Former name: Halifax Town A.F.C.Ground: The Shay

The Objective for this rise to fame, is to take FC Halifax from the Blue Square North to the Premier League, and once there try to achieve becoming the first on the hall of fame.
I will be updating this everyday with how I'm doing and will contain both video material and text with pictures depending which you would rather see. (Please note the video content will be more detailed and sometimes I won't have time to do loads of pictures). My plan is to do the first few seasons very quickly and then to have more updates in the higher leagues.

(Please Note i sort the pictures out further down in this story)



Squad Report, alot to work with but a lot of wasted space in my eyes to.




Going to basics, just going to play a 4-4-2 and hopefully it will do the trick.




Some very good signings and got rid of most the youth as a lot of them had no potential at all so at the moment the squad is very small and getting back ups will be something i need to focus on.

Seddon and Rainford have been on fire! But unfortunately our form for the last couple of games have been going down, so hopefully we can pick back up again. Surprising how hard it is with such a low team, frustrating to see how many mistakes your team makes but I am confident we will get promoted. Tactics have been up and down to so will have to find a tactic and stick with it. If you have any tips please post and if you want me to show anything els. Next update will probably be the 30 game mark, but we will see, like I said I will make sure this will be updated daily.

New Tactic

So 12 games left, next update will include the final 12 games and youth intake. If we do get promoted a lot of players will be leaving and my plan is to reshape the squad. The new tactic seems to be doing the trick but we will see.

No one that good and no one really worth showing, some will be good back up players but other then that quite poor. Still going through the games today so the next update could be out later tonight.

Key players were Seddon and Rainford but the squad did very well together. Now my plan is to reshape the squad and get it ready for the blue square bet premier. It might of looked like we won the league easily but we were only just winning games. Next update will be the pre season.

Not going bad, glad that we are in the playoffs and only 3 points away from second. But looks like Luton will win the league easily but things might change. Wouldn't say we have any key players, the team is just working well together and grinding out results.

Things aren't going to bad, hopefully we might be able to sneak in the playoff places but we will see. Still in the FA Trophy so we might get a cup run, but the draws we have been getting have been quite tough. We really need a class striker next season to get promote or to stay up if we get promote this season, however a good defensive midfielder wouldn't be bad aswell.

(Live com of 2nd leg and all the goals)

Playoff Semi Finals!




Very tough game, very even. Leon Osborne scored an amazing goal dribbling pass about 4 players then finishing well. Was very please with the result in the end, we were the underdog and I knew if we had the slightest chance we would of had to win at home.

2nd Leg




So shocked that we actually pulled this out of the bag, looking at the stats we were dominated but we took our chances and that whats counts. Rainford scored a brilliant goal aswell making me think if i should renew his contract or not.

Stay tuned play off final very soon
