The Talent Scout The job of the talent scout is to attend matches, training and events with the objective of spotting potential players for their club or academy to sign. The Tactical Scout The job of the tactical scout is to attend opponent club s matches and build up a knowledge base for the Chief Scout to present to the club manager.

Week 1 Club Structure and Soccer Academies, Learning Objective and Assignment, Part 1 Mark Elton

3 Part 2 Choose a local Soccer Academy or Soccer Performance Centre of Excellence and research its history and evaluate its success in soccer development within the community. Crystal Palace Soccer Academy Crystal Palace Football Club is an English professional football club based in South Norwood, London. The Academy Crystal Palace have a tradition of promoting local talent to it s first team squad with impressive results. London is a hugely populated area, so the Academy can draw on a good pool of players from within a few miles of it s base. And despite stiff competition from other well established Academies linked with Premiership clubs, the demographics of the area works in it s favour. The Academy finds players in it s local community by holding community based events such as Holiday Courses Programme, Talent Identification Days & School Partnership Programmes. (The Schools Partnership Programme enables all schools in the club s catchment area to engage with the club) Victor Moses, now of Liverpool, went to school in South Norwood after arriving in this country from Nigeria and Wilfred Zaha now at Manchester United settled in the area having moved from the Ivory Coast. Gary Issott, the Academy Director said: "A lot of African lads end up here, you just wait for them to walk through Heathrow or Gatwick. That's been one reason for the Crystal Palace Academies success but there's also been a lot of good people involved in the academy going back to a former player, John Cartwright, who also coached at England youth level. Having coaches of that quality involved with the academy means being able to put a big emphasis on recruitment which is the biggest part of the Academy set-up. No less than 1 6 out of the current crop of 1 9 players in this years Academy squad come from within the M25. With such a rich history of young talent, getting the right players to go through to the first team is crucial. The fans expect it and are always waiting for the next Moses, Clyne or Zaha. The highest transfer fee received for a Palace player is 1 5 million, from Manchester United for Wilfried Zaha in January Since 2000, 35 players have come through the Palace Academy to make appearances for the first team.

4 Part 3 Using the same academy, identify 3 professional players that have graduated from the Academy (must be within the last 3 years). Are they now playing with the first team, and were they sold? Document their full playing history to date, including clubs that they have played for, number of appearances, goals, assists, value, etc Kyle Matthew De Silva Date of Birth: 29 November Height: 5ft 7in Weight 60.3kg Value: 250,000 Is an English professional footballer who plays for Crystal Palace as Career Crystal Palace an attacking midfielder De Silva is a product of the Crystal Palace academy and possesses pace and quick feet.
