Global Sports Recruitment, fantastic since day 1! I was very lucky to find them when I was 15 years old and since the day I started working with them they were all anyone could ever ask for. Always available to help, always in contact with the player. They have a great team made up of amazing people and I will be forever grateful for their help getting me to play and study in United States. I hope many more student/athletes trust GSR to get them to reach their goal! I totally recommend it, you won't regret it.

Global Sports Recruitment(GSR) are a different class. The care compassion and individual attention to detail they provide is second to none. Simone, Dave, John and the rest of the team treat you like one of the family. They are always there to answer your concerns or any questions you may have from the first trial to the day you depart for the USA. Providing you with all the information for every step of the way. There are a lot of steps and lots of paper work, there was nothing they weren't able to assist with or point you in the right direction. Having been out in Nebraska for 6 weeks they regularly send emails asking how things are going. I would recommend GSR to any Boy, Girl or family, if you want to explore the opportunity of playing football(soccer) in the USA.Thank you for all that you have helped us to achieve.The Rolfe'sMilton Keynes

All the guys at Global Sports Recruitment (GSR) have been top class from day 1. They provided unbelievable support and guidance to myself and my parents,I couldn't recommend GSR enough to any young player looking to do a scholarship in the states, as they found me a great 4 year NAIA university in Kentucky, which I am enjoying during this life changing opportunity.

Couldn’t be happier with the service we have received from GSR. From the start they have continually kept us informed of the process & steered us in the right direction.This journey also requires a lot of self research which GSR encourages but also supports you every step of the way. These guys have answered messages from us at all times of day and never fail to reply with great advice. Couldn’t have done it without them. Thank you all so much!

GSR were fantastic and responded very quickly to any concerns or questions. They gave us all the info required and coached us through the process. We had many offers and our daughter finally settled on a fantastic college in Illinois. I know we will be supported well in the future when hopefully our daughter secures another scholarship in the US to go to Uni all going well. Thank you to John initially and then Simone who really looked after us and held our hand through every step of the way.

Global Sports recruitment have been great from start to end of my college situation. Right from the start both simone and dave made me feel welcome. Not only did they help me find a great school they also were great with helping me find a transfer school when I decided I needed a new start. They helped me find the perfect fit place for me. They were always attentive and let me know if there was some new guys from their clientele coming to the same school so they could either help me settle in or I could do the same for them. I have now graduated from my four year degree and wasnt sure what was my next step. Simone then reached out to me and told me he might know of a graduate assistant position that would suit me. He didnt have to do this and purely just was trying to help me out, because of this I can now further my education and continue to get great new experiences! I highly recommend gsr for anyone who is considering a move to the USA for college.

GSR have provided me with a great experience and as a result of this I received a number of offers as well as assistance from Dave and Simone during my first semester where I had some slight concerns. I am now about to return for my second semester at a division one university in New York after a very positive first four months.

GSR is fantastic agency that will not just achieve your dream of playing soccer in the US but also for your studies. It is organised by some great people that will always help when you are in need and make you feel so comfortable and there was no doubt in my mind when making my decision that I would be choosing GSR to represent me. I’ve been working with the agency for nearly a year now and I’ve enjoyed every single second. I can’t recommend this agency enough and you’d never look back when making that decision.

Outstanding and excellent agency for young people to achieve their dreams. Simone and his team helped my son to pursue the dream that we as a family did not think could be possible, especially during the pandemic. The support / encouragement was, still, unreal and hard to believe or explain. Simone and the team made the impossible possible, and I would highly recommend GSR. They had given my son life, happiness and overwhelming / exciting dreams that make him shine and last forever. Overall, GSR has changed our lives for the better.

Had the pleasure of working with GSR for three years. In those three years they got me a whole different variety of offers from lots of different states as well as finding me, most importantly , the offers that met my needs and requirements. All of the trials and showcase games were professionally organised and enjoyable which makes it easier to play well! I would highly recommend working with GSR if you want to fly out to the states and start a new and exciting journey as a student athlete. Thank you again to Simone , John and David .

Just wanted to thank Simone and GSR for helping my son Morgan get to the USA. Everything done and dusted during Covid lockdown in 3 months, what an adventure!!Morgan had basically given up on his football after injury and let downs. Simone and GSR helped Morgan get into a great Uni, St Mary’s Texas with coach Johnny Clifford. Coach Johnny has been very supportive and helped Morgan get his hunger back.This summer Morgan is playing in a top franchise at Midland Odessa Sockers in front of over 1500 home fans. Coach Dave Jacobs like coach Clifford has been instrumental in helping Morgan develop as a person as a player.So to any young footballers out there who have fallen out of love of the game due to release, injury etc speak with Simone at GSR. There are plenty of opportunities elsewhere and none better than playing “Soccer” and studying in the USA.Vicki and I will always be indebted to Simone and GSR for allowing Morgan to finally start fulfilling his potential. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇺🇸⚽️

My son Matthew has been in Oregon since December 2020, thanks to GSR. Simone kept us up to date about the offers that had been made and advised us throughout, from sorting out the student visa to choosing the right college. Since arriving in Oregon it has been tricky due to the Covid pandemic, which has prevented us visiting Matt. He has been enjoying training and the college have contacted us to say he is excelling academically with a 4.0 GPA this past term. Thanks GSR for supporting Matt on this journey.

Global Sports Recruitment is honestly the real deal when it comes to pursuing a dream to play soccer and study in the USA. I can’t thank them enough for the all the help they have given me. Compared to other agencies the service is more personal which makes the whole process a million times easier. Even two years on they are still helping me as I am currently in the process of transferring schools, Simone and the team have been awesome in helping me through this. Best agency out there no question

Living a dream. I've always dreamt of playing soccer and living in America and to get the opportunity to do both has been a dream come true. I found an ad on Facebook about soccer trials in Dublin, Ireland which was ran by GSR and initially I came thinking I had no chance of making it to America. With the dedication and the professionalism of the GSR programme, that doubt disappeared. I have been working with GSR for a few years now and I can honestly say they have been so professional with their advice, their setup, their trial and showcase events and I have enjoyed every minute working alongside them. Now settled into Union College, Kentucky, I would like to thank the boys at GSR for working closely with me to ensure that I had offers from college throughout the country and for helping me with professional advice so accept an offer and once again thank you for this amazing opportunity.

GSR is a very professional and reliable service and are there to answer any question you may have. When working with GSR I have found them to be passionate about what they do, working on your profile to make it most appealing to college soccer coaches in the US. After an enjoyable journey with GSR, I am now in the states playing for a top 10 ranked NJCAA institution. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking keep up with their academics, whilst chasing the dream and playing soccer full time in top quality facilities.

I was very nervous starting my journey trying to get a soccer scholarship in the USA before I was introduced to GSR. From the moment I met Simone and David at the trial their consideration and care for each individual was very evident which has continued to make me feel supported, wanted and never afraid to ask for help even after receiving my scholarship.Through the team at GSR I was able to get a D1 scholarship at the University of San Francisco which is quickly turned into the best thing I’ve ever done. I am forever grateful for them and continue to feel supported through their check-in’s on me and updates I give them. My parents and I are also very happy with the professionalism and human decency shown from GSR. I highly recommend going through them to get a scholarship in the United States

From the outset I found GSR to be very professional in the way that they carried out their business.The whole process from initial trial match, interview, etc was made easy and in my case, Dave and Rachel made me feel at ease when they interviewed me and answered all my questions. They obviously have a depth of knowledge concerning the American scholarship programs which is passed onto every player they have. Their use of a video portfolio for prospective coaches is especially beneficial.They have a great setup and attending the various trial matches and the end of year client games is very straightforward.By building up your video portfolio and maintaining your personal profile up to date ensures that what the American coaches see is you performing and playing well on the pitch along with viewing your academic record. As a consequence of this I was approached by a number of American coaches and offered a variety of scholarships which is something I wouldn’t have been able to achieve on my own.During the Covid-19 pandemic they kept in regular contact with everyone, reassuring them that they were under no pressure to go out, kept you up to date re Government guidelines, Visa process, etc.I would certainly recommend GSR to anyone.

I loved working with GSR and they were extremely eager to help me get a football scholarship in the states, they were very supportive throughout the whole journey from trialing for the company all the way up to picking what universities are best. I got plenty of offers from all over the US, My final choice was Upper Iowa University, we're a NCAA division 2 team and the standard of football is very high. I highly recommend using GSR if you are planning on pursuing a future in the states!

We started working with GSR in March 2019. We were really impressed with their knowledge and professionalism.From start to finish working with them has been a pleasure.Simone was always on hand to answer any questions no matter how silly I felt they were.Lucy was offered a number of scholarships but we decided to go with West Alabama.Fearing that her scholarship wouldn’t happen this year due to the Covid pandemic, Simone and team guided us throughout and after successfully obtaining her Visa in Belfast in early August she flew out to West Alabama only a week later.Lucy has settled in really well and although her football season won’t start until January she is enjoying settling into uni life and getting acclimatised with the heat!We would thoroughly recommend using GSR to anyone who is thinking of a sports scholarship in America.

We started working with GSR back in 2019 and have had a great experience from trials to signing with them. Cillian was offered multiple scholarships through GSR and Simone and John were on hand to answer any questions we had. Once we had agreed a scholarship in Kansas they sent through detailed instructions of what we needed to do re visas etc and have been keeping in touch through the Pandemic we are currently experiencing as there have been delays to the process. Cillian has started online college and will join the college onsite in January for the second semester. This is an amazing opportunity and is given Cillian the opportunity to get a degree whilst doing what he loves best - playing soccer. Thank you to all the team - You do help make dreams come true..

Global sports recruitment has helped me and my family out a lot as I was stuck in football trying to find semi pro clubs and decent teams in London to play for as I wanted to play professionally, I have always thought of playing football in another country especially in America it’s always been a dream of mine since I was 16 so when I started to see there advertisement on Facebook and Instagram I read the information about being on a scholarship playing and learning at the same time which was exactly what I needed. Now at the age of 21 I signed my scholarship contract which is the best feeling and proudest moment of my football career I also flew out to Scotland to play with other trialist which was a good feeling and I received one offer there and then. Weeks go past and I started to receive 5 then 7 and I ended up having 11 offers my videos are on YouTube Leon Sterling I recommend any footballer that was stuck like me or if you want to play abroad Global sports recruitment is the place to come to. They work very hard as they are my agents and they make sure that you sign for the best academic and sports university.

GSR has been a very efficient and professional service to help provide football scholarships in the US.I started with GSR in December 2019 at trials to which I passed and progressed into a Recorded Game at top facilities in March 2020. GSR then started forwarding offers from US University's and connected me to the Coaches around April/May. GSR then helped me with what offers were the best for me. GSR also aided through the VISA process which was very useful. I ended up recieving my VISA in early August, then flew out in Mid August to start my scholarship.GSR has been extremely efficient for me, helping me recieve a Scholarship in the space of 9 months. They have answered all our questions and queries within a short space of time. Even with COVID-19, they remained positive about everything. I would recommend GSR's service to anyone who would love to recieve a football scholarship in the US🙌

I have just commenced a soccer scholarship and 4 year degree programme in Campbellsville University in Kentucky, USA. I found GSR very professional and supportive, from trials to showcase games and in communicating with US coaches. Any queries we had were addressed promptly, and the application process went smoothly. There were delays with getting my visa because of Covid, but that was outside everyone's control. I would recommend GSR to anyone considering a sports scholarship in the US.
