Tommy Miller has returned to Victoria Park to take up a role as Recruitment and Scouting Co-Ordinator at the Club.
The vastly experienced Miller previously spent twelve years with Pools, helping to set up the Club’s Centre of Excellence as Youth Development Officer before moving on to become Chief Scout.
He left The Vic in the summer of 2009 and has most recently been working as a scout for Queens Park Rangers, having spent two seasons in a similar role under Tony Mowbray at Middlesbrough.
Miller replaces Ian Moore, who left his role as Pools’ Chief Scout at the end of last season, and he’s thrilled to be back at the Club to work alongside Craig Hignett.
“I’ve enjoyed my time at QPR but I’m really pleased to be back at Pools and looking forward to getting stuck in,” he told us.
“I will be working alongside two other scouts at the Club and we’re also looking at the possibility of taking on another one too.
“It will be my responsibility to ensure that we have all the information we need on teams that we’ll be coming up against, as well as making sure we are keeping an eye on any potential transfer targets.
“We’re also investing in the latest and most up-to-date online scouting solutions to make sure we’re doing the job properly and give ourselves the best chance of success.”
Miller – father of former Pools star Tommy Junior - is moving in to his 42nd season in football having also served in posts at Oldham Athletic, Tranmere Rovers, York City and Portsmouth.
