FM13: Lower League Players Thread

Recommended Posts

Just a couple for those playing as BSP or higher rep BSN/S clubs...

Name: Richie Baker

Age: 24

Position(s): MC (can also play DR, WBR, MR, AMR and AMC if needed)

Ideal Role/Duty: I have him excelling as a DLP on support

Current Club: Barrow

Country: England

Work Permit: No

Transfer Fee: £3.5K (starts transfer-listed for £5K), £425 pw

Club & League Signed For: Alfreton (BSP)

Name: Conan Byrne

Age: 27

Position(s): AMR (can also play MR, MC and AMC)

Ideal Role/Duty: Winger (attack)

Current Club: Shelbourne

Country: England

Work Permit: No

Transfer Fee: £3K (starts transfer-listed), £475 pw

Club & League Signed For: Alfreton (BSP)

As good a defensive central mid as you'll find at this level, and probably L2 as well. He wouldn't sign for me at Alfreton though, so you may only be able to get him at the bigger Conference clubs given his reputation and wage demands.

Just a quick question. Why are places like Curaçao and Reunion recommended nations to load for players? They're very random. Does someone have inside information into the best countries for regens? Always wondered this.

Halleson Thiago Borbosa Honorato - Philco might be out of the range of most Blue Square Teams... last time i looked my transfer budget was 500 pounds (not five hundred thousand - just five hundred) so 10m might be pushing my luck with the board =]

On previous versions you could find a lot of free players from these nations who were far too good for non-league. Seems to have been toned down for FM13 though as it's much harder to get them to come to England for part-time or non-contract terms, as it should be.

Name: Luca Scapuzzi

Age: 21

Position(s): ST (can also play AMLRC)

Ideal Role/Duty: Advanced forward (attack)

Current Club: Man City

Country: Italian

Work Permit: No

Transfer Fee: 30K*, 1.2K per week

Club & League Signed For: Wycombe (BSP)

*I actually signed him as City transfer listed him at the end of the first season, but I have also seen him on loan to BSP clubs in the first season. So you could loan him for a season and then sign him permanently if you can muster up some funds.

Current Club: Dundee

Country:Scotland

Work Permit:No

Transfer Fee:30k

Club & League Signed For:Signed for my Tonbridge side after we won promotion to the 2nd Division(2014)

This guy is just scoring for fun,Scouts tell me he will be a good Championship striker of the future(I can well believe it).The only problem I have is that he would not sign for me without a release clause to a higher Division side -500k-,I am worried sick every time he scores some club will activate the clause :(

I don't know if this is the right place but how do I load countries like Reunion and Curaçao into my game so I have their players available?

At the the game set up screen when you start a new game you need to select " custom installation"

Position(s): M RLC / AM C

Ideal Role/Duty: Deep Playmaker

Current Club: Wroxham

Country: England

Work Permit: No

Transfer Fee: Free (Is on non contract)

Club & League Signed For: AFC Hornchurch

An exciting midfielder that adds quality to lower level teams who only have physical brutes at their disposal. Also possesses fantastic versatility being able to play anywhere in midfield while also have unconvincing- competent for all defensive positions. I have adopted a deep playing play-maker role for him in recent games and he has excelled. Has also scored some cracking goals from long range and is my current top scorer.

The top players on my Harrow Hill side (all signed on free transfer since I edited the club into BSN and started from scratch for players and staff):

Mirko Ranieri (Italian GK- mentioned previously, remains the best keeper I have had on lower sides)

Steffan Jones (Welsh DRC- a rock in the center of my defense)

Takura Mtandari (Canadian DRC, already mentioned in thread- team captain)

Solomon Shields (MC- my undesignated playmaker in the middle of a 451)

Dali Gonzalez, Jack Lyons (SC- forward tandem for the club)

Leigh Smith (AML- right footer who has scored plenty)

Matt Harris (AMR- bookend who usually sets up Smith, but has scored several nice goals)

Erik Hummel (DMC- works well in front of Jones, steady)

There are some very capable players in the trial day squads. When I start a lower league game, I tend to shortlist a number of them who look impressive in terms of stats, and try to sign them after watching them.

don't know much about him, only he can play anywhere

I'm managing Havant & Waterlooville and up to 2015/16, got him at the start of the game in the BSS and up in the BSP now. Decent stats and as you said can play pretty much anywhere. For me he's mostly played cm, cb and lb. Not going to get you many goals or assists or grab the headlines but his versatility is reason alone to sign him, he's a steady hand who can fill in anywhere, lowest seasonal average for me in the three years I have him is 6.98. The Denis Irwin of LLM is probably the best description!

A few that I've managed to get that aren't mentioned (I think!) yet:

Name: Jeremy Helan

Age: 21 at start of game

Position(s): DL natural/ WB/ M L accomplished

Ideal Role/Duty: Full Back/ Wing Back support

Current Club: Man City

Country: England

Work Permit: N/A

Transfer Fee: Free Transfer

Club & League Signed For: Havant & Waterlooville, BSS, end of first season

An FM reliable for LLM, toned down a bit but still has the potential to do the job up to the Championship.

Name: Jack Byrne

Age: 17 at start of game

Position(s): MC

Ideal Role/Duty: DLP support

Current Club: Man City

Country: England

Work Permit: N/A

Transfer Fee: Free Transfer

Club & League Signed For: Havant & Waterlooville, BSS, end of first season

Good eye for a pass and keeps things ticking over in the engine room, also pops up with a few goals. Good potential and once he gets games goes from strength to strength.

Name: Johnny Goddard

Age: 19 at start of game

Position(s): DMC/ MC

Ideal Role/Duty: Defensive Mid Support/ Ball Winning Mid Defend

Current Club: Reading

Country: England

Work Permit: N/A

Transfer Fee: Free Transfer

Club & League Signed For: Havant & Waterlooville, BSS, end of first season

14 tackling, determination, influence and natural fitness.

Name: Jacob Walcott

Age: 20 at start of game

Position(s): AMC

Ideal Role/Duty: Advanced Playmaker/ Attacking Mid Support

Current Club: Oxford? I got him free from them end of first season, could be free at the start of the game

Country: England

Work Permit: N/A

Transfer Fee: Free Transfer

Club & League Signed For: Havant & Waterlooville, BSS, end of first season.

The non league Zidane for me. 40 goals & 18 assists for me playing in the hole in 2 1/2 seasons since I got him. I haven't felt this way about a player since Kim Kallstrom in CM 01/02. :eek::lol:

Name: Daniel Gudmundsson

Age: 21 at start of game

Position(s): DRC

Ideal Role/Duty: CD defend/ stopper

Current Club: Fylkir

Country: England

Work Permit: N/A

Transfer Fee: Loan at start of game for 3 months and then his contract is up end of October first season

Club & League Signed For: Havant & Waterlooville, BSS

Great for LLM stopper stats, 15 influence and my club captain.

Name: Caolan Lavery

Age: 19 at start of game

Position(s): ST/ AMC

Ideal Role/Duty: still trying to figure that out. Cracking stats for BSN/BSS/ League 2. Coaches say Trequartista but equally good as Complete Forward/ DLF

Current Club: Sheff Weds

Country: England

Work Permit: N/A

Transfer Fee: Free Transfer

Club & League Signed For: Havant & Waterlooville, BSS, end of second season

Tranquiestra

Dulwich hamlet

I signed him for maidenhead, gave him a good mentor and threw him into the first team. Has been inconsistent, which is expected at his age but his attributes climb quickly. My coaches believe he'll be a leading league 2 striker so can see him eventually being a decent performed in league 1/championship.

annoyed, Mirko Ranieri (I think it was him) turned my team down for BBS :( had 5 stars in both so would have been a superb buy

looked through National Squads, found a fair few of the players here, none would come :( this guy did

Can you get Jamie Longworth from Queens Park as striker? He should be available for free as on an amateur contract. If that works, try some others in that team/league as their status might allow you to acquire them for nothing on a low wage.

Name:Mirko Ranieri

Age:20

Position(s):GK

Ideal Role/Duty:

Current Club:None

Country:Italy

Work Permit:No

Transfer Fee:Free

Club & League Signed For:Signed for both my Tonbridge and Dover saves.

This guy will be a top keeper for any BSS/BSN/BSP side.

My scouts tell me he will be a leading 2nd Division keeper in the future.

I think my scouts were saying leading League One keeper. I signed him for free first season with Mansfield & had him as my first choice keeper for two seasons now. Not sure how well he'll get on in League One though, I don't think he's developed enough.

I actually signed a new keeper for League Two but that what jamesh2k is talking about happened & they were both ended up rated 2 stars so I went with Ranieri because he had a higher potential.

anyone notice scout is saying 3/4 stars for current ability, then they join and they drop 1/2 stars?

im guessing its to do with the coach/scouts

It will depend on your Assistant Manager or whoever you choose to do the team report's JPA attribute.

I think it also has to do with the quality of player at your club. For example, your best player may well be 4.5 stars but then you sign someone who is far better than him, causing him to drop to 4 stars. It only seems to happen as I'm signing players.

--------

I can't remember most of my signings for first season as Mansfield. I know I signed Nathan Ellington on a free, he did a job up front and Erik Tonne on loan, he did so well on LW that I loaned him again in second season in League Two.

Season two, my memorable signings were Richard Ofere(ST), John Pantsil(RB), Ibrahim Kargbo(CB/DM), Andrew Tuttle(CM) & Michael Hector(DC). All freebies.

Name: Rob Haworth

Age: 36

Position: ST

Current Club: Unattached

Country: English

Work Permit: No

Transfer Fee: N/A - plays on non-contract basis

Club & League Signed For: Histon (BSN)

An absolute beast of a target man for this level! Non-contract at £150 appearance and £150 per goal plus the obligatory bonuses. And if he'll sign for Histon, he'll sign for anybody! There's many a good tune played on an old fiddle.....

Some stats: Str 13, Stam 12, Nat Fit 16, Jump 15, Work rate 13, Teamwork 15, Positioning 11, Determ 19, Bravery 15, Aggression 14, Heading 12. Not bad at all for BSN!

*Edit: Been playing him for quite a few matches now - the man is a goal scoring machine as well as a target man! Averaging a staggering 8.33 and over a goal per game as well as providing most assists. BIG ROB! BIG ROB!

Took the good players from this thread and other threads from various forums and put a shortlist of 58 players together for lower league teams. Have uploaded the shortlist if anyone is interested.

http://speedy.sh/S8cGg/Non-League-List-Richard-Barnes-Jun-2012.slf

Just click on the heading in the link to download.

Updated that list now, 81 players on it, but that is obviously based on my database set up.....

It's uploaded to the FM Base forum so the DL link is from there, hope that's ok.

Samba Kanoute - Beast of a defender available as a free when starting out in the BSS or BSN. Guy is good enough for L2 and made us get promoted season 1 and am now on course to likely get promoted to L2 from BSP.

He averages something like ~8.0 all year in the BSS for me.

Dont ant to poo-poo anything but make the most of Mtandari as he has just joined Banbury United IRL and as Southern League Head Researcher I have adapted him to reflect this so in the future he may not be the player he is currently (still more or less rated as he was at Spurs)
