Bio Extra

In June 2008, Ian McCall handed the under 17s striker an apprenticeship deal, promoting him to the under 19s. Scott spent 3 months on loan at Maybole Juniors during season 2009-10. He returned to Firhill in time for the latter stages of the Youth League Cup where a winners medal was earned. In May, 2010, Thistle defeated under 19 Youth Division Champions Livingston 3-2 in the Final at Bankton Mains Community Complex, the home of Muirieston United, in front of over 200 spectators, as the SFL report told:


Livi opened the scoring in four minutes when Dean Cummings scored. Howver, two goals in the space of three minutes put the Firhill club ahead when firstly Scott Tully equalised and then Kieran Burns put the Livingston 'keeper under pressure and knocked the ball home to put Thistle ahead. 11 minutes into the second half, Livi's Chris Malone scored a magnificent goal from fully twenty yards to set up an exciting finale and Thistle had to thank their 'keeper, Ryan Scully, who pulled off some tremendous saves to thwart the West Lothian club going ahead. Then in the 77th minute, Thistle were awarded a penalty when a Livingston defender was adjudged to have handled the ball inside the box and Kieran Burns scored his second goal of the game from the resultant spot kick. Thistle had to withstand some late pressure from Livingston but they held on to lift the trophy.

That proved to be the highlight of his Thistle career, and just a couple of months later he had signed to the Stirling University set-up, where he was a student until 2014.
