We start the season as well as have a look at how pre-season went on.
Did Big Dunc bring any new faces to Gretna..?

Part 2!

We are coming up to the halfway point in the season. Something BIG may have happened at Gretna!
We may also have a chance of getting silverware this season..

We are coming to the end of the first season with Gretna and the chance of a domestic treble is on! Can we do it?

**UPDATE



We begin our second season at Gretna. See how we got on over the summer and pre-season. Do we bring in any new faces or see any familiar faces returning?

Good pickups there--Scobbie and Robertson should do well in the center of defense, Thomson seems like an excellent wingback, and Bell has high vision and passing. All should be very good in League 2 and Bell could develop as you go up the leagues into a good playmaker. It will be interesting to see how you fare this season.

Cheers pal. Yeah I feel we have built a good team and can have a good season. I'm hoping we have the right mix of experience and youth who we can develop and take up the leagues (hopefully) with us!
** UPDATE

We kick off the first half the season. We make a handful of transfers and eventually begin to find our feet in a new league?

Bummer about the League form and the Wafer Cup exit. I am also surprised about Birigimina being so poor--when I had him on my Forfar Athletic save he was my top player in the lower leagues. I thought he would do better. Kudos on the Hibs offer--that's impressive after such a short period of time!

Still doing well in the league and I look forward to how the back half of the season progresses (and who you get to replace Robertson).

Bigirimana is decent player for us and has a decent strike on him but at the same time he seems to be suspended for a few games this season!
Hopefully going to try and keep Robertson on if I can. Will have to see what league we are in next season before we can fully commit to the players we are able to attract and replace.
** End of Season 2 update!

We end our second season with Gretna with a chance of a top half finish and we still have a chance of winning the league and getting back to back promotions! Can we do it?

Congratulations on your success with Gretna! I have a soft spot for the club since Kenny Deuchar was an FM Legend a few games back and am enjoying reading your exploits. Good luck with the new U-18s set up and I look forward to your next update.
