Richard Scott Player Profile
Debut: Southport (A, 2-3), 02/11/2002
Manager Wayne Turner brought in this former Peterborough utility player on a short-term deal, primarily as cover for Matt Fisher and Sam McMahon as Boro’ hit an injury crisis in early November 2002. He arrived from rivals Telford as a non-contract player, having had League experience at Shrewsbury and Birmingham.
In December 2002, Scott returned to Peterborough to complete the season among Barry Fry’s patched-up Division 2 ranks. His only Boro’ goal was a stunning free kick in the 4-3 home defeat against Luton in the LDV Trophy.
Graham Westley moved to re-sign Scott at the beginning of January 2004 as another injury crisis depleted the squad ahead of a Conference fixture at Hereford United, and with Peterborough only using Scott once during the 2003/04 season – for nine minutes in an FA Cup game against Hereford – the midfielder came to Westley’s aid.
