Andrew "Andy" Scott (born August 2, 1972) is a former professional footballer whose clubs included Sheffield United, Brentford and Leyton Orient, England. He is currently manager of Football League One side Brentford. During his playing career, Scott was primarily a striker but also played on the left wing at times. He was forced to retire in 2005 due to heart problems.


Playing career

Scott started his career at non-league Sutton United before being signed by Sheffield United for £50,000 in 1992. After loan spells at Bury and Chesterfield he signed for Brentford for £75,000 in November 1997. He played 143 games for The Bees in all competitions during a five year spell at Griffin Park. Scott moved on to Oxford United, again for £75,000, in January 2001. He finished his career at Leyton Orient before moving into coaching.

Coaching career

After his retirement, Scott landed a coaching role at Leyton Orient. He went on to become youth team manager. On May 9, 2007, Scott was appointed assistant manager at Brentford to Terry Butcher. On 11 December Scott was named caretaker manager of Brentford following the sacking of Butcher. His caretaker spell was a successful one, and he landed the role permanently on January 4, 2008, signing a five-year contract.

His first calendar year in charge was recognised with an award, the BBC London 'Manager of The Year' for 2008.

In his first full season in charge, Scott led the west London club to the 2008-2009 League Two title (English football's 4th tier), confirming the championship with a 3-1 away win at Darlington on the 25th of April.

Scott was awarded the 'Coca Cola League Two Manager of the Month' award for April/May 2009; which recognised his team's title and also the circumstances in which it had been achieved. 4 first choice strikers were hosptalilised in the last 8 games of the campaign.

Scott swiftly moved to purge his squad of players surplus to requirements for the 2009-2010 season, allowing nine out of contract players to seek new clubs.

Scott was runner up of the prestigious LMA Manager of the Year Award for League Two in 2009 after the promotion winning season, losing out to Paul Tisdale of Exeter City.
