Football news and results is one of the most popular services on the BBC's mobile site. That's no surprise - when you're out and about, it's easy to use your phone to follow a match or get the latest signing and transfer news.

244_homepagemyclub.jpgIn April we launched our customisable mobile homepage and now we've launched a new feature for football fans. Users can now add a 'My Club' topic - the top three headlines for your team plus links to the latest live text commentary, results, tables and fixtures. As with the rest of the homepage, you can position the content wherever you like - top, middle or bottom.

We're also currently thinking about what we can do to enhance our coverage during the season, such as the different kinds of information people want- in the build up to a game, during the action and following the end of a match.

If you've got any ideas or requests, we welcome feedback on how we can develop this, and all of our services. You can mail us directly; or use the feedback form on the mobile site.

For now, please try our My Club topic and tell us what you think. It's available on all handsets that support the customisable mobile homepage.

Here's how to add it:

  1. Go to the homepage at www.bbc.co.uk/mobile on your phone (or text MOBILE to 81010, texts to the BBC cost 10p to 15p)

  2. Click on 'Customise my homepage'

  3. Scroll down until you see My Club (Football) in the list of available topics

  4. Hit the plus sign to add it to your homepage

  5. If you want to move it up the page, select the 'Reorder your homepage' link and use the arrows to reorder your homepage

  6. Press the save button and you'll see My Club on your homepage

  7. Then you just need to pick from the 158 teams we cover.

My Club covers the Premier, Scottish Premier and Championship teams, Leagues One and Two, the Blue Square Premier and Scottish League Divisions One, Two and Three.
