After our promotion I was hoping for consolidation in League 1

Wow, after gaining promotion I didn't expect another, I thought we were good enough to beat [URL="http://img521.imageshack.us/img521/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"]Portsmouth in the Final[/URL] and now I have the tough task of getting a Championship standard team!

[URL="http://img842.imageshack.us/img842/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"][B]F.A Cup[/B][/URL] - Two easy ties then a tough one! Shame it wasn't a away tie.

[B][URL="http://img171.imageshack.us/img171/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"]Carling Cup[/URL][/B] - Not that important for me this season.

[B][URL="http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"]Johnstone's Paint Trophy[/URL][/B] - Thought we'd have a chance of winning this, I was wrong!.

[URL="http://img694.imageshack.us/img694/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"][B]Kent Senior Cup[/B][/URL] - A cup to go into our cabinet.

[URL="http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/8841/sittingbournesquadplaye.png"][B]Squad[/B][/URL] - Only a couple of additions due to me being over my wage budget.

[URL="http://img856.imageshack.us/img856/1755/sittingbourneboardroomf.png"][B]Finances[/B][/URL] - Still ok, promotion should help.

After a tough start we had a good spell when I thought we may make the Play-Offs but our form dipped and we had to settle for mid table.

[URL="http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/5744/sittingbournefixturesfiu.png"][B]F.A Cup[/B][/URL] - Out at the first stage, not happy.

[B][URL="http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"]Carling Cup[/URL][/B] - Out of another cup at the first stage.

[URL="http://img855.imageshack.us/img855/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"][B]Kent Senior Cup[/B][/URL] - Another title.

[URL="http://img803.imageshack.us/img803/8841/sittingbournesquadplaye.png"][B]Squad[/B][/URL] - Didn't bring anyone in to start with, we struggled so I added, we now have a decent squad.

After last seasons Mid-Table finish I was hoping for maybe a push for a Play-Off place

I really didn't expect promotion but we are Premier League! We beat [URL="http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/1945/sittingbournevwiganinfo.png"]Wigan in the Play-Off Final[/URL] quite easily but now the hard work starts, keeping Sittingbourne in the Premier League with a small stadium and probably the smallest budget too.

[URL="http://img577.imageshack.us/img577/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"][B]F.A Cup[/B][/URL] - We beat a understrength Liverpool team in the 4th Round but crashed out in the 5th.

[B][URL="http://img840.imageshack.us/img840/4299/sittingbournefixturesfib.png"]Carling Cup[/URL][/B] - Wolves were just too strong for us.

[URL="http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"][B]Kent Senior Cup[/B][/URL] - Put out a mix of Youth and First teams, knocked out on penalties.

[URL="http://img651.imageshack.us/img651/8841/sittingbournesquadplaye.png"][B]Squad[/B][/URL] - A few additions in the Summer really made our squad strong, can see me bringing in a few more this Summer.

[URL="http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/1755/sittingbourneboardroomf.png"][B]Finances[/B][/URL] - Still in the black however we made a loss, Premier League revenue should help out!.

[B][SIZE=4] Sittingbourne - Premiership - 2022/23[/SIZE][/B]

A surprise promotion to the top flight, I was hoping to balance the books to make a healthy profit and build a team ready for life in the Championship

[/URL][/B]
It was inevitable, we did go down but I feel as if I now have a good enough squad to bounce straight back up without spending a fortune on the wages. There are some talented youngsters who deserve to be in the top flight, hopefully we can get back up.

[URL="http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"][B]F.A Cup[/B][/URL] - West Ham just too good for us.

[B][URL="http://img853.imageshack.us/img853/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"]Carling Cup[/URL][/B] - A mixed squad crashed out against a poor Blackpool team.

[URL="http://img99.imageshack.us/img99/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"][B]Kent Senior Cup[/B][/URL] - Thought we would win this.

[URL="http://img834.imageshack.us/img834/8841/sittingbournesquadplaye.png"][B]Squad[/B][/URL] - Bought in a few younger players and got rid of a few of the deadwood, think we have a competitive squad for Championship football.

[URL="http://img685.imageshack.us/img685/1755/sittingbourneboardroomf.png"][B]Finances[/B][/URL] - Premier League money is a blessing! We made a decent profit and now with parachute payments it should set us up.

[URL="http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/1095/petermiltonoverviewprof.png"][B]Peter Milton[/B][/URL] - Joint top goalscorer, some interest in him.

We fought our way through the season and we managed to win automatic promotion. I thought we would finish in a Play-Off place but I'm pleased with my team.

[URL="http://img59.imageshack.us/img59/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"][B]F.A Cup[/B][/URL] - Premier League Brighton were too strong for us.

[B][URL="http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"]Carling Cup[/URL][/B] - Thought we were going to do well in this competition this year however West Ham were too strong.

[URL="http://img406.imageshack.us/img406/2799/sittingbournefixturesfi.png"][B]Kent Senior Cup[/B][/URL] - A cup in our cabinet, even though it is a small cup.

[URL="http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/8841/sittingbournesquadplaye.png"][B]Squad[/B][/URL] - We have a decent squad however we will lose Peter Milton but we will hopefully have a good budget to help build the squad in the Summer.

[URL="http://img804.imageshack.us/img804/1755/sittingbourneboardroomf.png"][B]Finances[/B][/URL] - A loss was inevitable but with our Premier League bonus we should be ok again.

We stayed up, just! It was a tough season but I hope Mr. Chairman will boost our transfer funds in the Summer otherwise it will be another season of struggle.

[URL="http://imageshack.us/a/img18/2451/sittingbournefacup.png"][B]F.A Cup[/B][/URL] - We were poor, end of.

[B][URL="http://imageshack.us/a/img195/2402/sittingbourneleaguecup.png"]Carling Cup[/URL][/B] - We will do well in this competition, but not this season.

[URL="http://imageshack.us/a/img521/6641/sittingbourneksc.png"][B]Kent Senior Cup[/B][/URL] - We won it again, hoping to do this every season now.

[URL="http://imageshack.us/a/img820/8841/sittingbournesquadplaye.png"][B]Squad[/B][/URL] - I will be getting rid of the older Foreign players and bringing in some younger players for the future.

[URL="http://imageshack.us/a/img201/1755/sittingbourneboardroomf.png"][B]Finances[/B][/URL] - Thankfully the Premier League money kept us in the plus.

Was a tough decision but I think I chose the right option when I was offered this job:

Hopefully the new manager at Sittingbourne can keep them up on a shoestring budget, maybe it was too soon to go up for them, you never know, I may go back for a third spell in the future!
