SCOTT Brown has now completed the signing of a new one-year deal with the Mariners.
The midfielder originally joined the Mariners last summer, bringing both experience and energy to the side.
Born in Cheshire, Scott began his career in the youth team at Everton alongside Toto Nsiala before moving to Bristol City in August 2004, impressing there and winning PFA Fans’ Player of the Month in September 2006 before going out on loan to Cheltenham.
He joined Cheltenham permanently in 2007 but struggled for game time and went out on loan to Port Vale, eventually signing for them too and scoring on his debut against Wycombe Wanderers.
After a short stint back at Cheltenham and joining Town on trial for a match against Winterton in 2010, he spent a season at Morecambe before moving onto Fleetwood and then York City.
He came on as a first half substitute in the Minstermen’s Conference play-off final win against Luton Town at Wembley before a short spell at Macclesfield and then a season at Chester, where he won the Conference North Title.
Southport was his next destination, where he was named captain and helped keep them up before his performances caught the eye of Paul Hurst.
Scott’s first goal for the club was a thunderbolt in the 7-0 victory over Alfreton Town on 25 August 2014.
We can confirm that Paul Hurst is speaking to new players too. The Town boss met with an unnamed player this afternoon.
