    Default Marília Atlético Clube - Inspiring Brasilian Youth

    Hello everyone I'm not Troy McClure but you may know me from such Youth Only Challenges as The San Marino Challenge. After 6 months and getting up to 2038 I've decided to stop playing as San Marino due to the tedious repetitiveness of the Sammarinese league & Europe failure however I came across MRT90's Brazilian Real Football Pyramid which goes down to Serie D + added levels of the state championships meaning loads of games which I like.


    Marilia Athletic Club is an association of sports city of Marilia , State of São Paulo , founded on April 12th of 1942 . Currently running for the Championship Series A3 and D Series Championship .

    History

    Their colors are blue and white . Currently, disputes the Series A-3 of the Championship and also the Series D of the Brazilian Championship . The club sends its games at the Stadium Bento de Abreu Sampaio Vidal, the popular Abreuzão .
    Founded by Benedito Alves Delfino named Business of Sports Club in 1942 , from July 11 of 1947 , is now called Marilia Atletico Clube. Interior Amateur Champion with only one year old in 1943 , professionalized in 1953 , and his first professional game was played against the team from Rio Claro , a 3-1 victory in the stadium Bento de Abreu .

    That same year, makes its debut in the Second Division Championship, inheriting the seat vacated by St. Benedict Athletic Association, also of Marilia. At that time, both teams fought the attention of local fans, but not often confronted in professionalism. Instead, there was a "relay" between the two teams: one when the other was only competed in amateur and vice versa, and when the two competed in the professional, were often in different divisions.


    The beginning of a rivalry

    In the Paulista Championship in 1953 , his first tournament as a professional team, makes a good campaign, reaching the finals, where six teams (MAC, Northwest , American , Bragantino , Paulista and Railway ) played each other in turn and returno, and the champion would win the vacancy for access to elite Paulistão next season. After three rounds, the Northwest lead with six points, followed by Marilia who was five, and the game in the 4th round would be the confrontation between the two teams, the stadium Bento de Abreu in Marilia , on April 18th of 1954 , whistled Benedict Joseph Smith by the referee.

    The MAC would come out ahead on the scoreboard, but the referee began to harm the team maqueana, until such time that the Northwest has managed to turn the match to 2-1, the final score of the game. After the final whistle, fans maqueana, outraged at the events, invaded the field and began a pitched battle, fighting with police, as well as breaking the dependencies of the stadium. The story says that the fans stormed the referee's dressing room and found him hiding in a closet. From that moment the referee was beaten by the crowd. Fainted, was taken to the Santa Casa as dead, were such aggression. However, the balance of the game for him were three broken ribs and some bruises, being hospitalized for a few days.
    On account of this incident, the team was punished by the FPF with the loss of all points earned, as well as their games like Commander during the tournament would be played at the home of the adversary.

    A brief withdrawal

    The MAC Championship played in the 2nd Division until the year 1957 , but despite good campaigns, could not access the state elite. In 1958 , due to a financial crisis, the club return to amateurism. Already in 1965 , there is a brief return to professionalism, vying for the Championship of the 3rd Division, and in 1966 the club again becomes an amateur.

    The return to the pitch and the beginning of the achievements

    In 1969 , under the leadership of Pedro Sola, then that would become the club president, a group of citizens marilienses return the MAC professionalism. Already in 1971 , the team can access the Paulista elite football, becoming the first team from city to compete in the First Division. This fact led to a period of seven days of festivities in the city of Marilia.

    From 1972 , the MAC would dispute the Paulistinha that this is a league that ranked six clubs who played the Paulistão against the big teams. In the years 1972 and 1973 the MAC was unable to this classification, even with the strengthening of the striker Serginho Chulapa in 1973 . However, in 1974 , the first year of presidency of Peter Peacock, the team won the Paulistinha, earning the right to play the championship in 1975 against the big teams in the state. In the bargain, was also the champion trophy Ermírio Jose de Moraes Filho , a tournament created by the FPF for the purpose of giving activity for the Special Division clubs that were declassified.

    To close with a gold key to the 70s, the club became champion of the Copa São Paulo de Futebol Júnior in 1979 , after beating Fluminense by 2-1 in the final, revealing some great players such as goalkeeper Luiz Andrade and also the half Jorginho , which enshrine the team Palmeiras in the decade of 1980 .

    Challenges and difficulties

    The Marilia remained in the elite Paulista Football until 1985 , when, after a terrible campaign, he was demoted to the Second Division, along with his arch-rival Northwest . The financial difficulties faced by the team during this period also were instrumental in his downfall. The main highlight of the team this season was the top-right Joe Guimarães , a player who came to be successful later in the Sport Club do Recife , and always remained in the memory of the fans maqueana. In 1987 , the club nearly won the state return to the elite, which did not occur primarily in a game against St. John Plant, now St. John Union of Macaws in refereeing controversy, the game ending in a draw which has benefited the team.

    Your return occurred in 1990 , where he was promoted to Group 2 called the First Division. In 1992, the attacker Kel was the vice-League top scorer Paulo, the same year that striker Guilherme was revealed by the MAC, the team being sold to St. Paul . In 1993 , the club came to play in Group 1, consisting of the top teams in the state. However, in this same year, the club was relegated to Group 2. And to make matters worse, in 1994 a reorganization made ​​by the Paulista Football Federation Championship in the division. Thus, group 2 has become the current series A2, equivalent to the Second Division. Soon after, the club continued its downward trend with the downgrades occurred in 1994 for the A3, and in 1996 for Series B1-A, equivalent to the Fourth Division of the Paulista Football. After three years in this series, won the club return to Serie A-3 in the year 1999 , after the runner-up in Series B1-A. A3 In 2000 the club had a reasonable year, not enough to access the next division.

    A major player in the decade of 1990 was the quarterback of the Marilia German . The player has become a symbol for the fans maqueana, due to their race and determination. He began his own career in MAC 1988 , and thereafter was present in all accessions won by the club during the period, as well as in difficult times, as in the years played in the Fourth Division, ending its cycle at the club in the campaign of 2002 .

    Back to large campaigns

    American Sport The company, chaired by Luiz Antonio Ferreira Duarte, the popular-Cai Cai, took over administration of the club in the year 2001 . This year, after a terrible start of the championship, the team managed to finish the Series A3 Paulista in 5th place. This championship guarantee access for Series A2 only two clubs, but thanks to the creation of the League Rio-Sao Paulo , opened three additional places of access, ensuring access to the MAC to the Second Division in 2002.

    Already in 2002 , winning the MAC won the title of the Series A2 Paulista , making and breaking the first end of a championship in their fields, faced against a team from Francana . After a defeat by 2-0 in the city of Franca , many already gave access to Francana for granted. Even the MAC coach resigned, bringing to the ultimate end coach Luiz Carlos Ferreira, King of access. However, with goals from Edu Esídio , Andrei fault, and Nei Bala , MAC won the victory 3-0 in the return match in Marilia , ensuring access won his third in just four years. And best of all with a team that charmed with several outstanding players in domestic football, and that also would stand later as the quarterbacks Grotto and Andrei , the left-back Rossato , steering wheels Perdigao and John Mark (the silver- -house), the half Straw (player of São Paulo at the time of the Tele Santana ), and strikers Edu Esídio , Nei Bala and Sandro Oliveira . The city stopped to watch the games.

    In the second half of 2002 , capping the year, can access the Series B Championship, winning the runner-up of Series C among the 61 participants, generating a huge emphasis on a national level not only for the team and for the city of Marilia . This access came with another flawless campaign, including the same player base of the state title of 1st half, with some reinforcements as half Romerito and Luizinho Vieira .

    On his return to elite Paulistão in 2003 the MAC gets a poor campaign in the first phase. The recovery came at the wheel (tournament played by teams disqualified in the 1st phase, aiming to define the demoted). The club finished the tournament in 11th place among 21 participants. But the best was yet to come.

    In the second half of 2003 , would make his first appearance at the Championship Series B . Coach Paulo Comelli , leads the team to qualify in 7th in the first phase. In the second phase, the club seeks to coach again Luiz Carlos Ferreira, and ends this phase 1 of its group, ahead even of the traditional Botafogo , going to compete in the square end with the very Botafogo , the Palmeiras and Sport where these two teams reach the access to the elite of the Brasileirão. But right in the square the club failed to do well, finishing the tournament in 4th place. With over a memorable campaign, and a great team, the city stopped in the days of the games that filled Abreusão ​​to see players like striker Basil and midfielder Joey , the major highlights of the team in the league.

    In 2004 , the team did a good participation in the Championship , finishing in 10th place, including a victory over Palmeiras 2-1 pro, with two goals from veteran striker Sorato . The classification for the next stage was not reached after stumbling at the last round against the West for Itápolis . In the Brazilian Series B , the team again made ​​a good campaign, complete with a historic rout by 7-1 in Sport , in the second round of the Championship, finishing the first phase in 6th place, but could not get the much desired access elite. Highlight for attackers Maurílio and Wellington Amorim , in his first year at the club.

    The MAC gets a good start in the Championship of 2005 , coming to occupy the 5th position, including a victory by 1-0 over the Corinthians (who had just hit the so controversial partnership with MSI ) in Abreusão ​​, goal of centroavante Frontini , highlight the team in the competition. During the championship, the team's fall production, just after a rout suffered by 6-0 to the team of Sao Paulo , and thus closes the Paulistão in 12th place.

    In Series B of the Brazilian in 2005 , with the help of goals from Catanha , Wellington Amorim and Ricardinho , speed Anaílson and experienced wheel Fernando assuming the midfield of the MAC, the team finished the first phase in 2nd place, leaving behind only Team Santa Cruz . But the team failed to qualify for the Quadrangular Final of the competition, the elimination from the Nautical and Portuguese . In this league, is one of the biggest upsets ever pushed by MAC, which lost the game to Guarani in Campinas until 43 minutes into the second half by 2 to 1, and so was waving goodbye to the second stage of the championship. But the team scored two goals and turned the game to 3-2, ensuring survival.

    Almost scares in Paulistão and Access in Brazil

    Undoubtedly, the Championship of 2006 was full of excitement for the fans maqueana. After an irregular campaign throughout the championship, reached the penultimate round MAC almost relegated, needing to win their two games and hope for a great combination of results. In this penultimate round, the MAC did his part by winning the already lowered Mogi Mirim away from home for 2-0. Thus, the team reached the final round second from bottom, rooting for slips of the Portuguese Santos , who would play against the White River in American , the Portuguese , who face the Saints in Belmiro , and the Guarani , who faced the same Mogi Mirim the which the MAC had won the previous round. Besides these results, he had to beat St. Benedict of Sorocaba , a result that MAC got two goals from top scorer with Wellington Amorim , including being one of these goals a slam dunk, after applying a hat on a defender and dribble the other, playing the output of the goalkeeper St. Benedict . After the end of the game, here's the surprise that the crowd expected maqueana: defeat of two Portuguese, and, most unexpectedly, the draw of the Guarani at home to relegated Mogi Mirim 0-0 by decreeing the output of the MAC zone relegation in the last round. Feast of fans and players in Abreusão ​​by permanent team in First Division Championship in 2007.

    After the scare of the Paulista Championship, played in the MAC Championship Series B , the first with the regulations of consecutive points, getting the 9th place. As highlights, goals from Wellington Amorim and Fabiano Gadelha , the tireless Fernandão in midfield, and also some players coming out of the base, as the defender Gum , which was eventually loaned to the International of Porto Alegre .

    The Paulistão 2007 was not the best for Marilia. With other irregular campaign, such as winning the Sao Bento in Sorocaba by 6-1 and soon after losing by 4-1 to Bragantino home, the team was in the middle of the table, in 14th place.

    For the Brazilian Championship , the team brings back the coach Paulo Comelli , and strives to build a great team. Even with the exemption of the great idol Fernando , returning to St. Andrew , come to the great team players, as the left- Vicente , steering wheels Deda , Hernani and Luciano Santos , midfielder Diego and striker Leandro . This all added to the remaining Fabiano Gadelha , Wellington Amorim , goalkeeper Julio Cesar , the silver-the-box Wellington Silva , finally, a great team, which needed to demonstrate this in the field.

    And at first succeeded. During the first round, remained in the MAC G4 for a while. The only setback was the loss of 6 points per squad irregular defender Leandro Camille in the 3rd round. After a few rounds, Paulo Comelli went to Sao Caetano , leaving in its place the auxiliary Jorge Rauli . With it, the Tigers reached 10 games unbeaten, with 10 of those games were won nine of them. This sequence was broken by a defeat at home to Coritiba by 2-0. Then Raulli asked to return to the position of assistant coach, returning coach Paulo Comelli . It was there that Tiger lost its regularity, losing precious points in the Abreuzão , and therefore saying goodbye to the dream of access. The most painful for the fans maqueana was that the MAC in the final classification was only 6 points behind 4th-placed Victoria .

    This league also mark the final year of American Sport investing directly in Marilia.

    Rebaixamentos and Present Moment

    In 2008 , there was a true renewal in the cast maqueano. And the first sign that things would be difficult to come Paulistão , where the team escaped relegation only in the later rounds. The only light was this championship victory over then-champion Brazil, Sao Paulo , by 3-2, with great performance of the half Camilo .

    In Brasileirão , another campaign irregular ups and downs. And despite spending the whole championship out of the relegation zone, the Tigers ended up getting it in the penultimate round after a 2-1 defeat to Bahia . In the last round, the MAC has done his homework, winning the Ceará by 2-1 in Abreusão ​​, with two goals of the lateral Bruno Ribeiro , but it was not enough, because, with the victory of America-RN on the Corinthians in Natal , being that the Corinthians played the game with a team mix of reserves and juniors, the MAC has suffered relegation to Serie C in Brazil. The only highlights of the team was excellent goalkeeper Giovanni , originating in the lower grades, the flywheels John Victor and John Mark , also from the base, and half Altair , which, despite being injured for much of the year, made ​​good matches, as the draw with Corinthians in match played in London , where, according to President Jose Roberto Duarte de Mayo , the club could higher income.

    In Paulistão, 2009 , one more blow. The club were relegated to Serie A2, 2010, even with players like Giovanni , John Victor , Fabiano Gadelha and Abuda . The consolation was the match against archrival North West for the penultimate round, where the MAC has downgraded its rival by winning 3-0.

    In the Series C, 2009 , the Tigers surprised and had a good campaign, but failed to qualify for the second phase by 1 point behind the Gauchos Caxias and Brazil .

    The year 2010 began with high hopes, but the Tigers do not get good campaigns. In the Series A2 Paulistão , only the 13th place. Highlights for the striker Leandro Love , vice-top scorer. Already in Brazil , was assembled a team with great players, including goalkeeper Sergio , Palmeiras great idol, and striker Basilio , who came to end his career in the MAC. But with a campaign pífia for only one point the Tiger was not demoted, falling to the Series D staff range .

    And the first half of 2011 , plus a demotion to the history of the MAC, this time of the Series A2 Paulistão for Series A3 Paulistão of 2012 with a campaign that earned him the pífia vice Lantern Group 1 Competition. And during the tournament there was a change in the presidency, where the leader Bob Mayo passed the baton to Sojinha , well-known politician in the city. However, after the championship, after a hotly contested election, the former president of the 90 Hely Bíscaro resumed the presidency of the club.

    The reflection of the disorganization of the administration reflected in the field for battle in the C series of the 2011 Brazilian team was relegated to the Brazilian Series D, 2012 , after losing at home to Macae , a game whose outcome was 6-4 and in which the Marilia needed only a draw to escape relegation. An important reason for this demotion was the resignation of coach only Edison and the presidency of Biscaro Hely, after the first defeat of the team, and the subsequent hiring of coach Tuca , who came from futsal. Thus, the team that fought for the ranking until the 6th round when they lost to the Ipatinga at home, was completely disorganized tactically, and in this way turned out to be somewhat easy prey for the opponents.

    The hope now is for the fans maqueana better days to come to the glorious Tigger.

    All of those physio's apart from the best are now unemployed, and hopefully I'll get the recruitment up a bit more mid-season, if the reserve match is anything to go by...it'll be pretty decent.

    Only in Brazil!



    As you can see, most of my staff are now unemployed and I brought in a few members of backroom staff who are "better qualified" so to speak.

    I also just beat the reserves 6-1 and got this goal from Paulinho from way into his own half!

    2011 Pre-Season





    Other than the massive win against the reserves then the results may look bad but we actually played verry well getting a draw against Bragantino who are 2 divisions higher than us, and the losses against Ponte Preta & Figueirense who are in the First Division, the highest Division in Brazil, we've also been given the title odds:



    We're expected to be promoted, I'm hoping to deliver but I'll also accept mid-table.

    South American football is crazy busy. I haven't played Brazil, but I did have a save last year in Argentina. I think your schedule is even more packed than I remember mine was!

    A decent first month, Paulinho scoring 4 braces in 5 games, for those wondering, Osvaldo Cruz are our feeder team.



    Our Junior Coaching has been increased to average as well, next month sees 6 State Championship games and the draw for the Brazilian Cup takes place on the 10th.

    6 games played, 2 wins, 3 draws, 1 loss and that's because both our main goalscorers are injured, Paulinho got injured in the first game of the month and is out out for another 3 weeks with strained knee ligaments. Also for some reason we weren't in the Brazilian Cup, hopefully that changes next season/

    A good first month, with the groups having just 5 teams in, it's almost either you're promoted, or you're relegated, we're currently in the only place where we remain in this division next season.

    July 2011





    Turns out after all that we're not promoted, only the top 2 teams in the final get promoted, and I lost in the First Round.

    September 20th - Youth Candidates

    We had no games in August and we have no games now until the Pre-Season so all that was left was the Youth Intake:







    Camilo has the potential to be a good First Division central defender in the future and since my Assistant has JPA 13 and JPP 17 he can't go too far wrong.

    I had a feeling that it was probably going to be playoffs, with 2 promotions from each of what were probably a lot of groups being unlikely, like the old 3rd Div setup, cracking youths though.

    Marilia AC - Terceirona Paulista & Fourth Division - 2011


    Terceirona Paulista - Playoffs


    Brazilian National Fourth Division - Playoffs



    A few big wins in the playoffs, evidently not for our team as we lost in the first round both times.


    Squad


    A squad that is very top heavy as we only have 3 senior defenders, and our strikers weren't too good as our top scored scored 8.


    Youth Players:


    Ismael (YP1a) - Played in 10 Under 18 games got 3 assists and an average rating of 6.85.


    Camilo (YP1b) - Played in 13 Under 18 games but only managed a 6.13 rating, his attributes raised near the end of the season but dropped off again right at the end.

    2012 Pre-Season





    Pre-season was again quite poor losing to our feeder team, thankfully we managed to at least pick up a win. Again we're favourites to get promoted so I'm hoping that we can go one step further than last season.

    A good month other than Camilo (YP1b) getting sent off in the only game we lost, he's also now injured for 2 weeks so misses 3 or 4 games.

    Thanks, the San Marino isn't over, it's just been put on hold until I leave school

    February 2012







    A good month sees us sitting in 2nd after we finished the month with 4-1-1, also a great solo effort goal I thought I should upload, watch it in 1080p for the best quality...obviously.

    Our strikers are having trouble hitting the back of the net and we end up with 4 draws this month but despite that, we still Qualified for the Quarter Final with 3 games to go!

    A great month, we just have the 2nd leg of the Final before we move onto the Fourth Division, we also have another one of those "Brazilian Goals" the 3rd goal of a 4-0 thrashing of Sertaozinho.



    I really like goals from distance so if I get any more I will be putting them on here.

    We won the final!! Unfortunately the form hasn't carried over into the 4th Division as we sit 2nd with 1-1-1 and as always, it's going to be close!

    This is my "Goal of the month" scored in the 3-1 win against Operario, in the 93rd minute by Rafael Gomes completing his hat-trick, he also scored in the 5th and 29th minute. Now to explain the goal;

    It was the 92nd minute, we were winning 2-1 and Operario had a corner so they brought there Goalkeeper up, they had a missed shot that my player managed to pass to Rafael Gomes who managed to well...deliver the goods!

    For the first time I've qualified for the Quarter-Finals I doubt we'll get any further since we go up against the unbeaten team from our group Corinthians (PR)

    A great intake as our strikers aren't too great and we also get a good DM through and both of their determinations are high so the only way is up.

    Marilia AC - Terceirona Paulista & Fourth Division - 2012


    Terceirona Paulista - Playoffs


    Brazilian National Fourth Division - Playoffs



    We won and...we won, winning both the Fourth Division and the Terceirona Paulista sees us get promoted to the National Third Division & the Sao Paulo Second Division next season.


    Squad


    The squad is still quite top heavy and we could you a couple of backup defenders and backup goalkeepers to come through soon.


    Youth Players:


    Ismael (YP1a) - Improved a lot thanks to 17 first team appearances getting an average of 7.02 aswell.


    Camilo (YP1b) - Again improved a lot and fits in well getting a solid 6.83 in 27 first team appearances.


    Bodao (YP2a) - He should be in the first team next year where he will definitely only get better.


    Allan (YP2b) - Again his training is helping and should have a couple of spells in the first team next season.


    Code:
    | Season  |        State Championship       |  Championship Position   |  National Division | National Division Position| Avg. Attendance | Season Tickets | Brazilian Cup | Copa Libertadores | Copa Sudamerica |

    2013 Pre-Season









    Another mixed Pre-Season with a good 2-0 win over Chilean side O'Higgins. We've also been expected to gain promotion from the state championship & the third division which I think is too far ahead of what I'm capable of achieving this season.

    Nope, there was that then Avoid Relegation and all the normal ones so there's not much hope so far.

    January 2013





    A good start sees us in the playoff places and I hope we can find the form to stay in these positions in the next 2 months.

    So the bookies think you have a decent chance of promotion, yet the board think you are destined for the drop - someone is going to be looking a bit sheepish at the end of the season

    Loving this save already after your San Marino game has been paused, I hope you keep getting youths like that through as well!

    Bodao looks like he could really be something.

    We've got 1 foot into the Final! For the last game I decided to change from the Brazilian 4-2-2-2 to an attacking 4-2-4 and it worked amazingly with us getting this goal which won goal of the month:

    Thanks Rancer, we had an average of 2,100 this season which is over double last season and over 5 times more than 2 seasons ago, atleast the bandwagon is going in the right direction!

    Hopefully noone will come for them, Vitoria in the Brazilian First Division tried snatching Camilo (YP1b) but I upped his asking price so nobody wanted him, hopefully it will stay that way too.

    Marilia AC - Sao Paulo Second Division & Third Division - 2013


    Brazilian Sao Paulo Second Division - Playoffs


    Brazilian National Third Division - Playoffs



    Our reputation has now skyrocketed next year we play in the Sao Paulo State Championship and the National Second Division so already we're nearly hitting the big time!


    Squad


    Hopefully next season our strikers score more, in 46 games our top goalscorer scored 8. Pretty bad if you asked me, even if there is alot of rotation.


    Youth Players:


    Ismael (YP1a) - averaging 7.24 and is improving dramatically!


    Camilo (YP1b) - almost averaging 7.00 and is most likely to be the first YP to get 100 appearances after 42 appearances this season.


    Bodao (YP2a) - Improving alot and is rotating with pretty much every other striker since we're still top heavy.


    Allan (YP2b) - 18 first team appearances averaging 6.91 pretty solid.


    Kasado (YP3) - Unable to play professionally until his 16th birthday which is on April 6th and only had a small impact in the Under 18's so far.

    A dreadful start sees us not getting any wins all month and puts us in the relegation zone.

    Still think you'll be able to pull out if it with plenty of time.

    A month that started well but then gradually got worse, we couldn't keep a clean sheet!

    Terrible. no wins, could this mean we go back to the Third Division next season? or will we get a great escape?

    We're down, next season we're in the Third Division, that is if the board don't sack me as they expected promotion..

    We scored the 2nd most amount of goals but we also conceded the most in the league but there is a small upside:

    Marilia AC - Sao Paulo State Championship & Second Division - 2014


    Brazilian Sao Paulo State Championship - Playoffs


    Brazilian National Second Division



    We did well getting to the Quarter Final of the State Championship as we were hitting way above our weight, it was the exact opposite story in the National Division as we see ourselves back in the Third Division next season.


    Squad


    Our strikers were scoring alot more, but we still need a stronger back 4 & goalkeeper.


    Youth Players:


    Ismael (YP1a) - Called up and received 6 Brazil U20 caps and was pretty solid in the league.


    Camilo (YP1b) - Also got called up to Brazil U20's and got 2 caps, still improving and has 115 league appearances already!


    Bodao (YP2a) - Starting to score some goals now but is still very inconsistent scoring 17 in 53 games.


    Allan (YP2b) - Not too sure about Allan, he was mainly used as a sub and only started 8 times all season.


    Kasado (YP3) - Same problem as Allan, we don't use DM in the tactic we only have CM and now that (YP4a) has come along it's going to be harder to get starts.


    Nilson (YP4a) - Made 3 starts already and got a goal in his 2nd game, all good signs so far.


    Mauricio (YP4b) - He's also turned 16 but due to our striker quality I've left him in the U18's so he can play and so far he's gotten 11 in 14.

    A minor setback this season but the youth coming through are incredible, particularly Nilson, I nearly had a heart attack when I saw his profile. Top division football will here in 2/3 seasons I think.

    Nilsson is insanely good for that age, a really good find for a club with started with Average youth coaching and recruitment!

    It is quite confusing but I think that I've finally gotten to grips with it though ;)
