    Inspired by the well put together review of Division 1, I've decided to give a little review of my own Division 5's first turn. Hope you like, and bare in mind this is all new to me:
    Division 5, Turn 1 Review
    Clinical Kidderminster and Hyde take early control of the bottom tier after an exciting opening day.
    Match reports:
    Cambridge United 1 - 0 Southport
    Saltos scores early on in a tight affair as keeper Steer keeps out a threatening Southport front line to win man of the match.
    Grimsby Town 4 - 7 Hyde
    An eleven goal thriller at Blundell Park as Grimsby blunder a two goal lead to freescoring Hyde who go top. Grimsby's new boy Masek won man of the match.
    Barrow AFC 1 - 1 Lincoln City
    A rare draw sees a dominant Lincoln held by a resilient Barrow. Lincoln's goalscorer Mina wins man of the match.
    Tamworth 1 - 2 Aldershot
    One of the hot favourites, Aldershot, got off to a good start at The Lamb Ground as Brodic and man of the match Devitt saw off Tamworth in a game of few chances.
    Forest Green Rovers 1 - 1 Woking
    Rooney scores for Woking! No, not 'that' Rooney but John Rooney showed he has the striker's touch before the home-side replied through Brazilian Vieira.
    Kidderminster 5 - 3 Luton Town
    Another high scoring affair saw two of the big boys sharing eight goals between them. However, Kidderminster were just too good for the travelers and go second. Spurs loanee Coulibaly won man of the match.
    Wrexham 1 - 3 Ebbsfleet
    A convincing Ebbsfleet eased past Wrexham as debutant Nietfeld scored twice and keeper Thomas won man of the match.
    Gateshead 0 - 1 Hereford United
    Hereford piled on the pressure from the start and it eventually paid off when Di Mauro scored the winner on the hour mark and went on to win man of the match.
    Nuneaton Town 2 - 0 AFC Telford Town
    Nuneaton have been very active in the transfer market during pre-season and now have the benefit of a massive squad to choose from. A convincing display saw them comfortably beat Telford.
    Braintree Town 3 - 1 Dartford
    It took just 1 minute for Braintree to penetrate Lomb's goal and they went from there to score 2 more against a Dartford side who finished the game with ten men. Braintree's Symons won man of the match.
    Chester FC 2 - 1 Barnet
    Barnet were many people's favourites to win this division. However, they have taken an early set back after losing to a stylish Chester. Sakor scored the winner late on and a fantastic display from Boateng saw him win man of the match at the Deva Stadium.
    Macclesfield Town 0 - 2 Alfreton Town
    A young Alfreton side eased past managerless Macclesfield with their captain Bender scoring and winning man of the match.
    Adriano's Team of the Week:
    1. Alcock (Nuneaton Town)
    2. Bezruk (Chester FC)
    3. James (Nuneaton Town)
    4. Bender (Alfreton Town)
    5. Boateng (Chester FC)

    Whilst I'm at it, here's a preview for Division 5's next games...
    Division 5, Turn 41 Preview
    So we may have just finished Turn 1 but the lower divisions are back in action again tomorrow in what is known as 'Turn 41'.
    This could pose a problem for certain teams, as they have little time to correct their mistakes from before but if you've just come off the back of a win it gives you a fantastic opportunity to get some good form rolling in these early days.
    Featured Games:
    Nuneaton Town vs Hyde
    Two of the most convincing teams from turn 1 come head to head in what will surely be a big game with the probability of many goals.
    Adriano predicts: Home Win
    Barnet vs Ebbsfleet United
    Favourites Barnet need to recover fast from their opening day defeat but Ebbsfleet looked of high quality against Wrexham and so will likely pose a huge threat.
    Adriano predicts: Draw
    Chester FC vs Aldershot Town
    Two more strong contenders come head-to-head at this early stage. Expect some class after each side got two players in the team of the week on Saturday.
    Adriano predicts: Home Win
    Wrexham vs Grimsby Town
    Both sides need to recover after opening day defeats, but will they be able to gage their weaknesses from turn 1 in order to fix/improve them?
    Kidderminster Harriers vs Barrow AFC
    Kidderminster scored for fun on Saturday. However, they also looked weak at the back. Barrow may look to take advantage of this and go one better from their draw in Turn 1. Once again, expect goals.
    Adriano predicts: Away Win
    Other Games:
    AFC Telford United vs Cambridge United
    Adriano predicts: Away Win
    Dartford vs Hereford United
    Adriano predicts: Away Win
    Alfreton Town vs Luton Town
    Adriano predicts: Draw
    Macclesfield Town vs Woking
    Adriano predicts: Away Win
    Braintree Town vs Lincoln City
    Adriano predicts: Home Win
    Gateshead vs Southport
    Adriano predicts: Draw
    Forest Green Rovers vs Tamworth
    Adriano predicts: Home Win
    Good luck to everyone. A full division report will be posted Tuesday evening.

    Disaster for Grimsby in Season Opener
    If you had bet on a side scoring 4 goals yet ending up bottom of the GW, Grimsby would have supplied the goods for you after a disastrous yet entertaining first game of the season.
    Without their newly promoted captain Kadu and a few other key players, they were forced to start the likes of 67 rated Bradley Wood at the back. And somehow came from having a 2-0 lead to losing 7-4 to one of the hot favourites; Hyde.
    "I see a lot of excuses from other managers as to why they didn't win, there were no excuses for us today. Hyde were simply better and our defending was dismal. The only bonus is the four goals scored, however that means next to nothing having conceded 7." - Adriano.
    Grimsby's next game comes against Wrexham and Adriano's side must improve if they are to get a result, restore their dignity and generally compete in this Game World.

    An Overview of Grimsby
    Grimsby have been very low key with their signings and have avoided over-sepnding in doing so. Veteran defender Simon Ford was originally expected to be given the captain's armband, however it has been confirmed that it will be occupied by a much unlikelier candidate...
    Monteiro Kadu
    The 18 year old goalkeeper from Angola put in a starstudded performance in Grimsby's final pre-season encounter and was voted man of the match. Consequently, Adriano has given him he prime position ahead of the new campaign believing that he can bring consistency and leadership to his young side.
    Other signings for the Division 5 team are:
    Berk Yildiz
    Albert Rafetraniaina
    Beykan Simsek
    Oswal Alvarez
    Dominik Masek
    Jonathan Ferrante
    It has also been confirmed that a yet to be named defender is set to become their 7th signing soon.
    Adriano is new to highly competitive GWs such as this and found his way here through joining 7777 a few weeks ago and so it's hard to tell how he might get on.
    They begin their campaign tonight against one of the league's favourites; Hyde.

    Hello,
    I've just joined the forum so I thought I'd just introduce myself to a GW that is also very new. I'm the Grimsby manager down in Division 5. I've noticed my odds on winning the title are 12/1 by the way, just if anyone fancies a bit of a risky bet.
    Good luck to everyone for the opening games and then the season. Let's make it special!

    I guess if interest is quite low in Division 5, I could try and take it on. However, I will likely need someone else to split the load with as I have pretty much just joined the forum.
