A career starting with my beloved Yeovil Town Football Club, following our highs of Championship football not that long ago, we now find ourselves outside the football league, playing National League football. A poor run under Darren Way, who lost the fans months before he was finally kicked from the club leaves us under new management.

*Story will commence following full release of the game.

Heartbreak, misery, but hope on the horizon - A Yeovil Town story

https://i.imgur.com/mGAWIV1.png?1

Every year when a new Football Manager game is released, I try to focus on getting one main save/career on here, my main focus throughout the year and I believe this year is the easiest of the lot for me to get stuck into a long term save. Following the quick demise of my beloved Yeovil Town FC, it seems a fitting opportunity to take them back to where we were just a few seasons ago and hopefully, even further.

https://i.imgur.com/lWtA1Nz.png?1

Back at the end of the 2012/13 season, little old Yeovil Town, from Somerset, won promotion via the playoffs to reach the Championship for the first time ever in club history. But push on six seasons and we've slumped to three relegations, including back to back relegations from the Championship down to League Two and narrowly avoiding relegation three times in a row, before finally dropping out of the football league last season, finishing bottom of League 2. Now we find ourselves playing non league football and you feel its a time where the club have to win promotion first time of asking.

Last season was an extremely tough one to take, for every Yeovil Town fan. Manager at the time, Darren Way, lost the fans quite quickly into the season and despite many asking for the board to get rid of him, they were elft stunned when he was offered a new two year deal. Fans started to boycott games, the form didn't improve and eventually, Darren was sacked from the club. But it wasn't just issues at management level, the board also needed to change. John Fry had lost the support of the clubs fans after a lack of money had been shown, even from the Championship season, and often you could hear chants at the game, asking for John Fry to sell up. A long winded summer and its finally happened as Scott Priestnall and Errol Pope take control of the club.

I'll now take the reigns of the club with the main objective to get Yeovil Town back up to their 'happier' days, playing Championship football and who knows, hopefully even higher as we try and knock on the door to Premier League football, potentially one day, Champions League football may even head to Somerset. But that dream is probably a good decade away yet for me.


Management History:
2019/20 - Yeovil Town - National League - TBC*, FA Cup - TBC*, FA Trophy - TBC*


*I shall continue to edit and update this opener over the next couple weeks until full release and then continue to update the history as the seasons go by.
Finally you'll be back playing.

Finally I will @VP., after last years lack of success in the careers area, hopefully it'll be a successive bounce back here.

Thanks @r96Skinner always enjoy LLM saves anyway and what better than my beloved Yeovil!

Thats the plan @DNZY!

A Yeovil Town Football Club - 2019/2020

https://i.imgur.com/mGAWIV1.png?1

So before the story gets going, I thought I'd do a quick summery of the club and where it currently stands in regards to finances, club stature, the squad and the back room staff. This will more than likely be a post I do at the start of each season, so we can gradually see how things improve season to season. But before we get too stuck in to the club, we'll have a quick, sneak peak at the man that has been appointed at the wheel of Yeovil Town.

https://i.imgur.com/6Gtshln.png

Here is 'Dan', the new Yeovil Town FC manager and its his very first venture into football management. The 27 year old, born 20 miles away in Chard signs an initial 1 year contract on just £775 per week. Being new to the management scene, he currently boasts a 'half star' reputation in the management world. It should be an interesting journey, should things go to plan and we'll come back and look at the management profile as the seasons go by and see how the new manager is developing over the years.

https://i.imgur.com/3in7wSw.png

The facilities are also very much unchanged over the years, from our original league two days, to Championship days and now back to non league, they've stayed the same. We play our trade at Huish Park, a 9,565 capacity stadium which includes 5,212 seats and standing terrace either end. Built originally in 1990 and rebuilt in 2000, the stadium is in poor condition and it'll be one thing I look to develop much later on in the save. Our facilities don't really improve from there either. 'Adequate corporate facilities, below average training facilities, poor data analysis facilities and basic youth facilities don't exactly shout out "come sign for us". Average academy coaching, a youth level of '3' and fairly basic youth recruitment means this will be a long journey.

https://i.imgur.com/9RNrXZY.png

As I stated in the opening post, the club have new chairman from this season, so it should be an exciting time for the club. But we are a little short on the staffing front of things in my opinion. Whilst we have a full set of coaches according to the board, we do find ourselves a little short on the recruitment side of things as well as the medical side. I always like to try and get the best staffing structure in the league, so there is work to do here. You need a good backroom to help the team but I'll also be watching the money we spend on staff.

https://i.imgur.com/wzdBNtc.png

Onto the finances and I'm not sure how realistic this is compared to what the club actually have. Being a fan you soon learn that there isn't much money in this club. However we do reportedly have just under £1.2million in the balance which is great for a club in the National League. We don't have a transfer budget available and with only £875 left of the wage budget it looks like it could prove to be tough to recruit much this summer. Its important to control finances at this level as it could hit hard later in the seasons to come.

https://i.imgur.com/gb7Rta6.png

And finally, this is the squad that I inherit at the start of the game, for my first season in management. Its not the biggest squad in the world but I'm confident we should have enough to work with without having to strengthen too much. I may look to get a parent club in as soon as possible and then utilise them for loan deals. Whilst these will be youngsters from the parent club, it will mean we can get some good quality players in. We are quite attacking heavy so could do with a good rotation tactic.

*Post may be slightly altered on full release should any of the information be different.
Ahhh always good to see a @Dan career

Time to get Yeovil punching again!

Good luck
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

Good luck @Dan, should be a fun challenge with Yeovil.
YES! Got to love a classic @Dan career! Best of luck restoring your beloved club! I'll be following along...
Good luck with this one mate
