Monthly Report - March
The month of March was a relatively good one with 3 wins, 2 in the league against Motherwell and St. Johnstone, 1 in the cup against Falkirk after our only draw of the month against them. Our only loss of the month came against St. Mirren, which if you read the report was an unlucky loss. There were also the friendly matches which were taken control of by my assistant manager. The results were as follows:
The results keep us in the top-6 of the group with a strong chance of qualifying for the euro cup or even the champions league. The 2nd to 5th places are still so very close with only 6 points between them and 3 points between 5th and 6th.
The club is currently going through a takeover bid and currently has a transfer embargo in place which means I am unable to attempt to sign the youth players that I found in some of the lower leagues in Scotland but hopefully it shall not take long for the takeover to be complete.
A good thing about the takeover is that it could possibly help out ALOT with the finances as the possible future chairman has said he'd wipe all the debt from the club which would help massively. The club did go further into debt this month though, as we lost a further £84,500. Once again it was the match day expenses that cost us the most at £151,000 while our gate reciepts brought in £358,000 which is a healthy return....if only we could get that every month.
James Fowler(Attacking), Jude Winchester(Tactics) and Anssi Jaakola(Handling) all improved this month in training for their respective areas, while Manuel Pascali(Tactics), Garry Hay(Strength) and Micheal Stewart(Aerobic) all failed to improve and impress.
