    [FM18] - Downham Market

    Finally some real money coming into the club Expectations are pretty low, pretty confident of surpassing these Paul Gibson and Lee Simmons both come back for another year on loan from Bristol City, also joining us this year are Was at King's Lynn on loan last year and will compete with Simmons for the starting berth, was surprised he agreed to join us Bagged this guy on a free transfer should be decent for this level, don't expect him to start but will be a good squad player We have plenty of options up top but couldn't resist getting this guy on loan he was class last year for Wealdstone where he got 35 goals in the Conference. Now this is a huge coup, we had Dele a few years back and he left for big bucks to Southend but the move hasn't worked out for him and he is on the transfer list there and we got him back for the season

    Cheers I really wasn't expecting it, was shocked when Shrewsbury threw the title away We then showed that we can bottle it too as we threw away a 3-1 lead in the FA Trophy final to deny ourselves the double and retain our cup Another extension for league requirements has made us skint again Happy to get this finally over the line Big news this, time to renegotiate all the contracts to get them training full time Good opportunity but not for me

    We done it! League 2 here we come! In the end the last game was just a formality as Shrewsbury bottled the run in so I was 3 points clear going into the final game with a 14 goal advantage, it would've been more difficult to lose the title. To make matters worse for them they lost in the play off semi final with our fake neighbours and former ground share buddies Bromley getting promoted alongside us. A few award winners at the club

    [FM18] - Downham Market

    February-March 2025 Its been a big few months for the Downham boys as we keep the pace with the league leaders and also make our second FA Trophy final so we get another day out at Wembley. Its a three horse race now for the title with 4 games left to play, we also have to travel to Shrewsbury on the last day of the season in what could be a huge game. Another one of our golden generation made his debut, although a 5-5 draw is not exactly an ideal start for a keeper, thankfully in the other games he deputised for the injured Allen he kept it together a bit more. The Bromley based stuff is very frustrating now but I am so far into the game I have to just put up with it. Keeping with the youth here is the top 2 prospects from this years batch, Reice Joseph could be a monster. Also when former player Lee O'Leary finally hung up his boots at 39 I decided to bring him back into the fold

    January 2025 It was a bad start to 2025 getting hammered by Aldershot but we soon turned it around picking up 4 wins on the bounce as the title race gets even tighter with just one point between the top 3. At the other end Charlton continue to struggle as former player Konchesky takes the reigns he is their 3rd permanent manager this season and 13th in the save. We crashed out the FA Cup to Wolves but that was to be expected really however we are making good progress in the FA Trophy and we have been drawn against Loughborough in a repeat of last years final Finally some recognition for our form

    Decent draw and an even better performance sadly we succumbed to a last minute goal and ended hope of a replay, we ended up with £160,000 from the gate receipts. Courtney Baker-Richardson is also the current top goal scorer in this years FA Cup bagging 10 goals in just 4 appearances. He's locked down for another 2 seasons, here's hoping we can keep him.

    November/December 2024 After a big few months we are right in the title mix with our fake neighbours Bromley and big boys Shrewsbury. A lot of football to still be played but if we can keep the side together I am confident we can stay in the play offs considering the gap between us and 8th but whether we can make a sustained push for the title might just be a stretch beyond us Huge game in the FA Cup that should keep us in the black till the end of the year and make sure our planned work on the training facilities goes ahead

    Lightning can strike twice as Baker-Richardson put the Dons to the sword, decent gate as well which will stave off another month in red, in the 2nd round we were drawn with Tranmere who won the Conference last year, with a home tie I am hopeful at the possibility of making the 3rd round and being thrown in with the big boys Our good form has earned me a pay rise and a new 2 year deal, lets keep the good times rolling

    October 2024 Nearly slipped up to Kettering in the cup but we held no for a replay and eventually got past them to earn ourselves an away game at league one MK Dons again who we beat 3-2 at the same stage last year, can history repeat itself? Big win against local rivals King's Lynn was made even sweeter with the first player to make their debut from the so called golden generation, sadly due to some database error it still thinks we are Bromley based and as such is where all our youth prospects are coming from, this player could have a decent career past us potentially and has already played for Scotland U'19's Just in time for our FA Cup replay our expansion has been complete

    September 2024 Apart from a slip up at Fylde we would of gone the month unbeaten, good start to the league for us as we manage to get ourselves into the play offs, on loan striker Paul Gibson getting 6 goals in 3 games before injuries ruled him out rest of the month. It was a bad month for Charlton who find themselves rock bottom and also occupying a relegation spot is local rivals King's Lynn

    August 2024 We had an opening day to forget with our old ground share buddies smashing us, thankfully we bounced back and picked up 2 wins and 2 draws. Paul Gibson who we snagged on loan from Bristol City has made a solid start for us picking up 3 goals and also Tommy Parks whose on loan from QPR I will get some screenshots of them soon they are both decent players and thankfully we have them for the season. Currently mid table but its still early days my target is the play offs.

    I'm having trouble attracting top players to join our side permanently so I have been dipping into the loan market bringing in 3 players including a striker As for the money I got the board to finally agree to improve some facilities

    Cheers it'd been a few years since we lifted a trophy so was a welcome return Couple of big departures one was a sad day for the club and the other was a financial decision Dele had been the rock in our midfield the last two years and was our most valuable player by a mile and he wanted to leave so he heads to the dizzy heights of the Championship Mirza a club legend and the last of the originals from level 10, he was very prolific in the early days but has been a bit part player as of late and sadly he wanted to move on and I couldn't talk him round so since he has been such a great servant I waived a fee and let him go to relegated Boston, all the best Mirza Seddon out left back left to Billericay for 20k as well so the squad was looking very thin so I promoted 4 of the players from the "golden generation" and the one player from the U'23's who I didn't release. Just as I let Mirza leave for free, disaster strikes

    We made £100k with that FA Trophy win which has enabled me to twist the boards arm to get our recruitment up our junior coaching is currently rated as exceptional so wasn't possible to get an upgrade this time Now we are skint again, we couldn't sell out 3,000 but its required by the league so we didn't really have a choice
