xipher.. i got my ideas from looking at A LOT of german clan sites.. not to stereotype but german clans seem to also have the best coders.. there are tons of clan management scripts out there already, for the most part they already include some sort of forum (that was my problem, not unlike your current one).. not to mention i didnt need alot of fluff, just a few pages here and there to fill in gaps.
Take a look at a script called HT: Stats .. the URL is currently down : www.hatethis.net
.. it was written for a counterstrike clan if i reme correctly, precisely for just
posting match results.. however if you can find a copy i will happily help you in modifying it to you use the phpbb template system. Its where i began to get my ideas from.
It sounds like youre alot like i was ..not wanting an out of the box solution such as yet another clan management thingermajigger", but rather something thats "fits" with what you already had.
