The 1999-2000 season started for me taking control of English Conference side Telford United. Looking at the initial squad I could see that recruitment would be needed however their where one or two gems that I knew I had to keep hold of. As a semi-professional side I went about offering full-time contracts to all the players thus ensuring they would be training everyday but also for those I intended to sell it would push there value up a little more.

SQUAD.

TRANSFERS.

With a mere £6,000 in the bank there was no chance of purchasing players so it would have to be free transfer recruitments this summer. I didn't want to let any of my better talent leave so accepted that recruitment would purely be free and the odd loanee if possible. Five players left the club this season and forward Andy Mutch decided he would retire at the end of the season making this promotion season his swansong.

THE SEASON.

We adopted a standard 4-4-2 attacking formation this season and very successful it was too, winning the league by March and going on to secure the F.A Trophy in my first season. I was rather disappointed with the early exit from both the F.A Cup and Conference Cup, second round in each. Picking up the Manager of the Year award along with six manager of the month awards along the way though was a great achievement. Defender Carl MacAuley was named in the Conference Team of the Season. Spanish striker Onesimo was voted supporters player of the year.

FINANCES.

We started the season with a mere £6,000 in the bank and during the season ran up debts in excess of £200,000 due to player wages. The board of directors had to invest £250,000 to keep the club running, by the end of the season with the success we had the bank balance was a little more healthier standing at £119,697. However I am expecting the club to have to invest heavily in stadium improvements before the new season begins which could mean going into the football league with no money to spend on players unless I allow one or two of my best players leave. Though I won't be short of offers as players like defender Jim Bentley and strikers Onesimo and Torvaldur Makan already attracting interest from clubs such as Stoke City and Manchester City.
