Part 2: Football trials and tribulations of a pro footballer.
Journey into football. On my journey into the world of football and talent ID I have reached out to many thinking I would never get the chance to speak to them! This was one of those occasions.

I had the great pleasure to speak with Simon O’Neill, a scout who has worked for AFC Fylde but more recently working with Wealdstone in the National League.
I recently put out an announcement on LinkedIn to see if I could get any help writing this blog on mental health, well-being and player care.
I had the unique opportunity to gain some insights from a very experienced scout, Ged Searson, who is not only an experienced coach but also a scout with over 25 years working in the industry.
