Title: Chief Scout
Post by: ronnie21 on Wednesday, July 11, 2018, 15:17:24
So we have appointed a new chief scout, Ben Chorley.  Who was the previous incumbent of that lofty position?

The last one I know of was Sam Jewell who is now U21 recruitment manager at Brighton.

Odd timing. I mean I get that it's an ongoing position, just thought if we needed a chief scout we'd have appointed one more than 4 weeks before season start.

still, anything that makes us better is a good thing. can he register as a player too please :)

 I'd say this was good news... at least a sign that Power is trying to run us as an FL club rather than than trying to get away with a non league structure.  Of course he may be clueless, but at least it's something.

Might have been doing stuff for a while, whilst on gardening leave or suchlike until it could be officially announced.

Given his brush with the law, club prob thought a bit like signing LMc bury the news in an England game.

I did a bare grill once, and set my pubes on fire. Not recommended.
