Scott Roderick Marshall (born Edinburgh 1 May 1973) is a former professional footballer, who played as a full back. He is currently Youth Team Manager for one of his former clubs, Brentford.

Playing career

Marshall is the son of former Hearts and England under-23 goalkeeper Gordon Marshall and the brother of Gordon Jnr. who played in goal for Celtic and Scotland. He started his playing career at Arsenal and broke into their first team at the age of 19, winning 5 Scotland under-21 caps. He scored his only goal for the Gunners in their 2-0 victory over Newcastle United in March 1996[1] and at the end of that season was voted as the Gunners' Young Player of the Year by the supporters.

In seven seasons with Arsenal he only made 25 appearances, spending spells on loan at Rotherham United and Sheffield United.[2]

In August 1998, Dave Jones signed him for Southampton on a free transfer. Saints thought they had made a transfer coup, but Marshall soon showed why Arsenal let him go, scoring an own goal in his debut against Leeds United in a 3-0 defeat on 8 September 1998, repeating this 4 days later in a 4-0 defeat at Newcastle United. He never appeared again for Saints and went out on loan to Celtic where his only appearance was in the 'Old Firm' derby with Rangers in May 1999 when he ended up on the wrong end of 3-0 scoreline.

Marshall then joined Brentford in October 1999 for a fee of £250,000. Unfortunately, after scoring yet another own goal in his third appearance for the Bees, he then suffered back problems which caused him to miss most of the 2001-02 season. After battling his way back to fitness, he at last gained regular first team football making a total of 94 appearances for the Bees, scoring seven goals.

In November 2003, he became Tony Adams' first signing as Wycombe Wanderers manager when he was brought on to shore up their defence. At the end of the 2003-04 season, he was re-signed on a non-contract basis, but on 27 August 2004 he announced his retirement from the professional game.

After retiring, he took up a youth coach role at Brentford in 2007.
