Covid crisis: Football scouts database
Written by Training Ground Guru — November 9, 2020
SCOUTING is facing an unprecedented challenge because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
We're hearing about more and more clubs laying off scouts, so we decided to create this resource. Below, you'll find a list of those who have been made redundant by English clubs during the pandemic and who are available for work.
There's a brief summary of who they are, where they last worked, the region they cover and their email address. If you have an opportunity, then get in touch.
If you're a scout working in England who has been made redundant during the pandemic, and want your details added to the database, then email firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll be updating the list every day.
