A Monmouth Task A new career update for me and my first in several months. This time I'm going for a youth only challenge with newly promoted to the Welsh second tier Monmouth Town F.C. It's not much of a starting point - the mammoth task of toppling TNS, let alone European domination, seems a long way out of reach. Here's my band of merry men who will be key, in the short-term at least:
The club was founded in 1972 as the ethnically Croatian side NK Croatia Berlin and was renamed NK Hajduk Berlin in 1985. The association continued to grow through the late 1980s, merging with SC Bratsvo 1971 Berlin to become SC Bratsvo-Hajduk Berlin in 1987. The following year a number of smaller clubs (NK Livno, NK Velebit, NK Dinamo) came into the fold until finally a 14 January 1989 merger with SV Croatia 1987 Berlin spawned the present-day club. SD Croatia Berlin became the first Croatian club in Germany to reach third tier competition when promoted to the Regionalliga Nordost after their 1998 Oberliga Nordost, Staffel Nord (IV) championship. SD Croatia Berlin spent only a single season at that level before suffering through a series of reverses. They slipped to the Verbandsliga Berlin (V) in 2001, through the Landesliga Berlin (VI) in 2003, to the Bezirksliga Berlin (VII). In 2005 it rose back to the Landesliga, in the seventh level since 2008, and fell down to the Bezirksliga by 2010. Three successive promotions after three years in the Bezirksliga put them back in the Berlin-Liga (VI). SD Croatia Berlin competed in the Croatian World Club Championship in 2007. So this is what we're going to do, I am Croat/ German Hans Nakamura (keeping Nakamura so I can tell if I ever get a son to come through) and we are starting in the 6th tier of German football in the Berlin-Liga and we are going to build up, hopefully to the top of Germany using Croatian academy players, I've loaded Croatia as well so hopefully I can get feeder clubs to send players too and maybe affiliates to get players from.
