Season Two: Episode 10 (The Finale)

A hit and miss final month with some nearly very costly draws in there. The draw against local rivals Morecambe was definitely a sickener as it could have cost us the league title. Luckily though, that point guaranteed us promotion and all we had to do on the final day thanks to our superior goal difference was not get hit for double figures by automatic promotion chasing Newport.

We played awfully on that final day, thank f*** it wasn’t a title decider or we would have been kicking ourselves. We go on a 12 game run without a loss to not turn up on the final day.

Thankfully though, we held on and that’s two promotions in two seasons!

WE ARE GOING UP!

Season Two: Episode 9 (March)

It’s every manager’s favourite time of the season.. Youth Intake Day! This was meant to be our golden generation, a few might make it but the vast amount of them I personally think won’t make our first team. The best player of the bunch by far is Dominic Towns, the young midfielder will likely play with our first team in cup games etc..

Just on the run in to the promotion play offs and Callum McManaman goes and gets injured and as our top assister since he joined hopefully we don’t miss him too much.

Finally our results have picked up! our second month unbeaten and we seem to be converting more and more chances. Quigley has found some form and our loanee striker/winger from Fulham Rasmus Weidesheim-Paul has finally found his feet and rescued us late on in the Carlisle and Tranmere games.

Results have gone our way! We are top of the League! Despite not winning all our games, somehow we are two points clear going into the final month of the season. We have the easiest run in, apart from a tight games against Newport on the final day of the season which could be decisive.

Season Two: Episode 6 (December)

November was such a good month, but December the wheels well untruly have fallen off. We played multiple teams we should have comfortably beaten but despite dominating games we couldn’t kill off these teams. However, we went to take on at the time 1st and 3rd in the league in Newport and Plymouth and comfortably despatched of both of them.

The results against the clubs around us saw us go top of the league on goal difference, despite us having a very shaky month.

Another month, another player of ours leaving for Accrington.. This time Luke Charman a player we brought in as a back up striker to Scott Quigley, decided he didn’t want a new deal as we couldn’t guarantee him the game time he wanted. It’s looking more and more like January is going to be all about rebuilding our strike force.

Finally we got a preview of this seasons youth intake! And with a lot of relief it appears to be a ‘Golden Generation’ just how good it is remains to be seen but the preview looks very good.

Season Two: Episode 5 (November)

Not much League action this month! but alas we keep moving forward. We managed to get through to the third round of the FA Cup, a competition that we were expected to only reach the first round.

As well as we did in the cup competitions during November, that slip up in the league against Tranmere cost us top spot in the division. It’s only one point and we are still in the promotion hunt, add to that we soon bounced back against Oldham.

As we approach the January transfer window, some movements in and out of the squad are bound to take place. The first of which happened this month when a player we’ve had since Season One Dior Angus, refused a new contract over playing time and we accepted a £32.5k offer.

Kits of Non-League: Mossley AFC

This shirt is a bit of a one off, but we like it a lot so we figured why not!

The shirt in question belongs to Mossley AFC of the Northern Premier League Division One North West and is to celebrate 40 years since the club travelled all the way to the hallowed turf of Wembley to feature in the FA Trophy final against Dagenham.

The kit looks amazing and really harks back to the kits of the 80’s, with its simplicity, with some very minute detailing. Speaking of detailing, the names of the squad seen wrapping around the right sleeve are a very nice touch.

The tribute shirt is created by the guys over at Hope And Glory Sportwear, where every shirt is manufactured using a piece of fabric made from the equivalent of approximately 16 plastic bottles. Their EcoKit material behaves in the same way the usual polyester would meaning no difference in performance from other standard kits.

Today is actually the last day you can Pre-order the shirt, therefore if you want to join us and many others in ordering this piece of history then follow the link below.
