Salisbury F.C. - Introduction
Salisbury F.C. - A small side in the South West of England that play competitively in the Southern Premier League South. Salisbury were once a regular outfit in what is now called the Vanarama South/National league. Until recently, this is where they would play their football in competition with more well known clubs such as Hartlepool, Chesterfield, and Aldershot for a place in the football league.
Unfortunately for fans of the club, they've never been able to see their club in the football league, the highest level Salisbury have reached is considered to be the FA Cup 2nd round in 2006 in which they held Nottingham Forest to a 1-1 draw, the replay saw them turned over 2-0.
A few years later in 2012, they would reach the 3rd round for the first time in their history, in which they were beaten 3-1 by Sheffield United away from home.
In recent history Salisbury have been successful in the Vanarama leagues, gaining promotion from the Vanarama south to the national where they were considered to be a promotion contender. Poor ownership however would see all chances of league football squandered for the club as they were placed into administration and liquidated.
Salisbury City F.C. no longer exist, but they reformed as Salisbury F.C. and are now back in the Southern League Premier South. They're also favourites to go up to the Isthmian Premier League.
This is where I intend to take them in my first season.
I'm aiming with this story to take Salisbury to the very top of English Football, whether I get past even the first hurdle remains to be seen. Don't expect much, I am by no means an FM wizard, certainly not in lower leagues.
This will go either very well, or very badly but I promise one thing. I will be staying till the bitter sweet? end. Whether this ends in my sacking, or Champions League glory I really can't say for sure.
Hope you guys enjoy and stick a long for the ride, fingers crossed this goes well!
