As some of you have already spotted (and very generously contributed to), The Hook has recently added a "Donate" button in the right hand panel. The addition comes as a result of what are hoped to be exciting new developments in the coverage of Leinster hockey.
First of all, due to a high volume of requests in the last month, a dedicated photo sales site capable of producing high quality prints delivered to your door is in the pipeline featuring the work of the Irish Hockey Photographers.
Also at an embryonic stage, a results service for the schoolboy leagues is also being prepared for the 2010/11 season which, if successful, could extend to the rest of the Leinster leagues. The final addition will be a more searchable and user friendly version of The Hook' main site for next year.
The Hook is committed to remaining a free service but these new initiatives take a decent amount of time and effort, as well as a cash outlay which is currently beyond the means of the current advertising income and so, if you feel like donating to help push these developments forward, click on the 'Donate' button.
Also, if you have any ideas, suggestions or requests on how to improve coverage, please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
