As we begin 2019, we take a look back at the first half of the season with first team coach Chris Blount.


"It's been quite an eventful season so far and an enjoyable one at that. When Tony (1st team manager) spoke to us in the summer about joining the coaching team at Anstey Nomads, I could see there was a lot of potetial around the place. The pitch was superb, good facilties and lots of great people who make the club run so well. After most of the previous team had left with last season's management, the goal was to put together a team who could secure a top 6 finish.


"Pre-season went well but we seemed to stutter a little at the start of the season. Following that we had quite a good run of results and an exciting FA Cup campaign. The club had never won an FA Cup match before this season so to win three games before exiting to a step 3 team was a huge achievement for everyone.


"The league games have been overall positive but with the team being almot entirely new, we have a lot to learn together before we can reach the level of consistency that we are striving towards.


"We now enter the second half of the season and whilst some are calling us contenders for promotion, we're aiming to secure that top 6 spot first and then we'll see what else we can do from there.


"A Happy New Year to all involved with the club and league."

Last week saw Anstey Nomads travel away to Melton Town to face the title favourites. The first half was evenly matched with both teams having chances but failed to convert. A couple of Melton players picked up yellow cards in the first half for some quite poor challenges which would cause them problems later on.


The second half started at a good tempo, much like the first half, with once again both teams creating chances. The breakthrough came for Nomads when James Hicks found space to execute a tidy finish past the Melton keeper. Cosmos Mathwasa produced the second goal with an energetic run which saw him round the keeper and tap the ball in.


Melton's challenegs again came to cause them problems after this point with two players being dismissed after receiving a second yellow card. After a disappointing draw with Irchester the week before, the win at Melton was the perfect response.


This week see's the Nomads back at home vs Long Buckby. Earlier in the season Anstey narrowly beat Long Buckby 4-3 away from home after being behind most of the game. Buckby sit towards the bottom of the table but have had some good results and will be keen to take points away from Cropston Road.
