Hello and welcome to my story of such I guess! This is my first time writing on the site, in fact it's my first time writing on Football Manager if I'm honest and I am have very good feelings ahead of this, I have been reading a few stories and what not to grasp the 'element' of writing and looked around at how to 'code' so hopefully I get this right. As you can see by the title I will be managing my hometown club and the team I support, AFC Fylde who play in the National League North and have played in this league for a year, this year will mark our second season after narrowly missing out to Barrow on the last day of the season, that was a very horrible day for me if I'm being honest! Anyway, I aim to take the Coasters up to the Premier League and eventually become a world beating side, that all shall fear.
But why have I chosen Fylde? Well as I said, they are the club I support and I have done from a very young age, around eight or nine and I'm now 18 so ten years and I've seen it all, that's the life of a non-league club fan. But back to the point, I also picked them as they have a fantastic squad at their disposal and the temptation of building a team up from the bottom tier of the game to the very top again (I did this on FM13 with Boreham Wood) was far too much for me so I decided to start this as you can see. Fylde are also a very 'rich' side for this league and we are building a much bigger and nicer, from what I've seen stadium ready for the 2016/17 campaign and everyone is very excited as we look to be once again challenging to be promoted, currently we are top when I write this and alongside it, we are going on a little cup run after beating Barrow 1-0 in the 4th Qualifying Round (hooray ) we play League One Millwall and the whole town seems to be talking about it, anyway enough of the rambling onto the next thing!
Of course a lot of you won't know too much about AFC Fylde so I thought I'd write a short bit about the club. We were founded in 1988 and originally called Kirkham & Wesham and play at Kallamergh Park, the new stadium hasn't got a name yet (I believe) and we are currently playing at the highest we have ever played at after being stuck in the Northern Premier League for four years. We probably also have the most ambitious fans too, as seen in the picture I will attach above under this topic name, it'll be a big ask for us to get to the Premier League by 2022 (that's what they're saying.) The manager at the moment is Dave Challinor but whether or not he will remain manager throughout this story is a mystery but anyway, history wise we have very little to our name due to the 'recent' founding of the club but we have the FA Vase, Northern Premier League title and more to our name. Hopefully this short piece gave you enough brief information needed.
So yeah! I hope this little introduction is the start of a great little thing to read and write for the both of us, me and you, the reader. I'm very nervous about this however I know this is something very fun and I'm extremely looking forward to it. I will aim to write as much as possible each time I update so there's always something interesting and I will be writing in a first person type of style by the way, so I won't be writing like this throughout the entirety of the piece don't worry. But finally I'd like to say thank you to all the people who have welcomed me onto the site as it's been amazing so thank you to them and Up The Coasters!
