Spurs Scouting


The UEFA European Under-19 Championship took place in Georgia recently and were won by England who beat Portugal 2-1 in the final.

there were 80 clubs scouting the tournament and we had at least three scouts there including our former chief scout Ian Broomfield who was working part-time for us.

The six day Hughes Insurance Foyle Cup started yesterday involving 340 teams from around the world, including England, Scotland, Finland, Germany, France, Canada and America, who have come to Ireland for the tournament. There are also 28 women's football teams taking part in their own tournament.

All the major clubs in the UK will be present during the week to scout talent, which naturally includes Tottenham Hotspur. That has been confirmed by Michael Hutton Chairman of Hughes Insurance Foyle Cup who gets reports from hotels.

“Hotels are reporting to me more than ever over the past few years and especially this year, that the major clubs in Britain are booking scouts into hotels.
“Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs, Sunderland, Sheffield United, Celtic, Rangers, Hearts, Aberdeen and many others - will each have several scouts in the city, very much focusing on what Irish talent is available.
“More and more clubs are looking at the success of Irish players with Premier League club and are determined to find future stars – thereby saving themselves millions of pounds that their clubs cannot afford. 
“More professional clubs are crossing the Irish Sea and it is particularly pleasing to see present Celtic manager – Brendan Rodgers, a former player within the Derry & District Youth Football – identify with the event by encouraging Celtic U14 team to compete.”

Former Tottenham striker Robbie Keane, John O’Shea, Paddy McNair, Darron Gibson, Shay Given, Paddy McCourt, Daniel Lafferty, James McClean and Shane Duffy have all been discovered ans signed after appearing in this tournament.

The tournament sees Under-9, Under-10, Under-11, Under-12, Under-13, Under-14, Under-15, Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Girls under-11, Girls Under-13 and Ladies sides taking part.
