Russets Club News

Coming soon...

Marden Russets Hockey Club has been using Fixtures Live (FL) as the platform for its website for over a decade, but FL has recently been the target of M&A activity within the club management software market.  In the spring, FL was purchased by Teamer and, in early autumn, Teamer was itself purchased by Pitchero.
Russets have no choice other than to update the club's website and, more generally, the operational systems that had been established using the wider FL package.  Having begun migration to Teamer in summer 2018, elements of which will have come to your attention during the season (e.g. subscription payments), we are now redirecting our attention to migrate to Pitchero.
The good news is that, in most areas, Pitchero offers superior functionality to Teamer, as well as having a more modern look-and-feel than FL; the bad news is that it's a lot of work for a small number of volunteers, much of it replicating effort already expended on Teamer.
Please bear with us over the coming weeks as we make the operational transition from FL/Teamer to Pitchero, and keep an eye out for emails asking you to take action, for which we would greatly appreciate your early response.
During the migration, members' details will be moved onto Pitchero, so that we can continue to manage the club and its membership, and you will be asked to take responsibility for your own data once in place.
More on this in the new year; in the meantime, have a Merry Christmas, one and all, and we'll see you in 2019.
