CLUB FOUNDER - TG JONES

Thomas George Jones, known to football followers as Tommy or simply "TG", was one of the greatest footballers to represent Wales and Everton FC. He was a centre-half of such stunning footballing ability, that no less than Bill "Dixie" Dean hailed him as the most complete player he ever saw.

After falling out with the Everton hierarchy he left English football to become a Pwllheli hotelier in 1950 - also becoming player-manager of the town's football team.

From 1957 he enjoyed a decade as manager of Bangor City - best remembered for three closely fought matches in the European Cup Winner's Cup against Italian giants Napoli.

What is less widely reported is that Tommy founded Connah's Quay Juniors FC in his hometown in 1946. Initially an under-19s side, it soon expanded to include an adult team. To reflect the changes to the club, it changed its name to Connah's Quay Nomads in 1952, playing at the Halfway Ground. Tommy died in 2004, aged 86 but, 60 years on from its formation, his brainchild continues to thrive. A plaque in Connah's Quay Town Hall celebrates his contribution to the town.
