Thank you to everybody that voted on the poll for what my next story would be. It was close but in the end you voted for me to do a Journeyman save starting with Weston-Super-Mare in the National League South. I'll hopefully be able to get this updated regularly and it will hopefully be my best story to date. Hope this gets a good following and looking forward to seeing how it goes...View attachment 114720
That is me. Mr F.M. Saddler. I've managed to get my self into an odd situation.
See I live down in Weston and recently they had a managerial vacancy. Living near the ground and being jobless after finishing University and struggling to do anything with what seems like a wasted 3 years, I mean degree, I thought I would apply for that vacancy.
However when the club got back to me I was shocked, they actually wanted to interview me for the role. I accepted, as you would, I mean I love football and this could be my chance into the game. I mean come on look at me, I'm not getting a playing career any time soon am I.
So I went to the interview and it all went quite well. With no experience at all in either playing football or being a football manager I have somehow managed to find myself sat in the managers office waiting for meetings with the board and my assistant manager.
This is unreal. Like I said I have no experience managing or playing any sport but this has happened. Maybe my business management degree was seen as a positive when applying for the role. I don't know, but anyway here I am at Weston-Super-Mare starting my new journey.
