In my spare time I design websites from scratch using the WordPress CMS, no templates. For my Grassroots Connected project I re-designed the standard template used by the vast majority of grassroots and non-league football clubs using the Grassroots Connected club website platform.
With the new design I made life easier for football club webmasters with pre-defined page templates, team pages with enhanced safeguarding features and a slicker responsive website design that is mobile friendly.
Earlier in the year I rebranded Team Websites to Grassroots Connected, a stronger unified online presence with a new pricing model to make it financially viable to cover web server hosting costs. When mapping out the new website design and planning, I consulted a small focus group of existing clubs that use our platform to seek improvements and feature ideas, putting them on a Trello board.
