Age: 21

Now in his second spell at County, left-back Scott is another former Northwich player, who fought his way back to Edgeley Park in the summer of 2016 after just nine months away. He has been reunited with James Gannon having enjoyed an incredible time under the same manager at Vics last season, reaching the Play-Off final, storming through SEVEN rounds of the FA Cup, coming within five minutes of causing an upset against League Two side Northampton Town and being named in the Evo-Stik North Team of the Year. 

Scott initially joined Vics on a month-long loan deal in August 2015, before taking the brave decision to tear up his contract in order to sign a season-long deal with James Gannon's side. As a youngster,Scott spent time at Blackburn, Burnley and Preston, but was released from Deepdale as a 16-year-old. He went to Myerscough College, where he did a Level Three BTEC Diploma in Football Studies, before taking a coaching qualification. He signed for former County boss Ian Bogie in August 2013, on the recommendation of Alan Lord, having been a member of Myerscough College's ECFA National Championship-winning squad. He went on to make 72 appearances for the Hatters, scoring three goals during his first spell at the club, attracting scouts from the likes of Blackburn Rovers and Norwich City.
