Covid crisis: Football scouts database

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 info@trainingground.guru. We'll be updating the list every day.
