Hendon 2013/14 Season
Blue Square Bet Premier- 21st (Relegated) When Darren Currie sprung the surprise on me at the end of last year that he was retiring, i was livid as he added a touch of class to my left side of midfield. Chad stepped up this year, with 6 assists, 3 goals and an average rating of 6.88, he will be my main left winger next year and hopefully he will turn into a star.
Fa Cup- 4th Q Round - Canvey Island 3-4
FA Trophy- 2nd Round - Hayes and Yeading 1-3
I learnt a lot this season, success too early is not always a good thing. When it came to the league this year, the team was totally out of its depth and this is shown by the 87 goals we conceded. Our back four were terrorised and were just not ready for the step up to BSP. A few years may be needed in the BSS just to re-group and gel. I'm possibly taking a gamble, which may or may not pay off but a few of the older heads, that are on 1-1 and a half stars CA are gonna be let go allowing my youth to have a chance to develop.
Jon Lamb: Info - Report- This bloke was a youth player when i first came to the club, and got a few games last year where he was highly inconsistent, however this year he's started to shine and develop into my main striker. As you can see he is rated a good striker for the BSP and the potential to be a Leading L1 striker. I am worried that someone is going to bid for him though, as my assistant has said that he feels Lamb's progress is stalling due to needing a new challenge.
Simon Cox: One of few that managed to have a good average this year of 7.04 and was probably the only solid defender i have the rest have good potential but are few inconsistent and prone to mistakes.
Keke Darlington YP01a: Info Report - Only played 3 games this year, down to injuries and being poor when used. Will give the lad a chance more next year in the BSS, as i'm looking to give quite a bit of youth a chance next year.
Chad Watkins YP01b: Info Report -
Youth Intake: I decided to sign 8 of the youth intake this year as they had good potential and with me being in the BSS i believe i can give them more first team football. The player that stood out for me was Patty Moke (report card) with his CA of 2 stars, i decided to chuck him into the last few games and he didnt disappoint. He ended with 2 goals and an average rating of 7.04. I have decided to give him the tag YP02 for this crop of youngsters.
Squad: Pt1 Pt2
Finances: 4k in black
I haven't been able to improve my facilities due to me losing quite a bit of money every month.
My aims for this year are to bleed the youth in to the team and finish about mid-table.
However i don't know if my board will be happy with just that as my job was insecure due to the relegation.
