Good morning everyone, sorry for the delay. had a little too much to drink last night.

Ok, we had some things happen. First, we managed to finish 3rd in the league after a very slow start. we only make round 7 in nat trophy, but we made up for it by making the semi finals in the champions cup (is that a first for an English team?), and, in Hangeland's last offical game, we won the Div 1 league cup. Took a minute to find the trophy room, but we emptied the clubhouse to celebrate.
This season is more of the same, aiming for top 4 in league, and go as far as possible in the cups. Champions cup should be fun. playing a team run by an AI (which is either genius or useless), Soccer stars, who we knocked out in the quarter finals, and Legendary Snatchers, who knocked us out in the semi's, so no idea if we will make it 3 for 3.

Player wise, we lost 2 players to retirement. Molyneux was our best AM for a few seasons, and has been a great mentor for our 2 AM's. Hangeland was our star since the team was founded, the best player we have had up to now, and we did not have a young replacement ready. however, we discovered Given (https://www.f4football.com/players/show/92168) at the end of the season for sale, negotiated the price a bit, crushed our transfer record, and has not let us down yet. we are currently selling a few surplus to requirements players, and we will see where we lie. We are also losing this season Quinn, our RB, through he was never our best player, having been replaced with Saunders (https://www.f4football.com/players/show/66484), and Niyaz, who was the final piece of the puzzle for one of the strongest defences in F4Football.

Goals include finding a new CB, and our only non first team is not likely to get there, never mind this season.
we also need a second DM of real potential, and that is actually it.

Stadium wise we are aiming for a 40k stadium, and then YA6.
