Has Anybody tried to manage at the very bottom off the football league and work their way up to the premiership?

At the moment i am managing Hinckley who do not have a very good team even for a blue square north team.The board want to stay safe but i decided to go for a big push up for promotion which the media think is crazy and unachievable.
The main thing that i done is get a parent club as i have two in leicester and an unknown club called barwell i changed them to Coventry. This gave me a few good signings and because of these signings by halfway through the season i was 4th.

In the end i won promtion through the playoffs in extra time and am now in a desperate battle to survive relegation in the blue square premier.Where i am currently 20th with 23 points from 22 games.

Can anybody else tell me how there doing down there?
I've been wrestling with my home town of Chester for a while (who might be going in to administration this summer, bad times) and i've managed to get them to the championship, but thats taken me 9seasons so far!

Write a blog about your lower league exploits?

I've been blogging my progress with Newport County. We're in very good shape to get promoted to League 1 this season. 8)
I sometimes start with AFC Wimbledon, they have a good fan base which generates a lot of income when you climb up the leagues...

You have to rely on seeking out good youngsters and selling them off for profit after a year or two...

But they are in the south...
