First season and first friendlies are in the books. A mixed bag. Losses when we don't play a 5-1-2-2 WB and wins, including a big win over League One Lincoln, when we do. I think I found a formation for the season. Injuries, since I've only got three first-team center backs, may dictate some changes along the way.
A solild first place. Playoffs is pretty much guaranteed and promotion is all but certain. Can we hold off the rest of the league and claim the title?
Center forward Ryan Edmondson has been a goal-scoring machine for us this season. He leads League Two in scoring and has 22 goals in all competitions. In the midfield, Ben Stevenson continues to be the engine which drives us forward with eight goals and six assists. We've had some rest/injury problems in the midfield which caused me to call up Noah Chilvers from the U23 team and he fit right in. Playing primarily in the advanced playmaker position, he has two goals in six appearances. Right back Ryan Jackson has slipped a little bit over these two months but his slack offensively has been picked up by right forward Courtney Senior. Senior had a strong two months. He is now second on the team with nine goals and second with five assists (though we do have three players who have six assists).
