Obviously the technical glitches need to be ironed out asap so keep the feedback coming. However I don't think having our main sponsor prominent on this site is a bad thing. Yes our history is important but consigned to history is where we would be heading if we didn't show a bit of commercial nous from time to time.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.

If it wasn't for GPF Lewis we wouldn't have a new website. Nor a newly sponsored main stand or a new scoreboard (which is on order) thanks to their relationship with Wenzels.. Everything is for sale if it brings in money to improve the club and team IMHO.

Not quite EVERYTHING in my opinion but I get your point.

Work continues to iron out the 'wrinkles' - issues with accessabilty are reducing, however to help if any individual is still having a problem it would be useful if they could say whether it is on a desktop/mobile/ tablet and the operating system on the device.

The new Commercial website page can be accessed here - https://www.wealdstone-fc.com/sponsorship

If it is still not working for you then contact Club President, Paul Rumens (paulrumens59@gmail.com or Mobile: 07710929692) who is dealing with Match Sponsorship, Match Ball Donation and Kit Donation enquires this season.

Must confess that I agree with you Lanarkian.

New site doesn't excite me and it seems a lot slower on my laptop than the old one and on my Samsung phone it's slower still and very difficult to access what you're after.

Perhaps we didn't realise just how good the old Hills run site was and how much info there was on it and how easy it was to navigate around.

Alan, absolute EXCELLENT work that your son and yourself did on the site that now seems to have disappeared. Many thanks.

Eeeeee in my day we used to code everything in notepad with raw HTML. Literally.
And it didn't matter much as only about 3 people read it.

Because I am on holiday at the moment I had thought the slow load times were down to one of those dodgy EU connections that Brexiters have long suspected. Maybe it is just slow/image heavy on the homepage though. Perhaps reduce the colour depth of some of those images?

Didn't need their website intrusion in the past seasons.

Only just caught up with this gem of a post.

Good to see they don’t restrict internet access to the patients at the institute.

Very kind of them.
