Hi all,

I will be joining League 3 Div 3 at the start of next season. I have played many football PBM's in the last 30 years but have only just discovered Summit.
The question I have is what one piece of advice would you give to a new player.
Thanks in advice
John S

Welcome John,

As a new manager myself, my key piece of advice to you would be to play the long game and spend your initial squad budget very wisely.

Hi John. Welcome to Summit! I'd consider taking a team now, with 3 games to go in the current season. It gives you a chance to sign a few players before the big kick off!
Any questions along the way don't hesitate to ask!

Silversprings Utd (1217) League 3. Season 1 - Trophy Winners. Season 2 - Premier & Cup Double Winners. Season 3 - Trophy Winners.
Cork City (1268) League 3
Tivoli Boro (1231) League 3

Darren, Thanks for this but I am in it for the long haul and really like the idea of starting off with a just promoted team from the non league. So I will watch from the sidelines for a few weeks but I can't wait for the new season to start.

Darren is correct here. You really could pick up a bargain or 2, especially a good young player.

Good luck for next season, anyway.

I get where your coming from. Next season won't start for about a month or so. I'd take any random team to learn the ropes for a few turns. There's no point in trying to figure everything out on week one. You could then ask Steve to swap your team for a newly promoted side. Hopefully you'll be familiar with this things like the auction list and market prices etc. I like your approach though. The very best of luck with Summit. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Hi there and welcome to summit soccer. My advice would be to print a copy of the rules and get familiar to it. There are things in there you already know but certain things you won’t. So have a good look at it.
Also there is another site run by our legend that is Paul collyer. His site has all sorts of facts and figures and is really worth a look. Can’t off hand tell you the link, maybe someone else can give you that.
Most of all enjoy it, it is a game after all!!!!!!
