I'm having a go at managing a team that's on level 9 of the English pyramid, but I'm finding it harder than I thought it would be. Does anyone have any advice for working with basically no wage budget? thanks

I started with Boldmere St.Michaels in the Midland Football Alliance, the first season was disappointing as didn't realise my exact strategy with which I was going to be successful, I soon gained momentum and in seasons 2 and 3 I gained back to back promotions with no wage budget and now in my 4th season I'm in the playoffs looking at promotion to the Blue Sq North (albeit with a small wage budget, used to secure my best players.)

But anyway, tips;
- Search Youth Departures/Released players in each loaded country. I've captured some stars this way; Shaquile Coulthirst, William Ekong, Ryan Mckinnon, De'Reece Vanderhyde, Jordan Williams.
-Ignore reports and recommendations, if the stats are there, sign them up. Phil Creaney (Scottish Centre Mid) is a perfect example for me.
-Speed,Strength,Determination, and Work Rate are all key at this level.
-Although young fresh players are great, golden oldies are great to keep the kids in check.
- I've found success getting mediocre coaches in, and giving everyone the individual focus of the position you want them to play.
-Ignore your board, they're useless, unless they're sugardaddy fronted that is.
-Sign as many non-contract as you like, release the unhappy and the rubbish, but it's better to sign them than miss out.

Good Luck!
