The SKINNY on Bangkok Tour
Organized, professional and motivated are three words that one could use to describe Manila Nomads as they arrived at the ground for the German All Stars Bangkok Tournament 2012 held last April at Thailand’s capital city.
However, if we are to be truthful – unorganized, leathered/hung-over and disinterested would probably fit the bill more appropriately.

Fund-raising Gourmet Night
As most members are aware, the club is incurring horrendous legal bills in order to protect our property as a field-based, non-stock, non-profit sports club.
