Kevin Watson Scott (born 17 December 1966) is an English former football defender. He played over 300 games in the Football League for six different clubs.[1]

Starting his career with Newcastle United in 1984, he spent ten years with the club, playing as captain during the 1991-92 season. A big money move to Tottenham Hotspur followed in 1994. However he did not settle at the club, and instead spent the majority of his three years at the club on loan at Port Vale, Charlton Athletic and Norwich City. He made the move to Norwich permanent in 1997, spending two years at the club before leaving the professional game in 1999, shortly after a loan spell with Darlington.


Playing career

A former youth player at Middlesbrough, he spent just one season with the club before being released.[2] He worked at a paper mill and a lumber factory whilst playing part-time for Durham City.[2] Spotted by Newcastle United manager Jack Charlton, he was part of a youth side that won the FA Youth Cup in 1985, playing alongside the likes of Joe Allon, Gary Kelly, Brian Tinnion and Paul Gascoigne.[2]

Over the next decade he played over 200 games for the club, captaining the club in 1991 and 1992. He signed with Tottenham Hotspur in February 1994 for a fee of £800,000.[2] However he found first-team appearances hard to come by at White Hart Lane and signed on loan for Port Vale,[3] Charlton and Norwich City.

Norwich signed him on a permanent deal in February 1997 for £250,000, but he was only to make 33 first-team appearances for Norwich.[2] On a loan spell with Darlington in February 1999 he played his last professional game. After leaving Norwich later that year he played numerous games for non-league sides Guisborough Town and Crook Town.[2]


After retiring, Scott concentrated his efforts on raising his children and took up work at Loxley driving school.

He has been working as a coach at the Middlesbrough Academy ever since returning to the North-East.[4]
