Pre Season + August update

The preparations are done, the team is ready, and it's time to play some friendlies before getting into the action. I honestly don't care about the friendlies so I just told my assistant to manage them.

Boreham Wood 1 - 3 West Ham
Omer Riza

Boreham Wood 0 - 4 Reading

Welling 0 - 2 Boreham Wood
Robbie Parry

Boreham Wood 0 - 2 Watford

I'm not pleased with Watford's result at all. I believe I could have done better there. But again, who cares about friendlies results?
Next we had Shrewsbury in the first round of the Capital Cup.

Boreham Wood 0 - 2 Shrewsbury

Disappointing lose, but we didn't have any future in this Cup anyway.

The league starts and we want to see how we can handle the npower League 2 with our new squad.

Accrington 4 - 6 Boreham Wood
David Cubillas x3
Alessandro Cesarini x2
Jerel Ifil

Boreham Wood 1 - 1 Rotherham
David Cubillas

Exeber 1 - 3 Boreham Wood
David Cubillas
Chez Isaac
Alban Sabah

Boreham Wood 2 - 1 Bury
Tom Christian Merkens
Alban Sabah

We performed very well and David Cubillas already looks like he's going to be our next star!

We started the season very well and we intend to keep going strong through September. We had only league games this month and we want to make them count and get as many points as we can.

Boreham Wood 3 - 2 Plymouth

Portsmouth 0 - 4 Boreham Wood
Cubillas x3

Boreham Wood 2 - 3 Gillingham

Boreham Wood 1 - 1 Yeovil

Fleetwood 2 - 2 Boreham Wood
Jose Pierre Vunuguidica
Jayden Stockley

Oxford 1 - 3 Boreham Wood
Cesarini x2

Boreham Wood 2 - 0 Port Vale

I am very pleased. Although we did lost, it has been coming. But results like the 4-0 over Portsmouth means that we are no pushovers. League table:

2013-2014 Season
Hunger Breeds Success

Boreham Wood, the team which overcame extraordinary cirumcstances when former manager Ian Allinson passed away due to a fatal cardiac arrest. It was the unproven English manager, Joshua Morris who came to the rescue. Having had no previous managerial experience, Joshua Morris was thrown head-first in to what it is like to be the manager of a club with an evident lack of finances. His first season ended with Boreham Wood winning the Blue Square Bet South by an astonishing twenty-seven points. Winning the Manager of the Season Award for that division, Joshua Morris was dubbed as the next "Brendan Rodgers" due to his very controlling tactical system. How did he perform this season? Continue reading to find out!

How did he prepare for the upcoming season? With a squad which still has much improving to do, Joshua Morris had a lot of work to do in the transfer market. After much searching and scouting, Mr. Morris emerged with no less than eleven new signings. The most promising of these signings was sixteen year-old attacking midfielder, Martin Allcock. With the new signings in place and with the pre-season out of the way, unfortunately not a successful one, Joshua Morris was all set to compete in the Blue Square Premier.

How did the newly promoted side start their campaign? In Boreham's first game in the Blue Square Premier, they were held to a 1-1 draw away to a relentless Hyde team. Their home debut in this competition saw a thrilling 3-3 draw as Kidderminster sneaked a point and made Mr. Morris continue the wait for his first win of the season. His wait did not last long, however, as Boreham Wood produced a magnificant performance to brush Stockport aside in their own homeground by three goals to one.

With the months of August and September gone by, Boreham Wood had player thirteen league wins where they recorded 8 wins, 4 draws and just 1 loss. This is a very impressive record for the newly promoted side. Higher level managers were beginning to notice Mr. Morris' accomplishments. Neil Lennon of Celtic said this about the Wood's manager: "Joshua is a tactical mastermind. Every change he makes has the same effect Messi does to Barca's attacks." Such high praise for a still relatively unknown gaffer!

Boreham Wood's run up to the festive season was nothing short of fantastic. Morris' side really hit form in the league and were very impressive to reach the second rounds of the FA Cup and the FA Trophy. This was a very good period for Joshua Morris; two points in the lead at the top of the Blue Square Bet Premier and progressing through both cup competitions. It seemed like Boreham Wood had found an absolute gem in manager Joshua Morris and Mr. Morris wasn't going anywhere anytime soon!

December brought another sucessful set of games for Boreham Wood. They won three out of four league games, drawing the other and brushed aside Nuneaton in the FA trophy to move on to the next round. It was the teenager, Martin Allcock, who was pulling all the strings in midfield. His beautiful long balls in to the box made volcanoes erupt. His delicate touch on the ball combined with his defence-penetrating runs was something to admire. However, Boreham Wood were knocked out of the FA Cup by a much stronger Southend side. After drawing originally, the tie was brought back to Boreham's home. The game ended in a thrilling 3-3 draw and Southend won on penalties. Not an ideal result for Mr. Morris but he can be very happy with reaching the second round of the FA Cup and 2014 looks like a very promising year for a side looking to play in the Football League!

Boreham's year started off with a very convincing 3-1 win at home to Lincoln and things only got better for the Wood. Losing just one league game in eight, Boreham Wood pushed eight points clear of second place Forest Green. However, it was the FA Trophy that was keeping everybody on their feet. The Wood brushed aside Gateshead and Eastleigh to reach the semi-final where they were drawn against league rivals Forest Green in a potentially tricky encounter. It proved to be tricky as Forest Green won the first leg at their place by a 2-1 scoreline. The Boreham team were distraught but an inspirational talk from the "Chosen One" Joshua Morris lifted them to win the second leg 3-0 in front of their own ground. A cup final was secured for the rising club.

How did the season end? With tiredness creeping in to the side, Boreham's league form became very inconsistent. They did win the league though, thanks to their earlier form. This meant consecutive titles for the team soon to be playing in the League One. The season was not over for Boreham just yet though. There was still the FA Trophy Final versus Wrexham at Wembley.

This was Morris' first game in Wembley and hopefully not the last! It was a tough game with both sides getting their fair share of the ball. It was thrilling game and the atmosphere at Wembley emphasised this. It was the mighty Boreham Wood who were crowned champions on the day after a spectacular 3-2 win over a dogged Wrexham side. This was Joshua Morris' first cup win and he is sure to aim for more!

This season ended with Joshua Morris winning the Manager of the Year award for the division yet again! This along with the league and cup double was more than enough to convince the board to offer him a new contract. On the 2nd May 2014, English manager Joshua Morris signed a contract extension with Boreham Wood which would see him stay at the club until the end of the 2016 season. Joshua Morris has taken another giant's step towards becoming the greatest football manager of all time. Can he gain another consecutive league win? We will find out this time next year!

Enjoying the story Or :), I want to see boringwood in that EPL in the next 3-4 seasons ;P
Nice one mate, first story of your's that I've ever read... Looking forward to the next update!! :)
loving the story or, can't wait to see you in the epl in a few seasons :P
Guys, I have a very big dilemma here..
On one hand, I enjoy Boreham. I am seriously "creating" a new team and making them a rising empire. Problem is, I feel that story-wise, they were the wrong choice. I thought about starting a new story with Barca or Dortmund. I want to play with big names. That's what makes a story great. there is a huge diffrence if im saying:
"Allcock scored the CL final goal!!!!" to "Gotze scored the CL final goal!!!!"
I want a big team cause I want to go back to my old story style. More story based and less results based.
I know both Barca and Dortmund are strong, but i'm not here for the challenge. I know I can put Wood in the EPL. Have no single doubt about it.
Please comment here your opinions on what should I do next. Thanks.
Who said you cannot start a story now? :P That's what I've been trying to do with the fiction in the season reports!
