Facebook Rolling News Feed

If any clubs have Facebook accounts, and you would like to incorporate this into your website as a rolling news feed, please let me know and I will provide you with the necessary HTML code.

League Management System For Internal Competitions

Macclesfield have been successfully using the Internal Competitions page of the League Management System this season to record the results of their 2 internal competitions - their Individual Championship and the Pomeroy Cup. This enables these games to be easily included for grading purposes.

Fenton will be also using it over the summer when they run their Club Championship.

If you don't want to include your competitions in the grading file sent to the ECF, but just want to record your results, that's fine as well.

If any other Clubs would like to do something similar then please let me know and I will assist you in setting it up.

League Wipeout

The snow took it's toll on this week's matches, with all of the fixtures at Alsager, Newcastle, Holmes Chapel and Cheddleton being postponed. Crewe were the only club to manage to host a match on Wednesday evening, against Alsager. Fenton probably wished that their match at Macclesfield on Monday HAD been postponed !! The Postponed Fixtures list is now looking alarmingly long, with 14 matches now outstanding at the time of writing.
