Looking to take part in football for the first time? Keen to get back into the game after a spell on the sidelines? It’s deep into the 2017/18 season but local grassroots teams are still using the ouronline ‘Squad Booster’ portal to advertise for new faces during February.
The Squad Booster service contains live classified adverts from clubs on the lookout for new players to supplement their squads. Teams struggling for numbers can attract new blood by submitting an advert to thousands of players, of all abilities, who can use Squad Booster to find regular football.
The service is pivotal to achieving one of Essex grassroots football’s main goals - simply to get more people playing. Adverts are shared amongst the local media and are individually published on Twitter, with prominent links from Facebook.
