Welcome to the ultimate test of youth, at best it's 21 seasons of back-to-back promotions before we hit the top. Due to the amount of leagues I have only loaded Northern Ireland as playable but all of England, France, Germany, Italy & Spain as view-only but with all players from top division clubs in Europe loaded.

Now, as for why I want to do youth only in Northern Ireland. Win the Champions League? Yea that would be great but my aim is to topple Linfield. Linfield are the club with the most titles and silverware in Europe and I want to slowly catch up to them!

sounds hilariously chaotic.

how fitting for you!

Thanks vara!

I may have to start over once I finish work, played the first two league matches and it seems that the league has no sorting rules other than alphabetical order since we're in 2nd with 6 points and a goal difference of +12 whilst league leaders, Agape B, have 6 points and a goal difference of +5.

I will be starting over, just going through the editor file and tiers 9-22 have no sorting rules so I'll add them in. I want to try and stay with Village FC since they actually have a small social media presence.

2022/23 Pre-Season

I don't think we'll be keeping many clean sheets but I'm happy with how pre-season went with us going through in two cups.

Predicted last, just how we like it. :lol:

A great win over Riverdale 2 in the Junior Cup 3rd round which is now the only cup we're left in. Somehow we are still top of the league and will stay there even if Village win their game in hand!

Another big win in the league over struggling Glenavy II but our final cup run comes to an end as we lose out to 8th tier side Derrychara Utd which tells me that once we start getting promoted there shouldn't be much stopping us!

2022/23 Youth Candidates

Okay, this is actually a really good intake! But let's see what we have here.

Dan is immediately the best goalkeeper, not that that was going to be difficult.

Before this only one of the four players had an average of above 27 so this is definitely a good starting point.

I will be following as always!

I just got back to playing FM as well, after a three month break. And I thought I was crazy as I started in the 15th tier of Italian football, but this is on a whole different level!

What is the player count after the youth intakes? I'm currently at 225k players in my save, when I started it was around 125k :idiot:

What the ****, does Northern Ireland actually have 22 tiers? :eek:

Well the Belfast League does feed into the Down Area league when they should be along side each other so that would take it down to 20 tiers but other than that, it appears to be that way!

Our route to the top should be Belfast & District Division 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, NDAFL McCalls Division 2, 1, Premier, DAWFL Division 2, 1, Premier, NAFL Division 2C, 2B, 2A, 1C, 1B, 1A, Premier, Lough41 Premier Intermediate League, Lough41 Championship and finally Danske Bank Premiership. :lol:

Cheers Warg, appreciate it! I did want to see someone play using that database! We started out with 44,000 players and we're now at 46,000 players. How many seasons in are you? Plus there's like 3,000 more clubs in Italy. :lol:

Just the one league game this month, losing to 3rd placed Carnmoney who also started in the 22nd tier and it pushes Kilwee ahead of us whilst we're also through in the County Antrim Junior Shield where we'll face Albion Star in the next round, they play in the Belfast & District League Division One, three tiers above us.

Back-to-back 3-1 away defeats in the cup which is a bit disappointing since Ballysillan II are in the division below us but now we can focus on the league where we're now five points inside the promotion zone.

You are mad doing this haha

But what i find in these type there isn't much of a difference between the last 10 tiers and you will find this in Northern Ireland perhaps more 

Cheers oche!

I also expect this, with the top tiers of Northern Ireland having such a low reputation it shouldn't take too long for me to get to the upper echelons.

It looks pretty good again with the goalkeeper looking to be the worst prospect.

It turns out with most of the positions in the spreadsheet I had the attributes in the wrong order, so here's how it was before:

And here is how it is now that I think I have it right:

It turns out that Kirstofer whilst looking rubbish, would actually be our best goalkeeper.

I'm at the start of the third season, and I was finally able to remove the 15th tier, and the game is slightly faster now :P

Only slightly :lol: Shame you're not doing updates on it, would've loved to follow that!

Two wins and a final day defeat sees Ormeau Baker fall to 2nd on the final day and sees us promoted to the 20th tier as champions! :D

2024/25 Pre-Season

94b4dc5fbcfae4feeae4f24198589973.png

Another good pre-season and through in both cups, I think Macosquin play in the 13th tier so that's a good scalp for us with two late goals from Shay Morrisroe!

We lose Ryan as he joins Mindwell up in the 8th tier.
