Can we become bigger than Mansfield FC?
At the moment, there is only one recognizable team in Mansfield which, as we all know is League two's Mansfield FC. But what if there was two? Bristol has two teams, Manchester has two teams, so why can't Mansfield? Follow me as we see how long it will take to become bigger than Mansfield FC.
SEASON 1 - PT1
A brief overview
I have signed the contract and I am now AFC Mansfield newest manager!
At £525 p/w, I am extremely happy!!
We start in the Northern Premier D1 East, 4 Division's below Mansfield who are currently 3rd favorites to be promoted to League 1. Below are the the competitions that we are competing in with the boards expectations.
Time to meet the squad!!
A squad of 18, mixture of both old and young. Looking at the squad, it looks like I will want to focus centrally due to the 4 good midfielders we already have. Players like Jamie McGuire and Jonathan D'Laryea will hopefully be a solid 2 in font of the back 4. However, the lack of central defenders is concerning and dipping into the market is going to be a must. Lastly Grant Ryan is the only recognizable striker so will have bring in another key striker to play along side him.
And finally, the kit/facilitates and finances.
So there is an overview of the club and what we got to work with. In my next update, I will of hopefully bring in some defenders and a striker or 2 and show you our pre season results.
