  1. FA Cup > End of Season.......... So here we are, FA Cup 2nd round away to Boston Utd. A game which gave us great chance to get to Round 3! Things started brilliantly & we raced into a 3-0 lead after 20min & stayed that way until half time. I thought now would be a good time to rest some players & made 2 subs thinking this was in the bag.............Boston had other ideas & were absolutely destroying us & pulled it back to 3-3 to force extra time (maybe I shouldn't have made those subs).

  2. Season 3 - National League (The Start) So - a disappointing end to last season left me thinking `Have I taken Dorking as far as I can?; Will I manage to gain league status?' but I stayed thinking that we might...........just might, do it this time.

Now that FM21 has come to Xbox I can now give my first ever career blog a go. As usual, I started Unemployed & gave myself no previous experience in the hope I can take a team from non-league all the way to the PL.
