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.
Who am I? Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.
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.
Pitch is an innovative and new website that links players to scouts and has even been termed the LinkedIn or Tinder of football (see link here).
Fitness Testing for the FootballerFitness tests, one of the many topics of discussion sports enthusiasts, coaches, scouts and even sports scientists cover at lunch (rock n roll, right?).
