"Wycombe fans haven't ruled out a return for 'Scotty' sometime in the future but the likelihood of that being in a playing role becomes less likely with his fall from grace at Reading"
simply a Wycombe legend. In two spells at Wycombe 'Scotty' score numerous vital
goals, whether in cup-ties or league games. Originally signed by Martin O'Neill
from Lincoln City and his first appearance started a remarkable record where he
has scored on his debut for all subsequent clubs. A king-pin in the 1991 and
1993 FA Trophy victories and promotion to the Football League. His goalscoring
antics at the start of the 1993/94 season prompted Swindon Town to shell out
£375,000 for his services and suddenly 'Scotty' was in the Premiership and
scoring at Anfield.
After leaving Swindon, where he played a few games alongside Lawrie Sanchez, there were relatively unhappy times at Stoke City and Norwich City. Having played against Wycombe while on loan at Watford in February 1997, 'Scotty' was back at Wycombe on loan for the final two months of the 1996/97 season and his goals - Blackpool at home in April 1997 being the most significant - help keep The Chairboys in Division Two. John Gregory sealed his services permanently in a cut-price £55,000 move during the summer of 1997 and he continued to add to his goalscoring tally. His eventual departure in March 1999 came as a massive shock. Just days before he had signed a new deal with Wycombe but when Reading came looking, Lawrie Sanchez said we want £250,000 and The Royals were happy to comply. 'Scottys' last game for Wycombe was at Reading - which perhaps more significantly was Sean Devine's debut in a Wycombe shirt. He was placed on the transfer list by Reading Manager Alan Pardew during the summer and eventually joined Colchester United on a month's loan on 13th October. Returned to The U's in March 2001 on a permanent basis but was released on a free before the end of the season.
Moved back into non-League football during the summer of the 2001 with a move to Dover Athletic. Spells at Scarborough and Leigh RMI followed before an ill fated spell at Dagenham & Redbridge where he failed to make a competitive appearance and was loaned to Tamworth. After Dagenham he went on to sign for Windsor & Eton where he played with former team mate Dave Carroll. Moved into coaching shortly afterwards and had spells with the Youth set-up at QPR before time with Chesham United, Northwood and Leighton Town. He was appointed as Manager of Windsor & Eton in December 2007.
