About Player Scout
At Player Scout, we come to work every day because we want to share our knowledge, and help players maximise their full potential within football.
There is no one size fits all solution to becoming a professional football player. However, we work hard to create and supply all the necessary information to improve your chances of competing at the highest level.
Coaches are Guessing
A large number of grassroots coaches are unaware of how to effectively train individual players, or how to develop position-specific attributes.
“Only 0.5% of U9’s at top academy clubs will develop into first team players.”
With over 12,500 players signed to football club academies in the UK, that’s 12,438 football players that won’t make it into a professional first team! But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Throughout the history of football, coaches use proven experience to develop players. However, with the pressure of modern-day football, there is a distinct lack of patience to allow players to mature and gain confidence. Our mission at Player Scout is to make the football player development industry as transparent as possible. Allowing players from all backgrounds the chance to improve their game. We want to ensure that top of the game training techniques are available to everyone, not just the 12,500 academy players.
And for those lucky enough to make it into an academy, we want to help them to learn about their bodies, game play and mindset, so that more will progress into first-team players from grassroots.
