Clubs Advertising for Players, Coaches and Volunteers
The first thing a club needs to do if it is going to advertise for players is adjust the setting on their ‘club marketing’ page on their member services account. This directly links to the ‘Find a club’ tool that is on every County FA and The FA website and anyone looking for a club is likely to use this tool at some point.
A guide on how to promote vacancies using this service is available to download under 'Documents' below.
The next thing you may consider doing is putting a short message and your contact details on the Players Noticeboard (if you are looking to recruit players), on the Coaches Noticeboard (if you are looking to recruit coaches) or the Clubs & Leagues Noticeboard (if you are looking to recruit volunteers).
