'We are looking for people that want to be part of the Academy experience' says Lee O'Neill

Town are looking for scouts for the Academy in Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Hertfordshire.

The scouts will be looking for players between U7-U12 for the Foundation Development Phase and U13-U16 for the Youth Development Phase.

“We are looking for people that want to be part of the Academy experience and help support ITFC by identifying talent within our local community and further catchment areas,” Academy manager, Lee O’Neill, told the Club website. 

“We have key development centres across Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex which has helped us identify many Academy graduates down the years such as Kieron Dyer, Andre Dozzell, James Scowcroft, Darren Bent, Teddy Bishop, Darren Ambrose and many more.” 

Players must live within a catchment area of 60 minutes drive (AA route planner) from the ITFC Training Centre IP4 5RQ for U8-U11s and 90 minutes for U12-U16s.

Scouts will have two season tickets for Town first-team games, plus a Club kit and be put on a bonus scheme.

Include name, contact number, address, identification (passport or driving licence), DBS/CRB plus two references.
