Colwyn Bay Season 1 Vanarama National North League
So after my initial success with Rushall I decided to start again with Colwyn Bay.
After struggling tactically with the Rushall save I decided to download a tactic from the site and start again. We had a great pre-season bedding the tactic in, although we were playing against teams we was expected to beat. We started the season well, including a 7-3 win away at Stalybridge in the second game. After this we really struggled over the next few weeks and I thought it was going to be a case of just trying to stay up. But things started to turn for the better after a 4-2 win away to Rushall (funnily enough) in the FA Cup. We then went on a 13 game unbeaten run, including a great 1-0 win over League 1 Swindon Town in the FA Cup 1st round. Mansfield Town brought the run to an end with a 3-2 loss in the 2nd round, although we was 2-0 up after 38 mins. We managed to keep the form going till the end of the season and on the final day we was confirmed champions thanks in part to Kidderminster losing at Guiseley on the final day. AFC Telford managed to knock us out of the FA trophy at the 2nd round.
So overall a brilliant season way above my expectation. It could of been a lot better had we held on to the lead at Mansfield as they played Stoke away in the 3rd round, eventually losing 6-1.

Signed from TNS for £2,500, he was exceptional for such a young age. Won't sign a new contract though so looks will be a one season wonder.
Signed on a free from Chorley Town. Great first season and can hopefully build on it next year.
Already at the club when I arrived. Started of as the back-up striker but managed to make the position behind the striker his own and scored 19 goals in 35 starts in the process.
Tried to sign him on the previous save with Rushall but was turned down. This time he signed on a free from Ramsbottom. Turned into a great signing and still only young. Would recommend him to anyone starting the challenge.
Last but not least. Finished top goalscorer at the club and in the league. Signed for free from Stourbridge and managed an impressive 31 goals in 40 games. Again I would definitely recommend signing him.
Basically stay in the league, although it would be nice to push on for a mid-table position or even a play-off. After coming so close to reaching the 3rd round of the FA Cup, getting there this season with a big away day would be brilliant!!
