    Garforth Town - Season Review - 2012/13 Evo-Stik League First Division North - 4th (promoted via play-off's) A truly excellent season, we couldn't have done much better than 4th seeing as Frickley, Radcliffe Boro and Lancaster City were miles away all season. Results are elsewhere in the thread, don't see any need to link them. FA Cup - Eliminated: 1st Qualifying Round After a shaky 1-0 win over level 9 side Startford thanks to Elliot Dent's goal we went to face level 8 side Halesowen in the 1st Qualifying Round. We were beaten comprehensively 3-1 and were knocked out of the competition. FA Trophy - Eliminated: 3rd Qualifying Round We went on a good run beating level 7 sides Hitchin and Bury Town 3-0 respectively before we were unlucky beaten 1-0 by Dover thanks to a last minute strike. Doodson Sports Cup - Eliminated: Preliminary Round Honestly couldn't care less about this, went out to Whitby losing 2-0. Evo-Stik League Presidents Cup - Eliminated: 2nd Round We beat rivals Farsley in extra-time in the 1st Round, 2-1. But we couldn't beat Newcastle Town in extra-time in the 2nd Round, going out 2-1. West Riding County Cup - Winners Another easy run to the final (bar Wakefield in the semi's, which we easily won), we were up against Ossett Town. I can't say much more about the result than what was said above. Club Transfers: N/A Finances: N/A Player of the Season: N/A New Club Records N/A What Next? Well, I got carried away and I've already completed next season, so I've been unable to get screenshots and properly update this career thread. I'll just say, next season was a good one. A full season review for 2013/14 will be up in the next few days, with a squad review and more to get everyone caught up with what has happened.
  8. Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

    Wow, quite a squad your building at Watford. Excellent job winning the Carling Cup as well.
  9. The Birth of a Messiah

    The West Riding County Cup Final: 2012/13 A true managerial and player master class as the lads come back from 1 down to win with ten men in extra time. We beat Pontefract Coils, Liversedge and Wakefield to get to the final. Everyone has come in to celebrate the club and me for retaining the Mickey Mouse trophy. I've just found out that we'll be in it next season, so I'll win it for the 5th time in a row. A season review shall be up soon, not so sure if I'll continue documenting this save due to a lack of interest from others.
  10. The Birth of a Messiah

    End of Season: 2012/13 Evo-Stik League First Division North Results Yet another run of excellent results helped to bring an excellent 2nd half of the season for Garforth Town. League Table So this left us in the play-off's, which I knew was easily achievable after the chairman increased the wage budget, with the new signings making the impact needed. Frickley ran away with the title really after Radcliffe Boro failed to take advantage of their games in hand. Play-Off's Semi-Final I was surprised to find out that the play-off's were drawn, instead of being 2nd vs 5th & 3rd vs 4th, but this outcome still came out anyway. We were drawn against Lancaster City, a good side but I knew we would have the edge. We were dominated all match by Lancaster City, but a stroke of luck came as the match seemed to go into extra-time. We were awarded a penalty. Tom Piotrowski buried it to send us through to the final. Final In the final it was Radcliffe Boro, who I thought would be way too strong for us. They were miles away from the rest along with Frickley, they beat us twice as well. What a great win, Radcliffe Boro never turned up on the day and barely threatened at all. Goals from Darren Kelly and Saheed Sankoh sealed promotion. Now to end the season there was the matter of retaining the West Riding County Cup, which sadly we won't be able to retain next season.

    Halfway Update: 2012/13 In a change of updating and to give more convenience for me, I shall be giving updates halfway through the season and at the end of the season until Garforth rise higher up the leagues. Evo-Stik League First Division North Results (Missing from this screenshot is a 1-0 win over Prescot with Luke Carr getting the goal) After a dreadful start without a win in five matches things turned around after a tight win at Curzon Ashton, form then picked up. I'm delighted with the results so far, only really losing to teams higher up the table. League Table After recovering from an awful start, things look good as we are just outside the play-offs. Cup Results FA Cup - 1st Qualifying Round (beaten 3-1 by Halesowen) FA Trophy - 3rd Qualifying Round (beaten 1-0 by Dover) Doodson Sports Cup - Preliminary Round (beaten 2-0 by Whitby) Evo-Stik League Presidents Cup - 2nd Round (beaten 2-1 by Newcastle Town in extra time) West Riding County Cup - Still in it I'll post full results during the end of season update. Summary So Far After a dreadful start to the season I was worrying that this would be another mid-table season, my fears were eased once we went on a good run after beating Curzon Ashton. Near the end of October I asked for a wage budget increase from the chairman, and it was granted, increasing the budget to £670 p/w. Thanks to this I've been able to bring in back-up which are capable of getting the job done. Positives + Luke Carr has emerged as a goalscoring machine after he was signed near the end of last season, scoring goals for fun in some matches. Like when he bagged 4 against Scarborough Athletic for example. He earned Player of the Month for November due to this. + Kenny Woods, the chairman has been extremely kind in increasing my wage budget. I think this has given me the edge now over our rivals now. + Players like Ollie Hotchkiss (despite being plagued by injury), Jamie Price and Tom Piotrowski have emerged after average turnouts last season, contributing to the team doing so well. + My scout seems to have struck a goldmine, finding some great players with great potential. Negatives - Our inability to beat the big teams, we need to overcome this if we can get promotion. - The result against Wakefield, we were 2-0 up before falling apart. Targets for the rest of the season - Reach the play-offs - Retain the West Riding County Cup - Keep up the performances of Luke Carr and others

    Pre-Season: July/August 2012 Once again, another solid pre-season. The youngsters I signed near the end of last season have impressed.

    Garforth Town - Season Review - 2011/12 Evo-Stik League First Division North - 11th League Table/Results Pt. 1/Results Pt. 2 A decent season in all really. Consolidating our position as a comfortable mid-table side. I believe this is a fair evaluation of the team, but next season I want to change this. Board Expectation - Learn from the experience of competing in the league. Board Evaluation - The board are delighted that the team have finished in a respectable position this season. - Superb FA Cup - Eliminated: Preliminary Round Result We went out to level 9 side Rye in controversial fashion, as my keeper Neil Postelthwaite, was sent off before the end of the first half for handling the ball outside the box. We couldn't cope with the 11 men of Rye and we soon went down to 9 men. At that point the match was lost, despite a late consolation. Board Expectation - Reach the 1st Qualifying Round. Board Evaluation - Slightly concerned, but can understand why the team was defeated by Rye. - Okay FA Trophy - Eliminated: 1st Qualifying Round Results We drew level 7 side Redditch, so I couldn't see us winning. Surprisingly they didn't turn up for the match first time round, but we failed to take advantage of that, forcing a replay. We then went out convincingly. Board Expectation - Learn from the experience of competing in the FA Trophy. Board Evaluation - The board are delighted that the team reached the 1st Qualifying Round. - Good Doodson Sports Cup - Eliminated: 1st Round Result I didn't really bother with this cup, fielding a weakened team against parallel level 8 side Brigg, it showed as we were convincingly beaten. Board Expectation - Reach the 1st Round. Board Evaluation - The board are pleased that the team reached the 1st Round. - Good West Riding County Cup - Winners Results Very easy competition, which involves level 8, 9 and 10 sides and reserve sides of teams at Level 6. The only real challenge we faced was Goole in the 2nd Round, who were a parallel level 8 side, it was plain sailing from then on as we wrapped things up with an excellent 5-1 win over Barnoldswick at Valley Parade to lift the trophy. I hope to retain it next season. Board Expectation - Reach the 2nd Round. Board Evaluation - The board are delighted that the team won the West Riding County Cup. - Superb Club Transfers In - I focused on signing youngsters at high potential levels to help make the rise through the divisions more smooth, other signings focused on experience at this level. Out - I released five players as soon as I arrived. Over the first third of the season I forced Chris Howarth out as his wages were a problem (£75 p/w). The rest were poached by other clubs as they were not under contract. Finances Not good at all. Even though I went £200 over the wage budget set, the club still would have made a loss. Player of the Season Jamie Price A constant rock in defence and our most consistent player this season. Also pitched in at centre midfield for several matches as well. New Club Records Highest Gate Receipts - £1,000 vs Cammell Laird, Evo-Stik League First Division North, 4/2/12 Lowest Attendance - 79 vs Redditch, FA Trophy 1st Qualifying Round, 26/10/11 Average Attendance - 191 Biggest Win - 5-1 vs Barnoldswick, West Riding County Cup Final, 2/5/12 Biggest Defeat - 1-5 vs Prescot, Evo-Stik League First Division North, 26/11/11 Highest Scoring Game - "" "" Highest Scoring League Game - "" "" Most Games Won in Row - 4 - 14/1/12 to 4/2/12 Most Games Lost in Row - 3 - 14/9/11 to 24/9/11 Most Games without Losing - 6 - 21/2/12 to 20/3/12 Most Games without Winning - 6 - 22/10/11 to 12/11/11 Most Games without Conceding - 3 - 21/2/12 to 3/3/12 Most Games without Scoring - 2 - 14/9/11 to 17/9/11 What Next? I'm going to take a break from Football Manager for a bit. Plans are already in place for next season; all staff going apart from the Assistant Manager, getting rid of players on wages not worth their quality, getting experience and back-up in every position. I'll see you all sometime soon.
