We will be using the default database the idea that I seen by Wynne from Youtube about only buying Regens aka Youth Intake so that is all I will be using for signing players in this game. I want to become the first Canadian to make his name known in the England league in FM15 save.
 
Just a bit of history of myself
 
Growing up in Hamilton, Ontario Canada I was a huge hockey fan and after completing the SWMM scouting and GM course I knew what it would take to run a successful franchise. However there was no shot in becoming a team manager in hockey unless you had your foot in the door or basically knew someone. Like the saying goes it’s not what you know it’s who you know. So I decided to take my management skills and apply them to a soccer team. So here I am sitting in my Hamilton apartment as i just finished my smww hockey gm and scouting course I have decided to give up my hockey dream and begin my soccer manager team. After a poor past couple of seasons it was known in the media that the Guiseley FC has recently fired their Manager and has begun their search for their new manager in hopes to change the franchise around and build their club. As I look at the possible ideas to help change the club I would decide to fax my resume to the ownership of Guiseley FC and after a few interviews as a canadate for the manager position I got a few phone calls later to find out that out of all of the managers that they interviewed i was the best one for the job so now I have been named as the new Guiseley FC Team Manager.
 
As far as nations database goes I have selected the following countries
 
2015-08-22_00040_zpsmz1qyexa.jpg
 
We will be using England’s start date to begin our save
 
I have also decided to go with Canada as my 1st nationality as that was where i was born and Dutch as my second nationality as I have Dutch and Italy as my other nationalites.
 
I have decided to go in the middle at the Managerial style (National B License and Sunder League Footballer both based on Guiseley bages)

July 8th
 
My contract is a 1 yr deal until June 2015 worth 700 p/w
 
We were give a wage budget of $7k per week and $0 transfer budget
 
We have one loaned player which is Shane Killock who is on loan with us until May 2nd 2015
 
We also have an injury in our club:
 
D – Ryan Toulson (damaged cruciate) – out 4 weeks to 2 months
 
I have approached the board about increasing the junior coaching budget as we are building our clubs within our youth intake and regions once we get higher up in the league.
 
After looking through all of the staff I have decided to fire the following members:

Chief Scout: Graham Angus
 
2015-08-22_00030_zpsvcpqmdo9.jpg
 
Assistant Manager – Danny Boshell (We have decided to fire him because with him being player/manager we hired a better manager and he couldn’t take just a player position so we decided to let him go)

We have scheduled 9 pre-season friendly games only because we have 2 tactics we want to try out with our club and during the pre-season friendly schedule each tactic , so each tactic will get 4-5 friendly games to see how well our club reacts to them or as some would say a week.
 
The pre-season schedule so far for the 3 clubs (Main/U21/U18):
 
Main:
 
July 12th vs. Bradford
July 16th vs. Queen of Sth
July 19th vs. Leeds

July 29th vs. Wolves U18
 
July 13th
 
Our main squad has a friendly today against Bradford from League 1, our squad lost 3-1, Gavin Rothery scored the lone goal.
 
July 14th
 
Our U21 squad has a friendly against Walsall U21, the game finished in a 1-1 draw, Luke Porritt scored the lone goal.

July 16th
 
Our main squad has a friendly game at home against Queen of Sth. Our main squad won by a score of 2-0, Andy Holdsworth and Alex Johnson scored the goals.
 
So we will only be able to sign youth intake players and get players on loan from our parent club Leeds or any parent clubs we have in the future is the only rule I will have for bringing in players.
 
July 19th

July 25th
 
Our U18 has a friendly game against Port Vale U18, our U18 lost by a score of 1-0.
 
Barrow has been made the favourite 8-1 to gain promotion from the VCN this season. The rest of the main contenders are priced at:
 
33-1 Oxford City, 33-1 Harrogate, 40-1 Tamworth, 40-1 Guiseley, 40-1 Hyde
 
Having priced your team at 40-1, the bookmakers obviously believe that you are one of a number of teams in with a serious chance of promotion. They feel that as long as you perform to your capabilities there is no reason why you shouldn’t be in a promotion spot come the end of the season.
 
July 26th
 
Our main squad has a friendly against Brigg, we drew a 1-1 draw against Brigg. Alex Johnson scored the lone goal and Gavin Rothery missed the penalty shot.

July 30th
 
Our U18 squad has scheduled two more friendly games on August 7th against Norwich U18 at home and against Crewe U18 before they open the regular season on the 16th of August against Lowestoft.
 
Our main squad has a friendly against Bamber Bridge on our home pitch. Our main squad won by a score of 2-1, Gavin Rothery and Adam Boyes scored the goals.
