Scott started his career alongside his brother, Tony, at first Hertford Town and then Ware, before he earned a move to Cambridge City. He made his name in non-league as a goal-scoring winger and he came to the attention of a number of league clubs. He had trials with three of them and eventually won a move to League Two side Bradford City.
He scored a goal on his full debut but Bradford soon changed manager and Neilson dropped back into non-league, first out on loan to Cambridge United and then signed by Crawley Town, having spent less than 12 months with Bradford. Neilson spent a successful loan spell with the Mariners last year, before joining Blue Square Bet Premier League rivals Luton Town on a short-term contract before his release a few months later.
Scott made 12 appearances for the Mariners, scoring 2 goals.
