I am taking Runcorn Town, a team in the 10th tier of English football, and I hope to get them all the way to the top. I am using a database that I downloaded that has an extension on the English league for all ten tiers. I will update for transfers, trophies, end of season occurrences, and anything else important that happens.

These are my starting options for the game. As you can see, I am using all ten tiers for England, and all of the first divisions for many of the major European leagues, with a large database.



The Story Begins

Down in the depths of English Football, a team in need of change and progress appointed a new manager. Runcorn Town opted to go for a former sunday league football, Cameron George, who was delighted with the role and hoped to take the club to bigger and better things.

After George meet all of his staff and looked through his squad, he decided it was time for change. As Runcorn Town were an amateur team, he knew he would not be paying anything for his players in terms of fee or wage. This meant that a sprawl through young free agents was necessary. He, along with his newly appointed scout made sure that only the best were going to be signed.

An intra-squad friendly was arranged for George to get a look at all of his players. This match was a resounding win for the first XI, although the result didn't really matter.

George and his assistant arranged a number of friendlies to get the squad prepared for their season in the Vodkat D1 league. These would be against 'Rust' and 'Vauxhall Motors'.
The Story Continues

George and his staff, in a quest to find good, young amateurs, were encountering some real gems. Having to fight with many other teams in the division for signings, eventually, a number of players were signed with no cost, and with amateur contracts.

A press conference was called by George to unveil two of his new signings; Earl Pepper and Neal Evans. George stated that he had a great friendship with Neal and was delighted for him to sign for Runcorn Town. A couple of days later, George announced the signings of three more players; Jermaine Boulding, Lee Deakin, and Pietro Palladino. George stated in a press conference that he had no worries with Palladino's fitness, even though he was quite prone to injury, and was maybe a risky signing.

A week later, George recieved an invation to England Trial Day, where he could view players who would maybe be possible signings. However, he declined to go, but made sure that the best players there were scouted to make sure that he wasn't missing out.

Signing after signing were made in the coming days, with George making sure that every area of the squad was improved before his first friendly against Rust. Also in this time, he received the reports from his scout relating to the England Trial Day, and was impressed with what he heard, and hoped to sign 5 or 6 players from this event.

George was looking forward to his approaching friendly against semi-professional German team Rust, and hoped that he could get a good result from it.

The friendly between Runcorn Town and Rust ended 2-2, which George felt was a very respectable result, although it wasn't all good news as Runcorn Town picked up an injury, with Richard Edwards being put out of action for 9 to 12 days. However, George was confident that he would be fully fit for the start of the league season. This injury could be a blow, as it was Edwards who got Runcorn's first goal in the friendly, before Scott James scored the equaliser in the 93rd minute.



After the game, George enjoyed a nice weekend off, before arriving in the boardroom Monday morning for a meeting with the board. During this meeting, George stated that he believe Runcorn should apply to become a full-time club, and to his surprise, the board agreed, and they said they would try at the beginning of the next season.

He also asked the board about a possible feeder club in order to send players out on loan, and the board duly agreed.
How can you install the leagues up to the 10th tier? I have used the link which allows you to play untill the 8th league. Now I'm managing Rainworth in the 8th tier but would gladly know how is it possible to go down till the 10th league in the near future. How can I do it?

You can join us on the forum on the link for lower league managers. There are other guys interested in playing the lowest possible divisions.

Cheers!

When on that, there are two links at the bottom, one for 8th tier and one for the 10th tier. I think it is the one I used so it should work.
The Story Continues
A few more weeks passed in the summer, with George busy improving his squad. The friendly against Blue Square Bet North team Vauxhall Motors approached, and George fielded a strong side in order to help get a win in this one.

It was a satisfying result for George, as Runcorn won 2-1, thanks to a brace from Matthew Biddle, either side of half time.



After this convincing win, George and his assistant decided to set up another two friendly games, away at Desborough and away at Haringey. The friendly at Desborough ended in a dull 0-0, although Runcorn picked up an injury to key player Robert Cavener. The 22 fans who attended were duly disappointed. The friendly against Haringey was a bad turnout for Runcorn, who lost 3-1, despite a goal from Herbet Seudieu.

More injury worries for George though as Neal Evans picked up an injury late on.

Thanks mate! Does it work for the FM 12 or should I have the FM 11 installed on the computer as well?

Well, I don't have FM2012 as I don't like having to use steam, and I wouldn't really see any difference when playing as a lower league club as to having to use FM12 instead of 11, as transfers aren't really important and you still have a cracking game.
o.k. than I reinstall FM 11. After I have bought and installed FM 12 I deleted the FM 11. But for such a challenge is worth coming back to old days..hehe..Thanks!
