October may have come and gone, but the nine players who were selected and signed to play in Scotland will never forget in a hurry. As usually we have scouters – seasoned players and coaches from established leagues in Nigeria and abroad, who usually come looking for young players that are very talented and are seeking out better opportunities to shine. The successful boys numbering nine have already been asked to start making preparations to actually travel to Scotland before the end of the year. Substantiated information that we gathered confirmed that logistics has been set out for them with the sole aim of making VISA procurement at the Scotland Embassy as smooth as possible for them.
But how did it all started? Our players were notified of the scouting for October. We also informed other players who are not part of our League or the Junior team. Most of them were also informed by Friends of Treasures who got the information first hand. All interested players were gathered together and were oriented concerning what scouting is all about especially for those trying it out for the first time. When the day arrived, our guests were ready and the field was available. The boys were grouped to play while the guests watched with keen looking out for the players that will serve them most.
After about three matches has been completed, the players were called together and selection was made.The guest also took time to offer counsels to every other player that participated thereby enriching them with the knowledge that could stand them out in the next scouting.
