Now, time to meet my alter ego Clive Hackett.

After waiting for a few months, I've finally been given my first break in football management at Blue Sqaure North side Boston Utd.

3192484684_5ca3285907.jpg

Current League Table - With us having just 9 games left to play, my sole aim for the rest of this season is to steady the ship and make sure we are safe from relegation.

Sqaud - A quick glance at the sqaud reveals that we probably could do with another striker or two. However, I will get through the rest of the season with the players I have.

If anyone has any other screenshot requests iIll be be happy to provide them and I hope everyone enjoys reading my career thread :)

Good luck with the save!

Keeping the club out of relegation shouldn't be hard to do - its next season that Im looking forward to :)

Maybe a shot of the most promising youth intakes?

Thanks abulezz. I will have a some screenshots of any promising youth intake in next seasons preview although, I doubt they will be any good :).

Also,I've only just noticed the spelling mistake in my thread title so I'm getting that changed now ;)

Boston United - Blue Square BET North - 2011/12 Season Review (Joined March 2012)

Blue Square BET North - 14th

I joined with the club sitting 15th in the table and I was given the task of making sure that there was no danger of relegation. Well, with just two defeats in the remaining nine games we had, it was comfortable mid-table finish for us.

F.A Trophy - Knocked out in 2nd round

We were knocked out before I arrived.

F.A Cup - Knocked out in 3rd Qualifying round

Again, we were knocked out before I arrived at the club.

Transfers & Squad

Transfers - All transfers were made by the previous manager.

Sqaud - I decided to finish the remaining nine games with the squad that I inherited from the previous manager while I tried to figure out what positions needed strengthening during pre-season. I can say for sure that we are in need of a striker, a couple of central midfielder's and a new right back however, I will need to cut the wage bill before I'm able to bring in the players I want.

Key Players

Kevin Austin - Despite his age, Austin produced some amazing defensive displays.

Levi Porter - The former Leicester City trainee showed great quality on the left however, he can be a little inconsistent at times.

Jérémy Judith - The young winger caused opposition defences a lot problems in the final nine games of the season.

Dali Gomez - Scored some crucial goals at the back end of the season. Could play a big role for us next season as well.

Finances - The finances are not in great as is the case with most clubs at this level. My main concern during this pre-season will be trying to reduce the clubs over loaded wage bill.

Boston United - 2012/13 Mid-Season update

Blue Square Bet North - 2nd

It's been a strong start to the season and as was predicted at the start of the season, we are well in the hunt for promotion. In the summer I pretty much built a whole new squad, and it took a little while for the new players to settle down and gel as a team(we only won 1 league game in our first 5) but at the moment we are going along very nicely with a spot in the playoffs looking very secure. However, I still hold some hope of Histon throwing away their lead at the top(we are the only side to beat them in the league this season).

FA Cup - Knocked out in the second round

When managing a side at this level I rarely pay attention to domestic cups, with the focus on getting my teams up the divisions. However, this years cup run with Boston has been a great experience. We managed to cause some upsets by beating BSP sides Cambridge and Mansfield, plus we came agonisingly close to forcing a replay against League 2 side Shrewsbury, but slopping defending from a corner in the 94th minute meant they won in what was quite an extraordinary game 5-4 - Match Overview.

FA Trophy - Into the second round

Another cup competition that we have performed well in so far, and a home game against BSP side Kettering awaits us in the second round.

I would be gutted if at the end of the season we were not at least in the playoffs. I've still got my sights set on trumping Histon to the title, but the way they have being playing this season, I can't see seem them slipping up.

We're on a great run of form at the moment, winning our last 6 leagues and Histon's form has stuttered, so we could make a late push for the title.

How big's the gap now?

6 points with 15 games left to play(A one point I think the gap was around 12 or 13 points). We've now won our last 10 league games, and kept 5 clean sheets in a row :)

Boston United - 2012/13 Season Review

Blue Square Bet North - 2nd

2nd at the half-way stage and that's where we would finish, but we did have a brief spell at the top of the table. A 14 match unbeaten run mid-season gave us a real shot at actually winning the league, and with 2 games left it look as if all the hard work was going to pay off as we went two points clear at the top of the table, only to throw it away with a 1-0 defeat at home to 19th placed Worchester. We went into the final day of the season 2 points behind Histon, and we did our job beating Hinckley away 4-1, but it wasn't enough as Histon also won against Southport. In another season 91 points would have been more than enough to win the league(Droylsden won it with 75 points last season) but we had to settle for the playoffs.

In the playoff Semi-Finals 5th placed Nuneaton were our opponents and the first leg away from home didn't go to plan as a shaky defensive performance added with our failure to create any clear cut chances, resulting in a 3-1 defeat. Despite the 2 goal deficit, I was confident that with the home crowd behind us, we could overturn the lead and reach the playoff final. The game got off to a great start as Dali Gomez put us in front after 10 minutes, but from there it just went downhill and as we went in search for goals, the defence was left wide open, allowing Nuneaton to put 3 goals past us. We will spend at least another season in the Blue Sqaure Bet North.

Playoff Semi-Finals Leg 1 | Leg 2

FA Cup - Knocked out in the 2nd round

FA Trophy - Knocked out in the 4th round

We exceeded expectations by reaching the 4th round, but unfortunately Blue Square Premier side Lincoln were too strong for us.

Squad

Transfers

3 players came in during the season and they were : Ross Smith, Jake Nicholson and Nathan Byrne

Finances

Not looking good. Top of the agenda will be reducing the wage bill.

Key Players

Ross Smith - Our best defender. Solid at the back and also chipped in with some crucial goals.

Mohammed Sylla - Provided assists and goals from the right wing

Cristian Baz - Topped the league's assists table. A brilliant season for Baz.

Trésor Kandol - Prolific at this level, but unfortunately his 36 league goals were not enough to give him the title of the league's top goalscorer. That went to Histon's Danny Webber who scored 37 goals.

Dali Gomez - Supported Kandol well up-front. His contract is up in the summer and I will probably let him go to help reduce the wage bill.

Oh, bad luck in the playoffs. I was expecting you to cruise through them, especially considering you finished 24 points ahead of Nuneaton.

Without Histon in the league next year, I would imagine you'll be one of the favourites for automatic promotion.

Good progress, shame to lose in the playoffs.

Thanks for the comments everyone :)

It was disappointing to not get promoted, but we've made great progress since my arrival and I'm sure this year will be our year :D
