JDG Media has launched a new football website dedicated to the sport in the north west, at www.thefootypost.com.
Initially, the site will provide columns and features focused on all levels of football, from Manchester United and Liverpool in the Premier League, to Chester and Southport in the National League and beyond.
The likes of Preston, Wigan and Accrington will also feature.
James Gordon, site editor, said: “I have been wanting to launch a football site to sit alongside our rugby league and ice hockey sites for a very long time.
“This idea actually goes back 10 years, and it’s both surprising and frustrating that it has taken me this long to realise it.
“There are so many fantastic football websites out there that it is silly to just go out and try and do what is already being done, something we had the capability of doing thanks to our existing work on Love Rugby League.
“I believe this is an interesting niche for us to explore, and the challenge now is going to be coming up with the interviews and features that you can’t find anywhere else.”
The site has soft launched ahead of the end of the football season, with the idea to grow awareness, add content and find partners ahead of the 2016/17 season.
James added: “As a massive football fan and a proud Warringtonian, I am always interested in how local teams are doing, whether that be our local Premier League sides or the likes of Crewe and Preston lower down.
“Certainly below the Premier League, coverage in a central place is sparse, and I do feel that there is the interest and potential for a thriving north west community scene.
“I mustn’t forget to mention non-league football too – a big part of my life, and I hope that this site can provide opportunities for non-league clubs to be featured to a wider audience.”
