Another of Southend United's non-league bargains, Scott joined from Essex Senior League outfit Saffron Walden Town in the 2000 close season and made his Football League debut on the opening day of the campaign when he came on from the subs' bench against Brighton & Hove Albion.

He soon earned a regular place in the starting line-up and remained in the Blues' team throughout the season. A left-sided midfielder with an huge amount of stamina, Scott makes up for his small frame with an all-action style, often winning tackles and headers against opponents much larger than himself.
