SCOUTING & ANALYSIS
During my 15 years experience as a coach and scout, I have gained a solid foundation in planning, developing and running practice sessions. I have developed a deep tactical knowledge of football from coaching and scouting elite youth teams and University level teams in Europe, North America & Asia.
SCOUTING & ANALYSIS HISTORY
Following on from completing the Soccer Management & Scouting course with SMWW in 2014, I was offered an internship by Matt Martin who was the Head of scouting for Sporting Kansas City of the MLS.
At the end of the 2014 season, I worked with Fundy Soccer to help prepare the U16 Premier team for the National Championships, by providing analysis of the teams performance during exhibition games leading up to the tournament.
As a Scout for the University of Prince Edward Island in Canada during their regular season and during the U-Sport National Championships, assessing the games of upcoming opponents and producing detailed team and individual reports to identify the relative tactical threats and weaknesses in the opposition. The mens team finished 3rd at the Nationals in the 2014 season.
During the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015 I worked with the Canadian Women’s National team in video capturing for opposition analysis.
In 2015 /16 I provided training and game analysis to the Team New Brunswick, male and female Canada Games squads, during their tour to Montreal QC. This involved live video capture and tagging of games in real-time using Longomatch, providing detailed reports on team and individual performance, as well as assisting with presenting analysis during team meetings.
In 2017 as part of my role as Regional Technical Director of Soccer Cape Breton, I created a team analysis program for the premier team coaches, in order to increase their level of knowledge of tactics and provide value add education to the clubs staff.
From 2018 to 2020 with UKCoach-China, I regularly delivered Talent I.D services in the form of scouting missions and games and tournaments, resulting in the production of detailed player profiles and reports. This work was contract work for Shanghai Leader and JCB F.C.
