Scottish FA role for ex-Borough boss Wilson

Former Eastbourne Borough boss Garry Wilson didn’t take long to find a route back into football.

Wilson, who was sacked by Boro’ last month, is working for the Scottish FA as one of their scouts.

Part of Wilson’s re-mit is to look out for emerging talent across the country. He will also be attending league matches, including Premiership, compiling reports on players which are sent to Scottish FA national team scout Mick Oliver who reports directly to Scotland International boss Craig Levein.

The position of scout was previously filled by former Brighton and Hove manager Mark McGhee who is now in charge of Bristol Rovers.

Last week Wilson was running the rule over potential Scottish players at AFC Wimbledon.

On Wednesday night he was at Crawley v Morecombe and Saturday he expects to attend Brighton v Ipswich Town at the AMEX Stadium.

“I’m very pleased to be doing the role. I was contacted by Mick when he heard I was out of work and it’s great to be working for the Scottish FA. It also allows me to keep my options open. If a suitable managers job came up I could consider it but in the mean time I’m more than happy working for the Scottish FA.”

Wilson admits he has received a few managerial offers but nothing as yet has tempted the ex-Boro man back into management.

“I received an offer straight away but I didn’t quite feel it was right for me.

“I have spoken to a few clubs and there are a couple of offers for the start of next season but we will just wait and see.”
