South East England Schools' FA

I have been involved with the South-East England Schools' Football Association (SEESFA) through my work with the Middlesex Schools' FA. and have been collating the results of the various competitions run by SEESFA using the Full-Time software provided by The FA for a number of seasons. I did this primarily to assist with the management of the Middlesex Schools' FA website, whilst also providing a resource for the other member associations.

SEESFA had a website, but it hadn't been maintained since 2012, due to the challenges of using the Content Management System provided by their hosts. Working alongside the volunteer members of the Management Committee, I took a 'clean slate' approach to the site, with the aim of creating a 'one-stop-shop' for results and fixtures.

To achieve this in an efficient fashion, I embedded data feeds from Full-Time into the site, meaning that whenever the central database was updated, the SEESFA site would reflect this immediately, in the same way that the Middlesex site does. An example of these feeds in action can be found on the U14 Boys' League Tables page.

The site went live in October 2017 and uses a responsive layout which is optimised to ensure the site loads quickly on any device.
