Jack Scott initially joined the dragons on a short term contract whilst the club was hit with an injury crisis. Making an appearance from the subs bench he impressed manager Matt Thomas with a solid display at Right Back. Thomas then made the move permanent and Scott had finally moved out of the lower leagues and into the big time.
Previously at Coedpoeth United and Long Pull FC, he was often played in varying positions all over the pitch and was a real utility player. From his role on the Right side of Midfield and his love of a tackle he was switched to Right Back when a new manager came into the club. He developed throughout his time at Coedpoeth United and eventually took the chance to move up a level and joined cup winners Long Pull FC. Scott coped well in his debut season in mens football at just the age of sixteen.
He joined up with the 12th man team later that year and through a solid performance as a make shift Left Back for the big clash between Buxton FC, Scott helped end Buxtons seven year undefeated title at the Racecourse with a 1-0 win on the day. This was the boost Scott needed to move his career. Reuniting with former team mate and good friend Dyfan Jones who played alongside Scott in the victory at the Racecourse Ground Jones introduced Scott to Wrexham Fans FC and manager Matt Thomas who wasn’t keen on bringing any more players in at first but reluctantly had to bring him into the game due to the injury of a member of the team. Scott stood out in the Right Back position and was quickly signed up by the gaffer.
Scott quickly built up a strong relationship with the team and his confidence grew. Switching to Centre Midfield he managed to score 9 goals in 13 appearances for the dragons. This is Scott’s predominant position now and has been consistantly majestic and amazing ever since whatever position he is asked to play (And he’s been asked to play them all). Attracting interest from big clubs such as Middlesbrough, Arsenal and Celtic the youngster was linked to moving away from the club many times but decided to stick with the club and being quoted as saying:
“I don’t take any notice of any of the rumours that are being printed about me. I am happy here and I am enjoying my football. I couldn’t ask for a better bunch of lads as team mates and many of the lads have gone from being complete strangers to best friends. I’ve never played for a team with such a nice set of players and I was welcomed with open arms into the team. I am fully commited to Wrexham Fans FC and I am loving every minute of being part of this great football club. Long may it continue, I’m Wrexham ’till I die.”
Scott continues to put 100% into every second he is on the pitch and is still catching the eye of some top clubs, winning player of the tournament for Wrexham Fans FC at World Net 2016 but the loyal and committed youngster appears to be going no where.
