Blonde-haired Scott, brother of Brentford forward Andy, made an immediate impression after signing for Fulham in January 1996. His selfless performances up front were a key part of the Whites’ improvement in the spring and he scored ten goals in 49 appearances as Micky Adams’ side won promotion out of the bottom tier in 1997. He stayed at Fulham for another year but eventually found first-team football hard to come by as Ray Wilkins splashed Mohamed Al-Fayed’s millions.
Scott joined Rotherham United for £50,000 in November 1998 and stayed for seven years, becoming a defensive stalwart. He won two promotions with the Millers and is now the club’s head of recruitment. He had stints at Oldham Athletic, Macclesfield Town and Halifax before retiring in 2008.
He quickly went in coaching, taking over jointly with his former Rotherham team-mate Paul Hirst at Ilkeston Town, where they won promotion from the Conference North. The duo moved on to Boston United in May 2008 winning another promotion from the Conference North as well as lifting the Northern Premier League Challenge Cup and the Lincolnshire Senior Cup. Scott and Hirst spent two and a half years at Grimsby but promotion eluded them before the Mariners sacked the former Fulham man for reasons that were never made public.
He has worked for Rotherham since 2016 after a spell as a radio pundit and also works in the Football Association’s talent identification education programme.
