  1. Matlock Town The Next Big Thing...With alittle love from Russia

    October 2017: A very busy month for us saw it beginning with a 1-1 draw against arch rivals Buxton, our goal came late in the game via K.Jackson, this was followed by a 2-0 win over Stourbridge thanks to goals from C.Oliver and C.Morrison. Then followed two 2-1 losses against Barwell and Rugby with M.Thalassitis scoring our only goal in each game. We made up for it though in the next game as we beat Soham 3-1 with M.Thalassitis scoring again and E.Newby getting himself a brace. The next game was a Northern Premier League Cup tie as we faced Carlton, we only managed a 1-1 draw with M.Thalassitis scoring, however we lost 3-2 on penalties. The final two games in the month saw us facing a FA Trophy 1st Qualifying Round against Maldon & Tiptree. The opening game saw us drawing 2-2 with C.Morrison and C.Oliver scoring to earn the lower league side a replay. The replay saw us beating them 1-0 with M.Thalassitis heading in the early goal to send us through to the next round. We remain top of the league by a single point over Blyth who have a game in hand. Financially we made a loss of £266,025 with the bank balance standing at £6,392,303. It's good too see us still at the top of the table but we are losing a lot of money each month now. Maybe turning professional so early on wasn't a good idea
  2. March 31: Aberystwyth (H) (30/32) The game was six minutes old when we had the first chance as S.Quigley ran onto a C.Roddan pass but his final effort went wide of the post. Soon after we had another chance with C.Morton crashing the ball against the crossbar from outside the area after running clear of the defence. However on the 19th minute Aberystwyth took the lead with a thunderous free-kick by A.Williams which beat J.Dixon into the top corner. Twelve minutes later we had our next chance with S.Quigley heading a R.Brobbel corner wide of the post after L.Elford-Alliyu's initial effort was well saved. The second half was much the same with us controlling the play but we struggled to break through the defence. On the 72nd minute we had the first chance of the half as R.Stambolziev jinked into the area but his final effort went wide of the post. With seven minutes remaining in the game we finally got equaliser as L.Elford-Alliyu tried his luck from 30 yards which bounced just in front of the keeper and over him into the back of the net TNS 1-1 Aberystwyth L.Elford-Alliyu 83 / A.Williams 19 J.Dixon, C.Stone (capt), A.Evans, T.Matthews, R.Pryce, R.Brobbel, J.N'Guessan (R.Stambolziev), C.Roddan (I.Zmimer), C.Morton, L.Elford-Alliyu, S.Quigley (G.Draper) End of Month Review: Dafabet Welsh Premier League: 1st (+3pts) JD Welsh Cup: Knocked out in 3rd Rd v Pen-y-Bont Nathaniel MG Cup: Winners 1-0 v Connah's Quay Scottish League Challenge Cup: Knocked out in ¼ Final v Dundee European Champions Cup: Knocked out 3rd Qualifying Phase v Dinamo Europa Cup: Knocked out Play-off Round v Girondins de Bordeaux
  3. Matlock Town The Next Big Thing...With alittle love from Russia

    September 2017: The month began with us being knocked out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle as Witton beat us 2-1 with S.Forte grabbing our only goal. The first league game of the month saw us going down 1-0 to Clitheroe but after that we went on a winning spree with Coalville being the first to succumb to us as we beat them 1-0 with S.Akbas doing the honours. The following game saw us beating close rivals Ilkeston 3-1 with S.Forte grabbing a goal and T.Roche grabbing a brace. Droylsden were next up and we managed to beat them 2-0 with C.Morrison and R.Allassani both scoring, next was another 2-0 win over Marine this time with E.Newby and R.Allassani again scoring. The final game of the month saw Skelmersdale going down 2-1 thanks to goals from R.Allassani and C.Morrison. The run of wins means we are now top of the league by four points The gaffer made three signings with Curtis Morrison a 19yr old striker joining from Chesterfield on loan, Jordan Brown is a 25yr old left back joining on a free from Gosport and Ben O'Hanlon a left back joining on a free transfer after being released from his previous club. He also let T.Hamblin join Hitchin on a free transfer Financially we made a loss of £243,672 with balance now standing at £6,658,348. I'm delighted that the manager has got us too the top of the league but I was hoping for more of a cup run to help the finances
  4. March 17th: Newtown (A) (29/32) Three minutes into the game we took the lead as R.Stambolziev curled a powerful effort into the top corner after running with the ball from the byline. Soon after we had another chance as L.Elford-Alliyu beat the offside trap and rattled the ball in from close range but his effort was ruled out for offside. We were all over Newtown and on the 29th minute we had another chance with J.N'Guessan ran with the ball and fired towards goal but the Newtown keeper saved well. On the stroke of half we had another chance with a well struck effort which saw the keeper at full stretch too save. The second half was a minute old when we added goal number two as L.Elford-Alliyu headed in an I.Zmimer cross. On the 53rd minute we made it three nil with R.Brobbel hammering home a free-kick from 25 yards after W.Fletcher was brought down on the way too goal. Newtown weren't getting near the ball and on the 74th minute we should have scored again but yet again the Newtown keeper was on hand to block the effort. Six minutes later though Newtown pulled a goal back with M.Pritchard running onto a through-ball and slotted in under the keeper. However with two minutes remaining in the game we regained our three goal advantage as W.Fletcher played a one two with I.Zmimer and fired in past the Newtown keeper with ease Newtown 1-4 TNS M.Pritchard 80 / R.Stambolziev 3, L.Elford-Alliyu 46, R.Brobbel 53, W.Fletcher 88 J.Dixon, J.Hawley (R.Brobbel), T.Matthews, A.Evans, R.Pryce (capt), J.N'Guessan, C.Roddan (C.Stone), I.Zmimer, R.Stambolziev (C.Morton), W.Fletcher, L.Elford-Alliyu Booked: I.Zmimer March 27th: Injury news sees R.Parry back in full training following his recent injury
  5. FM18 - Who will you manage?

    Normally I'll do an International story then a career from nothing. After a couple of months I'll have a look at what's in the editors hideaway and try a lower league career

  10. Matlock Town The Next Big Thing...With alittle love from Russia

    August 2017: The season began with a 2-0 win over Leek with a brace from M.Thalassitis and this was followed by a 3-0 win over Ashton United with M.Thalassitis, R.Allassani and an own goal by C.Jakovlevs. However the excellent start was interrupted by a 2-0 loss to Nantwich. Then followed a couple of draws with a 2-2 draw against Gainsborough with R.Allassani and K.Quansah both scoring, the next draw was a 1-1 draw against Grantham thanks to a last minute goal by J.Johns. The final game of the month saw us back on winning ways with R.Allassani scoring the equaliser against Sutton Coldfield. We finished the month in 6th place, three points off top spot and a point off the play-offs. The club made no signings this month but released A.Todd on a free, A.Chalmers on a free to Slough and C.Johnson on a free to Spalding. Financially we made a loss of £240,557 with the new balance at £6,902,020. We seem to be bleeding money at the moment but in truth I was expecting it as the ground hasn't yet been finished. Also we were always going to make a loss until we move further up the leagues
  11. March 2018: March 3rd: Bala (A) (28/32) As the saying goes a real six pointer here with Bala going potentially five points clear of us if they beat us. Two minutes into the game Bala grabbed the lead as J.Breese beat the offside trap and fired under J.Dixon who was slow to react. On the 16th minute they had another chance with a low shot which saw T.Matthews clearing off the line. Five minutes later Bala went two goals up as J.Breese beat the offside trap and rounded J.Dixon to fire into the empty net. Bala continued to pile forward and on the 33rd minute we came close to losing another goal with J.Dixon reacting well to deny the Bala striker. The second half started with Bala running clear of the defence but J.Dixon was on hand again to block the effort. On the hour mark we had our first real chance of the game as W.Fletcher barged into the area and fired under the keeper but the ball rattled the upright. On the 65th minute we pulled a goal back as L.Elford-Alliyu ran into the area and headed a C.Morton cross in past the keeper. Eight minutes later we levelled the scores with L.Elford-Alliyu doing the honours from close range after beating the defence to a J.N'Guessan through-ball. We were finally starting to control the game and with three minutes remaining in the game we got an undeserved winner as L.Elford-Alliyu beat the keeper to a loose ball to fire past him and into the back of the net. The three points moved us top of the table Bala 2-3 TNS J.Breese 2, 21 / L.Elford-Alliyu 65, 73, 87 J.Dixon, C.Stone (capt), T.Matthews, A.Evans, R.Pryce, R.Stambolziev, C.Roddan (R.Brobbel), I.Zmimer (J.N'Guessan), R.Parry (C.Morton), W.Fletcher, L.Elford-Alliyu Booked: R.Pryce March 9th: Injury news sees L.Hughes out for around 4-5 weeks with a pulled a hamstring he received during training. However other injury news sees G.Osborn returning from injury after a fortnight out with a twisted knee March 15th: More injury news sees R.Parry out for around two weeks with a chest injury picked up in training

    Also how else can we attract more people here, having done a quick count we currently have only six regular writers here. I know their are more that come and read etc but we need to try and bring in more

    Cheers guys, . I agree we should put some sort of threshold on some of the stories. That is why this year we didn't bother to have a Fantasy Story of the Year. Like Dave said we could go down the route of, if we don't have more that say four stories in a category then that year we wont have it (If you get what I mean) Also with Funniest Writer I am inclined to do away with that one until we get any comedy stories. Like I said in the awards I won it two years in a row and in truth none of my stories have any sort of humour apart from the odd funny name that's about it. As for the Hall of Fame, that's one reason I put a link to each of the stories in the preliminary voting thread and we also have the archive. Maybe next year I should put a link to each persons name so newer members of the forum could have a glance at some of their stories etc... I don't know how we could change the Hall of Fame and in truth I'm not sure we should. As tenthreeleader once said it's not supposed to be easy to get into which I agree with. However if anyone has suggestions regarding this let us know, it won't do any harm in looking.

    A cracking performance just a shame about the result. It's looking very good for the future Mr Fuller

    Season Two 2017/18: July 2017: The pre-season began with a 2-0 loss to Gateshead and this was followed by a 3-0 loss to Middlesbrough which in truth I wasn't too bothered about as we did perform quite well against our more elite competitors. We then faced Welsh side Airbus UK and beat them 3-1 with C.Johnson grabbing a goal and M.Thalassitis grabbing himself a brace. The final game of the pre-season saw my side beating Chesterfield U23's 3-2 with J.Atkinson, R.Allassani and S.Forte all scoring. The bookies have made us 3rd favourites for promotion at 4-1. The gaffer made some free signings this month with Stephen Akbas and Charlie Oliver joining after being released by their previous clubs. Theo Lewis is our next signing who has joined from Havant & W on a free. S.Akbas is an 18yr old right back, T.Lewis is a 25yr old attacking midfielder and C.Oliver is a 19yr old centre back He also let N.Cummins leave on a free to join Maidenhead Financially we made another loss of £227,020 with the bank balance standing at £7,142,577
