Got to admit, I'm a little jealous you've been able to spend cash, something I haven't been able to do.
Haha its only small money @Shedender from when the team was set up. But we've not overly spent.

London City FC - August 2018

http://i.imgur.com/u2CpKmL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/qyi8RDL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/djoepMR.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/pSRybFR.png

Here we go then, August 2018, my third stint in the Vanarama South has kicked off and this year just five matches in the opening month. We had some winnable games this month to so I was definitely expecting us to get off to a strong start. Over the last two seasons we've picked up seven points from six games in 2016 and six points from six games in 2017, what would 2018 deliver...

http://i.imgur.com/2MLTm6c.png

Nine points from a possible fifteen, three wins from five to open our third season here and its a superb start if you ask me. A thrilling game against Hayes and Yeading kicked the season off with us coming out on top four three. It was two a piece at half time in a ding dong battle with Hassall and Ede netting for us. We then trailed three two before Bennett leveled and Hassall struck a second to win us the opening match of the season. Wealdstone beat us two nil away from home. We returned home to face Weston-Super-Mare and a strong showing saw us win three nil here. Two superb strikes from Josh Street saw us two up at the break and new boy Cheema also on target second half. We narrowly lost out three two against Sutton United, despite going one nil up through Bennett. Hassall netted a late consolation. We ended the month with a three one away win against Gosport, Gascoigne fired us one up inside four minutes. An own goal and one from substitute Okojie send us three up before Gosport netted a late goal.

http://i.imgur.com/WtdW7z1.png

Its so rare to see us up this high in the table, nine points from our opening five league games sees us sitting all the way up in sixth place and that could be the highest we've been since this career began. Its definitely a strong starting block for us to get going this year and with any luck we can continue to press on picking up wins like this. It could be a good season for us, I'm still targetting a mid table finish.

London City FC - September 2018

http://i.imgur.com/u2CpKmL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/qyi8RDL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/djoepMR.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/pSRybFR.png

Following a good start to the season, well, three wins from five for a club like us as of late has got to be considered as a very good start. We moved into September with the club currently sitting very high in the table, things would change, of course they would, but it'd be good to continue picking up points over the opening couple months of season three.

http://i.imgur.com/C6mlUbN.png

The board have sent me on my penultimate coaching course, almost the best I can be now, certainly isn't too bad, I wasn't expecting to get all the badges still being in the basement tier of English football management but that is the case apparently.

http://i.imgur.com/pLDcNyl.png

September proved to be a very busy month for us facing seven matches, six of them in the league and we'd also begin our FA Cup journey of 2018. In the league we managed to continue our strong start with two more wins a draw and three defeats. We beat newly promoted sides Bromley four one and Canvey Island three one. Dartford, relegated last season, beat us two nil at home before we lost two nil away from home to Hungerford. We'll be seen in the Third Qualifying Round of the FA Trophy as we dumped out non league North Greenford late on. We lost to Maidenhead and drew to Maidstone to end the month.

http://i.imgur.com/Cpc6a4d.png

We've slipped down to fourteenth in the league but currently have sixteen points on the board from our opening eleven games which is very pleasing to date. We also currently are holding on to a positive goal difference. It'd be nice if we could finish this season with that in tact as the last two seasons its been negative. Long way to go yet, but the seasons looking bright for us.

London City FC - October 2018

http://i.imgur.com/u2CpKmL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/qyi8RDL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/djoepMR.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/pSRybFR.png

Another busy month on paper was scheduled for October, should we continue our run through the FA Cup we could face up to eight games depending on if we needed replays to get by the rounds etc. But obviously the league is our main focus and how far we could extend our strong start, the more points we could pick up in the early stages of the season, the less pressure on us at the tail end of it which would make a nice change!

http://i.imgur.com/mSKOjnk.png

Its not very often we go through a month with just the single red dot against our name, but thats whats happened as we've gone through seven games in October, losing just once whilst picking up three wins and three draws. It started with the FA Cup Third Qualifying round where we faced Kingstonian, it was contested over two matches, drawing one all first then beating them four nil. We then drew with Welling at home with a Hassall hatrick for our three goals. A third meeting with Kingstonian this month saw us beat them two one with Guppy netting in the final minute. Next was a trip to non league Tiverton in the FA Cup Fourth Qualifying round and for the second season running we'll feature in the FA Cup First Round as we beat them four one. A one nil defeat against high flying Dorchester before ending the month at home with a two all draw against another high flyer Havant & Waterlooville.

http://i.imgur.com/kZT6E5f.png

Back on the rise in the table as we move from fourteenth up to eleventh after fifteen games played and twenty one points on the board, we're almost halfway towards our points tally for the last two seasons already. If we have a good month in November we could really push ourselves to challenge for a top ten spot this season, however my main aim is midtable, anywhere around tenth to fifteenth ideally.

London City FC - November 2018

http://i.imgur.com/u2CpKmL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/qyi8RDL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/djoepMR.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/pSRybFR.png

Twenty one points from our first fifteen league games, things are looking really rosey at the moment here at London City FC. Not promotion rosey, but definitely mid table rosey thats for sure. November as always is a much quieter month as we faced just four matches, but one is the big FA Cup game, the First Round for the second season in a row. Although no big tie this round for us.

http://i.imgur.com/hQGlWsl.png

Well the frequent red dots have returned to our schedule as we lost twice, drew once and won once in our four games throughout November. We started with a brilliant come back win away at Bath, one nil down at half time and quickly two down. Before a brace from Josh Street within a minute of each other, Hassall and Wilson netted to see us come back to win four two. Vanarama National side Chester knocked us out the FA Cup First Round at home, narrowly losing out two one. We played out a goalless drew with Eastbourne Boro before narrowly losing out two against Basingstoke.

http://i.imgur.com/MBFLrsy.png

Twenty five points from eighteen games and now we're over halfway towards the points tally we accumulated both previous seasons of forty nine. The last couple of seasons we've taken about twenty to twenty three games to hit this points tally so this year we're on target for a best season finish. We've just got to continue to be strong on the pitch and get those points secured.

Next Update: London City FC - December 2018

You had a promising start to the league season pal but a shame about last month though.
We sure have @Shedender and so a mid table season is looking much more likely this year.
____________________________________________________________________
London City FC - December 2018

http://i.imgur.com/u2CpKmL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/qyi8RDL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/djoepMR.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/pSRybFR.png

And so the final month of 2018 was upon us and it was time to try and end the calendar year on a high. We had six more games to go this year to see if we could continue the season on a high. We were out the FA Cup and now had the FA Trophy to contend with this month as well as the league fixtures. Could we continue to grow this season.

http://i.imgur.com/uBEm0k7.png

The FA Trophy has began and finished for us. Again we faced Kingstonian this season, beating them again, this time four three after extra time. Hassall netted a superb hatrick with the winner six minutes into Extra Time. We then hit a sour patch of form. A trip to Tonbridge saw us lose two one before we crashed out the FA Trophy, losing two nil against Wealdstone in the First Round. Our only league win came against Hampton and Richmond, dominating the game and eventually getting the winner in injury time. We then threw away the points against Hayes and Yeading, letting slip a three one lead. We ended the month and calendar year against high flying Chelmsford where we lost three nil.

http://i.imgur.com/N69sCet.png

And so we end 2018 up in fourteenth place as we've already picked up twenty nine points this season after twenty two league games. We require just twenty one more points this seson to beat our season best which we've scored both previous seasons. However we're still only nine points above the drop zone so a bad run of form could still see us get caught in the relegation battle again.

London City FC - January 2019

http://i.imgur.com/u2CpKmL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/qyi8RDL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/djoepMR.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/pSRybFR.png

We go into 2019 with our form the best its been over the last two and a half seasons and thats hopefully shining a bright light on the future of this club as we begin to take small pigeon steps towards the top of the ladder, obviously we're nowhere near that just yet. But we went into the New Year up in fourteenth place and already just twenty points off our total points accumulated the last two seasons, it was looking like progress would be made this year around.

http://i.imgur.com/JQ24TPH.png

And we've managed to continue our strong form as we begin 2019 with three wins from five games, losing just once. We began welcoming Wealdstone on New Years day and this saw us win four one thanks to Hassall, Ward, Street and Sheppard. We then drew three a piece with Sutton United with Bennett netting in the last six minutes which is a great point. We lost out to Weston Super Mare annoyingly by one goal. We ended the month with back to back wins and clean sheets, beating Gosport three nil and Bromley one nil.

http://i.imgur.com/sX0ChAF.png

We end the opening month of 2019 up in eleventh place with us now hitting thirty nine points. We're only seven points off Basingstoke in fifth place and the final playoff spot but I'm not expecting us to get anywhere near that this season as we're not that reliable against the bigger teams, but we've definitely moved forward. We've also moved seventeen points away from the drop zone now.

London City FC - February 2019

http://i.imgur.com/u2CpKmL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/qyi8RDL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/djoepMR.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/pSRybFR.png

Three months of competitive action left of my third season in charge of London City FC and in the Vanarama South and I was pretty sure it wouldn't be my last season with either. January had started the new calendar year very well for us and now I was hoping we could keep that form going as we went into February. We were nearing our points tally for the last two seasons, were we going to beat it by the end of February...

http://i.imgur.com/aMTcCEB.png

Well the month looked so promising after the first two games, we welcomed Hungerford and beat them three one, Hassall, Cheema and Street on target for us. We then beat Canvey Island one nil thanks to Street. League leaders Dartford expectedly beat us three on and then a shock home defeat saw us lose out heavily to Maidenhead, coming off the pitch as six one losers.

http://i.imgur.com/8nmVnpN.png

Twelfth place after thirty one games. We've got eleven matches left this season and are now just four points away from our total points tally for the last two seasons so it seems like this season we really are going to make a big leap forward in that department. Our goal difference is hanging in the positive, just, be good if we can hold on to that. Twenty one points above the drop zone, we're all but safe this season.

Next Update: London City FC - March 2019

Looks like you've made good progress this season, hopefully next year you push for the playoffs.
It does seem like it @Sean_ we've got to get across the line this season first though.

London City FC - March 2019

http://i.imgur.com/u2CpKmL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/qyi8RDL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/djoepMR.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/pSRybFR.png

Two full months of football to go and our form was beginning to take a turn for the worst. Having played so well all season the cracks were just beginning to show and that was the case with our most recent defeat against Maidenhead. With five matches in March it was important we picked up a couple of wins from them. We also had another youth intake.

http://i.imgur.com/zVRj100.png

Same as always, no one really 'stands out' and at this level why would they!? They'll all be offered a year contract as usual.

http://i.imgur.com/2gjkYSh.png

And our form continues to be very hit and miss. A narrowly win over lowly placed Kingstonian saw us win three two, another two for Hassall as well as Copp netting a penalty. We then lost three on the bounce, conceding eleven goals and scoring none as Maidstone, Welling and Dorchester all took full points against us. The month ended with a one nil win over Easbourne Boro. Guppy netting after thirty one minutes.

http://i.imgur.com/bN1j9lR.png

We've beat our points tally of the last two seasons, having tallied forty nine points those two seasons, we've hit fifty one so far this year and still have eight matches to play. It'd be great if we could hit around sixty points this year but as long as we beat our league position last year its progress.

Next Update: London City FC - April 2019

London City FC - April 2019

http://i.imgur.com/u2CpKmL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/qyi8RDL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/djoepMR.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/pSRybFR.png

And so the final month of season three is here, we played a single game in May so its been included in the April updated as its pointless doing an update for one game at this moment in time anyway. We had six games to contend with throughout April and it was important we regained composure as we've been rocky lately and could still finish lower than last seasons sixteenth place.

http://i.imgur.com/kUv4sOC.png

Well its fair to say our form really did desert us the last two or three months but nonetheless we got across the line, with our final month seeing three defeats, one draw and two victories. We lost to playoff side Havant and Waterlooville two nil before beating Bath two one. Basingstoke then beat us one nil before we played out a nine goal thriller against Hampton and Richmond, winning five four with Hassall netting a superb four goals for us. We ended the year with a defeat at home against Tonbridge and finally a draw at home against Chelmsford.

http://i.imgur.com/PcYFTNO.png

And so the season comes to an end with us in fourteenth place, another step forward beating our previous best finish, last seasons sixteenth. We also went on to pick up fifty eight points which is nine points better than we have done the last two seasons. Our defence was a little leakier this year but I'm not overly bothered. A few good signings this summer and we could be challenge for a top half finish.

http://i.imgur.com/UwdaG3Z.png

A good bit of news to finish on, our very own twenty year old striker, George Hassall has been named the Vanarama National League South top goalscorer with twenty six goals from thirty nine league appearances this season, hes been class up front.

Quite a decent season @Dan and you reached your expectation preseason which was between 10th and 15th position. KIU chum.
Its progress @Shedender small steps forward!
London City FC - Pre Season Round Up 2019


http://i.imgur.com/u2CpKmL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/ooLNqSj.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/mFvw8jP.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/RUMreqg.png


So another summer passes by and our third set of new kits are shown off to the public. I forgot to change them last year but maybe the kit consistency helped us to an all new high league finish. This year they're remaining the same colors except the third switching from white to black. The summer as always at London City FC has been a busy one but one we've coped alright with.

http://i.imgur.com/6sL2Ntk.png

All the relevant news that came out of pre season. Unfortunately the board have pressed on with their hopes of moving stadium and have decided to build on over the next twenty five months. Meaning we have two more seasons at Wembley. It'll be called London City Stadium. I also signed another one year extension to my contract, now being paid a hefty £800 per week. And the pre season expectations are the same they have been for the previous three seasons.

http://i.imgur.com/6dyKOvL.png

More incommings than outgoings in a summer transfer window, thats a first for this club, but hopefully its a sign of things to come and the club progressing forward.

http://i.imgur.com/2ofGby1.png

Most of the club are on non contracts now hence the 'CTR' next to their names. On paper our squad looks weak this year but in reality I personally think its one of the strongest squads we've had all of this career. I'm hoping for another solid season from our striker George Hassall and hopefully we've sorted the leaky defence a little bit this year.

http://i.imgur.com/liFzmGH.png

Well not the best summer but it was all about getting use to our tactics and the squad playing together again.

This seasons aims, much like last season, mid table. We're aiming to finish 10th - 12th personally. The media are predicting us to finish down in nineteenth and taking steps backwards this year.

Season four is underway here in the basement tier of English football but we're beginning to cope better with it. We've had six games played in August as its a busy start to the season and important we start well to set the pace for the remainder of the season. Could we beat last seasons 'best' ever start of picking up nine points from our opening five games.

http://i.imgur.com/A167VrW.png

An unbeaten start! We've picked up twelve points from out opening six matches and it could of been better! We kicked the season of at home against Eastbourne Boro and two penalties, converted by Bradbrook in the first half was all it took for us to take the points. We then drew against Truro nil nil, we should of won. Beat Weston Super Mare at home two nil, late goals from Hassall and Cheema. A draw against recently relegated Dulwich Hamlet saw Hassall net with ten minutes to go to seal a point. We then blew a two goal lead and three one lead against Dorchester to draw three a piece. Before ending the opening month two one against struggling starters Maidstone. Coming back form one down with Brecbrook and Hassall on target for us.

http://i.imgur.com/9X9K8qe.png

Following our unbeaten start to the league season we find ourselves way up the table in fourth place. Now its unlikely that we're going to be at the top come the end of the season but it's not an impossibility. We'll continue to play the way we're playing this season and hopefully continue our strong start over the next couple of months.

Following an extremely strong start to the league season we went into a slightly quieter September with just five matches to play this month. We'd begin our FA Cup journey this month to with us reaching the First Round in the last two seasons it'd be great if we can do that for a third season in a row. Would we remain unbeaten come the end of month two this season.

http://i.imgur.com/qfDamYG.png

Good news is the club have now paid for my final coaching qualification. I have began a twelve month study of my Continental Pro Licence which'll see me fully qualified in the coaching department. Probably the best coach in the division.

http://i.imgur.com/WP2dAc1.png

Well good news and bad news, we remain unbeaten in league football this year but have slipped to three more draws and one win however have crashed out the FA Cup in the Second Qualifying Round. The month began away at Hampton and Richmond with a one nil win thanks to Browne, his first of three goals this month. A two all draw against Welling at home saw us blow our lead twice. We also blew our lead at home against Sutton United following Hassall early strike. There was no luck in the FA Cup this year as Dulwich Hamlet beat us three nil away from home. We ended the month by snatching a point against Basingstoke with Browne netting in the ninety second minute.

http://i.imgur.com/otdBcpb.png

We remain unbeaten in the league after ten matches and the only other side to do so at this moment in time is Wealdstone up in second place. However a few early draws have slightly cost us a brilliant start with us sat in sixth at the moment just outside the playoff zone. A long way to go yet this season but its really looking like a promising season for London City FC.

Going out the FA Cup in September could prove to be a good thing this year around. Over the last couple seasons we've reached the first round and thats seen us play a few more games with some going to extra time, tiring the squad out a little more. But our form is so good this year that going out early isn't a problem as it was the round the board wanted us to reach. How would our form hold up in October.

http://i.imgur.com/P9HFA4Z.png

Our unbeaten league start has come to an end but we've certainly not slowed up anytime this month with three more wins, one draw and one defeat. As well as seeing Hassall not slow up on being last years top scorer with him netting fourteen goals already this season. We began October, a day before my birthday with a hammering at Bath, we delivered it! We won four nil, Hassall with a hatrick and Ede with a late goal to wrap it up. A trip to Maidenhead saw us drew two all, annoyingly throwing the lead away twice which we earned through Hassall and Rigby. Back to winning ways at home with a two nil second half win against Hungerford. Our first league defeat came as we slipped from three one up to lose four three against Staines, Hassall with his second hatrick of the month. The final match saw us travel to Bromley and win four one. Starting quickly with Browne in the first minute, Hassall and Gordon (x2) before the break saw us four up.

http://i.imgur.com/OWd5yE6.png

We're up in second after fifteen league games having bagged twenty eight points already this season! Its incredible to achieve this for our club. Wealdstone are still top of the table and unbeaten as they're season goes from strength to strength, we'll face them in November in what will hopefully be a top of the table clash. Its certainly tight at the top at the moment, we're just enjoying being there.

Into November and it'd be good if we could continue our strong start to the league season and end on the calendar year on a high. We've got a fair few games to go yet though before the end of the year with November and December still to play through. We went into the month second in the league table with three league games and one FA Trophy match on the agenda.

Three wins and one unfortunate defeat over the month pleased me enough, even more so when Hassall netted a brace followed by a hatrick this month. We kicked off the month beating Canvey Island two one away from home. We trailed one nil before Hassall netted a penalty before the break and a winner seven minutes from time. We then faced top side Wealdstone, who had lost their last game and first one of the season. We beat them four three in a thriller. Bradbrook scored and Hassall netted a hatrick. Both sides ended this game with ten men. Welcoming Tonbridge we lost three one, annoyingly after Bradbook gave us the lead, we had a man sent off and played an hour with ten men, shipping three goals. Finishing the month with a win against Whitehawk in the FA Trophy Third Qualifying Round.

Well well well, we've never been this high in the league table as we sit top of the pile, allbeit on goal difference for now, we are the guys in charge. Eighteen games played, thirty four points earned and a plus fourteen goal difference. Its shaping up to be a sensational, surprising season for us but still a lot of football to be played this season.

Wait, top? What's that all about @Dan? You have had a tremendous season thus far, KIU mate.

The final month of whats been a very pleasing and promising calendar year, we were waving goodbye to 2019 but hopefully not goodbye to the good football we've seen from London City FC, especially as of late, we now had the chance to be top at Christmas and head into the new year at the top of the pile to if we could maintain our good form in a quiet winter month.

Four games, two wins, one draw and one defeat to round up 2019. We began with our second game against Whitehawk in as many matches. Beating them again, Hassall netting four minutes from time with his only one this month. We slipped out the FA Trophy in the First Round as Welling dispose us two nil. Back to league action and a victory against newly promoted Met. Police as we beat them two nil late on. An own goal fifteen minutes from time and two minutes later a Browne strike two minutes later sealed the win. We ended the month and year with a stale one all draw away at Eastbourne Boro.

We were top at Christmas and top at the New Year, that can only bode well for the remainder of the season surely. Obviously our stash of goals dropped dramatically over December but we still remained unbeaten in the league so that says it all. Still half a season to go before we get carried away. I'd rather finish top than go through the dreaded playoffs.

London City FC - January 2020

Into 2020 and if you told me I'd be in the Vanarama National South still in January 2020 I'd probably of believed it, afterall I targeted up to five seasons to clear this division. If you told me I'd be top of the pile I don't think I'd believe it, but thats the case as we head into the New Year. But we can't get complacent just yet there is a lot of football to play yet. With us only in league football now, we've got our full focus on every match.

We began the New Year with a defeat against promotion chasing Chelmsford, they're hot on our hills and this has put them within touching distance of us. A couple stronger results came as we returned home for back to back games. Beating Truro three two and then Weston-Super-Mare two nil. Hassall netting in both games, Bradbrook netting a brace against Truro. We let an early one nil lead slip against Dulwich Hamlet, drawing one all before traveling and losing against Dorchester four two in a very poor showing from us. Ending the month against struggling Maidstone with a three two win after being two nil down. Another Hassall brace as he netted five goals in six games to continue his strong season form.

We have remained top at the end of January, however the team that beat us to kickstart their new year are now second and only behind us on goal difference currently. We're both on fifty one points after twenty seven games. Remember the first two seasons, we finished them with forty nine points, last season we finished with fifty nine points. Already we're up on fifty one points and set for another new record points and league position finish bar a complete catastrophe.

London City FC - February 2020

The calendar year had began well, we had started where we left off in 2019. But things were going to turn a little bit this month and really begin to make us work to be league champions, are we about to blow it. We also have the usual bunch of youth recruits who can probably hardly kick a ball in a straight line and on top of that, some good news.

http://i.imgur.com/Rb0NXkZ.png

Well, they're all rubbish and thats that.

http://i.imgur.com/AYjQgEY.png

Yelp, three defeats on the bounce, including one to struggling bath. We kicked off the month with a superb thumping against Hampton and Richmond, Galliford netting twice on his debut with Bradbrook netting the other two But then turned the sour patch, losing two on at home to Bath, two nil away at Welling and at Sutton United. Thankfully we ended the month with a strong four two performance against Hungerford and hopefully the turning point back to our good form we've displayed all season. Hassall netting a brace there led to this pleasing news.

George Hassall has broke his London City FC record of most league goals in a single season. It was his own record he broke when he netted twenty six league goals last season to be crowned Vanarama South golden boot, hes on his way this year, already notching twenty seven goals.

Chelsmford's good run of form is really moving now, they move top of the pile and six points clear of us in second place as we've set the pace all year, we're now playing catch up with just two months of competitive football to go, have we blown our title hopes. They've also gained to see their goal difference better ours now, with ten matches to go, I'm hoping we go on a firing spree this next month or two.

Three defeats on the bounce? What's that all about? Just hope you can recover.
I know, a slight hiccup there for us @Shedender

London City FC - March 2020

http://i.imgur.com/u2CpKmL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/ooLNqSj.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/mFvw8jP.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/RUMreqg.png

After a slight hiccup in February, we were heading into March in second place and now chasing league leaders Chelmsford. It'd be tough to turn around the gap that we've created due to slipping up but with any luck we could bounce back here. We've only got four matches in March, a quieter month before the big run in during April.

http://i.imgur.com/ElNO6t7.png

We did indeed improve, to hit a four game winning run after winning our final game at the end of February. March began with two home games, first beating Basingstoke two one, Hassall and Taylor, the latter coming a minute before the end to win the game. We beat Maidenhead four one with Browne and Bradbrook netting one each, Hassall netting a brace. We traveled to Staines to win two one, nearly blowing a two nil lead. Before ending the month losing two one to third place Wealdstone, Hassall netting our goal making it five in four for him in March.

http://i.imgur.com/jJJIw0C.png

Thirty six league games played, six games to go this season and we still trail league leaders Chelmsford by a single point at the top of the pile. Wealdstone are third in the league and four points behind us so we're starting to look safe for a top two finish should we keep strong till the end of the season now. It'll be an exciting run in thats for sure.

London City FC - April 2020

http://i.imgur.com/u2CpKmL.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/ooLNqSj.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/mFvw8jP.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/RUMreqg.png

Here it goes then, capping off our best ever season to date. Its taken four years so far to see some real progress but we're on the verge of making that step now. The final month of the league season was here, April 2020 and we've got six league matches to play to end the season. Trailing league leaders Chelmsford by a single point, it could be decided on the final day when the two clubs go head to head. Our forms been up and down to date the last couple months, but here goes nothing...

http://i.imgur.com/jT0V8JO.png

Is that title winning form just two wins from our final six league games along with three defeats and a draw on the final day of the season with our top of the table rivals and current league leaders Chelmsford. We kicked off the month with a one nil win against Bromley, Browne netting for us. But two defeats slipped into our run, losing two nil at home against Canvey Island and three two away at Tonbridge. We bounced back with a two nil win against Met. Police, Hassall and Cheema netting inside thirty five minutes. But ending the season with two home games and winning neither, a two nil defeat against Whitehawk before a two all draw against Chelmsford...

http://i.imgur.com/iSEuN3s.png

CHAMPIONS!!!! on the final day of the season! Oh the scenes at Wembley when this result was confirmed. We welcomed Chelmsford leading them on goal difference, winner takes it all, i set up for a draw. Hassall got us off to the perfect start, netting after half an hour. With thirty minutes remaining, Chelmsford leveled before Hassall fired us in the lead against with seventeen minutes remaining. But Chelmsford made it a nervy ending as they struck four minutes from time, throwing everyone forward, but we held out.

http://i.imgur.com/FNXXoWC.png

And so there it is, our first major step forward on this career as we are crowned Vanarama National South league champions fourth time of asking. We played forty two league games this season with us picking up twenty one wins, ten draws and eleven defeats over the season, massing up seventy three points, smashing our previous best points tally of fifty nine last season. We also finished on a solid plus twenty goal difference, that handing us the title.

http://i.imgur.com/roue1pH.png

One man we owe our season to, not myself as manager, but this twenty one year old striker who has bettered himself in his second season in charge. He was the top scorer in the league last year and has been crowned top scorer again this year, upon that he was also named player of the season and broke the 'league goals per season' record for the competition, netting thirty five goals in forty two league games.

It's taken, what, three or so seasons? Tremendous achievement pal.
Outstanding achievement, Hassall's been a real talisman for you!

Any chance of you releasing the details and stats of the club from the Editor? (Finances, Attendances etc.) Would love to try something like this myself but can't seem to get the right numbers
Just caught up with this career! Got to say I'm loving it!

Looks like you have some player in Hassall!

Congratulations on the league win!!
