    Default Start at the bottom - Finish at the top?

    Well, I've decided to try a career save, I've got England down to Level 8, France, Germany, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Italy and Spain loaded up plus players based in England, top clubs in Europe, current International players in Oceania and the Caribbean.

    So I start unemployed with previous experience as Semi-Pro and there are quite a few jobs available but I'm going to wait a few months and see if anyone approaches me.

    Well, it's now November still no offers so I have applied for all current vacancies and despite offers from Spain and Italy I have now joined the ranks of......


    CLITHEROE FOOTBALL CLUB

    Evo-Stik Northern League Division 1 North


    I had a decent offer from Sevilla Atletico but the North of England was calling me. Clitheroe are struggling near the bottom of the league, they had a Consortium takeover in July, there's a lot of wage budget available so I'll be looking at free transfers and loans to take the team up the league and I have signed a contract until the end of the season.

    The club are already out of the F.A Cup and F.A Trophy so my sole aim is to push up the the table. Updates will be monthly.

    Well, we've struggled this month, I have brought in a virtually brand new squad but we just cannot dominate games. There aren't many quality players who want to join a team near the bottom of the league. We need a experienced Centre Half which is very hard to find! I hope we can get some points in December otherwise I think I might lose my job!

    Pretty poor month, but at least you picked up in the last two games.

    What a better month that was, we are still lacking quality but we are within reach of the play-offs. It is now a whole new squad as most of the old one weren't even good enough for the reserves!

    We deserved 3 points over Wakefield but they scored 2 early goals which dented our confidence but I was impressed by sub striker David Graham.

    Incosistancy is the word of the month! Our home form is fine but away from home we are struggling and I have tried everything possible to change this but alas nowt!

    I love being at this club but I can honestly see me somewhere else in the Summer or even before unless I can tempt some loan signings in.





    Our best player has been Benjamin Martha, the player from Curaçao has played well but I really expected him to score more than he has

    At least you are steering clear of relegation. Decent win against Woodley.

    Yeah, I'm just not happy with the fact we can beat Woodley who are doing well then lose badly against a mid table team

    Another bad month, I'm really thinking about resigning and looking for work elsewhere. We really struggled at Garforth and were lucky not to lose by more,I'm going to give it another month before deciding on my future up North.

    I would! Your current side will need shuffling in the summer to get anything from next season!

    Well, after thinking it over all night I have decided to stick it out with Clitheroe, maybe stay until the end of the season and then see what's out there.

    Things go from bad to worse, I'm really hoping I can stay up to bring in some decent youngsters in the Summer, this club needs a total reshuffle, I thought I had bought in good players but I was seriously wrong, the sooner the season finishes the better in my opinion!





    Next season there will be more in depth write ups on my updates, just trying to go through this season as quick as I can!

    We just managed to stay up by one point, it was a tense game at Durham and when they scored in the 88th minute I was thinking the worst. 90% of this team will be released as I look at bringingin some decent teenagers to move us up the league, roll on Pre-Season!

    How did Spennymoor Town get on or have you not got the leagues down to that level?

    Atleast survival means you can push on and hopefully make a better season of it next.

    SEASON 2012/2013





    Dan BHTFC - August 2012 - Clitheroe F.C

    Evo-Stik Northern League Division 1 North




    Well, I couldn't have asked for a better start. We start games slowly but I have managed to bring in some decent Youth players released from local Football League clubs, with most coming from Accrington and Tranmere. I was really surprised to get Jake Kirby, he is a real talent and I hope I can get him under a Part-Time contract soon. The attendances have gone up by 100, I'm happy about that because it means extra income. The F.A Cup is up next and a trip to Burnham Ramblers, we should progress but it is the F.A Cup!

    SEASON 2012/2013






    Dan BHTFC - September 2012 - Clitheroe F.C

    Evo-Stik Northern League Division 1 North




    Not a good month at all, we are leaking too many goals and then falling apart completelym a change of tactics maybe on the cards.



    The F.A Cup with Budweiser



    I fully expected the win the first 2 matches but the 3rd was a surprise, we dominated from the start, I changed from a 4-1-2-3 formation to a standard 4-4-2 and it seems to have worked, a few more wins would be nice in this competition then a nice 1st Round tie!

    Thought I'd stick everything into one picture! We went out the F.A Cup, unfortunatly we conceded late, I thought we deserved a replay. In the League we played 4 and won 4, I really hope we can keep this up. We played Bamber Bridge 3 times in a row, losing once, luckily in a Cup game, it's the points I'm looking for now!
    We also got through the F.A Trophy, a good run in this would be good for the coffers.

    Another good month, we are going nicely in the League and also beating Blue Square North side Hinckley in the F.A Trophy was good. We are still in 3 cups, I'm hoping we can win one of them, this club needs silverware. My team is awfully young, I'm still picking up the Football League Youth castoffs who are almost there for my first team, next year I expect the average age of my squad to be 20 years old.

    Apart from the blip at Farsley I'm happy with our performances. Barrow outplayed us and we deserved to go out. We are still up for the League title but Fylde are playing really well. My balance currently stands at -£75,000, it's been like that for 6 months now, I'm not too worried.

    Plodding along again, still not quite able to overtake AFC Fylde. I've been linked to Fleetwood and Stockport, nice to know I'm being noticed but I've added some leagues so I'm hoping to get a good job in Europe.

    Oh dear, we have a wobble! No win in the League this month but we progressed in 2 League Cups, I'll be happy if we reach the Play-Offs at this rate! We have had loads of shots on goal but very few on target, it might be time to tweak my tactics slightly. Bedlington Teriers scored in injury time, we need to win our games in hand if we are to challenge for the automatic promotion spot.

    Inconsistent month, we are top of the table with 5 games to go, it's going to be tough but I have brought in Leam Richardson who was released from Accrington Stanley to add a bit of experience and it has helped the team. We are through to the Division Cup final and the League Cup Final, hopefully we can get some silverware.

    Evo-Stik Northern League Division 1 North





    Well, I don't know how we managed it but we won the league on the last day. 3 late goals secured our win at Salford and now the club can look forward moving up a step in the Pyramid. We lost the Division 1 Cup but we won the big one in front of a record crowd at Shawbridge. I'm not sure on my future, I might stay for another year and see how it goes unless there is an offer I can't refuse as I'm still being linked to Blue Square Premier sides.

    Here is my squad, our goalkeeper played every single game, he won me points, he lost me points but at least he didn't get injured!

    I have moved into International management when I got offered this poisition.......













    INDIA UNDER 19'S


    This is the team I have to chose from, I see this a a good step for me to get my reputation increased. In a couple of years it will be the main Asia Under 19's Championship Qualifiers so i will be trying to get a decent team together for then. There is some quality but not a lot but I'm hoping more regens come through.

    I'm hoping he can improve more, could be a player for the future if he gets goals, I could get a bit of money for him too!

    Bad news for Everton fans!

    It just a virtual reality, in other words a game

    Couldn't resist, sorry

    Dan BHTFC - August 2013 - Clitheroe F.C

    Evo-Stik Northern League Premier Division





    We made a brilliant start to the season, a new look team with lots of youngsters is doing well for me, we haven't conceded yet and I'm hopeful of a decent F.A Cup run this season, let's hope we can keep it up!

    James Dowling is slowly being blooded into the team, he needs a bit of confidence so I have been bringing him on for 20 minutes at the end of games.

    Dan BHTFC - September 2013 - Clitheroe F.C

    Evo-Stik Northern League Premier Division





    We started the month badly but we shook off the bad result and carried on where we left off in August. The F.A Cup tie was easy, we had 82% possession at half time, we should have scored more but I brought on some youngsters for the experienced players. Our plethora of Norweigians are making the transition into English football well, some look too good for this team, I hope we can hold onto them.

    A busy month but we got the results we wanted. I wasn't too bothered about the Lancashire Senior Cup so stuck in my Reserve team. We have made it through to the last Qualifying Rund of the F.A Cup where we face Blue Square Premier side Dover, I really hope we can put on a good show but it would be even better if we got through into the first round!

    Well, we had a good F.A Cup run but League 1 Yeovil were too good, oh well, maybe the 3rd round next season! In the league we are doing ok, we seem to have stopped being able to finish off teams. Next month I want us to extend our lead at the top of the table.

    Well, I thought we had a good chance to get through but we lacked quality, anyway, we finished second bottom of the group and the India F.A gave me my P45, oh well, I enjoyed International management and I cannot wait to come back into it.

    We won the league easily, into the Blue Square next season, I hope my chairman can put some money in or we get taken over as we need to strengthen and put players onto Part-Time contracts. I hope to get a mid table finish next season and hopefully we can get better!

    We have made a grewat start to the season, another promotion could be on the cards if we keep this up. Once again I have looked at the released Youth players from local League clubs and I have a few for the future.

    Another good month, we made it through the first stage of the F.A Cup which is good financially for us this season as we look to maybe turn Professional at some point. In the league we had a blip at Gainsborough but other than that I am happy with this team.

    We made it through to the 1st Round of the F.A Cup after a good win against a very strong Welling side in the last qualifying round and we now have a trip to Margate to look forward to. In the league we got hammered at Halifax and Kettering also showed us how good you have to be to play in this division. I hope in November we can get more points on board.

    Bad month in the League but we have made it into the 3rd Round of the F.A Cup. We held on against Blue Square Bet Premier side Mansfield who outplayed us but we held our nerve and now hoping for some decent money in the 3rd Round.

    F.A Cup 3rd Round: Clitheroe vs. Manchester City!

    Still doing alright in the league. Play-Off's would be a great achievement.

    That should be a money spinning tie for you...but would have been 10 times better away from home.

    We had an OK month in the league, we do lack experience in defence and we are getting found out too easily. James Dowling is improving every month, I think it won't be long until a higher placed club puts in an offer we cannot refuse.

    We lost against Manchester City but we played so well. An own goal in the first half put us behind and another goal in the second half put us out but we showed how well we can play. In the league we were beaten twice, with this form we are going to finish in a Play-Off place at the end of the season.

    Sutton put us out the F.A Trophy but we deserved a win. Blackburn were just too strong for a Reserve/Youth side we put out but we picked up 7 points in the league which I'm happy with.

    Well, Gainsborough had a horrible run of form and we needed to win our last game and hoped that Corby and Gainsborough both lost, which they did! Blue Square Premier here we come!






    Next season I hope we can survive, that's all I'm looking for.

    START OF SEASON








    Dan BHTFC - August 2015 - Clitheroe F.C

    Blue Square Bet Premier



    In what was a tough set of fixtures to start the season with I thought we did well against 5 ex Football League clubs. The Hereford game we should've won but they scored late on. Crowds are up which is good and we move into a new stadium next season which is twice as big as Shawbridge so hopefully we can keep improving the fanbase.

    Another good month but disappointed to lose at Havant, we really didn't take our chances. James Dowling is proving what a good find he is, I really hope we can keep him here for a while but I don't think it will be too long until a Legue One/Two team come knocking.

    Blue Square Bet Premier



    A mixedmonth of results, Lewes beat us and deserved to as we were awful. We have made it into the 1st Round proper of the F.A Cup as well with a less than satisfactory win at home to Isthmian side St. Neots.

    That first season seems out of place.

    Well, disappointed we went out the F.A Cup to a lower league side but we are still going well in the league which is the main thing

    Another good month in the league, attendances are slowly rising and hopefully we can keep top of the league but I need to hang on to my best players if we are to challenge for the title.

    Dan BHTFC - January 2016 - Clitheroe F.C

    Blue Square Bet Premier




    Out of the F.A Trophy, losing at Plymouth and only 1 win, not a good month for the Blues! James Dowling is still scoring but he isn't improving which is a little worrying.

    Clitheroe - Blue Square Bet Premier - 2015/16

    It was our first season in this division, I was hoping for mid table security.

    League Table
    League Positions Graph

    Well, I didn't expect us to get promoted but we were slightly stronger than Hereford in the Semi Finals and again were better than Truro in the Final, Football League here we come!

    F.A Cup - Disappointed to go out early, a bit of money from a run would've been good.

    F.A Trophy - Another early cup exit.

    Lancashire Senior Cup - Blackburn proved too strong.

    Squad - We have a decent squad, I'll be looking at getting rid of the fringe players and freeing up some wage budget.

    Finances - We are doing well financially however with what looks like pro football coming up it could be an expensive season.


    Key Player Profiles:

    James Dowling - another great season from the striker, will hopefully improve in the Football League.

    Loris Karius - the German goalkeeper had a good season, anothe rone I hope can improve.

    Othmane El Amrani
    - had a good debut season after being released by Arsenal Youth.

    stunning work to get into the Football League! And to think you were considering leaving Clitheroe at one point. Hopefully you can continue this fantastic work. It would be stunning to see you getting into the Championship then possibly even the Premier League with Clitheroe!
