Name: Steve Wisdom
Years Experience in Scouting: Newbie (though been unofficially doing it for years).
Current Position: Freelance
Past Experience: Previous work is all outside of football as an IT Systems Analyst or more recently at Mechanical and Electrical Consultancy and Maintenance company where I am still a shareholder.
Key Skill Areas: Player/Opposition Reports
Courses Taken: FA Talent ID L1, PFSA L1 & L2 Opposition Reports and Talent ID, PFSA Level 3 Advanced Reporting, IPSO Level 1 Talent Id and Level 1 in Football Scouting, S4Scouting.com Recruitment and Player Scouting Workshop Level 1,2 & 3. FA Licenced Intermediary - IMS004016 with enhanced DBS
Bio: Long suffering Charlton Athletic supporter. Love what you do and do what you love! That's what they say anyway. The aim is to become an ethical Football Intermediary but I have always enjoyed watching football and all levels in the hope of spotting the next big thing. I am currently working to build my experience as a scout as I feel that is an essential part or being an intermediary - if someone doesn't know what they are looking for then how can they accurately represent players.
I played in goal at district level and was attached to a couple of league clubs for around a year but nothing came of it.
Outside of Football: I am married and have two beautiful children. I was born and raised in Kent though was on-loan to Essex for 7 years in previous employment. I enjoy travelling and family holidays.
