The scout 

Ronan knew a Premier League scout was in the crowd. His coach had warned him about it. He also knew that it wasn’t just any scout from any team: it was a United scout. Ronan played for a well known boys’ team near Dublin. In the past twenty years, six boys had gone from playing for his team to representing the Republic of Ireland in the World Cup.
