  1. Stamford - Vanarama Conference North - 2017/18 Did better this season in finishing higher up the league and having a more stable squad now. Had quite a few different job offers from the same league during the season and my chairman has been in takeover talks three times in the season. I wished he took the first one as it was the ex-Bolton chairman so he might have brought in more money! League Table - Had a good start to the season as usual and was floating in the playoffs for a lot of the time. Then the last 10 games of the season the players decided to go on holiday early and we dropped down to the mid table. FA Trophy - Disappointed to go out to a team in a lower divison FA Cup - Drawn against Tamworth who we can't seem to beat whatever formation we play Transfers - Less turnaround in squad this time round Key Player Profiles: Luke Beesley - Like usual top scorer although not as good this season Corey Gregory - Most consistent player, if only the rest of them were like that Danny Rowe - our most valuable player again although didn't do as well this season Career Overview Season League Position Achievements ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2015/16 Vanarama Conference North 12th 2016/17 Vanarama Conference North 19th 2017/18 Vanarama Conference North 10th Next Season Next seasons aim is the play-offs at the minimum
  2. Stamford - Vanarama Conference North - 2016/17 Barely survived on the last day of the season but at least most of the team is now in place. League Table - The usual thing happened of getting off to a good start only for my tactics to become "broken" and start conceding several goals a game and go on a losing streak. FA Trophy - Knocked out straight away but was playing my reserves in order to prioritise the league FA Cup - Reached the 3rd qualifying round. Transfers - High turnover of players again... Key Player Profiles: Luke Beesley - Like first time round top scorer Corey Gregory - One of the few highlights in the team again this season Danny Rowe - our most valuable player again Career Overview Season League Position Achievements ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2015/16 Vanarama Conference North 12th 2016/17 Vanarama Conference North 19th Next Season Trying out new formations so just going to see what happens and attempt to avoid the mid season slide!
  3. Stamford - Vanaram Conference North - 2015/16 Started again as the second season started off well but then went disastrously wrong and ended up getting relegated and sacked! Still stuck with Stamford but this time round I took a quick read of the forums for some ideas and changed my approach to tactics, training and transfers (which ended up with a lot of scouting and people coming in on trail in preseason). Partly I didn't have a great pre-season to blend and get the tactics up due to the large amount of players. Still the first season I did better with a mid-table finish and I feel a lot stronger core set of young players. League Table - I started off well and was hovering around the play-offs however a small squad (as non-contract backup players left wanting first team football) and injuries ruined that and I drifted into mid-table and ended up 12th. FA Trophy - Managed to reach the 2nd round, where a late goal knocked us out. FA Cup - Managed to reach the expectation of the 3rd qualifying round but was knocked out by bitter rivals Corby after having a player sent off. (the Corby games spiced up in the league due to this game) Transfers - Players came in a out of those that have stayed, they have done well so far. Key Player Profiles: Luke Beesley - Like first time round top scorer Corey Gregory - Signed him as a backup player as he could play wide and up front. His appearances on the wing soon earned him a contract and ended up being fans player of the year. Danny Rowe - our most valuable player. First time round I let him go... I see what a big mistake that was! Career Overview Season League Position Achievements ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2015/16 Vanarama Conference North 12th Next Season Strength the squad depth so bringing in youth that won't want first team football straight away. Aiming for the playoffs at least this time round.
  4. Stamford - Vanaram Conference North - 2015/16 Not a great season as finished low down in the league and in the middle of a squad overhaul. League Table - Won the first game then lost the next three. Then went on a winning run and was around the play-offs. Then it all fell apart as ailly mistakes by any player in put the team seem to gift winning goals to the opposition and went on runs of not winning in 6 or 7 games. FA Trophy - Managed to reach the 2nd round, where we was knocked out by Forest Green in the league above FA Cup - Passed expectations and reached the 4th qualifying round. Transfers - A lot of comings and goings. Some worked some didn't Key Player Profiles: Luke Beesley - top scorer and fans player of the season Sam Austin - My target man I brought in and made an impact by scoring 8 in 8 games Liam Kingsmill - our most valuable player Career Overview Season League Position Achievements ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2015/16 Vanarama Conference North 17th Next Season Squad overhaul now occurring so aim is for play offs / mid table.
