November Story of the Month

At last, we've gotten Story of the Month officially underway, and following the first vote comes the first victor! It was a tense race at the beginning before our eventual champion pulled away, garnering nearly half of the vote, receiving 18 of the 42 votes cast. Having previously won this award during the FM14 season three times with two different stories, this magical author is back at it again.

Neal for The Laudrup Legacy!!!

Congratulations to Neal on his emphatic victory, the first Story of the Month winner of the FM15 season! With December already underway, the pressure is on to see if Neal can defend his title next month or if a new threat can rise to his throne...just keep writing, and that threat could be you!

Congratulations Nealão on being crowned SOTM winner for the first time on FM15! It's a shame the poll was overshadowed by a different one, but I think the most deserving winner came out on top :D

First of all, congrats Neal my friend! The SOTM count ticks on ;)

In other news, we'd like to welcome 5 new judges to the SOTM panel. These 5 members, Tallery, TodayAtTomorrow, Jamesg237, JasonRM and P-KIDDY, will join the panel to create a 10 man panel which will hopefully bring more variety and excitement to the SOTM competition. Congratulations to these 5, and good luck to everyone for the remainder of the SOTM season!

2014 has come and gone, but before we left, we saw a month of brilliant story writing from the entire community. From a group of 12 nominated stories, whittled down to 5, now whittled down to 1. FMScout, here is your winner.

pompeyblue managed to win the vote emphatically, gaining almost half of the 33 votes cast. His exploits with Havant and Waterlooville has been judged the best for December- but can he retain his crown?

January Story of the Month

With a new year here came a lot of new stories, as three contestants of January's Story of the Month were nominated for the first time in FM15, most notably OllieGrocott, whose new Milan story is actually his first on the site. However, this month it was a household name who reigned supreme...

Neal for The Laudrup Legacy!!!

Neal's solid tally of 11 votes out of the 33 cast in this poll meant he came out on top with a tidy 33.3% of all votes. Congratulations to Neal on collecting his second Story of the Month prize for FM15 and god knows how many he's got overall by now. (He'll have counted, so he can tell you ;) )
