The British Steel Challenge 2016...
Anyone fancying conquering Britain?

http://i.imgur.com/P0soy.png?1?8218


For a fourth year running the British Steel challenge returns to Susie only this year there is a slight change with it! The challenge is no longer unbeaten following Gendo's success a few years ago ticking off all thirty six trophies on a long, windy path! But can you be the one to challenge him and put your name down on the all times great list to have ever conquered Britain?

So what is the challenge: You have to win every trophy from England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland in any order you want. However you must only use British and Irish players!

The challenge is made a little easier by counting promotion from finishing second in the league, or via the playoffs as the title but this is your choice. Any success in Europe or with the national teams are just an added note on your history but won't count towards this challenge.

Below is a the challenge leaderboard, once we get people on to the challenge we will add your name and a link to your story should you start one so people can follow it easily. Once you've won a trophy be it league or cup, I will need to see a screenshot for it to count.

Rules:
  • Only use British and Irish players
  • Must start with Sunday League Reputation
  • You may start at a club or start unemployed, your choice
  • You MUST send me a screenshot of each trophy won for it to count
Below is the list of playable trophy's within the game when you load all the home nations.(Downloaded competitions and expansions are not allowed)
England
Fa Trophy, Vanarama National North/South, Vanarama National, Johnson's Paint Trophy,Sky Bet League Two, Sky Bet League One,Sky Bet Championship, League Cup, Community Shield, FA Cup, Premiership

Scotland
Challenge Cup, League Two, League One, Championship, League Cup, Scottish Cup, Premiership

Ireland
Munster Senior Cup, Division 1, League Cup, Senior Challenge Cup, Premiership

Northern Ireland
Mid-Ulster Cup, Steel & Son's Cup, Interim Cup, County Antrim Shield, Division Two, First division, League Cup, FA Cup, Setanta Cup, Premiership

Wales
League Cup, FAW Cup, Premiership

All the best to all the challengers....

Yes, you can sign Welsh players as they're part of Britain.
I would have done this challenge if I didn't have to use British and Irish players only

Those have always been the rules since this challenge began.

Well, it kinda ruins the intent of the challenge if you had non-British Isle players.

You need to get rid of them/place them in the reserves, they are unable to play

Correct. As an example, when I took on the challenge back in 2013, I took over an Arsenal squad several years in that 18 non-British Isle players. Sold them all and made £200M+, and turned it around onto fellow Premier League teams, strictly looking at British Isle players.

Hey Dreamtrip here himself, got a question guys, i just got in my stream, are we allowed to use players from the Cayman Islands as it is a britsh Territory.
Have just started this challenge unemployed.
One question: What about staff, is it allowed to have non british island staff?
Staff has no limits.

Think this was covered in previous versions but just want to clarify;

Players born abroad but with British nationality - providing they haven't played a full international game for a non-British team, they are ok to be used.

i.e. John Cofie - born in Ghana but has British nationality. Am I ok to use him until he plays for Ghana? Similar to those born in Britain but then play for another team through parentage.

can you sign foreign players, and never use them and just put them on loan, for a few years then sell to make a bit of cash?

Now, this is something I've never really thought of. I only looked at it from the perspective that you can only play British/Irish players, therefore only sign those players. Seeing what you're talking about (signing and loaning out with the intention of resale), I guess as long as you don't play them in your first team, then I don't see why you can't do that.

Good idea @Charlotte Ward with the signing foreign players suggestion, it'd be hard however to make muchof a profit if they're not playing regular football or out on loan.
