Sittingbourne - League 1 - 2019/20

After our promotion I was hoping for consolidation in League 1

[/url]League Table

League Positions Graph

Wow, after gaining promotion I didn't expect another, I thought we were good enough to beat Portsmouth in the Final and now I have the tough task of getting a Championship standard team!

F.A Cup - Two easy ties then a tough one! Shame it wasn't a away tie.

Carling Cup - Not that important for me this season.

Johnstone's Paint Trophy - Thought we'd have a chance of winning this, I was wrong!.

Kent Senior Cup - A cup to go into our cabinet.

Squad - Only a couple of additions due to me being over my wage budget.

Finances - Still ok, promotion should help.

Key Player Profiles:

Mario Cowan - Another good season, hopefully another one is due.

Peter Milton - Top goalscorer, shame he won't sign a new contract.

Sittingbourne - Championship - 2020/21

The highest level this club has reached, hopefully I can get a mid table finish.

League Table

League Positions Graph

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.

F.A Cup - Out at the first stage, not happy.

Carling Cup - Out of another cup at the first stage.

Kent Senior Cup - Another title.

Squad - Didn't bring anyone in to start with, we struggled so I added, we now have a decent squad.

Finances - We made a decent profit, hopefully I will be given a bigger budget next season.

Key Player Profiles:

Mario Cowan - Still our Number 1, had a good season.

Peter Milton - Top goalscorer again, managed to get him to sign a new contract.

Sittingbourne - Championship - 2021/22

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

League Table

League Positions Graph

I really didn't expect promotion but we are Premier League! We beat Wigan in the Play-Off Final quite easily but now the hard work starts, keeping Sittingbourne in the Premier League with a small stadium and probably the smallest budget too.

F.A Cup - We beat a understrength Liverpool team in the 4th Round but crashed out in the 5th.

Carling Cup - Wolves were just too strong for us.

Kent Senior Cup - Put out a mix of Youth and First teams, knocked out on penalties.

Squad - A few additions in the Summer really made our squad strong, can see me bringing in a few more this Summer.

Finances - Still in the black however we made a loss, Premier League revenue should help out!.

Key Player Profiles:

Anis Dziri - A £250,000 signing from Inverness, great piece of transfer dealing if I say so myself!

Peter Milton - Top goalscorer again, progressed well from League 2.

Tommy Larsen - Joined on a free from Lyngby, played well this season

Sittingbourne - Premiership - 2022/23

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

League Table

League Positions Graph

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.

F.A Cup - West Ham just too good for us.

Carling Cup - A mixed squad crashed out against a poor Blackpool team.

Kent Senior Cup - Thought we would win this.

Squad - Bought in a few younger players and got rid of a few of the deadwood, think we have a competitive squad for Championship football.

Finances - Premier League money is a blessing! We made a decent profit and now with parachute payments it should set us up.

Key Player Profiles:

Peter Milton - Joint top goalscorer, some interest in him.

Scott Cousins - Joined on a free, England goalkeeper, good signing.

Sittingbourne - Championship - 2023/24

After being relegated from the top flight I wa hoping to bounce straight back up.

League Table

League Positions Graph

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.

F.A Cup - Premier League Brighton were too strong for us.

Carling Cup - Thought we were going to do well in this competition this year however West Ham were too strong.

Kent Senior Cup - A cup in our cabinet, even though it is a small cup.

Squad - 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.

Finances - A loss was inevitable but with our Premier League bonus we should be ok again.

Key Player Profiles:

Peter Milton - Top scorer again but we are losing him on a free, has done well since joining us in League 2.

Scott Cousins - Another good season, will still be our Number 1 next season.

Sittingbourne - Premier League - 2024/25

We went straight back up to the top flight so staying there was my aim

League Table

League Positions Graph

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.

F.A Cup - We were poor, end of.

Carling Cup - We will do well in this competition, but not this season.

Kent Senior Cup - We won it again, hoping to do this every season now.

Squad - I will be getting rid of the older Foreign players and bringing in some younger players for the future.

Finances - Thankfully the Premier League money kept us in the plus.

Key Player Profiles:

David Brooks - Top scorer, hopefully he will improve.

Scott Cousins - Getting old, need a younger player to come in soon as a decent back up.

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

I really didn't want to leave but this was an opportunity I couldn't really decline, hopefully I can bring more success to a Manchester United team who finished in 5th place.

Nice job in survival :thup: I wouldn't worry about Cousins yet as he's only 28 years old and a goalkeeper. Keepers can play for a while...unless you find someone better :)

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!
