FM24 England Level 10 Challenge


Recommended Posts

#7th Season 2029/2030 over. 4th place. Some great games, but also some games where i was near to break my whole setup :D 

At the start of the season i coul literally not sign any player. It was such a hard start. But after some time things got easier.

 

Lost in the playoff semi final against AFC Telford United... 5-1

Season 4 is over and we bottled it!. Finished 3rd in the end and made it to the playoff final to absolutely hammer the other team and still got beat 2-0. So a second year in the Combined Counties League Premier Division North is what waits and the board expect playoffs. I'm going to take a good look at the team and release some players and try and strengthen the team. I'm not having the success I was hoping for but I am enjoying the experience so far.

Season 4, second in the 8th level, finished 6th after losing the final game to the 5th in the standings.

Out of the Cups at the first game.

Nine new starters helped the team to be competitive in the league, good defense, average attack in GD/GA.

Next season the team must compete for the league title.

The answer is 28. My Selston team, full of players recruited by other teams, players who turned down those offers to stay with Selston, went 28 games without a win. And I was fired.

And so I reintroduce myself as manager of Brimsdown. Home kit is green. Away kit is green. We wear green and are known as the Limers. (For any Marble League fans, my team is the Green Ducks).Brimsdown.thumb.jpg.800d5900ee932b8a4dd91b51c4869a0a.jpg

Brimsdown season one (or parts thereof)

I took over with the team in 16th place, having earned 9 points from 11 games. There was no staff, and barely enough players to have 5 subs. I did not work any miracles with the team, we did not even make the playoffs, but I did earn 43 points in 27 games. And I was not responsible for any cups. They brought me in right after the previous manager lost back to back in both cups.

On to season two with Brimsdown, my first full season with them.

Season 5

No bottling of the season this time although did get knocked out of the Counties Cup in the 1st round. Signed a new contract in the January till the end of next season. I always try and push my wages up. So now I am on $150 per week a $30 pay rise. I'm excited to move up to this next league and hopefully can sign my players to semi-pro contracts instead of non contracts so I don't lose my players as easy. The rebuild is on!

You need to gain promotion to tier 7 before you can start offering part-time deals

6th season, 6th promotion, but also the first title in 3 years! For most of the season, Macclesfield was my biggest adversary, but in the end only Rochdale came close. We only lost twice however throughout the entire season (the 2nd and the 2nd to last match of the season), so that cemented our league win nicely. Cup-wise we managed to beat Rochdale and Burton Albion in the FA Cup before being knocked out in the 2nd round on penalties after a replay by Bolton Wanderers... FA Trophy was a lot worse, knocked out in the 4th round already by Bury.

Our board made us professional straight after promotion, and also expanded the stadium for a whopping 1.7 million... Not that we had either the money or the attendance to do this, but we had league rules to comply to. Wage budget is now up to 16.2k / week, meaning I can hire some better players but especially sign my better talents on fixed contracts. It was too late already for my man-of-the-season Devlan Moses however, who choose to leave for free to Larne at the end of the season...

Very curious to see if we manage to garner some money and not rack up too much debt and if we can compete at the professional Sky Bet League 2 Level!

Brimsdown 2027-2028: we lose in the playoffs. Lost in each cup in our first game on PK's.

Brimsdown 2028-2029: We do the double!: We clinched promotion from Eastern Counties League Division 1 South (level 10) with 4 games to go, then we won the Eastern Counties Cup. Our grounds, Wormley Sports club, which we share with Wormley Rovers and Buckhurst Hill, were being expanded during the season, so we played in a rented ground, The Royal Agricultural College, in front of a little more than a dozen fans at each home game. I think we can expect a few more fans as we see what Level 9 has to offer.

Season 6

So back to back promotions and things are finally starting to gel. We won the league with 5 games to go, so that was definitely our best season. Finances are still terrible and more rumors of another take over. The original 5 year loans will be ending soon so thats two less payments going out.

Northwood are coming up with us and we actually share their ground. Average attendances are 120 in a 3500 capacity stadium so I doubt we will be moving any time soon.

Season 7

The board expected to avoid relegation. I was hopeful of going up but I'm actually pretty ok with finishing 7th. I did the best I've ever done in the cups and I even made the final of the Southern League Cup which I should have won but wasn't to be. Attendances went up but my finances are still a struggle. My board deny everything apart from surprisingly my coaching courses. I am going to be fully certified in 1 year when hopefully I enter the Conference National South League. Going for a squad and staff rebuild so we shall see how it goes.

RETFORD UNITED 23/24

Very happy with this season, literally only one defeat and that was in the vase 1/4 final, I was 2-0 up (I think) then I conceded 3 in the last 10 minutes. I should go straight up again next season

After playing with Hucknall Town until the 2041/42 season in FM23, I am finally ready for a new challenge and step in to FM24.

This time I have chosen to take over Godalming Town. Was looking for a team with yellow kits, and after narrowing it down to a few clubs I was sold because of Bill Kyte and his dedication to this football club. 

As I did with Hucknall Town I will once again play this challenge with the restriction of not spending a single penny on transfer fees. Loans are ok, but only if I just pay the wage and nothing else. 

Here we go.

First season completed.

Always forget that you lose half your team (at least) during the season and need to replace them. Part of the fun (and frustration) at this level.

Season Summary

We were champions going into injury time on the final day of the season, before Euxton Villa scored a dramatic winner to go above us and secure the title and the only guaranteed promotion spot.  So we were forced to settle for the playoffs.  Despite reaching the final, the playoffs proved a stepm too far as, despite dominating the final, we lost rather convincingly.  We were also prettry poor in the cups.

8th season over. I took a long break from the game (about 1 month) because i lost my motivation to play. After that i started a save with FC Bayern München and then returned to this save again. Then i tried a new tactic and maybe i found the most OP tactic in the game :D After that point i had an unbelievable run.

We finally finished Vanarama National League North as champions.

9th season finished, we are back to back champions! the season final was unbelievable. we had also a good run in the cups. next year we are getting a professional team. I don´t know if Sky Bet League 2 is too much for us. Lets see.

10th season over (2032/2033). 7th place, it was a season with ups and downs. We lost in the Playoff semi finals to Mansfield Town. First leg at home 4-0 win, seconde leg minute 28 4-0 for Mansfield :D Endresult was 6-1... But its ok, we try to strengthen the team for next season. I was able to upgrade my training facilities twice, start of the season and now for 825.000 €. I am somehow not able to get staff for the team, i can only pay 15k and thats not enough for anyone.

It was an awful season, apart from reaching the FA Cup 4th Qualifying Round. (So, nothing to add to the leader board).

I couldn’t get any decent players to join us, and believe me I tried.

We were mid-table all season until a late spurt gave us a slim chance. We stood a chance of reaching the playoffs in our final match, but that would have involved beating the league champions away from home and about 4 teams above us losing or drawing. Anyway we lost and finished 5 points and 5 places outside the playoffs.

There was nobody worth signing in the youth intake. We’re in debt and we’re going to have to expand the stadium to abide by league rules.

If I can’t improve the team this is going to be difficult. Our future is not great.

Top Goalscorer - Dennis Bossman – 13

13 goals in 45 matches. He’s supposed to be by far our best striker, but I’m going to export the stats and look at whether that’s really true at the start of next season.

Highest Average Rating (minimum 10 matches played) – Lewis Hooper – 7.23

The only player above 7.

I'm a bit of technophobia never downloaded anything on the game but fancy giving this a go. Is there any dummy guides how to do this 

My old Saturday league team turned semi pro a few years ago so starting as as ex player manager seems great story.

11th season over. We played another great season, but from mid february we had such a bad run where we lost the battle for the championship. Sometimes it feels like the game says "stop, you are extremely overachieving. So now you will loose 4-5 games to make things normal agin." I know its not scripted, but it sometimes feels extremely like it.... We bottled the championship and ended up on the 4th place.

We lost the Playoff semi finals against Cambridge United. After a 1-1 away we lost 4-1 on purpose at home. I know it sounds cringe, but i WANT THE CHAMPIONSHIP :D Everytime i go to the playoffs i will lose on purpose. Because once i hit the Premier League, i will look back and say "wow, we have been champions in every possible league level in England". I want every trophie : )))

Season 12.  Maybe our best season so far. 111 points new record in L2, 34 wins new record in L2. Last 8 matches of the season 5 draws 2 loses :D we could set an unbelievable record, but it is what it is.

image.thumb.png.e4f6715f84b502dc3a9efa7c5823df16.png

also the cup runs were incredible. besides the carabao cup were we lost to Stockport County in the 2nd leg. But i would never think of playing in the quarter final of the fa cup at home against tottenham at this stage of the career. What an intens game. I will add another screenshot of the game... Bristol Street Motors Trophy out in quarter finals against Chesterfield.

image.thumb.png.1024f6d202342878616dac54a4f66473.png

WHAT A GAME IT WAS. We were so close to knock the Spurs out. GG´s. It would mean at least 1 Million € garanteed.

Better late than never, I have decided to take on this challenge for the first time, using the club on whose pitches I spent a decade playing in the very bottom division of Sunday League - K Sports FC. Based in the outskirts of Maidstone, Kent, and originally formed in 1919 as Ayelsford Paper Mills (the works team of the now demolished paper mill based in the area), K Sports have excellent facilities for their level but no pedigree to speak of, having spent only 1 season at a level above their current division -  Southern Counties East Division 1.
 

Meet the manager : 

An old school manager who is open to new ideas, he has a real focus on fitness and an eye for a player at this level

With a predicted mid-table finish and good facilities for this level of football, there is every reason to be optimistic going into the season

The squad is a mixture of youth and experience but a little unbalanced, looking particularly short of quality up front. It looks like some movement will be needed in the free transfer market before the season starts :

First season complete - Won the SCEFL Div 1 at a canter and somehow fluked my way into an FA Vase win too

The entire squad has been replaced one and a half times due to teams constantly poaching my players, but such is level 10. 

This season's stand out players :

Top Scorer, Highest Av. Rating & Fans' PotS: Michael Ogboin
A relatively immobile target man, but stick the ball on his head and he will score:

Top Assists : Junior Dadson
An experienced winger who can also play up front (which he needed to do after my best two poachers were....poached), he brought a touch of class to the team and often pulled us out of the fire just when he needed to :

Young PotS : Kaidyn Michael

A mobile midfielder with a decent long shot and eye for goal. May well be more prominent next season, although will be fighting with a long of young players from a decent intake

Next season's plan is to try and upgrade the squad and at least make the playoffs. There could be a lot of ins and outs just due to our players all being wanted by bigger clubs. I think season 2 will be one where we start blooding a number of youngsters, as the youth system was why I came to this club in the first place.

I have tried several times and I go again.  I holidayed for a season and have taken over at Saffron Dynamo, who finished bottom of their division.  We start in tier ten.  I am following the rules of the Youth Only challenge for this save though it also applied to this challenge.

I'm interested in giving this a go, but I generally like playing a local club, of which there are none at level ten in Cumbria. I was wondering if it would be against the challenge rules to create my local club (Cockermouth FC) who are at level 13 IRL, and replace the lowest ranked club in the Northern League D1, giving them the same reputation and financial power etc.
