  1. First season back at level 9 for the club and we decided to only bring in only backup players no player made more than four apps for the side League We had high hopes of doing well enough to stay in the league this year and we got off to a bit of a poor start with only two wins in the opening six games as Shildon south shields and Newton Aycliffe all claimed maximum points against us, we turned it round with a six game unbeaten streak as we built up some momentum before the wheels came off again as we struggle with only 4 points from 15, again we turn things around we got trounced by the league leaders South Shields as we went on to lose only three times more this season we gave it a good go but our slow start stopped us putting up much of a challenge. FA Cup Another year in the FA Cup we always do well and this year we went one better with a big win over Brokenhurst with a brace from Ryan Noble and Rowan Richardson. another big win over Wick in the Preliminary round saw us progress more big wins over Royal Wootton Basset and Shildon got us to the same point as last year this time we took on an easy opponent in Harrogate Town or so i thought but we had to drag it to a replay before progressing to the 1st round and a payday down on the south coast. and despite a brace in the 20th min by Pompy we fought back and gave them a scare but fell short, thankfully though we got a big payday as our balance rocketed to £140k FA Vase After a disappointing turnout last year we did ALOT better this time out as we got all the way to round 5 as we managed to beat Eccleshill easily and Oxhe Jets Tividale took us to a replay but and extra time winner saw us play your favourite meat substitute. We then faced Shildon and despite being outplayed a Noble goal in the 91st minute sealed a replay before an absolute trouncing so us fall. Northern League Cup We didnt do as well this year in the Northern League Brooks Mileson Memorial League cup (What a mouthful) we managed to nick a win over Marske before easing past last years winners and this years league leaders South Shields with surprising ease it should have been a lot harder than this game was before we demolished Sunderland RCA. We went into the Semi Final clash with Shildon expecting to win but we struggled to break them down and they forced penalties where we fell not getting to the final is a disappointment if im honest.
  2. So the First season in the Tenth level of English football, we had a lot of work to do as only few signings were already on board we had to bring in a few more: Dominic Barrett - the Centre back was one of three brought in with the intention of making up my back three he went on to become an ever present in the league this year scoring once and hitting a rating of 7.06 Rowan Richardson - The former Blackpool man was one of the main men in the midfield this year as he made 39 apps for us scoring 8 goals assisting with 10 goals getting a rating of 7.16 Harry Waldram - Harry picked up lots of admirers this year as he conceded only 47 times as he was a ever present in net for us he kept 15 clean sheets with a rating of 7.01 Alex Coleman - Another Centre back brought in to form the back three he went on to get a rating of 7.00 he was the solid reliable cb this year Toby Emerson - The Final centre back brought in for the back three suspension stopped him becoming a ever present this term but 35 apps and a 7.08 rating is just as good Rhain Davis - The young midfielder was originally brought in as cover to the midfield and he managed to get 16 apps under his belt to aid his development Danny Murray - Danny was signed to be a defensive minded of my midfield trio getting 40 apps even chipping in with 5 goals with a rating of 7.19 William Chappell - The striker was brought in to partner Noble up front and he did a good job notching 14 goals helping the team score 13 goals with a rating of 7.23 Jonny Murray - Jonny was signed to be a back up of Noble and Chappel he performed well off the bench scoring 8 times in 15 games Dave Morley - Morley was singed to add experience and leadership but he took the huff after not featuring in the first 5 games and was released after only one game. Aims - around the top of the league We were only expected to be around the top of the table for the excellence of our defence showed as we managed to get 15 clean sheets as we won the league at the drop of a hat, Noble was excellent for us this year couldn't have asked for anything more as he notched 30 goals from regular play in 38 games, with 7 penalties taking it to almost one goal per game as he kept a clean bill of health for the entire year, Only Team Northumbria came close to us but they were a full 17 points behind us and they failed to score against us as we drew 0-0 and beat them 2-0. FA Cup Into the FA Cup a trophy ive always had a bit of luck in we got some favorable draws as we breezed through the Qualifying rounds especially against higer division opposition we aboslutle trounced Walton every shot we took seemed to go in the net, before easy wins against Longlevens and Godalming the first realt test was against Evo stick Premier side Frickley but a quick first half blitz got us a bigger win than expected. We somehow edged the games against East Thurrock before setting up a tough tie with Gateshead. We took a 2-0 lead only to throw it away at the death to an own goal before losing the replay FA Vase The FA Vase was a massive let down as despite edging past level 9 side Chester-le-street we fell in round 2 to Wokingham to a heavy defeat we should have done alot better than we did Northern League Cup The Northern League cup was a good run as went all the way to the finalbig wins over Whickham and Whitley Bay thanks to goals from Noble we relied on an own goal to get us through the next two games as we edged past Darlington RA and West Allotment. a decent win over Morpeth in the semi final set us up for a final against a strong South Shields and we mached them as we drew in normal time exchanged goals in extra time before falling on penalties

Well like the slight sub-par Jack Reacher Movie Never go back ive been struggling to get into FM17 this year i have a massive plan for a US DB but after getting it up and running i just couldn't get into the save not sure why and a bit annoyed at myself for spending so long creating a DB to not get into the game, so after a Christmas of playing my Franchise Hockey Manager Save ive returned to Football Manager and returned to something i completed back in FM13!!! So we're starting again, this time we're a division lower sitting in Level 10 and using a db i downloaded this is going to be my save for FM17 as I'm actually getting into this save and have holded out posting until i felt i was going to stick with the save so lets dive right in! The City Durham is a historic city and the county town of County Durham in North East England. The city lies on the River Wear, to the west of Sunderland, south of Newcastle upon Tyne and to the north of Darlington. Founded over the final resting place of St Cuthbert, its Norman cathedral became a centre of pilgrimage in medieval England. The cathedral and adjacent 11th-century castle were designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986. The castle has been the home of Durham University since 1832. HM Prison Durham is also located close to the city centre. The name "Durham" comes from the Celtic element "dun", signifying a hill fort, and the Old Norse "holme", which translates to island. The Lord Bishop of Durham takes a Latin variation of the city's name in his official signature, which is signed "N. Dunelm". Some attribute the city's name to the legend of the Dun Cow and the milkmaid who in legend guided the monks of Lindisfarne carrying the body of Saint Cuthbert to the site of the present city in 995 AD. Dun Cow Lane is said to be one of the first streets in Durham, being directly to the east of Durham Cathedral and taking its name from a depiction of the city's founding etched in masonry on the south side of the cathedral. The city has been known by a number of names throughout history. The original Nordic Dun Holm was changed to Duresme by the Normans and was known in Latin as Dunelm. The modern form Durham came into use later in the city's history. The north eastern historian Robert Surtees chronicled the name changes in his History and Antiquities of the County Palatine of Durham but states that it is an "impossibility" to tell when the city's modern name came into being The club Durham City formed in 1918 and were admitted to Division Three North of the Football League in 1921. In 1928 they failed to gain re-election to the league and returned to playing in the North Eastern League, being replaced in the league by Carlisle United. The club was disbanded in 1938, but was reformed in 1950, at first playing in the Wearside League, before gaining admission to the Northern League in 1952. They were Northern League champions in 1994 and again in 2008, gaining entry to the Northern Premier League First Division North. They won that division at the first attempt and were promoted to the Premier Division. However, at the start of the 2009–10 season the club was informed by the Football Conference that they would not be allowed to progress any further up the pyramid with their artificial surface, which led to their main sponsor pulling out a week before the season was due to start. The loss of income meant that almost all the club's players left, and they turned to a local sixth-form centre to fill the team. The scratch side lost their first 28 matches and were deducted 6 points for playing a suspended player under a false name. They finally recorded their first win and points of the season on 13 March 2010 with a 2–1 victory over FC United of Manchester, and followed that with a 4–3 win in their next match at home to Whitby Town, although this was not enough to prevent relegation back to First Division North, finishing the season with 0 points (after the six-point deduction). Since Dropping back down to the Norther Football League Division one it hasnt gone as well as they planned the Team struggled on its return as they struggled to a dissapointing 15th place finish before a finish of 9th as things started to look promising now the club was bought by former Newcastle player Oliver Bernard with his intention of turning them into a North east feeder team. They struggled again the following year ending up 12th with the defense a big issue for the club having conceeded 76 goals in a 12th place finish, things were going to get a lot worse for the Citizens when in 2015-16 they only managed to win 9 of their games all season finishing 20th of the 22 clubs and being relegated to level 10 for the first time in their history The Stadium The club has occupied as many as five different grounds since its foundation. In their first season the club played at Garden House Park (near the site of the present county hall), then played for four seasons at Kepier Heughs before moving to Holiday Park (on Framwellgate Waterside) until 1938. The club's fourth ground was at Ferens Park, near the Sands area – the club stayed at this ground until forced to move due to promotion requirements in 1994. The club also gained its largest attendance ever of 7,000 at Ferens Park, when on November 7, 1957, Tranmere Rovers visited in the second round of the FA Cup, beating City 3–0. Presently the club play at New Ferens Park (also known as The Arnott Stadium) in Belmont on the northern outskirts of the city. This ground was of a very high quality by Northern League standards. It is not, however, up to Northern Premier League standards and improvements have to be made for the 2008–09 season. Currently, the ground boasts a 300-seater stand and clubhouse which also incorporates covered standing room for 600 further spectators. Spectators can also stand around the pitch as a path has been laid around the pitch. The present Chairman Stewart Dawson plans to further improve the ground with the addition of new 5- and 7-a-side all weather pitches and a standing area behind the west goal. Current attendances are estimated to be around the 200 mark. The stadium was also used as the home of the reserve team of Sunderland until they moved to The Hetton Centre for the 2006–07 season. The club has had a falling out with the owners of New Ferns Park and currently play at Consett, however this doesnt seem to be in my file i downloaded so we will stay at New Ferns Park
