Northern Ireland can boast a new FIFA Licensed football agent with Leroy McCourt successfully passing his exam at the Irish FA Headquarters recently. With a worldwide pass-rate of only 10%, Leroy has become only the tenth FIFA Licensed Football Agent in Northern Ireland.
Leroy, who is the brother of Northern Ireland International Patrick McCourt, said that this his journey to become an agent has been a natural progression. “Like most kids, I played football in the street growing up, eventually training with Foyle Harps who I played for occasionally. I have played and coached for a number of years and this has given me a great understanding of the game.
“I have scouted for a few teams over the years including Rochdale, Barnsley, Bolton and Glasgow Celtic, working closely with top scout Matt Bradley whose knowledge of the game over here is enormous. I have been working as a football consultant for the past six months and I have already acquired a number of talented players” said McCourt.
With a contact network spanning throughout Europe, Australia, the USA and Asia, Leroy is determined to make a difference to footballers who want to try to make a career out of the game. “For me, there are too many good players who never fulfil their true potential for various reasons, but I believe that I can help to change that and I assure anyone that wants me to represent them that I’m honest, hardworking and knowledgeable about the game. I would love to help some of our younger better players achieve their aspirations” continued McCourt.
