Good stuff!

Maybe it's best to look at loans for young players as the budget is so low. The squad you have has been doing great to go from promotion to 3rd in the new division!
Have been trying to attract loan deals but still getting rejected by a lot of players, my problem is i don't want to buy or loan players in that play second fiddle to my current squad, im only after improvements so may be stuck with this team for a while. I shall see what January brings me, as im ready to continue again now after a little break.

All very good players m8 but i only have a 1k budget :) hoping if i can get just 1 more promotion then i'll finally have some money to build for the next 2 promotions
Dude not bad, though i have not much interest in Scotland Football unfortunately. For me, i usually loan youngsters who have good ratings from bigger clubs. Also, there are many bargains in the lower leagues. Congrats anyway! Hope to see more from you!

Thanks fella, Usually i start in BSS with Boreham Wood but decided wanted a different challenge, and being my m8 from Scotland he always going on Annan so here i am :)

I will continue my search for loanees but no one wants to join a low ranked team in Scotland, i think personally it's just no one wants to play in Scotland full stop :)

So as we head into our final stages, im currently sitting 2nd, 2 points behind the leader, with only 5 games to go, can we pull together for this last stretch, come on lads we can do it.

Annan 0-0 Forfar (Dundee won) not the result i was needing i am now 4 points behind with 4 games to go for automatic promotion.

Annan 0-2 Dundee

Well that's my title push out the window with only 3 games remaining and Dundee with a 7 point lead, guess im left to fight it out in play-offs if i don't drop any more points, even that thou is not a certainty.

Airdrie United 1-3 Annan

Great result for us, although Dundee won so we still remain 7 points behind with 2 games remaining, but it has secured a play-off spot good job lads.

With only 2 games to go and play-off secured I'm going to be given as many players a rest as i can, hope they appreciate it.

Play-Offs

So how the play-offs work in Scotland is 2nd place to 4th place go into draw with the 2nd bottom placed team from first division, now this is the team we all want to avoid.

Ok i have been drawn again Stenhousemiur over 2 legs, 1st leg is away from home so hoping to keep score down with maybe a nice away goal.

In the other play-off we have East Fife placed against Falkirk.

Stenhousemuir 2-0 Annan

Not the result i was looking for, got our work cut out now if we are to progress.

Annan 3-1 Stenhousemuir

Away goals don't count in these play-offs so went in my favour, so game ended a draw which took us into extra time where we battled to just find that 1 goal, as it was it finished 3-1 which led to penalties.

Annan Miss Stenhousemuir Scored
Annan Scored Stenhousemuir Missed
Annan Missed Stenhousemuir Scored
Annan Missed Stenhousemuir Scored

Final Score 3-4 to Stenhousemuir.

So there you have it we failed in first stage off play-offs so will be stuck in this division for another season.

Good effort from the team we were never expected to finish so high so a big well done to you all.

I suppose 1 good thing has come out of this season, i have managed to pull the club out of 62k debt into 20k profit, if i can achieve the same again next season then just maybe the club will give me some funds.

We are currently all enjoying a holiday when out the blue a premiership club gives me a shout for an opening position at Reading! Not a bad club and in premiership but i will turn them down as i have yet to complete my mission with Annan.

Achieving second in your first shot and narrowly missing promotion, good show man!
So the board have given me zero transfer budget this season and only around £500 to play around with for wages. going to be another tough season.
