KINGSTONIAN SEASON NINE UPDATE - 2020/21
Season objectives - avoid relegation (achieved)
League Two -3rd and promoted
FA Cup - 4th round (6-3 away to Chelsea)
League Cup - 1st round
JPT - 1st round
Another over-achieving season and another promotion but not as champions this time. Never really troubled the top two in all honesty but still very pleased. Garry Beasant is again top scorer and my personal favorite ever youth player. Antonio Bengo won the League Two player of the season award and deservedly so. Championship clubs are sniffing around these two so I've signed them both up on longer term contracts.
No transfers but I have added more coaches since turning professional.
Forgot a screenie for my youth intake but only two really have any chance of first team football. They are Dominick Makengo (YP9a) and Richie Downing (YP9b).
Season 10 expectations:
My expectation - avoid relegation
Board expectation - avoid relegation
Media prediction - 24th
Think we will continue to score goals although defensively I am a tad concerned. Hoping for mid-table but avoiding relegation will do. These players do keep surprising me though. I find it particularly interesting that players not originally given a YP tag are now regular first teamers. I now have just four players over 23 and all of them will be leaving at the end of the season as they are being overtaken by the youngsters. I gave them one year extensions this year purely for tutoring. This years squad.
