A scout will also be present on two dates to assess local talent aged  six to -11 year old, club secretary Wayne Dixon told South Leeds Life.

The partnership forms one of the Middleton football club’s free community open days.

The coaching and scouting sessions will be held on Wednesday, October 16, for six to eight year olds and Wednesday, October 23 for nine to 11-year-olds. Both sessions run from 6pm-7.30pm on the 3G pitch at the newly reopened Middleton Leisure Centre.

Wayne added:

“Our club has several volunteer football coaching positions available, if you are interested, please get in touch with me. We are now playing at our state-of-the-art pitches based at Middleton Leisure Centre and want as many people as possible playing in our colours on them.”

  1. it’s a pity that LUFC scouts are not present to snap up local talent and not a fortunate well funded dark side manc club.


  2. There are other local clubs that have a good partnership with LUFC so where there is a talent to be nurtured to higher levels of the game, they are responsibly referred up to them or other professional sides to fulfil their potential. It’s a bit of marketing gimmick aimed at parents with stars in their eyes to openly publicise the presence of top team “talent scouts.” C’est la vie.
