East Kilbride Football Club

East Kilbride Football Club

East Kilbride Football Club are a relatively new Football Club based in East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire, Scotland. They were born out of the previous clubs of Stewartfield FC and Jackton Boys Club. With strong beliefs on encouraging our youths, in East Kilbride, to enjoy and further their fitness and skills in a club where our coaches are trained to all the relevant standards.

The club has more than 20 teams and over 500 players. These range from under 10’s through all age groups up to adult. We also have a thriving Sunday Club for children with Additional Support Needs and an ever growing Girls Section with girls from age 10 to 15 years.

The new Club is based at K-Park in Calderglen Country Park and in due course the dream is to have the first ever professional club in East Kilbride and gain promotion to the SPFL via the Pyramid play-off pathway.

Objectives

  • Increase club awareness with an improved usable and accessible website
  • Fully responsive website
  • Admin system that gives staff full website autonomy.
  • Ability to maintain all content of the site via the CMS. Fixtures, Scorelines, Match Reports, Players Profiles, Sponsors, Club Staff and Club Shop 
  • Improve SEO performance and content marketing opportunities

Planning Stage

We worked closely with the Head of Communication at EKFC, Graeme Mullin, who helped us with what we needed (and when!) As we worked up the various new features of the site, Graeme was there to let us know he was happy with the way it was working. With everything we did we had a decent knowledge of the lowland league setup and how the league and cup fixtures work so we fell very easily into this project which helped a lot. 

Design & Build

We couldn’t wait to get our teeth into this project from a professional and personal point of view. There were lots of features built into this website mostly based around the fixtures and players.

We started out with the fixtures listings, which allowed the club to setup past and future games against all the other clubs in the league or cups. Games could be home or away fixtures with maps and addresses given for site visitors and potential travelling fans as handy directions. Tickets/Gate prices can be added should it be required.

League tables are automatically generated from a central source so at no time does admin have to constantly update league table standings. Match reports can be written up with the ability to add video/audio/pictures to help summarise how the match went for fans to enjoy.

There was also the requirements to list all players at the club and backroom staff along with their biogs and sponsors. Club and player sponsors can have their own page of information giving them more exposure to visitors of the website.

Finally, the homepage, pulls everything together and automatically updates each week with new fixtures, match reports and news

A big thanks to all the team at Peroosh for creating the new website for East KIlbride Football Club.

They really understood our requirements from day one and listened to all our needs.

Throughout the short build and test process, they were all extremely helpful and attentive to ensure that all our requirements were understood and fulfilled.

They also took the time to meet me for a 1-2-1, to fully demonstrate the back office functions and to help ensure we knew how to navigate the site fully.

The new site is fantastic and they significantly improved our communications with all supporters and stakeholders. We can now easily add new information, which is easily presented and allows us a great vehicle to get our messages and information out.

I would thoroughly recommend Peroosh to others who are thinking about revitalising their online presence, professional, courtesy, friendly and helpful, they really understand their business!

In the end...

Another happy client. With such high demands from their supporters, EKFC needed the reliability of the Peroosh Content Management System that was easily to use whilst giving them full flexibility to present content as and when they needed to. With the ability to setup all their forthcoming season league and cup fixtures, player biogs, sponsors plus lots more, they don’t need to constantly rely on a web design agency to help out day to day.
