On Top Of The Weld: A Titanic Challenge Introduction The Harland & Wolff cranes Samson and Goliath dominate the skyline in Belfast. Now diversifying into repairs, civil engineering and offshore energy, Harland & Wolff are most famous for being one the greatest shipmakers of all time. The White Star Line ships Olympic, Britannic and of course the Titanic were all built by Harland & Wolff. In the height of it's heyday H & W employed thousands of people from the city and one faction of these, the Welders, decided to set up their own Football & Social Club in 1965. In I come as a young up-and-coming manager with a dream of making Harland & Wolff famous for it's youth academy as well as it's ships. It's going to be a titanic challenge though, considering we're starting without a youth setup at all... We're also expected to finish 11th out of 12, so it could be a tough first season. Key Players Yes that's right, our best player is 41 years old . I reckon we can get a couple more seasons out of him. McKeown is exactly the kind of experienced player you need in your side, his mental attributes are very impressive, though his pace is woeful. Not the most technically gifted strikers, but he makes up for it with pace, movement and composure. Our only foreigner, but you certainly wouldn't mess with him! He's a man mountain at 6'5 and will sit in our midfield to win it in the air or on the ground and move it on. McMurray is the injection of pace in our backline, helping cover for the lack of pace in players like McKeown.
