There's a number of websites which allow you to create a website for your team & they have ready built pages where you can record fixtures, results, player Stats etc. Some are free, & some require a small annual subscription. Some examples :

http://www.clubwebsite.co.uk/community/tour/club/
http://www.webteams.co.uk/

I'll ask my OH later if he knows any others that our local league teams use & you can have a look & see if one suits. :thumbsup:

I reckon your best bet would be to sign up for a Blogspot account. As a random example of what a blogspot blog can look like, clicky here. It shouldn't take more than fifteen minutes to register an account and get the format all set up, although adding content will take as long as you take to write it up. The neat advantages of doing it this way are that it's free, it's easy, you can create a new article for each new fixture and needn't trouble yourself with editing static webpages and re-uploading them, and, I think, it's possible for supporters and players to follow the team's progress via RSS feed to their browser if you use Blogspot.

i run a sports club and we just built our own website using Joomla. Quite easy to use and you end up learning alot. Have a look at our site if you want [url]www.masoominsports.co.uk[/url] and feel free to steal ideas!!!

Joomla & other content management systems will do what you want well.
But they do have a steep learning curve if you want to customize it.
Though you could always get a ready made template to suit your needs.

I once used [url]www.smallbusiness.officelive.com/[/url] to play around with a website, it was free and pretty easy to get going.

Joomla would be pretty good for what you want, but i'd suggest that you get someone else to set it up for you the way you want it.

Edit: As an example of what joomla can do for you, have a look at this website: http://www.ardsyouth.co.uk/

wulshaz, I've had a word with mu OH & the two I linked to are the ones he's recommended. The first one is totally free & the second one is about £15 a year, but they'll both do all the things you need for your football team thumbsup:

If you are not proficient in HTML and actually need something setup and not bothered about too much customisation, the second one looks pretty good IMHO. Cant think of too much more you might need - and you can always buy a domain name "your-club.co.uk" and point it directly to site (so you wouldnt need to remember a dodgy domain link and can go straight there.)

grass roots footy... its where Michael Owen start out....









and it is where he currently is to this day! :oops:

if you need access then I cant help.. nevermind... just have a look at sites OP have suggested
banned#14
depending on how deep you wanna go, bt imo, surely its less hassle if you dont have control of it, but just let the OP know as/when you want updates.

personally i would just email/call the OP and say/ask if he/she can add something to the site. Most sites aren't updated every day, maybe once or twice a week at most. :thumbsup:
