Scott Brown was player-goalkeeping coach at Exeter City between June 2021 and November 2022. Registered in more of a back-up capacity, Scott played five first-team games whilst at City.
Scott was a veteran of over 500 senior games in England and Scotland when he arrived at Exeter City in 2021. After playing in his youth for Wolverhampton Wanderers, Welshpool Town and Bristol City Scott made his Football League debut with Cheltenham Town in January 2006. This was the start of an eight-year stay at Whaddon Road during which time Scott played 282 games for the club.
Moves followed to Abedeen (2014 to 2016) and Wycombe (2016 to 2018). After a slow start at Wycombe - when he failed to dislodge Chelsea loanee (and future Exeter ‘keeper) Jamal Blackman - there were loans to Eastleigh and Cheltenham before Scott was an ever-present when Wycombe were promoted to League Two in 2018.
Opting next for a move nearer the family home in Wolverhampton, Scott joined Port Vale where he was an ever-present for three seasons. When released in May 2021, Scott spoke of how shocked he had been by the decision.
It was at this time Scott took up the opportunity of moving into coaching with Exeter City and, when City signed the highly-rated Cameron Dawson on a season-long loan, it was clear Scott’s role would be as cover whilst also working with the club’s younger goalkeepers. However, Scott made his league debut for Exeter on 27 November 2021 at Rochdale when Cameron Dawson was ill. He also played in the first game of 2022/23 at Lincoln City.
Scott remained at Exeter City until November 2022 when he followed Matt Taylor to Rotherham United in the role of goalkeeping coach.
