At one time Derby County had three of their young players attending the college, but they were not allowed to take part in competitive matches. Of course, the club were financing their education and entitled to make these stipulations. Incidentally, none of the three made the grade with the Derby County first XI.

The area covered by each scout varies, usually depending on how many League grounds are in the vicinity of where their own homes are situated. The majority of scouts are ex-Football League players.
