If you’re lucky enough to use a smart phone, iCal or Outlook, you can get the 2011 fixtures now and (if I get the time) have the scores update for each game directly into your diaries on your phone.  “Wow!”  I hear you say.  You can do this by subscribing to a file on the website on your phone.  It’s easy to do and will automatically update with any changes.

Just follow the instructions below  (if you’ve got an iPhone, just read the last 10 lines:

DOWNLOADABLE FIXTURE LIST

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN “DOWNLOAD” AND “SUBSCRIBE”

Download is a one-off import of the fixtures. If the fixtures change, you will need to download the calendar file again to update your data. If you subscribe to the calendar feed, your calendar application will sync the fixture dates and start times automatically without the need for a manual update so you will always have the latest information.

See instructions below for downloading or subscribing to your relevant calendar
