ICA Sports FC Vice Chairman Steve Purnell believes having a credible club website is a crucial shop window to attract new members, players, volunteers and officials.
“When someone accesses our Pitchero website, we have to make sure it looks like we’re a professional club and we take kids football seriously.”
For Alan Nadin, Webmaster at Mossley Juniors FC, securely managing the flow of data is one less job to think about, thanks to Pitchero:
“As a club, we’ll have all of our digital records protected and everyone’s on board. All the trustees are convinced that it’s the most secure, modern way forward.”
A sports club website has to fulfil many functions. Matt Jones, a committee member of Sutton Coldfield Hockey Club, explains their decision:
"For a club of our size, it had to be scalable; offering flexibility, visibility and accessibility were important too. We needed something secure as well as easy-to-use and Pitchero ticked all of those boxes."
There’s a clear advantage to being more streamlined and using less providers for apps, websites and running club sport. Michelle Dux is Treasurer at Bury Rangers FC:
“I would recommend Pitchero to anyone. I use the Manager App for prompts and find the game and squad management very good.”
There will always be questions with any website platform and with Pitchero, there’s fast and efficient help to guide you. Here’s Karen Ratcliffe, Webmaster of Selby RUFC:
“Go for it. Do it. Get as much as you can from Pitchero. I’ve got great support from our Account Manager. I can call him and he’ll answer my questions straight away.”
Willoughby Cricket Club’s Press Officer Karl Quinney has found team management a particular asset:
“The team selection and availability functionality really is invaluable. I’ve been a captain in the past and we’ve tried everything from texts to Whatsapp but now we can see weeks in advance for who’ll be available.”
