The Great British Challenge

  1. The Great British Challenge

    This is a challenge which is very simple in essence, but will be very hard to complete. The aim of this challenge is to win the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League (Not all in the same season though) with a team with players of British nationality only. That is fairly easy you might think, just start with Manchester City, but here is the catch, I will be starting with Worthing FC, my local club in the Isthimian League 1st Division South.

    I will be relying mostly upon my youth system, but I will also be signing some players.

    Can I make it all the way to the top? Or will I end up raging? Follow along to find out!

  3. I am attempting something very similar, but I am only using youth players, or players already at the club The Great Alvechurch Youth Challenge, i'm doing ok so far, but the games are mind-numbingly dull atm, and are usually settled by some fluky header from a cross

  4. Worthing FC appoint Rollinson

    Previous Clubs: Worthing Rebels, Durrington FC
    .Worthing FC chairman Dave Agnew has today announced the club has appointed Jordan Rollinson as their new manager.

    "I am absolutely delighted to be working here at my hometown club" Rollinson told the Worthing website.

    This is the young managers
    first venture into football management, and will be hoping he can get off to an excellent start to his career here.

    Agnew said he was "very impressed" with Rollinson's attitude, and feels he will take Worthing FC to the next level. "We have a very good team here, and now with Rollinson on board, I feel the club is at a very exciting stage in its history. From here, I am hoping we can push on, gain promotion, and soon become a recognized name in football." Worthing currently play in the Isthimian League 1st Divison South.

    British Players

    Worthing FC have also set a policy of only signing British players. "In a meeting with Jordan, we decided it was paramount to sign only British players. We both agreed this was very important, and is the correct way for the club to move forward."

  5. Squad Evaluation

    Coming into the squad, the first thing I notice which is very good is that all the players are English! This means I dont have to get rid of anyone which is a good thing.

    Next thing I notice is the standard of our attackers are of a quite good standard. Our best striker is Scott Tipper. He has good pace and finishing ability for the standard we are at now.

    ​One place we are seriously lacking though is in the centre of defense. I will be focusing my efforts on trying to find another centre back or two.

    There are also no real youth prospects at the club, so I am eagerly awaiting the youth intake next year!

  6. Worthing FC Sign Conteh

    Previous Clubs: Beckenham Town, Welling United

    Worthing FC have today announced the signing of young striker Quinton Conteh on a free transfer

    "It is a great delight for me to be here at Worthing FC. It is a club I will hopefully get my chance to show what I can do"

    Conteh started his career at Beckenham Town, but failed to make any first team appearances in his time there. He then moved onto Blue Square South side Welling United, but he also failed to make any first team appearances there. He will now hopefully get his chance though, as Rollinson said he was a "key player" in his team. Conteh will surely be relishing the chance to show what he can do.

    Regarding his move to Worthing FC, he told the Worthing Herald, "I am really happy to be here. The fans here are really good, and they seem excited to see me play. I have had a few injury problems in the past, but I feel I am over them now and im ready to contribute to the team."


    Rollinson said he was delighted to have Conteh on the team adding; "I was really impressed when he came down for a trial. He has pace and great finishing and heading ability. Im really looking forward to seeing what he can do"

  7. Good Pre-season

    The Great British Challenge-worthing-fc_-fixtures-schedule.png

    It was a very good pre-season for us, with us having a 100% win record. We proved to be fairly good in front of goal, and managed to score at least 2 goals per game. I hope that we can take this form into the league games and go for 1st place in the league.

    We have a media prediction of 4th, so I think that winning the division is within our reach, and with the players we have signed, I think it will be fairly easy to do.

    My aims for this season are:

    League: 2nd
    Cup: Quarter Finals

  8. Worthing FC sign Billy Jeffreys on Loan

    "I am pleased to come here on loan and help a club with great ambition such as Worthing. Im only here for a season, but if things go well, I could stay longer."

    Jeffreys started his career at Millwall, but he failed to make any first team appearances for them. He then moved on a free transfer to Ashford Town, where he made 86 appearances and scored 3 goals. He then moved to Hampton & Richmond and made 27 appearances and scored 1 goal.

    Rollinson said that he was pleased to get Jeffereys on loan, and hopes he can help sure up the back line. "I was very happy with his determination in training when he came. He always gives 100% to the cause, which is the type of player I appreciate."

    Rollinson was keep to add to his back line after admitting he was worried by the lack of quality in his centre backs.

  9. Excellent Start for Worthing FC

    Worthing FC Stats

    League Position: 1st

    Form: WWDW

    Points: 10

    Goals For: 11

    Goals Conceded: 5
    It has been an excellent start to the league campaign for Worthing FC with an unbeaten start to the season.

    Worthing have started their season in excellent form and have won three and drawn one in their opening four games.

    They have looked very good value for money, and have scored 11 goals in their opening games.

    This has been down very much to new signing Quinton Conteh who has scored 6 goals in 2 appearances and 2 sub appearances.

    They started the season with an away tie against Dulwich Hamlet with they came out comfortable 2-0 winners thanks to two very good goals from Conteh. Rollinson said he was "Delighted to get off to a winning start."

    In their first home game of the season, they welcomed Horsham FC, and they survived a scare to win 3-2. Rollinson was disappointed the team went 3-0 up, and by the end of the match the team was hanging on by the skin of their teeth. "I was unhappy at our defending. We should have won the game comfortably, but we certainly didnt do that."

    They then had another away trip to Whitstable Town, where they got a 1-1 draw. Worthing maybe had the right to be annoyed after Whitstable converted a questionable penalty.

    Then came their, and Conteh's best game of the month, a 5-2 beating of Crawley Down Gatwick. Conteh managed to get himself of the score sheet 4 times, and was delighted with the way he played. "I am really happy that I managed to get four goals. It was an excellent team effort, and im glad we got 3 points"

  10. Mixed Month for Worthing Leaves them 7th

    The Great British Challenge-worthing-fc_-fixtures-schedule-3.png

    Worthing FC Stats

    League Position: 7th

    Form: LLWLWD

    Points: 17

    Goals For: 18

    Goals Conceded: 14
    Worthing FC were unable to keep up their excellent form, and slump down to 7th position.

    It was a poor month by Rollinsons standards, with his team suffering 3 defeats, 1 draw and only managing 2 wins.

    Worthing FC started the month of with a 2-1 defeat at home to Merstham, followed by another 2-1 defeat away to Corinthian-Casuals.

    They then scrapped a 1-0 win away at Sittingbourne, with Scott Tipper grabbing the only goal of the game.

    Rollinson then decided to experiment with tactics against Herne Bay, which back fired massively and resulted in a 2-0 loss, the first game his team has failed to score in.

    The then improved in front of goal and beat Walton and Hersham FC 3-2. They still looked very dodgy at the back. After being 3-0 ahead, Rollinson one again said he was "worried" about his sides defense. The final game of the month saw them draw 1-1 against recently relegated Leatherhead.

    Worthing FC striker Conteh, who has failed to score is the last 4 games said, "We have had a poor month, and we have struggled at the back. In training we are working one it, and are hoping for a better showing next month."

    Elsewhere in the Isthimian League 1st Divison South, Tooting and Mitcham United are sitting on top of the table on 25 points, while Chipstead are languishing at the bottom on just 5 points.
