RUFC - Potted History of Andy Scott

RUFC - Potted History of Andy Scott

Rotherham United sacked Manager, Andy Scott this afternoon after less than twelve months in charge.

Thirty-nine year old Scott joined the Millers on 13th April last year, after Millers Chairman, Tony Stewart had dismissed Ronnie Moore a month earlier.
Scott, who was signed by Mr Stewart just two months after being sacked by Brentford, had a three year contract with the Millers.

Scott began his professional footballing career with Sheffield United and while with the Blades had loan spells with both Chesterfield and Bury. He moved to Brentford in November 1997 before moving to Oxford in 2001. He finished his career with Leyton Orient, for who he scored ten goals while not quite playing fifty games, but was forced to retire due to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

He stayed with Orient as Youth Coach and in May 2007 was appointed Assistant to Terry Butcher at his former club Brentford. In December Scott was named caretaker manager before being appointed Manager in January 2008, signing a five year deal. In his first season there he led the Bees to the League Two title and was named the BBC London Manager of the Year. He was sacked from Brentford in February 2011 after a four-one defeat by Dagenham and Redbridge.

While with the Millers he was awarded the League Two Manager of the Month in August last year, but, after that results dipped and he leaves the Millers after a two-one defeat to Oxford at the Kassam Stadium and in eleventh place, eight points from a play-off position.
