Hackney Wick FC – 2029/30 Season Review

Here we are! The Premier League! After only fourteen seasons we’ve climbed from the twelfth tier to the summit. I predict a difficult season having to juggle a European campaign in the Europa League as well as our Premier League and domestic cup obligations, but we have a good young squad and with the right additions I think staying up should be a very realistic goal, as well as reaching the group stage of the Europa League. I won’t be placing much emphasis on the FA Cup nor the EFL cup this season, especially if we go anywhere in Europe – we just don’t have the squad depth.

Hackney Wick FC – 2027/28 Season Review

We’re one promotion away from the promised land, though it’s probably going to be the hardest one to achieve – the Championship is widely regarded to be the toughest second division in the world. We’ll be playing teams where one of their players can earn more in a week than we pay the entire squad in a month. Our reputation is still somewhere around that of a decent League Two side, so attracting players of the required calibre will be extremely difficult. We’ll have to rely on our young squad hopefully developing faster with the higher standard of football on offer…

Hackney Wick FC – 2026/27 Season Review

This is our tenth season, and we’ve come much further than I anticipated in that time. From the twelfth tier to the third. It’s been an incredible journey, and one that has still really only just begun.

Expectations

  • Avoid Relegation from League One
  • Reach the FA Cup Third Round
  • Reach EFL Cup First Round
  • Qualify from EFL Trophy Group Stage
