I decided to take on a new challenge and Take a club from England's lowest division and Build them into a force to be reckoned with! After looking at the teams I decided that Vauxhall Motors was the Team I shall dedicate my Managerial career to. I picked them as the Media had them down for relegation and the budget was very small. I thought this would add to the challenge! Let's see how we get on.
Facts about Vauxhall Motors
- Never won a trophy
- Best finish was 2nd in Englands 7th tier
- Semi professional club
- Stadium name....Rivacre Park
Pre-season and Transfers
After assessing the squad and with help from the reports of my assistant it was clear that New signings had to be made.I wanted to bring in a new Goalkeeper, Two extra Defenders and Two Strikers. The midfield was decent so I wanted to focus more on other areas first. I was given No transfer budget and only 2.4k wage. The club was already spending 1.9k on its current players.
Ben Townsend - (RB) - Free
James Gilpin - (GK) - Free
Aaron Carter - (CB) - Free
Donal O'Sullivan - (ST) - Free
Aaron Farrell - (ST) - Free
Luke Morgan - (MR) - Free
I wanted to play a 4-4-2 system with a Target man and a pacey Striker. Donal O'Sullivan is 203cm tall so was the ideal choice for the target man.Aaron Carter is a pacey striker so I snapped him up for free. Overall I was very satisfied with my activity in the Transfer Market.
Vauxhall Motors 2-0 Kendal Town
Vauxhall Motors 4-0 North Ferriby
Vauxhall Motors 0-2 Tranmere Rovers
Vauxhall Motors 1-1 Hayes and Yeading
Vauxhall Motors 1-2 Ashton Utd
Vauxhall Motors 1-1 Bromley
A decent Pre-season with some mixed results. With the league soon approaching I am aiming for a play-off stop. I think that we have improved the squad during pre-season and if we can string a run together, We may just get lucky. If the squad needs a few tweaks throughout the season I will look at other Free Transfers.
I will do month by month updates and the first one should be done for later today. I hope you enjoy this and hang on, We are going on a ride!
