Thursday night action on a balmy summer's evening
Last season we were playing as Never Odd or Even and finished the season in sixth position, see table below and note the incredible amount of positive spin that has been applied to this news.
Not sure where it all went wrong really. The previous season we finished second equal (third on goal difference) and so just missed promotion by the skin of our teeth. Perhaps we had a less settled squad than last season, perhaps we drew too many games, perhaps we need to attract some fresh talent (either in a playing or management capacity).
Ajax Trees Down and Man Dem were promoted to the Championship and moving in the other direction were our old friends and adversaries IKFC and Expected Tolouse.
Our only - pretty small - consolation, well at least we finished ahead of our rivals for the past 20 plus years, Redstar Fulwood. At the end of the present season in May 2019 I want to see a bigger gap between the two of us and, before you ask, I mean that we are a good number of places and points above them.
Supportive - Stronger Together - United
From time to time we are on the look out for new an emerging talent. If you are quite regularly at a bit of a loose end on a Thursday evening, know how to kick a ball and realise that we change sides at half time, then it sounds like you could be just the sort of fellow we'd like to meet.
Why not use the Contact page to send me an email and let's see what we can do. Hope to hear from you soon.
