Breaking Conference South News - Faulkhead Takes Over Gosport

It's reported Gosport Borough have appointed unknown Australian manager Aidan Faulkhead ahead of the 2014/15 Vanarama Conference South season.

More to follow...

Here at the Non-League Football Paper we've managed to interview new Gosport manager Aidan Faulkhead for the first time since taking over the club in the Vanarama Conference South.

[Reporter] Hello Aidan I'd like to get straight if that alright, how exactly did you manage to get the job when with all respect nobody has even heard of you or your previous work?
[Faulkhead] Yeah no worries, actually the chairman and I go a long way back I've known Danny Mckay since back in his days in Australia. At the time I was managing my local side Hallett Cove Kings and his company were our main sponsors so we met through our mutual interests and interest in the game. To cut a long story short though Danny and I always shared the same philosphy of the game and he thought I was doing some great work in the Victorian Premier league with Bentleigh Greens and gave me this oppurtunity after interviewing for the job.

[Reporter] So you got the job because your friends with the chairman, surely that's a poor way to run a club in appointing friends instead of someone who deserves the job?
Faulkhead] Hey wait a minute I didn't get this job because i'm a friend of the chairman. I admit I got an oppurtunity to be considered for the job because the chairman knows myself and my work, but I had to go through the process just like every other manager that was inteviewed for the job on my previous success and work.

[Reporter] Okay my apologies, where do you see the club and what are your ambitions going forward?
Faulkhead] Thankyou the last thing I want is for people to feel I was given this job not deserved the job. Our main aim is in the long term to make the club stable and self sufficient while taking the next step and going professional.
We want this club to be able to survive by itself and not go down the path many clubs do and find themselves in financial trouble or having to keep borrowing money to stay afloat and competitive.

[Reporter] How long do you think that will take?
[Faulkhead] We haven't set a time on our goals, we see them as a long term plan to set this club on a solid and self sufficient footing.

[Reporter] We at the Non-League Paper appreciate you taking time out to have an interview with us and hope to catch up again in the future.
[Faulkhead] No worries anytime.

That concludes our interview with the new Gosport manager Aidan Faulkhead. He'll have a lot to prove getting the job ahead of local managers and his supposed friendship with the clubs chairman Danny McKay.
wrong area again ffs
agh sob it is too lmao

can a mod please move it over for me thank you.
hahaha my bad i probably ovreacted just so many in the wrong place hahaha

Pre season of woe for Faulkhead and Gosport Borough

Gosport Borough have been left winless this pre season and the pressure is already mounting on the chairman for his appointment of close friend Faulkhead. Faulkhead's reign started at Privett Park with a 2-3 loss to Dorchester with striker Matthew Paterson scoring a brace in an otherwise disappointing start to Faulkhead's career in England. Gosport dominated the match but their wayward shooting cost them as Dorchester hit on the counter in the 66th and 70th minute and held on for the win.

The rest of the pre season was as disappointing with a 2-4 loss to Portsmouth, a goalless lost to Hamptons & Richmond Borough and lastly a 1-1 draw to non league Frome Town. Faulkhead and the Gosport team will be looking to get off to a better start in the league kick off against freshly overtaken Chelmsford.

Rough start for relegation favourites Gosport Borough Gosport manager Aidan Faulkhead after another loss on the weekend

A season of struggles have been predicted for Gosport and new manager Aidan Faulkhead and his team have shown why with a dismal opening display against the much fancied Chelsford side thanks to a hattrick from Chelsford striker Tarum Dawkins. A poor showing from the Gosport defence helped Chelmsford take the lead early and even though Gosport got a goal back they never actually looked like pulling off a result against a dominant Chelmsford.
A jubilant Mark Hawkes said after the game " We never let them get on top of us and we could and probably should have won by more goals but it wasn't to be and we're just happy with a positive result to start the season".

Gosport dished up more of the same Wealdstone in front of a disappointed Privett Park crowd of 317 fans at home, again losing 3-1after opening the scoring in the 57th minute to concede 3 with 20 minutes. Gosport finally got their first points of the season against Maidenhead with a 88th minute winner from midfielder Stuart Green but followed up the match with a 4-1 hammering by Weston-super-Mare and injuries to two key midfielders Stuart green who scored before limping off injured and Steve Ramsey. Faulkhead finally got the win the team was looking for against Concorde Rangers thanks to super sub Adam Wilde and Frederic Champion in what was an even match eventually winning 3-2 away.

Gosport will be more than worried that their front two of Patterson and Saez have hardly looked threatening up front with only 1 goal between them in their first 5 games and have conceded 13 goals in total.
Eh, rough start but a form reversal should be coming soon, I can feel it!

Gosport fans want Faulkhead out!

With Gosport Borough continuing to struggle in the league their has been a growing atmosphere at Privett Park for the sacking of current manager Aidan Faulkhead from the fans with their latest embarrassment a 1-4 loss to Hayes & Yeading United albeit striker Matthew Paterson not helping his manager cause with a red card in the 16th minute.

Stuart McMillan the head of the Boro Boro supporters group had this to say. "We consider ourselves pretty patient lot we know we're not going to be able to challenge for title but we expect to see better than this, the players don't even look like winning atm and something has to change. The club has only managed 2 wins all season and do they even have a defence it's shambolic and Faulkhead looks out of his depth at this level. He should go back to Australia and put another Shrimp on the BBQ".

Thing are looking bleak for a frustrated manager and fan base but if one thing is in the clubs favour it is that time is left to change it around should the club act now and consider Faulkhead a bad acquisition.

Tell that supporter to stop using crappy stereotypes!

Faulkhead told to turn it around or be sacked

It's reported Gosport Borough are reportedly losing patience with their manager after an emergency board meeting at Privett Park was called this Wednesday. The board members were seen entering the facilities with manager Aidan Faulkhead arriving not long after. The meeting went on for 3 long hours ending at 7:30pm with the manager and board in tow. We failed to get an answer when asking what the meeting was for or failed to find out what the meeting was for but rumours are Faulkhead needs to turn the clubs circumstances around or he will be sacked and soon.

Tough start continues for Gosport Borough

After securing thier first win of the season Gosport continued to disappoint with three straight losses to Boreham Wood 2-3, Whitehawk 1-3 and Bromley 2-3 and after such a run of dismal displays Gosport manager had a tactical change to a fluid 4-2-3-1 Wide and has managed to turn things around slightly for the bottom dwellers. A win at home to mid table Hemel Hempstead 2-1 and a following draw against table toppers Bath and Eastbourne Boro and a 0-4 loss to Ebbsfleet. The club still find themselves in 20th spot on the table, just 1 point above the bottom dwellers St.Albans.
Gosport players before the FA Cup qualifier

Faulkhead experimented in their FA Cup 2nd qualifiers round against a Basingstoke Town side sitting pretty in the same league but came out with a encouraging 1-1 draw. The team's passing of the ball was a lot better and looked more patient on the ball, Gosport managed a defiant 3-2 away win in the 2nd leg with new winger Jules Marsaud and striker Paco Saez on the score sheet the latter with a brace. Progressing through to the 3rd qualifier round Gosport found themselves playing Hemel Hempstead but failed to reproduce their league result and fell to an insipid 2-5 home loss and have little chance to turn it around away from home.
