Graham Scales and fellow
coach Tony Head had worked for Colchester United before being
approached by Roy Massey and Gordon
Bennett to set up a centre for coaching on Norwich's behalf
in the Brentwood area. Gordon Bennett always enthused at the amount
of footballing talent there was in the Essex and East London area
and in his words said, " all we want is our share".
This was set up at the Clearview Centre and both Darel
Russell and Russell Penn attended
Graham later moved to Potters Bar working at Norwich's centre
of excellence there run by Roy Massey. Other coaches were Eddie
Clayton and Les Hawkes. It was a successful centre with Pitshou
Ngopwani, Clayton Fortune, Calum
Mooniaruck, Dean Sinclair, Damien
Batt and Lee Blackburn all attending.
The centre was eventually shut down to FA regulations over the
travelling times for young players and Graham moved on to work
for Barnet. Roy Massey went to Arsenal and Les Hawkes joined Wimbledon.
