The Nomads were formed in 1947 and were champions of the Leicestershire Senior League in the seasons 1951-52 and 1953-54. The following season the Club recorded it’s highest ever attendance of 4,500 against the Athenian League side Hayes in the 2nd round of the FA Amateur Cup. But just one year later the Club decided to join the Central Alliance. In 1966-67 the East Midlands Regional League was formed, mainly from Clubs in the Central Alliance, and of the six seasons the Nomads spent in this League, they gained a top four place in three of them.
Returning to the Leicestershire Senior League in 1973-74, Nomads became Division Two Champions at their first attempt and were promoted back to the top flight. After being runners-up in 1978-79, 1979-80 and 1980-81 they became Champions in 1981-82 and 1982-83. In 1990-91 just one goal put the Nomads behind the leaders.
In 1994-95 the Nomads created history by winning both the Leicestershire FA Senior Cup and the Junior Cup in the same season.
Following the change from the FA Amateur Cup to the FA Vase, Nomads have competed in the competition every season but one, and in 1991-92 they reached the 4th Round before losing to Diss Town. In 1995-96 they went one better by reaching the 5th Round, only three matches away from Wembley, following victories over Radford, Oldbury United, Shepshed Dynamo, Easington Colliery and the season’s favourites North Ferriby United. Collier Row however proved too strong. But after the season 1999-2000 when they reached the 3rd Round, their fortunes have declined.
Since the turn of the century, the Nomads have endured some disappointing seasons. But, manager Andrew Wardle brought about a change in fortunes in the last two seasons and the Nomads gained respectable 11th and 12th finishes.
Unfortunately, 12th place was not good enough to gain the Nomads promotion to the newly formed East Midlands Counties League. For much of the season the Nomads had been a top six side but defeats by opposition trying to avoid the wooden spoon proved to be their downfall. Despite the poor run in, the Nomads were only two points adrift of gaining promotion.
Season 2008-09 ended with Nomads gaining promotion from the Leics Senior League to the East Midlands Counties League. The reserves gained promotion from Combination division 2 to division 1.
We also won the Beacon Bitter Cup, The Rolleston Charity Cup and the Battle of Britain Cup.
Our first season 2009/2010 in the EMCL saw us finish last but our good reputation helped us not get relegated and we were to be in the EMCL for 2010-11. Andy Miller joined us and brought new players with him and in his first season finished a respectable 12th position.
This season Andy has registered all of his players from last season and Nomads are in the F.A Cup for the first time in their history. The Reserves avoided relegation and will play in Division 1 of the Combination.
