Got the message from the board "Attain a respectable league position"
A hard job for a person playing CM for the first time in his life.
Especially for me with a divsion 3 club with only £9,000 pounds to
After 3 matches and 22nd in the league i decided to make my first signing
Jamie Pace from Carshalton in the non - league.
On his debut he scored and setup 2 goals (MY FIRST WIN OF THE SEASON!)
2 weeks further and thanks to the sale of Wayne O' Sullivan to Reading i
had enough money to splash out on 2 new players - Carl Laurie from
Northwitch Victoria a $50,000 bargain and Mark Tyler of
Peterbrough for £150,000.
All my signings stayed ever present for the rest of the season.
About half the season in I was given a vote of confidence from the board
which was surprising as i was 10th in the league and only 6 points away form the playoffs.
At that point my league record was
played 20 won 11 drawn 2 and lost 8.
I had made one new signing for Plymouth from local rivals Torquay.
He was Kevin Hill a specialist free kick taker for only £40,000.
during his season he scored 9 goals in 18 games for Plymouth.
End of the season arrives and i was seating comfortably at 6th position in
division 3, having already gaining a playoff place i decided to splash out
£35,000 on Mark Sale from Rushen and Diamonds but i wish i hadn't.
