Coventry End of 1st season update:
Transfers - I brought in Thierry Ambrose and Gael Bigirimana on loan. Also brought in Peter Ramage on a free. Ambrose was a fantastic addition scoring 15 and assisting 7.
League - Got off to a great start, unbeaten in the first 9 winning 8 of them. I had a great set of results between the end of October to the end of March losing only 6 games. I was at the top of the league for the majority of the season. However, things started to go a bit downhill around mid April losing 4 of my last 5 games. This cost me an automatic promotion spot. I was drawn against Oldham in the playoffs, who gave us a 4-1 thumping on the last day of the season so was a bit nervous going into this tie. Scraped a 1-0 win in the first leg in a pretty even match. I lost 2-1 in the second leg taking it to extra time and penalties which thankfully we won!! I was then drawn against Barnsley in the playoff. In a high scoring match we unfortunately lost 5-3. Devastated to have missed out on automatic promotion by 2 points and unlucky to lose the play off final but looking at the positives we achieved a lot more than what was expected of us.
Players - There were a few players who impressed me over the course of the season.
Aaron Phillips - was a consistent performer over the season. Taking advantage of Jordan Willis being out injured at the start of the season, he eventually ended up with an incredible 18 assists in the league and an average rating of 7.34.
Ryan Haynes - I decided to put him ahead of Chris Stokes and it paid off contributing with an impressive 15 assists and average rating of 7.28.
Ruben Lameiras - Played mainly as AML and contributed with 16 goals and 7 assists which helped take the burden off the strikers.
Adam Armstrong - Outstanding player for the team, scoring a tidy 24 goals and chipping in with 10 assists and a great average rating of 7.47.
Cups - Not a great time in the cups went out in the first round of both the FA Cup and the Capital One cup. However, had some minor success in the JPT getting to the quarter final.
Excited to crack on with the next season. Looking to secure at least the playoffs and hopefully be able to secure some great signings!
