With the season now over it has become apparent over the last few days that clubs have now begun the search for new players, coaches and other staff to aid their club for next season. I have decided that each club chat board will have it's own advertisments thread in which ads can be placed so not to clog up the other threads on each board.

The rules are as follows:

1. You may only post advertisements for coaches, players and other staff in this thread. Any general banter or posts of other nature will be removed.
2. Advertisements may only be posted in the designated sections of each board or sub-board. Any ads that are posted outside of the designated threads will be removed and the user banned for a minimum of one week.
3. You may only post one ad per position in any thread. Any threads containing two or more posts of the same material will be removed until only one post of that material remains.
4. All posts must adhere to BIG's terms and conditions of use.

Okay, post your ads below.
