Hey all,

The Club

Bottesford Town FC

Bottesford Town Football Club is a football club based in Bottesford, Lincolnshire, England. They are currently members of the Northern Counties East League Premier Division and play at Birch Park in Scunthorpe. They have a well established fan base known as Bottesford Barmy Army or BBA

The club were established in 1974 and joined the Lincolnshire League.[2] In 1977–78 they finished bottom of the Premier Division, but were not relegated as it was expanded from 14 to 16 clubs.[3] However, after finishing second-from-bottom the following season, they were relegated to Division One. In 1987 the league was reduced to a single division, which the club became members of.

In 1986–87 they won the League Cup, a feat they repeated in 1988–89 and 1989–90.[1] The latter season also saw them win the league for the first time, and they went on to retain the title for the next two seasons.[4] They were runners-up in 1993–94, and in 2000 they joined the Premier Division of the Central Midlands League. After finishing third in their first season in the division, they were promoted to the Supreme Division.[5] However, they were relegated back to the Premier Division at the end of the 2002–03 season after finishing bottom of the Supreme Division.[5]

In 2005–06 Bottesford finished third in the Premier Division, earning promotion to the Supreme Division. The following season saw them crowned league champions, resulting in promotion to Division One of the Northern Counties East League.[5] In 2015–16 they finished third, qualifying for the promotion playoffs. After beating Hallam 2–0 in the semi-finals, they won the final against AFC Emley 4–3 on penalties following a 1–1 draw to earn promotion to the Premier Division.

The Challenge

I've downloaded the 9th tier add on for the english league & we must take 9th tier Bottesford Town from the Northern Counties East Football League Division One to the champions league, no time limit - just a ridiculously hard challenge.

This is going to be tough, we have zero money & can't sign any players to a paid contract.

Enjoy the journey.
