What size boat is this on? Knowing that will help give an idea of what type of purchase you need.
One of the advantages of having a club footed staysail is that it will be self tacking. Generally, there are either two eyes spaces apart on the deck or a sheet horse to keep more downward pressure on the clew when the sail is let out a little bit.
If the sail is small, you could dead end at one eye, go through a block at the end of the club and through a turning block at the other eye to a place to make it off. If it is a larger sail and you need more purchase, you can use the same system but with the sheet doubling back on itself.
