Biographical Text

Scott Daniels, signed from Colchester United, made over a hundred league appearances for Exeter City between 1991 and 1995 before a brief spell with Northampton Town. He later became an osteopath. 

After trials for Arsenal and West Ham United, Scott became a trainee with Colchester United in 1986 and, having made his debut in April 1988, signed professionally in June 1988 ahead of making 73 Football League appearances in addition to a season spent with the club in the Conference. 

With new Exeter City manager Alan Ball having briefly worked at Colchester, Scott became one of his first signings upon joining the Grecians for £50,000 in August 1991. Making his debut in the opening day 3-6 defeat at West Bromwich Albion, Scott appeared in 117 league games (scoring seven times) over the following three-and-a-half seasons which saw the club relegated from the third-tier and struggle at the level below. 

Not having always enjoyed the best of luck with injuries, Scott left St James’ Park for Northampton Town in January 1995 and made just eight more Football League appearances before his professional career finished at the age of twenty-six. Continuing in non-league football, Scott played for Dover Athletic, Ramsgate and Folkestone Invicta ahead of training as an osteopath and opening a practice in Maidstone.
