Date of birth
Scott had begun his career in non-league football before turning professional with Lincoln City in 1990.
Loan spells at Gateshead and Boston United and then Conference side Wycombe Wanderers – Whom he helped to two FA Trophy wins and promotion back into the Football League – led to a dramatic return to league football with top flight Swindon Town, with whom he scored four Premier League goals against Ipswich, QPR, Liverpool and Southampton in the Robins’ only top tier campaign.
Short spells with Stoke City and then Norwich City followed before loan stints at Bournemouth, Watford and back at Adams Park, all prior to arriving in Reading.
Signed from Wycombe Wanderers in March 2009, he played his last game for the Chairboys in a 2-1 defeat to the Royals at Madejski Stadium before making his Reading bow a week later against Manchester City.
Scott got off to a goal scoring start, scoring a late consolation goal for ten-man Reading in a 3-1 home defeat to Shaun Goater’s City, and the Londoner bagged another late goal in our 2-1 loss at Gillingham only days later.
Unfortunately for Scott, goals dried up the following season, scoring only four League One goals and then one more the season after before he moved on to Colchester United and then back into the non-league game with Windsor & Eton.
