These fixtures have to be manually calculated ( not use the formal grid matrix) due to a number of considerations.

Including trying to ensure


  1. Travel to and from the IOW clubs is, where possible, maximised to save costs.
  2. Ensuring there are enough pitches for the games scheduled
  3. Larger clubs have at least one home game in a weekend
  4. Club request are accommodated.  ( pitches not available )
  5. No more than 3 home or away games on the trot.  


This is not easy to do and I apologise if your club is victim to fixture “anomalies”.


I am happy to accommodate changes of date/ venue if mutually agreed with your opposition before the start of the season.


Note  - Hampshire 4 will be release by next Monday when entrants are confirmed.

GMS / FSi Website workshop -  Thursday 4th  July – Trojans FC - SO50 9HT


Several clubs have expressed an interest to use GMS as a one stop shop for all Club Admin, this includes for receiving payments and websiteBy the club putting a greater emphasis on GMS and using the application for the majority of club administration a great deal of benefits can be attained. Such as: 


  • Costs of running a website are increasing (Hosting, storage etc or if they are using Pitchero, the annual fees and advertising)
  • Costs of paying online – GMS is competitive to others and linked to memberships and individuals
  • Duplicating effort – Managing multiple systems and working in silo and reducing volunteer hours
  • Individuals taking control over their own data and keeping it up to date (rather than the club admins)
  • Increase focus on data being up to date in GMS
  • All administration being completed in a single application, secure and backed up, changes to ticket Allocation, roll out of electronic Match Card & Online Player Registration

 To support our clubs we have arranged a Hampshire GMS / FSi’s website workshop  to take place at Trojans FC on Thursday 4th  July


 The schedule for the day is as follows: 

  • 1300  Commence hourly individual Club Workshop with the last one starting at 1800
    • Six clubs – That are serious about linking their GMS data with the FSi’s website. Each club will receive a one hour focused session.  These slots will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  I must reinforce that these clubs should have a strong desire using the GMS / FSi’s website . (If inundated with request we will coordinate another workshop day). 
  • 1915:  A workshop / forum will be held for all other clubs to share the benefits of using GMS/ FSi’s Website
