What is PlayerWanted?
PlayerWanted.co.uk is a unique free service for all sports which gives players the chance to find a club or team in their area in their preferred sport and enables coaches and managers to post adverts for new players.
Find your team today!
Whether it is football, cricket, rugby, hockey - or any other sport for that matter - PlayerWanted.co.uk is THE online database where you as a player can find the right club. It is the brainchild of youth football manager and dad Adam Gillham, who runs an Under 11s team with FA Charter Standard club Beacons FC in South East London.
He found it hard to advertise for players and realised how daunting it was for parents and players to find a club near them.
Ditch the local papers and get online!
He said: "Like many coaches, I've used local papers to advertise for players but not all of them have a Players Wanted section and even then it is very hit and miss."
"Speaking to fellow managers, I realised how hard it was to try and advertise for new players and that there was no national database out there where coaches could advertise for players in a simple way - so I decided to create one myself."
We'll bring the local communities to you!
"It also hard for parents to find the right club - they have to know the local leagues or the local clubs in their area. It's even harder if you are new to a certain area and want to find a club."
"But this is not just for football. Whatever team sport you play, you can use PlayerWanted.co.uk.
"We've made it as simple as possible for players or parents as well as coaches and managers to use and it is designed for both senior and youth teams."
Get the exposure your team deserves!
"I also know how much hard work, time and effort managers and players put into their sport and the service is completely free to use."
"We hope managers will make it the first port of call when looking to recruit and we also hope that players of all ages and parents will use it to find clubs in their area."
