Norwich scouts 12:35 - Sep 15 with 3569 viewssuffolkpoker

One turned up to my lads first game of the season. He calls the manager pre game t let him know.
He picks the best player from our team and the other team and invited them for trails.

I know I live in a boarder town but still breaks my heart when I see it.
They are simply scooping the best young talent across East Anglia

I don’t know, we must be doing something right as we’ve always done alright in regards to youth (now see Woolf)

What border town do you live in out of interest?

They have financially outmuscled us for a long time now and they have certainly invested in their infrastructure and youth

It's sad to see them outperforming us with youth development

Alcohol is the answer but I can't remember the question!

Maybe challenge Lee O'Neill to provide an answer.

This sort of thing has been going on for some years now though. For example, I know someone who trains boys at a really good youth club, with top teams throughout the age groups. They regularly have scouts from many of the local clubs, including Nodge, Wham and Spurs, but also Southend, Colchester and Millwall. Noteworthy to him is the absence of a single scout from Ipswich, over many years.

Bit weird when you consider that Evans made it the first point in his five point plan back in December 2016 to concentrate on the academy in order to bring youth players through into the first team.

I can see why this appears annoying but it happens both ways and is not as dramatic as you make it sound.

We regularly watch/pluck very good players from Norfolk based teams. It’s the way football works.

And this isn’t happening because they’re now in the premiership. During our premiership seasons Norwich came and scouted my nephew who was a very promising youngster. Thankfully he chose to play in the USA instead.

An Ipswich scout came and watched a game when a mate of mine ran a team, Town were alerted by a 3 - 3 draw against a very good team previously, scouts go to many games and with 99% of kids not making it very far in the game it is all about numbers and trying to judge if a kid can progress. My mate was dead chuffed when the scouts picked out his lad a having great potential as he had fantastic vision to pick a pass and a high awareness of space, but when they were told he had kidney failure and was awaiting a transplant they knew he would not be able to make it to any significant level.

What age group?


Young mate U6’s

Interestingly our club had 2 other games on at the same time on the same field, but older age groups. He didn’t leave our game or even go over to the others.

That’s just normal.

I live on the Cambs/Suffolk border these days and have Ipswich, Norwich, Camb U, Pboro sniffing around regularly. Southend/MKDons sometimes too. Oh, and Northampton once 😄

That seems absurdly young to be scouting. I realise clubs don’t care and are just intent on hoovering up as many prospects as they can but U6, really?!

Where there is competitive football, scouts won’t be far away.
U6’s you can start to see the stronger lads.

"around our first team" ?

We have dropped a league and yet how many are there ? Not the half of the squad by 2017 as talked about before. When was the last time we produced a keeper to play in the first team....nearly 15 years ago, I believe.

Optimism is one thing, blind delusion another.

Kenlock, Wolf, Ndaba, Downes, Bishop, Dozzell, Nydam, El Mizouni, Lankester.

3 of those start regularly, 2 more regularly on the bench and 3 would be more involved if not injured, Ndaba more youth for now.
