary Dewhurst commented: “At the recent Nomads Hall of Fame Induction ceremony, the 70 year old history of the Club and the generational links to the local community, impressed upon me the need to remove the commercial name tag of my company, gap personnel.
The success of The Nomads, in the Welsh Premier League and the UK-wide PR associated with our UEFA Europa League adventures, should be about Connah’s Quay the town, not gap.
It goes without saying that both myself and the company remain wholly committed to supporting the Club, its’ renowned Academy, The Quay 3G and The Quay Clubhouse and Cafe going forwards and I personally look forward to challenging TNS’ dominance in the Welsh Premier League.”
