I would like to personally thank IPSO (International Professional Scouting Organisation) for their education, mentoring and career support. Today I have took on a 1st Team Scouting role with Ross County FC, I am now another successful story to come out of IPSO, (and there are many) to have been offered a role at such a great club. It’s no question I am sat here a better scout with this opportunity through IPSO education and practical experience. My journey with IPSO doesn’t stop because I found a role, I will still attend courses as no course is the same, with different experienced scouts from home and abroad all in attendance. Another huge thanks to Ross County and John McGinley for this massive opportunity and support in my continuous development as a scout.
