Season Four: September Update
Hey guys, apologies for not updating yesterday. I was creating the FM Scout FC database and graphics. However, I return with another update
We went in to this month without a win in the Football League to our name. We were looking to change our fortunes and form a gap between us and the two relegation spots. Could we do it?
We started off with an expected defeat to Preston in the JPT. This leaves us in just one cup competition, the FA Cup. I won't expect too much from that competition, however. We then won three games on the bounce! Michael Wilde quick-started our season with a memorable brace against Accrington. He then scored, alongside Anoruo (2) and Ray Putterill in a thrilling 4-3 comeback win against Luton. Obi then scored another brace, including a last minute winner, against a shocked York side, where 17 yr old Harry Byrne even managed to get his name on the score sheet! A goalless draw against Oxford was then followed by a 3-0 defeat of Burton, where two 17 yr olds, Lloyd Carlisle and Harry Byrne, scored all three goals. We then suffered a defeat in an exciting 4-3 loss to Bury before drawing 1-1 away to Dag & Red.
I am very pleased with this set of results. It is more than I had hoped for and it could not have happened without the two youngsters, Lloyd Carlisle and Harry Byrne. They proved that hunger and desire beats ability.
We have climbed up to a very respectable 10th place, and we are just three points off of a play-off place. It is still very early days, and our end of season form in the past does not reflect kindly on us, but maybe we might just have a slim chance of promotion. For now, we will be content with staying away from the relegation spots, however.
We play our fellow promoted club, Plymouth, at home to kick off the month. We have some very nice looking fixtures this month. Wycombe will certainly be the biggest challenge for us next month. Hopefully we can show our values in what will be a very exciting month.
