Scott Barron (born 2 September 1985) is an English footballer who plays as a defender in League One for Brentford. He also played in the Championship and League Two for Millwall, Ipswich Town and Wrexham.
Born in Preston, Lancashire and growing up in St Ives, Cambridgeshire, Barron joined Ipswich Town's academy at the age of ten after being spotted playing locally in St Ives. Adept as left back or a left midfielder, Barron's first involvement with the first team came on 16 March 2004, when he was named as a substitute for a Division One match against Walsall, though he did not play. Barron made his first team debut against Brentford in a 2-0 League Cup first round win in August 2004 and played the full 90 minutes. He was an unused substitute on another six occasions, but a persistent groin injury meant that he missed much of the 2004/05 season. Barron's injury problems continued into the 2005/06 season and he had to wait until December 2005 for his next appearance, when he replaced Darren Currie after 87 minutes of a 1-1 Championship draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers. Barron enjoyed a run of 15 first team appearances during the second half of the season. He was only called into the Ipswich Town squad once during the 2006/07 season and was released in June 2007 after his contract expired.
Barron joined League One side Millwall in June 2007. He made 17 appearances during the 2007/08 season, as Millwall narrowly avoided relegation to League Two. Barron made 16 appearances in 2008/09 and scored the first senior goal of his career in an FA Cup third round replay against Crewe Alexandra on 13 January 2009. He was an unused substitute during Millwall's unsuccessful playoff campaign. In the 2009/10 season Barron made 29 appearances and won the first medal of his career when Millwall were promoted to the Championship after running out 1-0 victors against Swindon Town in the 2010 League One playoff final. Barron had a successful 2010/11 season in the Championship, making 42 appearances and scoring two goals as Millwall finished ninth. His injury niggles returned during 2011/12 season and he played the latter part of the campaign while suffering from a recurring knee problem.
After being allowed to leave Millwall, Barron joined League One side Brentford on 13 August 2012. He made 17 appearances during his debut season with the Bees, before undergoing surgery for a hip joint problem in March 2013. Barron made an additional four appearances for the Development Squad during the 2012/13 season. A highlight of his season was an 80th minute substitute appearance in a 2-2 FA Cup fourth round draw with Premier League side Chelsea at Griffin Park on 27 January 2013. An injury to Jake Bidwell during the opening weeks of the 2013/14 season saw Barron return to the side, though he only managed five appearances before being sidelined with a groin problem. Upon his return from injury, Barron scored his first Development Squad goal in a 4-2 Professional Development League 2 South victory over Charlton Athletic on September 30. With a fit-again Bidwell and stand-in left back Tony Craig ahead of him in the first team, Barron was made available for loan by manager Uwe Rösler in October 2013, but a recurrence of his hip injury prevented a loan materialising. Barron returned to training in mid-December. An injury to Tony Craig meant that Barron received his first call-up into the first team squad in over four months, when he was an unused substitute for a 2-0 win over Port Vale on 11 January 2014. Barron played 71 minutes in a 1-1 Professional Development League 2 South draw with former side Ipswich Town on 14 January, before being brought off for Lewis Lavender. It was his first appearance at any level for the club since a 3-1 Development Squad defeat to Cardiff City on 14 October and he was made available for loan by new manager Mark Warburton the following day. Having overcome his niggling hip problem, Barron returned to full training on 27 February.
