Load FM! commented on: FM20 - A Wandering Dork

A bottom to top career (hopefully) with my hometown club FC Halifax Town

Discussion
So, in FM15 I started a story where I would take charge of my hometown club, FC Halifax Town, aiming to take them from their current position in the Conference, and going as far as possible (hopefully ending with the ultimate, Champions League success)

This story came to an end due to the birth of my daughter, meaning FM went on to the backburner somewhat. As a result progress in this career will be slow, however it is likely to be long term as I don't anticipate buying FM17 later on this year as I don't really have the time to warrant buying it.

The story will begin in the next post
THE CLUB

The club plays it’s home matches at The Shay Stadium, a facility that is probably too good for the level the club is playing at.

After reforming in 2008 after the original club entered administration, the new club has risen through the leagues prolifically, rising from the Evostik Northern Division One North back to where the old club was before perishing, the Vanarama Conference, thanks to 3 promotions in 4 seasons. Upon returning to the conference, FC Halifax not only consolidated their position in the Conference, but also reaching the playoffs before succumbing 2-1 on aggregate to Cambridge United who were eventually promoted. In their second season back at this level, early promise faded away through the second half of the season, eventually finishing in 9th, whilst disappointing, still very respectable all things considered.

The club has also gained recognition recently thanks to the successes of recent players, Lee Gregory now at Millwall, and, most notably, Jamie Vardy at Leicester City

The club is still part-time, highlighting the difficulties facing me as manager, due to the Conference being made up with many full-time, ex league clubs run on larger budgets. The playing squad also underwent a complete overhaul in the Summer of 2015, with all but a handful of players remaining from the previous season. This was partly down to the squad needing to be freshened up after stagnating in the second half of last season, and also partly down to the club not acting quickly enough, and players moving onto (generally) bigger clubs.
