FC United of Manchester - Season 4 - 2015/16
Finally, we got off to a good start. We were in our around the play offs all season, in 2nd place at best. Two streaks of three losses with us failing to score during the spring left us in 7th place in the end. A very frustrating year as I felt we should have clinched a play off spot but it was not to be
Not the best intake really. One player stands out though and has walked into the first team during the last few weeks. He is also tagged as Kristian Gilks - YP8
A few of the previous tags that have continued to improve...
Gethyn Porter - YP2 - A good and solid year, but I'm waiting for him to really dominate midfield for me.
Tom Broadhead - YP3 - Is still showing great promise, but way too many injuries this season which have stalled him a bit.
Mick Huntington - YP5 - Solid defender who had a good year but made a few too many mistakes...
We've had an additional junior coaching upgrade and nothing more. Our junior coaching is now excellent. This has caused our finances to go into red figures though. We do have a few good friendlies set up that should bring us back to black though.
Player of the year
Brett Harper - YP4. Really blossomed this year after struggling last season. Dominated our attack and was third among the goalscorers in the league. I have two other young guns that should develop nicely for next year and provide us with more options.
Youth player of the year
Same as above.
FA Cup - Forget about it...
FA Trophy - Same story...
Finally I think we will be able to really push for the play off spots and maybe even promotion. I am fed up with this league now and believe my players are ready to make the step-up. I hope I can manage them well enough though...
