Bury-born Scott has come through the ranks at City, from the junior side Midas right through the "B", "A" and reserve teams before making his first-team début as a 60th-minute substitute for Maurizio Gaudino at Nottingham Forest on 6th May 1995. His favourite past City player is Rodney Marsh; "he was pure magic and when he was in possession there was always the chance of something unusual happening." At Mount St. Joseph School in Bolton, Scott was part of a successful team in which he had a free rôle; the team were the English Catholic 5-a-side champions and twice Bolton champions. He also played for the Bolton town team, who were the Greater Manchester champions. Scott was also a good sprinter, winning several gold and silver medals for Bolton district. At weekends he played for Little Lever Juniors, who were the Bury League champions three times, won three cups and several five and seven-a-side competitions. He scored on his début for Midas and also in his first full "B" team match against Blackburn in November 1990. He is usually employed as a winger these days.
