Welcome back to Local Hero, where i have taken charge of a team local to where i live which in real life play at step 11 of the English football pyramid, we are now on season 2 of the save and are looking forward to and preparing for life on Hellenic Division 1.
As you can see its been quiet overall on the transfer side of things, we have managed to bring in two new faces, we will take a closer look at those in a moment, the eagle eyed of you will notice that we have lost Owen Hickson, who was a major player for us last season but we couldn’t stop him from moving to bigger club Taunton, we also lost back up CM Alfie Evans. So i am really moving to bring in some midfielders.
So i did manage to bring in one CM in Louis Evans, and i think for this level, he is excellent, I’m really hoping his 12 passing will make a big difference in this league.
Second man in is Hayden West, he really comes in as a back up but we are in more competitions this season so he could get a few games under us belt. And i am hoping to bring more in as the season goes on.
We have 2 cup competitions for this season which, fingers crossed brings in some more income for the club which we need desperately. The board are excpecting us to reach the finals of the challenge cup, and looking at the other teams in it, this is doable.
Well this does not make for pretty viewing, but i am used to this at lower level management after a previous stint in Serie D with Sorrento, so hopefully some quick promotions will fix the situation.
In some postive news, the chairman has offered me a new 1 year contract, you would hope for a longer term contract but i suppose the nature of this level is rolling 1 year deals.
Pre Season Results
Overall a very solid pre season, i think that most of these teams are above us in stature and leagues, but it is very hard to tell lol. Hopefully we can carry on this form into the new season.
Thank you for stopping by this brief season 2 pre season blog, I’m looking forward to getting into the new season and hopefully we can carry on for last year and get promoted again.
