For those who don't use twitter- the club tweeted their new site which is:

https://www.kingstonianfc.com/

It actually seems to be pretty good and not that dissimilar to Gary's site. Gary does very good sites and always very easy to click through (certainly as compared to Pitchero) and I always go to FWP for live scores, so I imagine the new site will have lost some functionality, but not a bad replacement from what I can tell so far.

As you say it seems we have lost quite a bit of the history between the days of the original K's web and this season, and I think when we moved from Pitchero to Gary's site some history may have been lost then as well. Results over this period can still be seen on FWP but the reports that went with this on the official site I think have gone from the internet or at least I couldn't find it on the slimmed down site that Gary was hosting and certainly not on the new one.

I have all the reports saved on my PC anyway so the history isn't lost and did pass on an HDD to the Supporters club with all this information. At times I am tempted to just get a basic set of results/reports up on my site, especially with how slowly I am getting the old history up, The way I am doing things at the moment means I may never get the site finished in my lifetime (but hoping someone is keen enough to help at some point in the future or take it over when I'm gone).

However doing this would take time away from the old history and mean extra work when I come to do the seasons properly because there'll be all sorts of changes needed and it's virtually start again. Like I could spend perhaps a year producing results lists and linking to a Comet/K's Web/Official site report but then all the links would change once I get to do it "properly" and also there might be corrections needed anyway at that stage as each season I put up online presently there is usually things I need to correct.

I'll have a think though because it does feel like we should have this information up on the internet somewhere.
