Biographical Text

Sebastián Scalise, a 23-year-old Argentine, was brought to City by co-owners John Russell and Mike Lewis in August 2002 after apparently showing impressive form with Independiente and Gimnasia La Plata. The reality suggests he had recently been playing in Spain for Dita Zafra.

City registered the player with the Football League and he made his debut for Exeter City reserves against Clyst Rovers on 4 September 2002. He later scored a hat trick in a reserve friendly at Dawlish on 2 October 2002. 

His time at Exeter soon came to an end with John Russell telling the Express and Echo that:

"Scalise wasn't up to standard. It happens - you have to bring people in on trial and see what they are like. We felt he wasn't progressing and it was no good him being away from home when things were not working out."

Sebastián then joined Spanish side Ayamonte and stayed one season before playing for a number of other Spanish clubs including Maracena (2003/04), Martos, Diter Zafra again (2005/07), Sporting Villanueva ( 2007/2008), Imperio, Villanueva again and Miajadas (2010/11).
