No News is Good News
As you may have noticed there are rarely news items about the site posted here simply because there isn't any! However you will be pleased to know that preparations for the 2016/17 season are well under way, some of the fixtures available already are on the site and we will be moving Leagues onto the new season asap after the actual constitutions have been confirmed. Welcome to another season of non league football!! Steve
Time of the Year!
Is it really a year? Where did it go? Anyway we have reached that time where we need to move all the Leagues onto the new 2015/16 season! It takes time so if you see some wrong teams in the wrong divisions don't report it to us... it's a work in progress. We don't list pre-season friendlies on the NLM main site but does our forum? Hell yes as Ed would say! Just go here for the most complete list of 2015-16 day by day pre-season warm ups if you fancy a game to go to before it all kicks off for real: http://www.nonleaguematters.co.uk/forum/gforum.cgi?forum=32; Steve
The scaffolding has gone up around the site as it gets prepared for the new 2014/15 season. Don't report any strange goings on for now until the dust settles, hopefully by the end of July. If you want to edit a League for 2014/15 then you are most welcome.... please click the Big Red Button on the league of your choice and your Editor account will be set up before the new season starts. Thanks..... Steve
2013/14 Season Update
We've dome work on speeding NLM up during the closed season as high traffic numbers were slowing things down. The site is currently being updated for the Season 2013/14. Whilst this is happening some of the Divisions may look a little odd, ie teams not being where they are supposed to be or maps not updated. This isn't an error it's just part of the work in progress. We are still looking for new Editors that might want to get involved with updating the site for the new season particularly if you are interested in Irish / Welsh or English Step 7+ Leagues. All are welcome though and if you would like to be a part of the NLM editing team just click the big red button on any league page! Steve
NLM is now on Twitter! You can follow the site via the twitter logo on the left hand side or at the top of the forum pages.
Traffic Traffic and More Traffic!!
Site traffic to the NLM Site continues to grow as the stats for November show an average of over 700 more unique visitors per day on the site than the same month last year! There were 152,416 unique visitors to NLM last month, an average of 5,081 per day and they loaded 932,616 pages or 31,087 each and every day. To the 700 new visitors here today: Welcome and enjoy the site! Steve
2012/13 Update in Place
The long awaited update that allows league statistics on the site to move on from the opening season is now in place. A few niggles to be resolved but in general all is well. With most leagues already having kicked off this update is around six weeks late so it will take a little time to form the correct constitutions for the 2012/13 season so that editors can start inputting data but we'll catch up as quickly as we can. Once again, if you would like to become a NLM Editor then no technical knowledge is needed and there is nothing to download. Editors are particularly needed for Step 7+ leagues, Welsh and Irish (and for the three Conference divisions oddly enough!) but all are welcome. Just click on the big red button on any league page for details. Thanks.... Steve
NLM Main Site 2012/13 Site Update
The site software developers FDC based in Leicestshire have not been able to deliver the software upgrade that is needed to move the NLM site onto the 2012/13 season so far despite having promised this for the start of June. I continue to press and hopefully this will be completed very shortly. No, I'm not happy with FDC either!

Want to be a NLM Editor?????
Around four months into the life of the NLM main site and things are going well. Most leagues are being updated but we could still be doing better and for that we need more Editors! We particularly need people prepared to update English Step 7+, Welsh and Irish leagues but in no way is it limited to that... even the Conference Leagues are short of Editors. Most Leagues have mailing lists that NLM are subscribed to that can be forwarded to you for the latest results and fixtures and updating a League takes just a few minutes thanks to custom written software that is very simple to use. If you can update a League for us and help promote that League and non league football in general then please click the big red button on any results page. Many Thanks Steve Walker
