Information about the Website and BIPHA South Wales

This web site was first published at the end of the 2001-2002 season as a method of circulating the stats to the clubs rather than posting them out. The stats were calculated by hand, a time consuming and error prone exercise. A better solution had to be found.
After researching software available SNAPSHOT! software was used for the first time. The 2001-2002 stats were eventually published on the internet after the end of the season.
SNAPSHOT! software is still being used by us today. No longer supported or available to buy it continues to provide us with impressive stats collected on match days.
Although it was designed to run on Windows XP, the software runs on Vista and Windows 7, but not on the latest versions of Windows.

The website had a re-design in 2016. Over the history of the web site many pages were not standardised and needed updating. All the stats pages were cleaned up and new graphics were displayed. Current stats pages also had printer friendly links added.

Web Site Information 2010

9th October 2010 by Graham Collins - Statistics & Website Officer

The stats pages are currently being redesigned for the new season.
When I started the first web site in 2001 I didn't plan ahead for the number of pages that would be needed to display the stats. As a result the pages were becoming more and more difficult to navigate.
I will in future condense all the various stats pages into one page for each season, except for the current season where each age group will continue to have its own page.
Until this process is complete some links may be broken. Some of the older pages could be accessible until the process is complete.
