The story begins.

My name is Dennis Hall 39 years old ex sunday league player. I played for Sunderland RCA and had trials with Sunderland AFC. My day to day is unemployed but one day I would love to manage a team. I also want to become the next England manager but that will never happen.

Living in the north east of england, there are a lot of teams but all have managers ,I think.

I am looking into football teams and looking at ads for football managers. Maybe one team will take a chance on me.

Day one of looking through the advertisements for a job as a manager. There where a few jobs Carmarthen Town. And a few in the north east but they where all lower league. But as I wanted a job I applied for as many as I could.

I applied for Carmarthen first. I didn't mind moving to Wales for a job. I went to the shops and bought coffee and I knew it was going to be one of those days.

A few coffee's no word, so off I went to bed and the next morning I put the tv on and Sky Sports announced Carmarthen Town are looking into a novice manager. The man they were referring to was me. I jumped up, ran to the computer and there it was on my computer a email from Carmarthen. Inside the email were the person I need to have an interview with and times.

I called to my wife, we need to catch a train to Wales. I have a interview for a manager job.

The next day I travelled to Carmarthen. After arriving a voice shouted on the platform " your not from round ere boyo" Sorry but that was the only way of saying it.

I explained to the man and he knew who I was and took me for my interview at the training ground. The training ground was run down and looked like a school changing room. Went inside and spoke to Wendy the receptionist and she took me inside to meet Chris Edwards.

Chris Edwards is the chairmen of Carmarthen Town. We talked for a while and then out came the contract. £300 a week for 1year and to get the team into mid table.

I signed it and we made it official by a hand shake. Next where all the tv and press interviews and then we talked where Id be staying.

Chris said" I am looking forward to seeing what you can do"

First day in charge. I have arranged a meeting with my player/assistant manager Neil Smothers. I still want him to be apart of my setup. After our meeting Neilsaid " see you at training boss". Neil walked off and I knew he would of liked to be manager.

Training came and it was time for me to work them. We started of with a run around the pitch and then got the cones out for drills. One person I noticed was Craig Hanford. He wasn't interested in training and when he did, he lacked fitness.

After training finished I went to my office and sat down at the table and looked at the wages. Craig was on 3k a week for a part time player. I knew he had to go. So I put him on the transfer list.

Within the week I brought in Robbie Williams centre back and he was only on £100 a week.

Michael Higdon ex Crewe Alexandra and St Mirren striker

Mattius Bakare young midfielder who impressed on trial

Bala came in for Craig. I was offered no transfer fee but I just let him go.

Needed someone who wanted to play for us and who was cheap, so we can keep our wages down


Port Talbot away 0-0

Llanidloes away 2-5

Fleetwood Town 1-1

After the friendly's finished it was the cup draw.

Nathaniel MG cup first round Port Talbot

We had to play them again. I felt that we could beat them and we need Higdon to play
