It's genuinely worrying that the clubs new site is a month or so old now and is still a shambles. It is built, as far as I can tell, using something we used to refer to as a "wire frame" template when building HTML emails 2 decades ago. If any MONEY is changing hands for this service then it probably needs to stop.
An individual can build a perfectly good and functioning site using hosts like WIX for no cash outlay. After maybe 2 days to build it, updates can be made instantly from anywhere and whilst not a dynamic product, it would be as good if not better than the current offering. https://enlyft.com/tech/products/wix-com

I've also visited apx shop site.

Christ on a Bike.....we are a professional full time elite sports team and whilst I see no benefit in pre-manufacturing products to then sell cheaply or give away unsold, surely we could find a company like KITLOCKER who can access known brands and have a client list that isn't like a village XI hall of fame....aylsbury vale dynamos FC??????

The conflict of interest is staggering and I assume Mr Milner is too busy processing orders from Cottingham Rangers FC to write Press releases, match reports or chase the web company to sort their sh7t out.

Then there's the list of "sponsors" which is essentially a supplier list. "Partners" are mainly paid suppliers who accept a discount on their products or services for a mention in dispatches....like maybe APX or our ticketing, hydration, nutrition, communication, digital media, team travel, first aid, IT support and lottery partners.

The effort that went into building this huge list of entities that don't pay us a farthing is on par with the effort that went into flogging player sponsorships. A few years back, there wasn't much difficulty getting loyal fans to fork out for a photo op and an end of season players shirt, but through decades of neglect, it's becoming a major part of the commercial lead at the company to chase loose change from local companies.

All of this points to a clique mentality of sycophants surrounding an increasingly frustrated owner in the hope of protecting their interests and incomes.

I said yesterday that londonbroncos.co.uk registration lapsed on April 14th.....if the owner doesn't release it, londonbronco.co.uk is available for 99p....the singularity in the name is becoming more apt by the minute.

The club would be well advised to renew that. Lapsed professional sports clubs URL's are a favoured target of cybersquatters who often dump porn all over them and then try to sell the domain back to the club. I know a few clubs that has happened to

That may require a level of competence the club may not have.

It's a Wordpress site. They often come free with hosting as the software is open source (i.e. free) and people have heard of it. Download a (free) template and then stick your logos in that template and you're good to go. Need more functionality, download a (free) plugin. A child could do it; children do do it.

And there may be people out there who think Wordpress is fantastic for exactly these reasons. But it's a very, very easy option for people who have no idea about web development who want to claim they are web developers and pull the wool over a gullible client's eyes. There are much better solutions out there (and much better open source ones too): ones that don't have reputation for getting hacked every ten minutes for a start.
