    UK Football Scores

    Is there a plugin available to scroll the latest scores from UK football matches on the display of a Squeezebox? Ideally you would be able to choose what leagues you want scores from ie the EPL and the SPL only.

    Perhaps you could find an RSS newsfeed?

    That's the BBC general football news feed. It doesn't generally list all results. I believe there are sites where you can get news bulletins for your favourite team, but I haven't found one that gives just prem results.

    This wouldn't work as an RSS feed, would it?

    Nope! But it shouldn't be too hard to parse the source code for that webpage... ;-)

    I'm tempted, but it's late and I've been ripping my CD collection into the early hours for the past week. *yawn*
