Excellent turn for Foxhall to end the year, A superb 3-1 away win at 2nd place Excelsior was followed up with a good 1-0 away to Tiger City, Game 3 gave us a straight forward 5-0 against an unmanaged side, Before ending the league turn was a tight 2-1 win over Maccas Ducks. Hits went to Payne 9+ and Smith 8 and it was nice to move on Bristol 6* without conceding a hit on him. We are hoping to bring in a YTS during the 2nd half of the season. Gained a narrow win over Nigels Muckamore 1-0 at home in the League Cup so tie still very much alive.
How did players get sold to unmanaged clubs this turn????

The inconsistent season continues with a great 3-0 away at Memphiss followed by 2 unimpressive draws against unmanaged sides and as Phil has mentioned a 2-1 away defeat to the champions elect .
With a view to next season a deal went through with Muckamore to secure the services of Ken McManaman (Mid 6*) , Steven Crikes (Def 7) and Paul Trade (Att 7+) . Going the other way was Socrates Otis .
Now having 19 outfield players the squad needs trimming but Ron Gripp and Oliver Moe retire next turn and they will be followed out the door by long serving duo Brad Chadwin and Noah Shasbat who will be released .
Going to be a long season I think as I try and get the magic 10 NSR 7s so could be some interesting formations thrown out by the Crispy Ducks.
