Our second season in Aswijan ended with the unbelievable achievement of Zagora Athletik securing promotion from Liga Principale at the first time of asking. And that meant we would be competing in the top tier of Aswijani football, Liga Regale, in 2021/22.
With 6 games remaining in our first season in Liga Principale, Zagora Athletik sit in 4th place and in the middle of a tight battle for the final two playoff places. And things were about to get a bit crazy.
Zagora Athletik had made an unexpectedly strong start to their first season in Aswijan's second tier, Liga Principale. Ten games in and we were way up in third in the league!
Zagora Athletik's unexpected first season success took the club into the second tier of Aswijani football. A decent amount of rebuilding was required but nothing too major as I kept faith in the players that had earned us promotion.
Life in Aswijan is off to a surprisingly good start. Trebor Mahtal was even able to reward the Zagora Athletik boys with a trip into the luscious delights of the Marinna Rainforest that surrounds us in the state of Elisha.
The first two months of life in Aswijan saw us get acquainted with Zagora Athletik and, eventually, settle into a formation and style that suited our players. And the relentless schedule of playing every Wednesday and Saturday was set to continue for a considerable time to come, which would eventually take its toll.
