Key appointments made to recruitment department

31 May 2017

NORWICH City are delighted to confirm the appointments of Chris Badlan and Kieran Scott to lead the Club’s recruitment department.

Badlan joins as Head of European Scouting, while Scott takes up the Head of Domestic Scouting position.

The pair both worked with City’s Sporting Director Stuart Webber at Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Scott having most recently been part of Sean Dyche’s scouting system at Premier League side Burnley.

Speaking to, Webber said: "The idea has been to try and split the scouting department in two in terms of responsibility and accountability.

"Kieran will head up the UK, with the Academy filtering into that. His background has predominantly been youth recruitment.

"Having someone coming from the youth side into the first team is great when we’re looking to develop young and hungry players.

"With Chris, he’s always had a real firm handle on Europe. His knowledge of foreign players is pretty much encyclopaedic.

"We’ve spoken about being open-minded in terms of who we sign. That includes foreign players and Chris has a really strong working knowledge of this level.

"They both know how I work, which is important. When you have people who understand the methodology it helps."
