Fleetwood Town are happy to announce that vastly-experienced scout Tim Wright has joined the recruitment team within our Category-Two Academy.
Tim, who was involved with our neighbours Blackpool for five years starting in 2011, where he was instrumental in the success of their Pre-Academy and Foundation Phase recruitment during his time there before earning a move to Premier League giants, Manchester United, soon after.
He then spent the next three years enjoying success as part of the Foundation and Youth Development Phase departments before returning to Blackpool once again, where his knowledge and experience have been key in several successful signings across the Academy in particular the recruitment of scholars.
He now joins the team here at Fleetwood Town, and the Club are delighted to have his knowledge and experience, to help support our ever-growing Category-Two Academy.
On the appointment, Academy Manager Jack Higgins, said: "We are pleased to see Tim join our Recruitment team; he's got vast experience in youth football and feel he'll only benefit what is a really impressive recruitment team we have created over the years.
“We only have a small but loyal team, and it's diverse in its experiences, roles, and responsibilities. We know what we are as an Academy, what we are after, and most importantly know what our scouts are capable of - Tim will only add to that and we are looking forward to working with him."
