Happy Birthday To Us!

February 19, 2006


Last Tuesday marked the first anniversary of www.bristolroversssc.co.uk a website of which all those associated with Bristol Rovers Supporters Club can be truly proud. (You’re a week late Mr Chairman, Ed!)

The site has developed in the last twelve months to become a major communication tool for our organisation. A trawl through the news archives will give any visitor a real insight into the work of Bristol Rovers Supporters Club.

My thanks to Ben Ede who has given us so much in terms of his technical expertise in helping us to develop the site. Thanks too to Communications Chairman Robin Schols whose drive and determination has taken this project forward. Thanks also to all those who have contributed articles throughout the last twelve months, they have made for some very entertaining reading!

Naturally, our thanks should also go to you, the readers too. We track numbers of visitors to the site and when the most popular times are for people to read. You may be surprised to learn we have regular visitors from over twenty countires around the world, and that we have in the region of 143,000 hits per month, with over 2000 unique users. These statistics make it all feel worthwhile and further features are currently being worked on as you read this.

Newly introduced this month is the Executive Committee gallery, which can be accessed by clicking on the committee tab on the home page. Via this page you can also visit the sub committee pages and read about their objectives to provide the best possible representation for you the members.

The site strives to bring you all information about Rovers from a fans point of view, as well as in co-operation with the football club, match pics and other hot off the press news.

As we continue to develop our communications strategy the website will be an integral part of it , long may its success continue.
