Hi guys, this is my story of Aberystwyth. To start off with I will be regularly updating this will results, regens and important world news on my game. At the moment I am in my second season so for the first few updates i will be back tracking in my save. I will be managing Aberystwyth as myself, Harry Seddon. First of all my tactics

Tactics

So for most of the season i used a simple 4-4-2 formation. Nothing to difficult and confusing for my players to become familiar with. I am a poor creator of tactics so i decided to download this formation from FM Scout- http://www.fmscout.com/i-442-classic-by-ogunhaci.html If you need a 4-4-2 formation i would recommend this but there are others out there to be tried and tested.


Key Players


Jamil Adam
Jamil Adam is my best striker at the club who i brought in on a non-contract deal. If you have played previous FM's and are interested in LLM than i'm sure you will of heard of this beast. He is a very good player now and is also relatively young.

Gwyn Tipton
Tipton is my best left midfielder with good determination and is relatively fast too. Unfortunately his crossing isn't great but that can be worked on just like his passing. I bought him on a non-contract just like Jamil and i will be looking to sign him on a part time contract in the near future.


Ricky Holden
Holden is my best defender who has fairly good mental attributes but doesn't posses many good technical attributes. He is very strong which makes up for his lack of pace and he isn't to bad in the air too.

Thank you for reading :)

So during this period, after playing 6 games we gained 13 points out of the maximum 18 which isnt too bad considering that we lost to the top two teams in the league. The Afan Lido draw was difficult to take as we had 61% possession and 5 shots but 0 on target, so that was difficult.


Thanks for reading :)
Nice updates! Going okay in the league. Keep it up!

Comparing this month to the previous months of fixtures, it was quite poor despite the 10-0 win against Newtown which was surprising. After that win though we did start to take our foot off of the pedal which is disappointing as we didint make it to the final of the Premier League cup.

Thanks for reading and November's results will be updated soon.
Good luck. Hopefully you can make the Welsh League into a power.

This month was more successful than the previous points only losing against Bala away. It was also unfortunate of us to drop points against Afan Lido but u think the 2-1 win and 5-2 win against Rhyl and Newtown made up for the dropping of points.

Thanks for reading, the next update will combine December and January.
I love a welsh story and your results are decent you are probably doing as well as expected right?
