Jonastown United are a professional football club hailing from Jonastown, Queer Poco el Mono Ara. One of the largest clubs from North Queer Poco, Jonastown share a rivalry with Ridgemont Town. Established in 1927, Jonastown were one of the last teams to join the QPMAFA, having only turned professional in 1960. Rising quickly through the amateur and lower leagues Jonastown established themselves as a regular name amongst the Queer Poco football elite. However, before the inception of the Una Serie they found themselves with monetary problems and had to sell their better players. Mukhtar Salimi took over as chairman and managed to refinance J Town's debt and keep the team afloat. The new look team made major inroads and a year after the inaugural Una Serie Jonastown were promoted and replaced Villa Ortiz.
Their first season in the league was difficult, despite signing a number of players to aid in their survival and Jonastown relied on a final day victory to secure their position in the Una Serie for a second season at the expense of Barbossa.
Ricky Ortega, Progress and Such Stuff
Ortega was the man in charge as Jonastown United won promotion to the Una Serie, the first team to do so, replacing Villa Ortiz, who were the first team to be relegated from the newly christened Una Serie. Ortega's men edged out Belle-Isle on Sea by only three points, with promotion secured on the final day of the season.
Despite spending serious cash upon promotion, Jonastown narrowly avoided a relegation disaster and only the slim margin of 2 points kept J-Town in the league at the demise of Barbossa. Their final day victory over Port Los Renato proved enough for Ortega's men.
The following season, Ortega made few changes to his squad, however went with the decision to name Sargossan Javier Vilche as captain. With the defender as captain, and the players having spent a year becoming accumstomed to one another, J-Town melded into a cohesive team. Under the guidance of Ortega the Northerners managed to finish 7th, making progress on the previous season's 11th place finish.
This feat was followed by finishing 6th the following season falling just short of a Globe Cup spot. Manager Ortega had spent well bringing in Cafundelese players Edielson and Rildo who added competition for places. The backbone of J-Town's success and shift up the league was their tight defense, which included captain Vilche, Cafundue player Edielson and Ousmane Kaka whose performances for the league side had been rewarded with a call up for the Queer Poco national team. Jonastown's steady rise up through the ranks was rewarded with a place at the 4th Prince's Shield tournament, joining league champions Royal and replacing Pythons, who, after losing the league title to Royal were not invited to take part. This acted as a catalyst as Jonastown began to believe they had established themselves amongst the Una Serie regulars and would not become on of the yo-yo teams suffering the constant grind of relegation and promotion.
Their 5th season would become their most successful to date as the side finished 4th, a single point behind Augustus in third. This achievment lead to the title of "Best Team Ever Promoted" to be bestowed upon Jonastown who had gone from avoiding relegation by a single point to finishing within a point of third place. Once again the team's strong defensive capabilities were the key to their league success with only Champions Royal Khaldoon and Skyte City conceeding less goals.
Una Serie VI marked a decade since Ricky Ortega (once the youngest manager in the Pocoan league system) had taken charge of Jonastown - making him the second longest serving manager in the Una Serie - behind Mark Sloan at Pythons. The team continued to maintain their good form and finished 5th, again behind Augustus.
Season VII would prove to be Ricky Ortega's last in charge of Jonastown. After their 5th place finish everyone was looking forward to the side pushing on and making further progress, however the retirement of captain Javier Vilche (who would go on to manage Una Serie side Salaga F.C) and their involvement in the international club competitions would take their toll on J-Town. The side struggled for form all season and subsequently lost more than they won. This would see the team drop 3 places in the league and finish 8th. One beacon of light however was their tremendous run in the Trofeo Royal where the side met 4 Una Serie teams on their journey to second place. They would be forced to overcome Skyte City 2-1 in the third round. Defeat Pythons by a single penalty in the quarter finals and drub Valengren Kickers 5-1 away from home to reach the final. They would then go on to face the previous season's runners up Royal Khaldoon and would take part in an epic 3-3 match which came to an abrupt end ten minutes into extra time when Royal midfielder Jordi found the net and ended the the team's dreams of a first title since winning the League I title.
The final defeat would by Ortega's last salute as he stepped down as manager of Jonastown to take over at Skyte City. Without Ortega, the side would however return to the Globe Cup after the defeat in the final.
The former Royal Khaldoon man was placed in charge after long term coach Ricky Ortega moved to Skyte City. His first season in charge proved a disaster as J-Town could only manage an 11th place finish. The second season was equally poor as the team finished an underwhelming 9th, picking up 53 points. J-Town finished above Salaga, 1860 Flumineiro and the relegated Villa Ortiz. The biggest disappointment of the season came as the team were knocked out of the Trofeo Royal to New Boys Royceton in a terrible performance.
