Warriors: May 2021

https://i.imgur.com/x3KT85o.png - https://i.imgur.com/d2RLbPk.png - https://i.imgur.com/wl3DfiT.png

With June upon us, it turned out to be a short month on the field as we only had to play the minimum of three games with one of them vs. champions Home United being in the S.League while we concluded the AFC Cup group stage with a trip to Global and then also had the first leg of the AFC Cup semi final.

AFC Cup ASEAN Group F - Match Day Six

Our AFC Cup ASEAN group concluded with a trip to the Philippines to face Global and we returned to Singapore with a deserved three one success despite falling behind as Reyes gave the hosts an eleventh minute lead but striker Ghani equalised twenty minutes later. A second half double from right winger El Habbib saw us secure a three one win as he struck after sixty eight and eighty six minutes. We will face another Filipino side in Meralco in the semi finals which is played over two legs.

S.League - Match Day Thirteen

The one and only league game this month saw us welcome champions Home United and the points were shared in a one one draw as Ghani gave us the lead in the fifteenth minute but we couldn't hold on because centre back Lim Swee Swee put the ball through his own net with twenty two minutes remaining. We deserved to win the game though but c'est le vie.

AFC Cup ASEAN - Semi Final, First Leg

We then welcomed Meralco in the semi final first leg of the AFC Cup as we edged a five goal thriller, winning three two as striker Ghani got us off to a flyer with a fourth minute goal and then on twenty minutes an own goal from Menzi doubled our lead, Ghani's second of the game saw us take a three nil lead and we were seemingly cruising against the Filipino's - a brace from Cutamora gave the visitors hope going into the second leg.

May round-up


It seems pointless to post the league table this month so it does since just one league game was played and that ended in a score draw against the now no longer unbeaten leaders Home United. Hougang United are now propping up the table and two points adrift of DPMM. We find ourselves still in third place and seven points behind the leaders but just two points behind second placed Albirex (S).
This challenge is now over.
At the moment @tongey but because I'm the current manager I expect things to go badly in no time. Home United are the best club in Singapore, it'll take a monumental challenge to topple them.

Warriors: April 2021

https://i.imgur.com/x3KT85o.png - https://i.imgur.com/d2RLbPk.png - https://i.imgur.com/wl3DfiT.png

It's been a tremendous start to life at Warriors with five wins from our seven S.League games currently and a goal difference of +9 and within the last month two league games were played - a disappointing single goal defeat to (at the time) win-less Tampines and a two nil success over Geylang International. April is a busy month for Warriors as we've got eight competitive fixtures over two competitions - the AFC Cup and the S.League,

S.League - Match Day Eight

April began with our eighth S.League game of the season and a trip to the twenty twenty runners-up Albirex (S) and they made us suffer our third defeat of the current campaign as the hosts recorded a three two success. Brazilian attacking midfielder Mello got us off to a flyer after just five minutes and when Ghani doubled the lead ten minutes into the second half we were confident in picking up maximum points - Albirex (S) had different ideas though as a brace from Ito and a Nakai goal in between saw the home side secure maximum points.

AFC Cup ASEAN Group F - Match Day Three

It was then back to AFC Cup action as we welcomed Filipino side Global and both sides produced a six goal thriller at Choa Chu Kang Stadium. The team from the Philippines took the lead on twenty minutes through Soldevilla's first of the game but Ghani's first of his brace levelled the scores a minute later, on fifty six minutes Soldevilla's second saw Global re-take the lead but again we levelled the scores at two apiece when El Habbib scored on sixty eight minutes. Reyes then gave Global the lead for the third time with just nine minutes remaining but when they thought they were going to hold on, Ghani's second of the game rescued a point.

S.League - Match Day Nine

Back to domestic action following that three apiece draw against Global, we now welcomed win-less Hougang United in the S.League and managed to defeat them following a two one victory - inform striker Ghani gave us the lead after twenty minutes but win-less Hougang equalised in the second minute of first half stoppage time, Ghani's second of the game with seven minutes remaining proved to be the winner.

AFC Cup ASEAN Group F - Match Day Four

We then made the trip to Myanmar to face Yadanarbon in our fourth AFC Cup action and a late goal from El Habbib saw us record a hard fought three two victory. Goals from Ghani after six and thirty one minutes had us seemingly in cruise control against Yadanarbon but two goals in the space of a minute from Min Zaw Oo saw the Myanmar based side make it two all before El Habbib scored the winner on eighty minutes.

S.League - Match Day Ten

The last time we faced Tampines we suffered an embarrassing one nil defeat and that still remains their only S.League win to date because we got revenge in the home game, winning four one as Ghani continued his prolific form with a hat trick thanks to goals in the third, seventy eighth and eighty second minute while El Habbib scored the other goal on the quarter hour - Azeman scored what turned out to be a consolation goal for Tampines on sixty four minutes.

AFC Cup ASEAN Group F - Match Day Five

A single goal from left winger Gabriel Quak was enough to secure a one nil win over Malaysian side Kedah at home.

S.League - Match Day Eleven

The eleventh S.League match day saw Warriors suffer a fourth league defeat as Balestier came from behind to secure a two one win. Mello got us off to a flyer when he scored after three minutes, Farhan made it one one on fourteen minutes and the same player scored the winner with the game entering second half stoppage time, a disappointing defeat but we did have our third choice keeper in goal.

S.League - Match Day Twelve

A long long month concluded with a hard fought two one win against my former employers DPMM - Mello once again opened the scoring when he scored after eleven minutes but Ahmad levelled on twenty six minutes but a tense game was decided in the seventy second minute when winger Gabriel Quak scored.

April round-up


We remain in third position after a decent month despite losing two games (vs. Albirex (S) and Balestier) and we are seven points behind the reigning champions Home United who are still unbeaten. No one is currently win-less but Balestier currently prop up the table a point behind Hougang United and two points behind DPMM.


In the AFC Cup we find ourselves top of our group, five points clear of Global but we haven't secured qualification to the next round and I've no idea what the rules of the competition actually is because I haven't thought of checking but we're unbeaten with one group game remaining - every other club has won just one game each. We should hopefully seal qualification the next round.

Warriors: March 2021

https://i.imgur.com/x3KT85o.png - https://i.imgur.com/d2RLbPk.png - https://i.imgur.com/wl3DfiT.png

It hasn't been a terrible start to life at Warriors which is a welcome change for this career with just one league defeat (vs. Home United) from the opening five S.League fixtures and we've also kept four clean sheets from the opening five games - it's been a promising start but it's also important that it's maintained. We enter March with four games awaiting us including two in the AFC Cup against Yadanarbon and Kedah while we've also got two league games against win-less Tampines and Geylang International.

AFC Cup ASEAN Group F - Match Day One

The month began with some AFC Cup action as we played host to Yadanarbon and deservedly defeated them two nil, striker Ghani gave us the lead after fourteen minutes before an own goal from Hia with just eleven minutes remaining doubled the score.

S.League - Match Day Six

We then made the trip to win-less Tampines three days later and suffered an irritating single goal defeat as the hosts recorded a S.League win for the first time this season because Azeman scored the winning goal on fifty three minutes.

AFC Cup ASEAN Group F - Match Day Two

It was then back to AFC Cup action as we headed to Malaysia to the second group game and were held to a one one score. An own goal from Chua Heng-Huat after only fifteen minutes gave the Malaysian's the lead but Ghani's equaliser twenty minutes later saw the points shared.

S.League - Match Day Seven

The final match of the month saw us welcome Geylang International to Choa Chu Kang Stadium and a two nil success saw us end the month on a high courtesy of two first half goals. We broke the deadlock on sixteen minutes when Ghani scored and then twelve minutes later central midfielder Rahim doubled the scores and that's how the game finished.

March round-up


A mixed month domestically has seen us drop down a position and into third now but it's still early days, Tampines' win against ourselves is still there only S.League win thus far while Hougang United are bottom and win-less. Champions Home United lead the way and are already six points clear of last seasons' runners-up Albirex (S).


Meanwhile in our AFC Cup group, we find ourselves top after the opening two rounds of fixtures and the only team thus far in the group to have actually won a game (2-0 vs. Yadanarbon at home on match day one) while we've got three more group games next month in what's going to be a busy enough month because alongside the three AFC Cup games we have five S.League games as well.


Pleased to announce that I've completed my Continental B Licence and now immediately I'm being allowed to go onto the next step which will see me capture my Continental A Licence and then I'm just one step away from completing the entire set of coaching qualifications. It's going to take around an entire year worth of study and Warriors will be covering the near two and a half thousand pound fee for the course and now I feel "obliged" that I need to remain at the football club while I'm studying.

Warriors: February 2021

https://i.imgur.com/x3KT85o.png - https://i.imgur.com/d2RLbPk.png - https://i.imgur.com/wl3DfiT.png

With an unbeaten preseason program behind us and just a few players in the door it's now time for the competitive action to begin with Warriors Football Club and I'm hoping for a good campaign ahead as we look to conquer the top two sides. The opening month see us play five games with all of them being in the S.League - we have three home fixtures against Young Lions, Balestier and my former employers DPMM while the club make journey's to Hougang United and the champions Home United.

S.League - Match Day One

The twenty twenty one S.League campaign begin with Young Lions visiting Choa Chu Kang Stadium and a twenty sixth minute goal from Brazilian debutant Mello proved the difference in a one nil victory.

S.League - Match Day Two

One week later the side made the journey to Hougang United and it turned out to be back-to-back victories and back-to-back clean sheets as Warriors produced a two nil win - an own goal from Mohd Fauzi on seventeen minutes gave us the lead, El Habbib doubled the lead with twenty five minutes remaining.

S.League - Match Day Three

It was then three wins on the bounce thanks to this three nil home success over Balestier and two goals in the space of six first half minutes from an Amin own goal and Gabriel Quak had us in control, Rahim added a third Warriors goal with just nine minutes remaining to give us a deserved victory.

S.League - Match Day Four

Lokila's goal in the first minute of first half stoppage time gave Home United a fully deserved single goal victory - our first competitive defeat since I arrived.

S.League - Match Day Five

The opening month of the new season concluded with a deserved three goals to nil win against my former employers DPMM thanks to three second half goals. An own goal from Yura Indera Putera gave us a forty ninth minute lead, striker Ghani scored his first goal of the season nine minutes later before a penalty from El Habbib on seventy one minutes sealed the deserved win after a frustrating and cagey first half.

February round-up


Although I don't think it's going to last because I'm in charge, it's been a promising start to the twenty twenty one campaign as we find ourselves in second place, behind leaders Geylang International on what I'd assume would be goals scored and they've a game in hand as well. It's been a struggling start for Hougang United, DPMM, Young Lions and Tampines who are all winless after four or five league games.

Warriors: Preseason round-up 2021

https://i.imgur.com/x3KT85o.png - https://i.imgur.com/d2RLbPk.png - https://i.imgur.com/wl3DfiT.png

With an already strong squad at my disposal I didn't think many changes were required at Warriors Football Club ahead of the twenty twenty one S.League campaign as I would love to topple the top two clubs - Home United and Albirex (S), the Choa Chu Kang Stadium outfit last won the league title a few seasons ago.


Just three players ended up arriving at the football club during the preseason with one, Elliot Ng from Young Lions already being confirmed before I arrived - Brazilian attacking midfielder Mello arrived on a free from "unattached" and Gary Loo, a central midfielder, joined from Tiong Bahru. Four players left the Choa Chu Kang Stadium as Jasper Chan joined Young Lions on a free while Ahmas Jamaluddin joined Geylang International on-loan - Chai Meng Young and Hafiz Mohd Nor both joined our feeder club SAFSA on loan deals.


The opposition may not have been the strongest but we've wrapped up a perfect preseason with five wins from the five games arranged and three consecutive clean sheets. Things started with a straight forward four one success on the road against Pasir Ris, we then secured an excellent two one home win versus Johor DT. We then had three consecutive three nil wins to conclude the preseason program as Tanjong Pagar, Ang Mo Kio United and Sunrise Place were all defeated.
It was brutal @DNZY it really was. Please stop judging me now, it would be nice. I don't think I'll return there.

Nope but it probably would've been boring if I had immediate success @r96Skinner, I've still got no intention in letting this save die because I WILL have success.

Yep it hasn't been the greatest starts to one of my Football Manager careers @jameo_94 but that's fine. Playing friendlies against small clubs? Funny enough, that's what I usually do but once the competitive campaign starts, well that's when it goes to pot. It's not that I'm terrible at the game, I'm just struggling to find consistency - unless I go on a long losing streak, then I find the wrong kind of consistency.

Second Third Time's The Charm


With my second stint at DPMM coming to an end at the end of the season, with the final game being a single goal defeat away to Geylang International, I tendered my resignation with immediate effect and I don't think I'll ever return to the Brunei/Singaporean side for a third stint. With minimal jobs available due to my reputation failing to rise at the moment I have had to remain in Singapore, but what "idiotic" team would actually want to employ a manager with zero consistency?


When the vacancy became available I wasted no time in applying for the vacancy at Warriors Football Club, I believe they're the fourth best team (in odds for winning the league) in Singapore and more importantly another professional side and they're actually Singaporean so I shouldn't need to worry about going over the non-EU player rule - if I'm successful. I tried my best in the interview and now I'm just hoping they can give me another opportunity to prove my managerial worth.


And it's now official - I have been named as the new first team manager of Warriors, the team who finished fourth in the S.League last season and I'm delighted they've given me an opportunity. The plan is to try and do well with them in an attempt to try and get the vacancy at either Home United or Albirex (S) who are arguably the two biggest clubs in the Singaporean S.League - I still need to return to Wales but I'm waiting in-patiently for The New Saints job to come up.

DPMM: November 2020

https://i.imgur.com/DHXr4zG.png - https://i.imgur.com/OexXLbf.png - https://i.imgur.com/00Yb5Tf.png

Another trophy less season has come and gone and my second stint at DPMM has been quite awful with just two league wins to our name (three overall) this season. We head into the final month of the campaign with just one more S.League game remaining and that will see us make the trip to Bedok ActiveSG Stadium to take on Geylang International, a trip that will need to see us get a plane to it. Can we at least end a dismal campaign on a high?

S.League - Match Day Twenty Four

No is the answer because Geylang International picked up a single goal victory in this fixture as Bakri scored what turned out to be the winner with only fifteen minutes on the clock.

November round-up


A dismal campaign for Duli Pengiran Muda Mahkota has come to an end and thankfully because Tampines also lost on the final day we've had to settle for an eighth place finish in what'll be my final game in charge of the Brunei/Singapore outfit as I have no intention in coming back for the twenty twenty one campaign. Home United won the league.


The final piece of news this season is that I have indeed tendered my resignation after only one hundred and thirty six days in charge which is sixteen days shorter than the previous manager, Maniam Chetty, who got understandably sacked. Steve Kean, who had been in charge for over four years remains the longest manager in charge of this football club (since the save began in twenty seventeen). I ended up being replaced just four days later by young Singaporean Itimi Dickson who left Young Lions to take up the post.

DPMM: October 2020

https://i.imgur.com/DHXr4zG.png - https://i.imgur.com/OexXLbf.png - https://i.imgur.com/00Yb5Tf.png

Last month we finally picked up some more victories in the S.League and my first two since returning to the club as both Young Lions and Balestier were defeated and there's just two games this month as we host Tampines before travelling to Home United a week later.

S.League - Match Day Twenty Two

The first of just two matches throughout October saw us welcome basement side Tampines as the bottom two went head-to-head and the game finished score-less for the second time under my short return to date - Ikhogo was dismissed for the visitors on seventy three minutes but we couldn't find a winner in a game involving two poor teams - just five wins so far this season between the two sides.

S.League - Match Day Twenty Three

Seven days later we travelled to the league leaders Home United and they duffed us five nil as we have now failed to score a single league goal this month. Both Izzdin Shafiq and Song Ui-Young both hit braces while Khairul Anuar also netted.

October round-up


Still second bottom with just one league game remaining and it's been an awful enough return to the football club who sacked me last time I was employed and I've made the decision to depart the club at the end of the season. Home United are champions.

You can hurt my feelings all you want @DNZY, it's been a brutal return to DPMM and career thus far (minus perhaps managing Rhyl).

DPMM: September 2020

https://i.imgur.com/DHXr4zG.png - https://i.imgur.com/OexXLbf.png - https://i.imgur.com/00Yb5Tf.png

It's been a brutal return to the Singapore side DPMM as we are yet to be victorious since my return around three months ago, the only positive side is that I've managed to get Muhd Maududi scoring goals, he had zero goals before I came in and was playing out of position as well which didn't help. September brings us three games against Young Lions, Albirex (S) and Balestier

S.League - Match Day Nineteen

It's a win! We travelled to fifth placed Young Lions and produced an excellent two nil win on our travels - Azwan Ali broke the deadlock on thirty eight minutes and then the points were secured on sixty four minutes when Lokila doubled the lead.

S.League - Match Day Twenty

It was then back-to-back away games as we visited league challengers Albirex (S) as we secured a one one draw. Muhd Maududi got us off to a flyer with a goal on ten minutes but we couldn't hold on for an excellent win because Ito levelled for the hosts.

S.League - Match Day Twenty One

The third and final fixture this month saw us welcome Balestier to Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium and produced a four two win. Goals from Amin (own goal), Azwan Ali and Muhd Maududi (pen) had us three goals up but Nanda Lin Kyaw Chit pulled one back before half time, Ali's second of the game made it four one before Kyaw Chit's second of the game was no more than a second consolation goal.

September round-up


We remain second bottom but it was nice to see some great dots after a horrible return to the football club to date. Of course we can't win the league, nor qualify for the AFC Cup but now it's all about playing for a bit of pride and trying and finish as high as possible.


And a successful month on the field ended with a bit of successful news off the field as I've been allowed to go on a latest coaching course which'll see me capture my Continental B Licence if I'm successful. It will take around six months worth of study and the football club are covering the nine hundred and sixty pound fee for the course, if only my reputation would hurry up and rise then I'd be laughing.

«This comment has been edited»
Will it though @Dan? Can guarantee I won't get sacked this time around.

It's been a tough start to the challenge thus far @itchycoo and doesn't look like it's going to pick up anytime soon - my reputation in three years hasn't even reached a full star yet, I should stop getting sacked though.

Yeah I'm glad I'm getting the coaching qualifications @gaz12321 and if my reputation can increase then I'll be "laughing".

DPMM: August 2020

https://i.imgur.com/DHXr4zG.png - https://i.imgur.com/OexXLbf.png - https://i.imgur.com/00Yb5Tf.png

It's been a tough return to DPMM for myself as we're win-less in my opening five competitive fixtures, including a S.League Cup group stage exit. There's two league matches in August, both at home as we face Hougang United and Warriors. Can I get my first competitive victory since my return or will the struggle continue for the basement side?

S.League - Match Day Seventeen

The first of two home fixtures this month saw us welcome Hougang United and the struggle continued as the game ended nil nil.

S.League - Match Day Eighteen

Five days later Warriors then visited and eased to a five two success on their travels as the visiting side had a five nil lead at the interval as Ikhsan Fandi bagged a hat trick while Ghani and Gabriel Quak also scored. Second half goals from Othman and Muhd Maududi made the scoreline a little more respectable but we need to start getting more points on the board.

August round-up


Still win-less since my return to the football club but we've moved off the bottom on goal difference. It's a two way race for the league title as both Home United and Albirex (S) are well clear of the third placed side Geylang.
Certainly hope so @r96Skinner.

DPMM: July 2020

https://i.imgur.com/DHXr4zG.png - https://i.imgur.com/OexXLbf.png - https://i.imgur.com/00Yb5Tf.png

For the second time in this career I've returned to the Singaporean side Duli Pengiran Muda Mahkota or DPMM for short looking to have better success than I did during my first stint when I was sacked during the mid-season break. The second coming starts in July and begins with a trip to fellow struggling side Tampines before hosting Geylang International - we also face Albirex (S), Warriors and Home United in Group A of the S.League Cup.

S.League - Match Day Fifteen

My return to the football began with a boring nil nil draw against second bottom Tampines. We perhaps should've won but didn't unfortunately.

S.League - Match Day Sixteen

The first home game on my second coming saw us welcome Gaylang International and they would ruin my return, winning two one. First half strikes from Ichikawa and Bakri put the visitors in control, Mokhtar pulled one back for DPMM on fifty seven minutes but we couldn't find an equaliser.

S.League Group A - Match Day One

Our first match in the group stages of the S.League Cup was a frustrating one as we squandered a two nil lead at home to Albirex (S) and also had two players sent off. Muhd Maududi scored twice in a minutes to put us seemingly in control but Albirex pulled one back two minutes before half time through Hara - centre back Bradley was then dismissed two minutes into the second half, Inoue made it two apiece for the away side but that wasn't the end because with twenty one minutes remaining Rosli was off and the hosts were down to nine men and somehow we held on for a point.

S.League Group A - Match Day Two

Just three days later the side visited Warriors and were swept-ed aside by the hosts, winning two nil as Hamid Hussain and Zainal struck but Warriors also played the entire second half with ten men when Rahin was dismissed. Poor.

S.League Group A - Match Day Three

The third and final group A game saw us host Home United and two second half goals gave Home the away victory as Ul-Young and Said scored.

July round-up


Not much really needs to be said at this stage in my second coming. Played two games, haven't won either and remain bottom with one single win all season.

I have forgotten to take a screenshot from the League Cup group but iirc we finished bottom anyway so it wasn't pretty reading. I feel the Albirex game killed our confidence a little, well that, and the fact we're bottom of the table thus far.

It was @ptfc1876, it's the second time Bangor's toppled TNS in winning the Welsh Premier.

Unfinished business


I have made my decision to leave the Welsh Premier League side Rhyl after two seasons at Belle Vue but I have chosen NOT to resign at the moment but I know I won't be at the club whenever preseason comes around in late June/early July. With limited jobs available I have made the decision to return to Singapore.


So it looks like I will be returning to Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium and returning to DPMM despite them sacking me during my last stint. I chose to attend the interview and I was hoping they'll give me a second chance at the club.


And they have indeed given me a second chance as I have been appointed the new first team manager and now it's my second stint at the football club (I usually don't like going to the same club more than once) but I thought I'd return as I hope to make my second chance with the Singaporean/Bruneian club. I plan to only be here until at least the end of the current season, depending on how it ends up going.


But I will return to DPMM with the club bottom of the table with just one win from the opening fourteen games and I don't know what's happened between my first stint and me returning to the club. I've got a feeling my second stint at the club is going to be a struggle.
I'm a little surprised to see Rangers finishing so low down, especially considering I finished second with them on my save.

Who took the vacancy btw and is he still in charge?
What was the original title that it needed to be changed if you don't mind me asking? Good luck with this @Eric Portapotty.
Just need the correct job to become available @DNZY before I decide to jump. My reputation is still on minimal.

Oh @Dan I do agree.

It's been a poor season at Belle Vue this season compared to one year ago when we secured a top six finish, this season we can finish as low as ninth and with just one game remaining I'm hoping I can end the campaign on a high as we host Llandudno on the final day.

Welsh Premier League Playoff Conference - Match Day Thirty Two

An early goal from the prolific Luke Boundford saw us wrap up the Welsh Premier League campaign with a single goal victory against Llandudno at Belle Vue but the afternoon was soured a little when right back Ryan Connolly was dismissed with four minutes remaining.

May round-up


The success on the final day of the season proved cruical as due to Barry Town United also winning it stopped us finishing in tenth position. Bangor City pipped The New Saints to the title on goal difference but I feel that my time at Belle Vue is over as I'm not going to be able to progress with them further.
@Shedender - haha, I spent most of the season in 7th so I can't complain. Don't really get how everybody else smashed it, I've been playing these games for 20 years and I found this tough, took me 6 months to find a decent striker.

See I didn't have a problem with a goalscorer, I had a problem keeping clean sheets.
Yeovil in the Premier League?!? Great achievement and rise from League Two, lets hope you don't suffer an immediate relegation.

I won't be able to qualify for the European playoffs this season as I can't finish any higher than eighth place with just three league games remaining in the Welsh Premier League - the penultimate month saw us play two games which would see us make us the four hour plus journey to Havefordwest County before hosting already relegated Conwy Borough.

Welsh Premier League Playoff Conference - Match Day Thirty

The penultimate month began with the trip to Bridge Meadow to face Havefordwest and the hosts secured a five two victory which officially qualifies them for the European playoffs. Luke Boundford (15) and Emir Weeks (pen 63) scored our goals but braces from Stephen's, Gray and an Owen goal sealed maximum points for County.

Welsh Premier League Playoff Conference - Match Day Thirty One

We then welcomed Conwy to Belle Vue, the game ended nil each. Boring stuff but the relegated Borough go home the happier side I'm sure.

April round-up


There's not much to say at this stage of the season from Rhyl's point of view. We are down to ninth and if it wasn't for goal difference then it could've been lower. Conwy are gone. Llandudno will be in the relegation/promotion playoff and now there's just the league to play for and it'll be a last day shoot-out between Bangor City and The New Saints.
Nothing personal @gaz12321 but I'm so glad someone did as bad as me in the league.
I'm wishing you the worst of luck with this @Sean_67.
Easier said than done @Dan especially when a) no one wants me and b) there's limited jobs out there with crap reputation but I'll be certainly looking in the summer to move on, ideally to a non dead end job.

Three wins last month, confidence at the club was still solid enough despite slipping down one position to eighth in the Welsh Premier League Playoff Conference as those wins came against Newtown, Barry and Conwy. March brought just the two league fixtures this month as we welcomed Newtown to Belle Vue but before hand we made the half an hour or so journey to Llandudno.

Welsh Premier League Playoff Conference - Match Day Twenty Eight

It was the trip to The Giant Hospitality Stadium that began the short month to face Llandudno and the second bottom side eased to a four one victory courtesy of doubles from Williams and Smolarczyk. Luke Boundford bagged a consolation goal in the third minute of second half stoppage time.

Welsh Premier League Playoff Conference - Match Day Twenty Nine

We then had to wait a fortnight until our next fixture, the home tie against Newtown and the points ended up being shared in a one one draw at Belle Vue in which the away side struck first on fourteen minutes through Bakare's goal but four minutes into the second half Luke Boundford levelled the scores and neither side were unable to find a winner.

March round-up


A short but win-less month means we remain in eighth position and more than likely out of any chance we had qualifying for the European playoffs. Form needs to pick up though because we are only four points ahead of third bottom Newtown. Conwy, as expected have been relegated while The New Saints are only three points clear at the top with three games remaining.
Again that's true @DNZY but the entire point of this career is I'm supposed to attempt to win every domestic trophy possible, thus far it hasn't exactly gone to plan.

Rhyl: February 2020

Unfortunately we couldn't secure a second top half finish in the Welsh Premier League and had to settle for seventh place but being eleven points clear of second bottom Llandudno I'd like to think we are safe enough for another season. There's five games in the Playoff Conference this month as we will play host to Barry and Havefordwest while we need to make trips to Newtown, Conwy and Barry.

Welsh Premier League Playoff Conference - Match Day Twenty Three

February kicked off with a trip to ninth placed Newtown and we returned from the near one hundred and sixty seven mile round trip with maximum points as Will Bell slotted home a penalty with just four minutes remaining at Latham Park.

Welsh Premier League Playoff Conference - Match Day Twenty Four

Just three days later and it was all about the comeback when Barry visited Belle Vue and took an eighth minute lead through Smith's goal but when the on-loan The New Saints defender Michael Wardley equalised just three minutes later we didn't look back and further goals from Luke Boundford and Declan Poole had us three one up at the interval - Tom Pugh added goal number four on fifty three minutes and that's how it finished.

Welsh Premier League Playoff Conference - Match Day Twenty Five

After the euphoria from beating Barry Town United last time out, it was a second consecutive home fixture but this one was a little disheartening as Havefordwest County produced an excellent three one success on their travels and made the near eight and a half hour round trip worthwhile. The visitors took the lead when Gray struck on twenty three minutes, Luke Boundford's goal on thirty six proved just to be a consolation goal because Healing put County back into the lead before half time and then Gray's second of the afternoon with nine minutes remaining sealed the three points for the away side.

Welsh Premier League Playoff Conference - Match Day Twenty Six

A dramatic ending saw us secure a hard fought two one win away to the basement club despite Declan Poole's eighth minute goal getting us off to a flyer at Y Morfa Stadium, Ellis equalised for Conwy nine minutes into the second half but the dramatic ending saw us be awarded a ninety fifth minute penalty in which Emir Weeks to make the short journey home a happy one for the travelling Rhyl support.

Welsh Premier League Playoff Conference - Match Day Twenty Seven

But the month ended with a second half collapse at Jenner Park as Barry scored three goals to secure a comfortable and well deserved victory as it was a long and miserable journey home - goals from Wright (56), Huggins (77) and Smith (84) ensured maximum points for Barry.

February round-up


Despite picking up three victories throughout the month we have actually slipped down a position and are now in eighth which is a little annoying but it's due to goal difference and nothing else. Conwy remain bottom and look certain for an immediate return to the lower divisions while The New Saints remain top and seven points clear of second placed Bangor as once again it's looking like a two horse race for the title.
Such a pity it looks like you'll be exiting the Europa League soon @DNZY, prove me wrong pal and turn the tie around against Vorskla.
Oh I agree @DNZY but unfortunately due to my reputation only crap clubs will want me.

Rhyl: January 2020

It's a new year and it's been a decent campaign thus far for Rhyl Football Club who find themselves in eighth position but I'm still considering my future at the club due to the fact it's impossible to progress with them or any "poor" side for that matter - but onto the action and January brought three league matches - trips to rivals Bangor City and Barry Town United and a home encounter with Cefn Druids.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Twenty

Just like the final game of twenty nineteen, the first game in twenty twenty saw us make the thirty seven trip to Bangor City and once again Bangor came out victorious, winning four two. Kieran Holsgrove and Doran both bagged braces for the hosts while Luke Boundford hit a double for ourselves.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Twenty One

It was then thirteen days until our next game, a trip to Jenner Park to face Barry Town United and talk about a second half collapse on our travels and I need to take full responsibility for the collapse. Goals from Luke Boundford, Will Bell and Jordan Barrow had us three goals to nil up at half time but a second half hat trick from James and a Southam goal in the second minute of added time sealed the Barry fightback. Pure and utter frustration.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Twenty Two

Match day twenty two saw us welcome Cefn Druids to Belle Vue and a tenth minute goal from Luke Boundford turned out to be enough for a crucial and much needed three points against the Druids.

January round-up


So with the split now confirmed it's going to be a bottom half finish for Rhyl which isn't the worst as I knew it was going to be difficult to secure another top half finish but I'm also confident we're strong enough to avoid being dragged into a relegation battle. Conwy remain bottom while TNS are twelve points clear and are taking a strangle hold on retaining the Welsh Premier League crown.

It looks like I'm going to be the only one who finished lower than second place ffs.
I feel it's time to move on come at least the end of the season @Dan but because my reputation is still poor, no proper clubs will want me so I may need to annoyingly stay put.

Rhyl: December 2019

It's been a promising season thus far at Belle Vue with Rhyl lying in seventh place after the opening fifteen games as we have now entered the final month of twenty nineteen and there's four Welsh Premier League games awaiting us with three of them being at home against Havefordwest, Newtown and Bangor while a trip to Connah's Quay will also take place throughout December.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Sixteen

Two goals inside the opening half an hour saw us record a two goals to nil victory at Belle Vue against Havefordwest County as Luke Boundford and Michael Pritchard both scored.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Seventeen

We then made the trip to Deeside Stadium to face Connah's Quay and produced a six goal thriller following a three all draw as the game finished three apiece. Michael Prichard got us off to a flyer with a goal after six minutes but a hat trick from Shackleton saw Connah's Quay take a three one lead at half time after Shackleton scored after eleven, seventeen and forty four minutes. Luke Boundford pulled a goal back three minutes into the second half but then both sides went down to ten men when Michael Pearson (63) and Evans (71) were dismissed, Boundford equalised with five minutes remaining to make it three all.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Eighteen

It was back-to-back draws following a two two draw at home to Newtown. Reed gave the visitors the lead but goals from Michael Prichard (pen) and Luke Boundford had given us a half time lead but we couldn't hold on for maximum points as Reed's second goal of the game saw the points shared at Belle Vue.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Nineteen

For the second season running a derby game against Bangor concluded the year and it would the Citizens fans who would be heading home happy following a two one success. We got off to a dream start when Luke Boundford scored after just eight minutes but the hosts couldn't hold onto the lead until half time because Adams levelled on forty one minutes and then Kieran Holsgrove won the game for Bangor four minutes into the second half.

December 2019


Due to not winning in the last three games we have slipped down to eighth position in the Welsh Premier League which is annoying but when you choose to play attacking, you need to prepare for conceding goals. Conwy are still bottom of the table but have finally got points on the board, TNS remain top and eleven points clear of Bangor.


Throughout the month of December I was offered an interview at English side Concord Rangers, it was a "dead end" job so was immediately rejected.

Rhyl: November 2019

I think it's time I begin to fire out the updates instead of one every day which it's been like the last few days, minus the fact there's been no update the past three days due to me being busy. Anyway we have reached the penulimate month of the calendar year (November for those who don't know) and we have six matches awaiting us - we will face Carmarthen, Aberystwyth, Conwy, The New Saints and Llandudno in the league while we'll be facing lover league side Goytre United in the third round of the Welsh Cup at Belle Vue.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Eleven

A trip to Camarthen began the month, the game ended nil nil. Yawn.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Twelve

Three days later we welcomed Aberystwyth to Belle Vue and a thirteen minute collapse in the second half saw the visitors head home with a three nil victory. Lucas gave Aberystwyth the lead two minutes into the second half, Hughes-Jones doubled the proceedings on fifty four and then six minutes later Bollard added the third for the away side. Poor but I take the entire blame for the defeat.

Welsh Cup - Third Round

Our run in this season's Welsh Cup ended at the first hurdle (similar to theWord Cup as well) as lower league side Goytre United secured a penalty shootout victory at Belle Vue following a one all draw but Rhyl should've won this with ease as the side dominated. Will Bell gave us the expected lead on twenty one minutes but James levelled for the away side eight minutes later.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Thirteen

Two goals in the first half saw us return to winning ways, securing a two nil victory over the basement side Conwy at home - John Gordon broke the deadlock on sixteen minutes and then with a minute to go until half time, Declan Poole made it two.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Fourteen

Whenever we face The New Saints, whether it be home or away, we will always be "out of our depth" against the only professional side in the division and it continued to be true as the reigning champions secured a four one victory. Wes Fletcher, a brace from Sang and Lofts were on target for the Saints, Luke Boundford bagged a consolation for ourselves near the hour mark.

Welsh Premier League - Match Day Fifteen

And the final fixture of the match saw us face Llandudno at Belle Vue and secure a comfortable three nil success at home as Michael Pritchard's goal after just two minutes got us off to a flyer, Luke Boundford then doubled the lead on the quarter hour before right winger Watkin added goal three on sixty eight minutes.

October round-up


We remain in seventh place which I'm satisfied enough with currently but I'm still contemplating that this'll be my last season at Rhyl. Conwy are still bottom, winless and pointless after fifteen league games while The New Saints have opened a nine point lead at the summit.
Yay can't wait until we're humbled at home by Luton.
I had to use Kerola in my first 5 games due to an injury to the other striker who was far better in pre season, Kerola never even looked like scoring! Kudos to you for getting 37 goals out of him!

And he probably could've scored more than he did. I've never had a striker be so prolific for me in quite a while. Hope more give Kerola game time.
