Burnley Launch Talent Search App
Burnley’s new owners are already making their mark with the launch of an app to scout young talent from around the world. Young footballers can use the app to film themselves performing drills as if they are on trial with the club and upload the footage. The app then analyses the data and compares it to other footage to find the best youngsters to invite for formal academy trials. New Clarets chairman Alan Pace said: “This is a first opportunity for us to introduce new data-led technologies into the football club and promote Burnley to the wider football world by giving aspirational young players an opportunity. With the pandemic currently leading to a suspension of youth football in Lancashire and across the UK, this trial represents an open and inclusive opportunity for football players to complete a set of drills in their own environment that could end with them being scouted by a Premier League club.”
