Target Scouting was founded by Luke Griffin and Jeroen Tegelaers during the first lockdown in April 2020. Our original mission was to show the process of scouting a player by making match reports before eventually putting together a player report, based on the match reports. In addition to that, we wanted to develop young, talented writers and give them a platform to showcase their talent. This has led to multiple writers getting a job in the footballing world. After Luke Griffin left Target Scouting because he got offered a professional role at Scottish club Hibernian FC, Jeroen eventually continued the project in December 2021 together with Josse van Bakel.
At the current day and age, Target Scouting is focusing on recruitment and scouting more and more. This is done in the form of a few series, such as our ‘Scouting for …’ series, in which we recommend players to clubs. We have also done threads about a possible Mazraoui (Ajax) or Grimaldo (Benfica) replacement. In these threads, we used data and video to find a replacement for Mazraoui/Grimaldo.
When Target Scouting hit 10.000 followers, we made a 10.000 followers special to celebrate this amazing milestone. In this magazine, we did what Target Scouting does best: we covered as many unknown players from smaller countries. You can find the link of the magazine here.
Target Scouting is ready to take the next step and work together with clubs, agencies or players. We can offer multiple services and would like to get in touch with you. Get in touch with us by sending us an e-mail to: targetscouting1 @ gmail.com
