We are delighted to see our BSc(Hons) Applied Football Studies graduate Alex Crean embracing his next challenge with UEFA on their Elite Scout Programme.

UEFA were proud to announce that 35 scouts of 25 different nationalities, representing 34 clubs and national associations were in attendance at the introductory seminar at UEFA HQ with the focus of the day centred on football scouting, talent identification and the key principles of player development.

Alex continued dedication to education and self-development led him to apply for the programme and he is very much enjoying his journey so far 'From the expert guest speakers in the seminars to the experiences from the personnel on the course I have well and truly had a superb week of education and getting to know what Talent ID & Development is all about'.
