MARLBOROUGH NOMADS F.C.

MARLBOROUGH NOMADS originated as the old boys side of Marlborough College in 1868. The college team itself was founded only six years earlier in 1861.

The Marlborough College side was second only to Rugby School in the influence they had on early Rugby Football. The college rules were very similar to the rules of Rugby School, upon which the first laws of rugby union were based, and in one respect were even more advanced as they excluded hacking.

MARLBOROUGH NOMADS disbanded in 1911.
