Connah's Quay Nomads are looking to pull off one of the biggest results in their history on Thursday night as they take on Partizan Belgrade in Europa League qualifying.  

Andy Morrison's side stunned Scottish Premiership Kilmarnock in the previous round and even found themselves sharing their economy flight to Serbia with a bunch of Killie fans who had booked the trip before the second leg.  

Morrison has travelled with a full complement of players after a number of the part-time squad members successfully managed to swap their shifts in the office, on the building site and behind the bar.

Nathan Woolfe, who previously represented Jerez Industrial in Spain, Hednesford Town and Stockport County, was due to be on shift behind the bar on Thursday at the Bubble Room in Alderley Edge.

Few expected Nomads to stun Kilmarnock but once the result was secured at Rugby Park, Woolfe was pushed into action to get his shifts moved around. He is now working that shift on Sunday. 

As well as Woolfe, John Disney (sales director), captain George Horan (electrical engineer), Michael Wilde and Danny Harrison (college tutors and sports coaches) and Danny Holmes (owns his own football coaching company) have had to sort alternative work arrangements to make the trip.
