No problem. I think there is a fair chance that Ranocchia lived within your catchment area so I have asked him. :lol:

 

I think if he's from Assisi then even he is outside my area, here's all the neighbouring municipalities with Bastia Umbra:

Perugia is the obvious high population area and Assisi is the closest to us so if I were to ever relax the rules (Which at this moment of time I definitely won't) then Assisi would be the first place I could then get players from. Assisi actually has ten clubs as well, although none above the 5th tier. My player search goes from 21 players from Bastia Umbra, up to 100 if I include Assisi and up to 284 if I include all five municipalities. I think of these players at most 149 are non-regens.

2023/24 Pre-Season

Agnonese were the only team at our level and they beat us easily. We finished up with some morale boosters which will hopefully help.

We're still well detached at the bottom of the table.

Signings! Tommaso comes from Promozione side Costano and we manage to get a loan player from Bastia Umbra.

A far, far better season for us! Have we overperformed? I guess next season will tell!

Thanks Olivier! They're definitely an unknown team worth knowing. :D 

I have a Croatia Berlin vibe ! you know i loved the topic name and story . Tried to start with them a few times but starting that low and in 'long' leagues never worked for me, that is why i'm now back in iceland after finishing the youth challenge with Africanos Braganca (also a special club with the Cape Verde intakes , but not an unknown club).

Before I settled here I was looking into clubs like FC Romania or Corinthian-Casuals but I didn't feel like having an FMCU save in England at the moment.

Fc romania is one of my other favorites and tried a few youth challenges with them. On this fm their was a brexit issue so has to use a no brexit file. Also the Caley Braves with french regens in scotland is very fun. GOOD luck with this special club and story.

As you say - a better season once more and a fantastic prospect there in the centre of midfield, could be a fantastic little prospect. Fingers crossed you can keep him for the upcoming season and push on towards the upper epsilons of the league!

I'd never even thought about the brexit scenario, I was going to compile a list since I saw there was an England to lvl 13 database out but I just didn't get round to it. The other one off the top of my head were FC Petrocub who had Moldovan regens come through.

This looks like it'll be very fun to follow! Great start!

Thanks! We've definitely had a way better first three seasons than I expected!

Hopefully! Survival is the aim of the game, but anything better than that will be great! :D

Perfect pre-season even beating Serie D side Trestina!

We're not predicted last!

We were able to bring back Fabio Cairoli, turns out I can no longer get players from Bastia Umbra due to the poor relationship between the staff at both clubs, I'm not quite sure what I did. :lol:

Damn, form has taken a little dip but still up there and contending for 2nd, first may be a little further/far away but still a few months left yet to make up ground. Best of luck!

It continues to dip so I don't think we'll make the playoffs either! :lol:

Just the one league win as we lose at home to bottom side Ellera and draw against second from bottom side Catiglione del Lago which leaves us 16 points off top spot and nine points off of the playoffs. :(

I'm not entirely sure but I think the Coppa Italia Dilettanti is the cup for the winners of each of the Eccellenza League Cups so it's good to see us do well here whilst our league form is improving again!

So here is an absolutely massive surprise, a 119th minute winner from new boy Francesco Lazzari saw us won the Coppa Italia Dilettanti which actually means that we win promotion to Serie D!!!! We are going to get absolutely destroyed next season!

That's actually a thoroughly interesting idea - having the Cup promote a side, I'm inclined to love that! Good season in all, even if the form did drop off some. Hopefully things go better than expected!

It's not something I'd ever seen before so it was a shock to me! We've won our first game of the season which is a surprise as everyone in their team was rated 5* in comparison to us. :lol:
