Farmers on the storm is Croatian Hattrick football club, managed by SilverZG and founded in Zagreb on November 8, 2007 as Raiders on the storm. After the team owner decided that they should become farm for Croatian national team, the club changed its name on April 2, 2014.

Club history

2007 - 2013

The team was founded in Croatian season 19 (World season 34) and played in series VI.436 for 7 seasons, winning it twice, before being promoted to V.58.

In V.58 Raiders were very succesful, achieving #2 in season 24 and winning the series with maximum of 42 points in season 25, thus being promoted to IV.19, where they played an unsuccesful season, being relegated immediately. Raiders were relegated to V.12, where they won the title in season 29, but failed to qualificate to 4th division.

Next season, they finished at dissapointing 3rd place, and manager SilverZG almost decided to stop playing Hattrick. The club then struggled and was relegated back to lowest tier of Croatian Hattrick pyramid, in series VI.433. After coming back from brief semi-retirement, Silver bought a handful of good players and started playing passing, with young players in attacking positions and veterans in defence. This "revamped" Raiders team won back promotion to 5th tier after winning VI.433 with maximum amount of points and was promoted to V.138.

Raiders played in V.138 for 4 seasons, reaching one 4th and two 3rd places in the division before winning the title, the clubs third V division title in history.

The club played two very succesful seasons in IV.12, ending third on both occasions. Buring this time, it was training a lot of players, but most notably wingback Benjamin Ramljak. Ramljak played all 14 games in Croatian unsuccesful campaing (ending 3rd in the group) to reach U20 WC XX in [Italia|Italy]]. As Ramljak was amongst greatest talents in his generation, Raiders had two options - continue training him, but with suffering in results, or to sell him. SilverZG decided that the team will train Ramljak - and many other top Croatian prospects! - thus announcing selling of all other players besides Ramljak, making Olaf Erik Tomschitz, clubs' trusted captain, new long-term coach and deliberately losing all games in the league. On April 2, 2014, the club board decided that new era should be marked by new name, thus renaming the club 'Farmers on the storm'.

2014 - Present

In the first 4 seasons of farming, Farmers were very bad team, losing almost all games against human opponents and ending in qualifications in all of its seasons in V.205. In qualification game in season 43, Farmers failed to field a team, thus losing the match and being relegated in lowest divison again. But, around this time Ramljak came of age, even earning a few caps for Croatia National Team at the age of 25 and Farmers bought another top wingback prospect in the likes of Zoran Dobrila. The teams fortunes reversed, and the greatest era of success came. Farmers won VI.973 in season 44 and V.128 the next season, but lost qualifications match for IV. Next season ended with dissapointing 3rd place, but in season Farmers again won V.128, and this time defeated IV. league opponent, PoolSideLiver and won promotion to series IV.48.

In IV.48, Farmers enjoyed success, reaching 2nd place in debut season, and surprasingly winning the series title a season after, which earned them first ever promotion to Div. III! In first season in new division, III.15, Farmers again made good result against the odds, ending in 3rd spot. During this time, Dobrila and Ramljak (now National Team players with 50+ caps) were joined by two other Croatia national team players, wingback Vladimir Stipaničev and centre-back Leonardo Kršlović. At the begining of qualificating phase for World Cup XXVIII, Farmers on the storm has four players in Croatia national team roster.
