    Shocking news as FA announces that a team will be brought in to Blue Square Premier League, replacing a team that has announced plans of closure



    Friday 20th January 2012


    The Football Association have announced that a team that plans closure at the end of the season will be replaced by a new team, apart of the governing bodies new intuitive of gaining small towns and cities a chance to get an opportunity to have a taste of the English game, saying that 'influencing the youth and the spectators of the sport to the lowest populised areas' to garner the traditional 'beauty' of the game and for communities to grow from the financial gain of having a local professional football team.

    Head of the 'Small Fish, Big Pond' project, Mark Grayson, has described the thought behind the shocking decision, that they hope will help gain a positive look for the sport in the long run.

    "When we look at England, a lot of people see the larger cities and forget the historically-rich small towns that are in the shadows of the glam and glory of the large marketed cities, such as London, Manchester, Birmingham - we want to allow one small town has a say with this glorious opportunity to make their mark on the sport that the nation loves!"

    As to the sudden revelation, Grayson, forty-five adds: "Even though it might seem to be quite a rushed decision, we have been discussing the outline of the project for many months, after the club - whom want to remain anonymous at this moment at time - called for the end of their club, and we negotiated a term deal which we believe will be beneficial!"

    Among the opportunity to be slotted into the hierarchy of the football structure, the chosen club will have to be faced with numerous obligations to ensure that the project of a small club entering the league to represent a small town, won't be hindered by a sense of corruption - the Grayson outlines as: "We will allow the club to have a foreign benefactor financial, but they won't be allowed to finance any transfers during the first two seasons - solely relying on the players that can be found within the club's means."

    The project has been meant with a lot of controversy as many say that the advantage of the club starting in the Blue Square Premier League is against what the league structure represents, Grayson disregards the 'unsportsmanlike' that some say it represents from the FA.

    "We have considered this as an exception, but do understand the frustration of the other clubs in the league. But this is a project that will financially help the chosen town's economy, allow another club to fight for establishment and a bit more excitement to a league that has been looked down upon for too long!"

    Applications for the new available slot have started since this morning, with more then 5000 possible destinations for the new club: which Grayson says is one example of the added layer of excitement and tension within the project's incarnation - adding that there would be more along the way.

    Tamworth announces closure as a competitive team, as FA announces new team will be chosen in next week!



    Tuesday 21st February 2012

    Tamworth FC have announced the decision that they will expell themselves from professional competitive football at the end of the current season, after nearing their 80th year anniversary. Chairman Bob Andrews addressed via the club's website:

    “After tasting success in 2009 with the promotion into the Blue Square Premier League, due to financial problems, Tamworth FC will cease to exist within the league structure. While we still want to maintain the club as a source of worth for the local community, myself and the board accept that the ultimate decision to coexist within the terms of the lower league will be more beneficial with the stronghold and will of the club at the current moment.

    After being around for 79 years old, the club has become a beacon of the towns support and caring for one another in become regular spectators, we wish to thank the players and staff for understanding our reasons, and wish the best for the new team in hope that they can establish themselves a longful history such as Tamworth Football Club.”

    Along side the news of Tamworths enclosure at the end of the season, the FA have also announced that they have already chosen the team that will replace them come the end of the season, with all the facilities already built and a large financial backer to help ensure the club will be eager to become apart of the Blue Square Premier League. Head Of the Project, Mark Grayson, said: “After negotiating more than 100 different proposals and applications in the last month, we have finally came to the conclusion of one club that has met the merits we want, and have made clear of the ambition towards the future. We hope to seal the deal in the next week, and announce it as soon as both the club and the FA board are hundred percent behind the decision, without any hesitation!”

    Newark Athletic Announced as New Team – Literally!




    Thursday 1st March 2012


    Shocking news have emerged in a press conference in which FA director Mark Grayson announced that the team set to replace Tamworth next season will be a non-existent team based in the market town Newark-on-Trent in Nottingham-shire. The news came out as the local council announce that the new stadium, or athletic facility will be the home of the new Blue Square Premier League side.

    Grayson, who hasn't shied from the controversy surrounding the FA over murmurs of corruption within the governing body, and has stood in favour of the new team – Newark Athletic Football Club. “We wanted to establish a new beginning and a new era for a small town to gather and support – which we will accomplish by letting Newark Athletic become the latest team to be established in England, and to be introduced into the Conference division!”

    Rumors that the whole project was to only to get the FA to get a payday, after reports named Russian billionaire Yermolai Relikovic, who is the owner of Russian Media corporation Boltsky Industries, who are also been reported with a lot of shady involvements including the Russian Mafia and possible connection of the original owner Andrei Boltsky's disappearance. But Grayson has come into defense for the 51-year-old, citing his successful business skills and ambitions to be key factors in the boards decision.

    “We were enticed by the ambitions of Mr Relikovic, who has seen the success of his close friend, Chelsea Owner, Mr Ambramovich and wishes to seek the same level of success but from scratch. He is a hard working individual, and deserves all the success he has made in his home country, and hopes to replicate that with success in the footballing world!”

    Mr Relikovic will be joined by fellow Boltsky board members as Toshio Minamoto and Yasha Chekhov, and has already bought the rights of the 11,825 seated stadium on the verge of Newark, which also has under-heated pitch and a retractable roof – making it the largest stadium in the English Conference come next season. The naming rights have also been bought, with the stadium to be called 'Boltsky Stadium', and has already got a short-list of possible managerial candidates for the future.
    “Mr Relikovic has worked hard with his team, in making sure that the club is the best in every single way – and has already got a shortlist of managers he wants to possibly join the club. He also acknowledges that he won't be able to buy any players in his first two season at Boltsky Stadium, insistent on making sure the club adhere to signing young potential players to make their way into the footballing career.”


    The Badge for Newark Athletic FC

    The football logo, as shown as above, was reportedly created by students at the local Newark College, and represents certain aspects of the club's image as well as the towns history. There have also been rumors of a kit colored Red and White for the home kit, and a Red and Black kit for the away kit – even though at this point it is all talk.

    “The club has been ready for a long while to be established, but Mr Relikovic wished to wait for a time he could perfectly introduce his long waited project to be set off.”
    As the football is still shaking from the volcanic news, how much more could be possible in the next stage for this unusual chapter? Only time can tell!

    I thought it was going to be Bath, although I'm pretty sure that's a city.

    or Chelmsford, you don't get more historical than the former Roman capital city. Mind you they both have a football team already

    Nice start, AM RC for me eh?

    Why did the FA choose Newark Athletic over the 100 other applicants they negotiated with?



    Friday 2nd March 2012

    IT was a complete shocking news when the FA announced the introduction of a new team in the English Conference, after the news that Tamworth FC was closing at the end of the season. But what came even more shockingly is the 'project', that the FA Board started surrounding the replacement, which has been called the 'Small Fish, Big Pond' in which they are looking for a small historic town WITHOUT a major football club, which will benefit from the financial gain comes along with a professional club.
    So the team that was chosen, after discussions lasting just a month, was Newark Athletic, a new team that is backed by Russian Billionaire Yermolai Relikovic. Is the real reason that the club was chosen was due to a bribe coming in the way of the billions of money by the Russian media mogul? Or was there an actual simple reason they chose Newark-on-Trent?

    To understand the real reasons, the Daily Mail has decided to look into both Newark-on-Trent's history, and Russian Yermolai Relikovic.


    The Newark Castle: Heart of tourism for the small town

    Newark-on-Trent is a small market town in the East Midlands, with an estimated population of 26,330 and a large number of outer-towns which could be accounted as supporters. It is in location of Grantham, Nottingham, Lincoln, Mansfield and has a train rail connected to the East Coast Main Rail lane, which commits all the way to London.

    The history of Newark is connected well with English periods, with the thriving wool and cloth trade at the center of the town during the reign of Henry II, where King John died at the Newark Castle, and when during the establishment of the Church of England, the Newark vicar was executed for refusing to acknowledge the king as head of church. Newark is also lied upon the important Roman road, the Fosse Way, making the origins of the town possibly Roman.
    But the biggest role in the nations history is the effect the town had in the English civil war, where King Charles the First stayed as the town's 600 soldiers held raids against larger cities and towns, with mixed results but establishing themselves as Fearless Warriors and going against the larger town, head-to-head no matter what. And even during the last stages of the civil war fought against the Parliament fearlessly, only surrendering under the command of the King.

    The recent claims to fame of Newark are The Wanted singer Jay McGuiness, footballer Patrick Bamford and actor Toby Kebbel, but maybe the new football club can unearth some footballing gems to become world class players?


    Newark Athletic Chairman Yermolai Relikovic

    But, as the town which has a rich history, the rich-man of Newark Athletic has a less then gleaming past, since his birth in 1961, Yermolai Relikovic has been an shady individual, with being an mafia contact during his teenage years, to become wealthy in over a year after selling poorly made stuffed cabbage bears. He has been connected with numerous Eastern Europe black market syndicates, and is said to have been a hit man for one of Russia's most corrupted presidents.

    But the most famous connection with him is the disappearance of Boltsky Industries inventor, Andrei Boltsky, after the company clinched an international deal with a Japanese internet company, which made the company a total income of at least £3.1 million. Even though the sudden disappearance was done so quickly after the deal was sealed, and Relikovic took charge, no-one has really been questioning about, or have they not been allowed to?

    Rumors are spread that Boltsky had gone insane after the stress of the deal was done, but had taken it's toll already on him, other rumors say that he wanted to live in the small city he came from and live in retirement in peace with the money earned from Relikovic's money. The truth is surrounded by speculation, but not been found our by fear of possible termination or torture.

    But in all, the town speaks the words that Mark Grayson said the FA wanted, plus with the financial backing of one of Russia's most secretive billionaires, it does allow the club an advantage shall they ever reach the promise land of the Premier League, which no English Conference club has done as of yet, but maybe that would be the task that enticed the Russian?

    Point of order, but have Luton Town not played in the Premier League ? (I've not checked, they might have been relegated the year it was founded.)

    Newark Athletic shock Supporters with both Kits and Shortlist of Managers!



    Monday 12th March 2012

    Shocks are still coming out from the Newark area as, the local new football team Newark Athletic release the images of the planned football kit for next season, as they prepare themselves for their debut season in their existence. The football kits, which were designed by German-manufactures Do You Football, show the colors of the club, the home shirt being a distinctive Red and White with white stripes diagonally drifting from the bottom of the shirt, whereas the away shirt is a plain black and white color scheme, showing a larger contrast between the two kits.


    Black and White: Away Kit

    But, what was more shocking was the announcement that the team would be sponsored by game developer and producers EA Games, which will host a games series for the next 3 years on the team shirts. The deal, which was estimated earnings of over £1.5 million, has caused upset by fans – saying that it was an ample decision to promote a local business on a national level and help the economy of the town. One person demonstrating against the deal was businessman Stuart Townsend, who runs a local chain of bakeries.


    Red Eyed: Home Kit

    “The fact the council allowed the building of the athletic stadium for the Olympic rush was stupid, and then to sell it to this Russian nobody is even more ridiculous! The fact is this club was established without any regard of us people in Newark, and will be promoting the town for the unseeable future – but instead of helping our community by advertising a small business within it's borders, the greed of commercialism has made so that the larger man gains the helping hand! Ridiculous, utterly ridiculous!”

    Amid the controversy of the chosen sponsors, a leak from the club allowed the fans also to see the name of the potential manager of the club, as the manager shortlist hit the internet. Concerning was the lack of names actually knowledgeable to anyone within England, as most names had experience with football in other leagues, or not any. The shortlist consisted of: Croatian twenty-five year old Niko Bergstrom – a manager who has experienced accomplishments with Finnish club HyPS, Belgium club THES Sport, but whose promising has been halted by personal issues interfereing causing him to face failure as relegation meant the sack for the youngest manager ever, another candidate is American Riley Bartley – who hasn't found much success but is known for his aggressive man-management style and out-spoken nature, one shocking candidate is Joel Power – who has reportedly manage a large number of small clubs throughout Europe but not staying long enough to find success despite being touted as a future managerial great with only his arrogance being the downfall at the age of twenty-eight this could be his chance to make a name for himself, and most unusual candidate is the chairman's son, twenty-five heir to the company, Anton Relikovic, who has to be said a striking image of the person his father, Yermolai, used to be at his age.


    Babe with Glasses: Club Representative Babe Cummings 'ensures' the club are right!

    In order to rectify the image of the club, a club representative, Babe Cummings, has spoken out for the club: “We want to ensure to the supporters that the Board and Chairman are only look for the best for the club in the long run. Mr Relikovic and the rest of the board, want to ensure that the club's future can be as glorious as possible, and have gathered managers that fit into the picture that will be able to respond to possible situations in a manner that will benefit the club, as we reach to ambitions set.”

    In response of the out-cry of the sponsors upon the shirts, the club representative responded: “The EA Games sponsorship is a financial dealing, that ensure the running of the club over the foreseeable future. Due to the costs which the club has to pay in order to start it's life in the English Conference, we had to choose the most financial viable option available – in order to ensure that the club will grow rather then being anchored down due to debts being unrepairable.”

    Is the club right? What is your thoughts about the scenario and who do you want as manager based upon the descriptions above – which we hope to gather more information in time!
