How Football Scouts Work

Posted on August 27, 2020 at 5:04 pm

A football scout can be defined as the one who attends football matches on behalf of clubs. The main goal of a football scout is to collect football information and intelligence regarding a certain player that the club is eyeing. With the information collected by the scout, the club can make a concrete decision on whether to sign the player or not. It is important to note that there are two types of football scouts. The first scout goes for the players while the second type of scout goes for the tactical evaluation.

Additionally, football scouting experts focus on the pace of the players they are trying to negotiate a deal for. English premier league is known to be a bit faster than the other leagues. Therefore, a scout that is representing an English team is very much aware of this and definitely, they will go for pace and speed. A player with natural pace will always stand out.

Focus On The Character And Temperament- This is another key factor that football scouts look and work on. There is plenty of young footballers across Europe who are massively talented but the lack of discipline and consistency to take them to the next level. Scouts will highly involve themselves with players that can listen to instructions and handle criticisms positively. This kind of players will always have a chance with most of the scouts. They prove that they can listen to a coach.

Lastly, it may surprise you that most scouts no longer attend live grassroots matches today like before. They can scout players from their comfort zone due to the recent growth of technology that enables them to stream live matches. Furthermore, there is a scouting organisation that has footage, statistics and general information that can be used by scouts to understand their target better.

It’s fair to say that becoming a football scout is not something you can achieve overnight and it’s a very serious career move. Many people play Football Manager on the Playstation and believe they have what it takes to become a scout, but there is so much more to it than looking at data. Football is not just about talent. It’s about having the right attitude to become a top athlete and success. It takes people skills to learn ‘who has what it takes’.

Football is a sport that will always draw in billions of fans across the globe and competition for places is fiercer than ever, with many talented footballers not making it to the top. It’s up to scouts to find the very best, naturally gifted footballers and hard workers who can graft their way to the top! We do hope this article gives you more information on the world of football scouting, and if it is something you’re interested in, it’s well worth looking at the different courses you can take, to show you have what it takes too.

Non-Contact Sports

What are non-contact sports?
Non-contact sports are any sport where people do not need to touch each other or go near each other. Other types of non-contact sports can also be single-person sports. They are good for people who want to be active but are worried about getting injured.

What are the best Non-contact sports?
1- Swimming
Swimming is one of my personal favourite non-contact sports. It is much more relaxing than some of the others. It also is a great exercise for all of your muscles.

2- Golf
Golf is another excellent non-contact sport. This is once again a very relaxing sport. It is good for exercising your arm muscles. This can as well become more competitive.

3- Tennis
This non-contact sport does require at least 2 people to play. However, it is a much more active sport than others. It allows you to move around much more. Tennis is also a good choice if you like something more competitive.
