DRHC are a wonderful hockey club based near Tarporley in the heart of Cheshire. With teams spanning from youth teams to veterans and a very competitive 1st team, DRHC really do have something to offer everyone. With a club this size it was clear that a good website with results, fixtures and club news was vital to keep everyone informed of what is going on and thats where we were called in.
The brief for this site was fairly simple but with a couple of nice added features. The main site is to be informative so club members and prospective players can easily see what the club is all about. Additionally a feed for fixtures and results was required being fed from the NorthWest Hockey League site. This feed is live and so reflects the latest league position for each team in real time. With such an active club, an events plugin was also required to let everyone know what is on at the club at any time.
A bespoke design was developed which was then built around the exact requirements of the club including pages with the league table feeds coming in. Training was then given to a number of club members who are taking control of the site and ensuring the latest news is always added to the site.
This project was a particular joy for me as I played for the club (many years ago) and my two boys also played at the club and I have very happy memories of our time at the club.
