Scott Bevan (born 19 September 1979 in Southampton, England) is an English footballer and currently plays as a goalkeeper for League 2 side Torquay United.

Football career

Bevan started his football career with Southampton as an associated schoolboy player before turning professional in 1997. He never made a first team appearance for Southampton although he did get experience out on loan at Ayr United, Stoke City, Woking (on two separate occasions[1][2]), Huddersfield Town[3] and Wycombe Wanderers[4].

In March 2004, Bevan joined Milton Keynes Dons from Southampton and went on make 19 appearances over two seasons. Out of favour at the start of the 2005-06 season, he trained with Scarborough with a view to a possible loan move in October 2005[5]. However, later that month he joined Conference National side Tamworth on loan [6]. He put in memorable performances in Tamworth's FA Cup run whilst on-loan with The Lambs[7], which included victories over league sides Bournemouth and Hartlepool United and two ties against Stoke City in the third round. However, his career and life were turned upside down after he sustained a serious kidney injury in a league fixture at Forest Green Rovers in January 2006[8]. After undergoing an operation to remove a kidney[9] that left many thinking he might never play competitive football again, Bevan showed remarkable recovery and resilience to once again make himself available.

Bevan was signed by Kidderminster Harriers in August 2006[10], despite Tamworth's interest in the talented goalkeeper[11].

In January 2008, and after 18 months at Aggborough, Bevan was signed by Shrewsbury for an undisclosed fee, in a deal that saw Chris Mackenzie move in the opposite direction[12].

In September 2008, Bevan joined Torquay United loan as cover for their injured first choice keeper Michael Poke, himself on loan from Southampton[13]. For the second time in his career he helped a non-league side reach the third round of the FA Cup[14]. He signed an 18-month contract with Torquay on 28 December 2008[15].
