Footballs Rising Stars
[Firstly I'd like to say I am currently playing NSS1 as I recently got a new PC and I'm having to wait for my NSS3 code to be emailed to me as I lost it and now can only do the ten game trial untill I get the code, so I thought to myself "lets go back to the old days." Now here is my career nicely presented in some form of tv scrip or something to that effect]
"Today on Footballs Rising Stars we look at the career so far of 18 year old Clayton Clive, he began his career at Morecambe, he came through the youth ranks after being spotted during a school tournament in Lancaster at the age of 14, Morecambe had to compete with local rivals Lancaster to sign the youngster, but Morecambe, being the more popular and sussessful side easily won the race to sign him. He rose thorugh the ranks quickly, and during the 2001-2002 season he played 22 game for the reseves, scoring 24 goals. This saw him sign a 3 year contract in June 2002 worth £1,080 per week. He made his first team debut in the first game of the season, he managed an assit but Morecambe lost 2-1 to Gravesend and Northfleet, Clive managed to keep his first team place and in the second game of the season he scored 2 goals in a 2-2 draw with Hereford. Morecambe then began to win whilst Clive went on scoring, on of the highlights was a thrilling 4-2 win away at Lancashire rivals Accrington in mid October, this put Morecambe second in the Conference. Clayton was catching the eyes of many big clubs at this point, people noted his ability to take on 4 or 5 players one after the other, and he got metioned on the regional news after scoring 5 goals in a 7-2 win at Farnborough Town. Morecambe's form continued till Christmas only losing 1 more game till then, on the 28th of December Morecambe's form came to an end with a 5-2 unexpected defeat at home to Gravesend and Northfleet who won them in the first game of the season, in an interview after the game Clive was asked why Morecambe lost and in his humorous and eccentric fashion responded by saying 'We lost because they scored more goals than us'. Which was the correct answer never the less. Morecambe then lost again suffering consecutive defeats for the first time during the season this lose was 3-2 away at Hereford. As expected by everyone Clayton left Morecambe on the 21st of Jan 2003 for a fee thought to be around 200,000, at this point Morecambe were sitting pretty at the top of the conference, and Clayton had scored 38 goals in 25 starts for Morecambe also managing 22 assits. The move to Middlesbrough was expected by all, the offer for Clayton was too good to refuse, and Morecambe fans were not happy by his move but knew it was going to happen and understood why. Middlesbrough at the time were sitting in 8th and Clayton looks set to make is debut possible this weekend. We will fill you in on how Clayton's move to Middlesbrough went at the end of the season. That is the end of Footballs Rising Stars tonight, and remember, don't have nightmers, don't eat cheese."
