You want some? I'll give it to ya!

So my first save of FM21 is Wealdstone FC and in the spirit of making things difficult for myself... as I like to do. I have set myself a transfer rule that will remain in place for the whole save.

I can only sign players from the English non-league system! 11 Jamie Vardy's? Let's hope so.

I have gone with Wealdstone for a few reasons... 1. Semi-pro team in a league with lots of professional teams (difficult? check) 2. Second smallest stadium in the league (reduced revenue? check) 3. Newly promoted team (more difficulty? check!)

The first Youtube video of the series explains the rules of the save in a bit more detail and takes a first look at the squad and the players we have to sell due to not complying with this rule.

The simple version is this...I can only sign players and staff from English non-league clubs or free agents providing that their last permanent club was a non-league club.

Let's see how high up the pyramid we can get!

In part 6 of this FM21 challenge there is plenty to be feeling good about with the team sitting in the playoffs at the mid way point of season 2. However, with a recent habit of conceding late goals and some cracks starting to appear, it could be a tough game against struggling Woking.
