There are likely to be further appointments to the roles of head of development and head of medicine. Fallows was at Bolton before moving on to City where he was key to building the club's international scouting infrastructure using state-of-the-art technology. "My role is primarily to co-ordinate all aspects of our scouting department, which includes liaising with scouts, fixture planning, managing the constant stream of reports coming in and effectively linking everything together," Fallows explained while in charge of City in 2010.
"The traditional role of a scout, where they went to a match and kept all the knowledge in their head rarely exists in modern day scouting structures. "That change is reflected by the way tools like ProScout7 (the football'couting database) are used.
"We have a fantastic team of scouts whose expertise goes beyond making player assessments at matches. "We ensure they have the best tools to be the most productive they can be. "This is all geared up to ensure that those hidden gems are identified by us ahead of rival scouting operations."
