We have brought to the table a new concept, offering an independent professional assessment for football players of any age.  We offer three levels of service packages across worldwide and UK markets to identify the level of the player and see how close they are to professional football – we then recommend the key next steps on the path to stardom, plus scouting services for professional and non-league clubs.

These are not normal basic reports but ”HIGH-QUALITY” ones delivered by high-quality scouts, not just a coach giving his opinion.

This is all about having your player assessed by our professional scouts who have worked at the highest level for over 20 years minimum some even longer. What we can offer everyone from a Grassroots player to a Semi-professional player to a Professional player is a detailed report as you would get from a Chief Scout or Head of Recruitment at a professional club. These are reports that are super detailed, very accurate and career-changing reports that can make a difference to the player so they can showcase the skill sets that scouts want to see in a player so the player can deliver high quality performances that would interest a scout so they can move forward or get picked up.

There is a massive difference between a coach and a professional scout.    Many think there is no not!    We can show you the difference is HUGE!

 Our experts will look into many aspects of the player that are often overlooked when just looking at the basics as we leave no stone unturned. Others may do the basics when assessing a player like good touch, control, physical strength, decent pace and all that but that is not what we do as anyone can do that, who knows a little bit about football.

This is where IPSO comes in as your player is going to see how a professional scout will perceive them as their coaches will sometimes only say what they want to hear, that’s not what we are trying to do here as we are coaching them from a scouting point of view to show them how to impress people in football ie: managers, coaches or scouts. This is unique as the club they play for will not do to you what we are going to do to you as they haven’t got the time but also they haven’t got specialists like us. Why does Ronaldo not let his wife cook for him as she can cook with no problem? The reason is he needs a specialist cook and nutritionist to make sure he stays at the top for his body etc. We are similar we want to make sure you have the best chance to be what you want to be nothing is given you have to work for it but you also have to be shown how to do it, that’s were IPSO comes in.

Have a look at a detailed report below on a player and ask yourself if you would have seen those things and if you would have worded it in the same football jargon or technical sayings as that. You probably wouldn’t as that report is very detailed, covers many areas and it’s very concise but most importantly we will guarantee you…… IT’S ACCURATE and it will help the player develop quickly in the areas they need.


We have a few ways to help you and your player. 

We have devised 3 different Scouting Reports BRONZE, SILVER & GOLD.

Each report will vary in price and quality but the bottom line is you will have a better understanding of your player 

after an IMPARTIAL REPORT by one of our EXPERT SCOUTS from the Premier League & International Football.


You send us a video of your player from a 90 minute game (No favourite clips just the full game). If the player is only young and only plays 20 to 30-minute halves then send us 3 or 5 halves equivalent of around 90 minutes and off that, we would write a report on what we saw in the player good or bad taking into consideration their age, position, attributes, the quality of the game etc. We will send you a report like the one below on where the player is off this one game and where you should look to improve or maintain your skills from that game. No player should be assessed off one game but if you want a good idea of where the player is at this moment in time we can show you and explain the positives and negatives with a real ”Attention-to-detail” approach that would help to improve the player or a reality check on where they are at this moment in time. You will receive a detailed report and a Zoom call of around 30 minutes to 1 hour with our tutor so they can explain their thoughts and go through any areas to help or advise you in what to do next.


It will be the same as the Bronze report but with a deeper and even more detailed report with the same ”Attention-to-detail” approach that would help to improve the player or a reality check on where they are at this moment in time. But with the SILVER package, you receive a Zoom call of a minimum of 1 hour with our tutor so they can explain their thoughts but this time go through the game as we separate the clips and go deeper into them to show you visually the areas to help or advise you in what to do next.

AN ADDED ADDITION: To this,  is you can send a game a month in so we can see if you’ve improved and guide you in a mentorship way. This has an added charge of £50 a game after the initial £99 but you will be mentored and assessed with strong advice on where you need to improve and what to do next! 



ON THE GOLD PACKAGE: You send us 2 full game videos. We will study and assess them the same way as the Bronze & Silver package. We will compile a professional scouting report noting strengths and weaknesses showing how and where the player can improve, identifying the current level of performance and recommending the next steps. This includes a full personal online presentation of the report and analysis including key moments from video clips explained in detail by one of our experts in a 1 v 1 zoom meeting going through the clips to explain the thought process of the scout. One of our staff will sit down with the player and with the (parent or agent included if wanted) and go through the report and analyse the clips with extra ‘‘Attention To Detail’’ procedures that only IPSO provides on where to improve or keep going within your attributes. You also can have the ADDED ADDITION: Where you can send a game a month in so we can see if you’ve improved and guide you in a mentorship way. This has an added charge of £50 a game after the initial £179 but you will be mentored and assessed with strong advice on where you need to improve and what to do next!


By having this ”Attention to Detail” report supported by evidence-based clips you will massively improve and be on your way to where you want to be.

Player Report 


 The International Professional Scouting Organisation


 Season 2019-20       Club PNE 15’s      Match PNE v Accy Stanley 15’s     

Name  Joe Bloggs     Date 7-8-19    Position Striker     

    Age 15     Height 5’9    Foot Right           



Medium height for his age. He is physically good, athletic-looking and strong for his size. He doesn’t use his physique enough and needs to build this up to gain an advantage. He gets by but could be better if he was stronger. Holds the ball up well but will get brushed off if up against more physical type players in a 1 v1 challenge. Ok and strong enough against players his size.


Doesn’t show it enough, runs at half pace, jogs and walks a lot. Stamina is in question or it could be a lack of desire to sprint and close down? I would say it’s not his pace that is in question (it is his desire) to run that is a slight problem. He sprints half-heartedly with no conviction behind his running more of a token gesture at times instead of going for it. Once he opens up he’s decent for pace but rarely shows it due to the lack of energy (or desire) he puts into his movement. Pace is good when he shows it but stamina is questionable along with his attitude and desire.


There’s a big question mark here. Joe will think he does enough and he works hard, but in reality, he does it in spits & spats. We see that he doesn’t sprint wholeheartedly and he lacks desire and work-rate on many occasions, this lets him down and we don’t think he knows how this looks to the scout. We will show this in the meeting (with evidence-based clips). We are not saying Jay doesn’t work hard as on many occasions he does but not enough and not consistently enough. Joe jogs into situations and is very flat-footed on many instances where he is not ready to receive or challenge for the ball (evidence-based clips to be shown). Work-rate is essential now for most players as the game has got faster and the demands are more for every player regardless of position. We have work to do in this area mainly fitness and stamina once these are reached the work ethic will be easier, as once you get fitter you will have more desire, once you have more desire, then you will be more involved in the game, once you are more involved your game will improve and you will stand out.


It has to come into question due to the lack of work-rate! But his attitude to other areas was good as he protected the ball when he had to, he drove with the ball once he had it and he had no qualms when players challenged him or tackled him even if it was a foul on himself he just got up and got on with it (that’s a good attitude). So on the ball, everything looked good off the ball, we need to work on it in other areas. The word desire comes into it now, there is a big difference when someone who has the desire and then someone who does not. Unfortunately, this is showing in your body language. Again something we will talk about deeply so it can look different when you’re playing. Attitude to get on the ball, attitude off the ball, attitude to running, attitude to dropping and defending. There are many areas we are going to go through in our meeting to get this fixed again with evidence-based clips to show you what’s right and what’s wrong. We liked the way there was no aggressive arguing with the ref or to their players but a little more aggression would help your game in many areas (evidence-based clips to be shown).


Technically decent room for improvement but in general very good. Hold-up play and lay-off’s very good as he can see movement around him with good little touches. His first touch was good and he was well balanced when on the ball. Right-footed didn’t show anything off his left in the 3 games we watched. Doesn’t back out of tackles and puts his foot into every challenge, some he wins some not so but again in general good. No heading was shown but his shooting looked good especially when he had his back to the goal as he has good technique for rolling players and spinning them to get a shot off. Passing short was good and he did a couple of longer ones which reached their targets but nothing special in long passing. In general, has good technical ability but needs to add more tools to his armory to be more of a threat.


Showed some intelligence at times but also showed a lack of intelligence. Played as a lone striker for most parts of these games and needs to understand how to run the line better and have better movement when reading the game. We said he had some good lay-off’s but he needs to improve his timing and movement when running into spaces and read the game better. By reading the game better will make a massive difference (we will show you this in the clips in our meeting). By playing the lone striker, movement and understanding space is vital and at the moment that needs working on as we need to improve your game knowledge and start to make better decisions in positional play by understanding what the midfielders can do and understanding where to run as at times, we ran in the wrong areas to the situation that was opening up. (This will be shown in the clips)


Interesting game and performance. Joe has the making of a decent striker that’s why he’s at a professional club. But from our observations, there is a lot where we can help him as at the moment he’s a work in progress as he’s only 15. There are lots of good points and good areas of play but also a lot of room for improvement. Communication looked questionable as obviously, we can’t hear him but we can see communication in body language and it didn’t look as strong as it could be (we will talk about that). The main area is attitude (But not in a bad way) we are talking about attitude off the ball and attitude when on the ball as there are areas we can improve. Psychological aspects come into this as his desire is not what it should be and we need to improve this. At the moment we have half a good player (but that’s what you should have at this age) the other half needs working on but thing at a time as we must not over-complicate this.
