The survey showed that match reports, fixtures and the league tables were the most common reasons for visiting. So we have created new options on the front to allow easy access to these items in just one click. [Complete]
We have updated this section to allow you to see options to buy tickets (clickable) and to read the latest match reports (clickable). [Complete]
All matchday reports
There is also a new option that will take you to the news section that is pre-filtered for the mens and ladies match reports. [Complete]
The option to buy tickets online was introduced to reduce the requirement on those to carry cash on a match day - with no card facilities available to purchase a ticket on the gate. However with only a small selection of people currently using this on a regular basis we have reduced the prominence of the ticket purchase options. Although the ticket section will remain in the main. We will explore various options for encouraging ticket purchases only. [Complete]
*Social media feeds*
Social media feeds will not appear on the website itself, as the content produced for these channels will be best displayed on the various platforms. However key content will always be featured as a news item. These news items will be shared across the various social media platforms leading back to our site. We have clear and large icons on each page that will take you directly to the social media channels. [No action]
The News page has been updated and re-categorised following the inclusion of the Ladies team and the U18 Robins reports. [Complete]
The website draws in information from various sources in order to keep it as up to date as possible. So sometimes the customisation of the tables is limited (at this moment). To make things easier to find home games we have updated them to all be in CAPITALS. [Complete]
Red marker lines have been placed next to the upcoming fixture to make it easier to find the next fixture on the Mens and Womens page. [Complete]
Player statistics and other items will always update, we are looking to make the process faster, but we aren’t in a position to ensure these are up to date straight after the game on all occasions. [No action]

The App is being reviewed and being assessed about a potential revamp or replacement.
or whether there is a demand for an app. The decision has been made to shelve the App as it would need to be rebuilt and the updates to the existing App to ensure it is running correctly have been deemed too labour intensive. We would encourage users to remove the App from any devices and initially use the website and sign up to the new weekly newsletter to receive all updates. [Complete]
