250 Andy Scott
Position : Centre half (also played left back)
Played : 1997-98
Appearances : 3
Goals : 0
Like Alan Reeves before him Andy was actually playing in our reserves while still under contract to another club, in his case Cardiff City. An England Youth international he started out with Blackburn but made all his previous League appearances -16- for Cardiff.
He signed for a year in August 1997. He had looked quite useful in the reserves but after Mark Bailey we were wary of expecting too much. A tall rangy player, he made his debut as a sub in the first game at Notts County but thereafter stayed on the bench at best until his full debut at left back at home to Leyton Orient. Despite a decent performance by Andy we lost the game and he didn't get another chance until late in the season away at Rotherham. I think he deserved a few more outings.
Andy moved on to Stalybridge and played there for three years mainly in midfield scoring a spectacular goal against Chester in the FA Cup. He then followed manager Phil Wilson around playing for him at Southport and Lancaster City. He was last heard of at Altrincham in 2007.
