    Hey,i was wondering how does one get scouted for a pro football club?

    Does living near a football club help as in going to Sussex Uni , living in neighbourhood to Brighton Hove FC ? Does it even affect your chances in any way?

    What about shifting to a big city like Liverpool or Manchester ?

    Just play for a local youth side but the older you are the harder it generally is to like get into a top clubs academy plus you obviously have to be good. I guess living near a football club would help as it will be more likely to have scouts around but the disadvantage shifting to a big city would be that there's more competition. Here maybe this link helps somewhat

    Clubs have scouts around the country looking for talents, if you happen to catch their eye when you are playing then they will speak to you about taking you on. Good luck.:yy:

    I was in the Centre of Excellence for a team currently in League One and basically got scouted playing Sunday League football as a kid. Almost every club will run ''Football in the Community'' type sessions and those are also a good opportunity. Generally clubs will find you when you're school aged and assess if you're good enough, take me for example I ended up being released at 16. Took it badly and now i'm hopelessly out of shape

    It's definitely not too late though, if you look around there are loads of success stories. Jermaine Beckford worked for the RAC until Leeds picked him up, Steve Morison was working part time in a warehouse and Charlie Austin was a bricklayer. Best bet at your age is to trial for a local non league side, Blue Square North/South and the leagues below that. Pre season is coming up and many will be offering trials. A lot of lower league clubs will look to non league for potential new signings.

    Man, i don't like you! How could you stop playing Football? Just because you got released you stopped having the love for the game? Are you serious?! I don't wanna listen to any reasons that could force you *Hopelessly Out Of Shape* !! Even then you could have played football regularly!

    Watch Goal! Get Inspired!

    Let me just tell you who I am!

    I am the man who will become the first man from his country to play League 2/League 1 regularly ; very soon!

    I am also the man who has set to become the first man from his country to play The Championship/Barclays Premier League! Soon!

    That's all there is to it! !!

    Am I an idiot? Hahahahhaahhahahahahhahahahaha

    I still want to thank you for the effort you put in to help me!
