I am only putting this in "chit chat" to give it maximum exposure for our members to join up if they wish. I will move it to the Games forum after a few days.It is free so this is no real advertisement.

Hi Shrimperzone Administrator(s)

As the leading forum for Southend United FC community we wanted to drop you line to see if you would be interested in an exclusive opportunity for your readers.
We are helping to launch a brand new football game called Big Match Striker for a UK games developer, Supermassive Games, and wandered whether you'd be interested in hearing more about the game ahead of its official launch on 14th September.

This is a new type of game for real football fans. It's a free to play downloadable PC game, challenging player's football knowledge, club management strategy and team tactics. Players invite their mates and enter leagues, answering daily updated questions from the top four tiers of the English Football League, as well as historic and wider football trivia.

We would like to offer you an exclusive opportunity to offer your followers the chance to become one of the first 'Founders' in the open beta trial phase of the game which will last for the next week, where they will receive a special trophy identifying them as a founder member of the game, claiming ultimate bragging rights, as well as other rewards such as in-game currency, Smackers.

A trailer of the game can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1oOvQ2BcmU. The game's community website with full game features, news and download link is : http://www.bigmatchonline.com
