Scott Andrew Hogan (born 13 April 1992) is a footballer who plays for Brentford as a striker. He came through the youth system at Rochdale and had two spells with the club.

Club career[edit]


Born in Salford, Hogan began his career as a student at Salford College, studying for a BTEC National Diploma in Sport and playing in college's Football Academy first team,[2] before moving onto the youth academy at League Two side Rochdale in 2009. Hogan received his maiden call into the first team squad for a league match versus Macclesfield Town on 5 December 2009. Awarded the number 35 shirt, he remained on the bench for the 3–0 victory.[3] He was called up for further matches versus Crewe Alexandra and Port Vale in late December 2009 and late January 2010, but failed to make it onto the pitch.[4][5] Hogan was released at the end of the 2009–10 season, having failed to make an appearance for the club.[6] Looking back in 2014, Hogan said "I didn't enjoy football at the time. I couldn't commit to being a full-time footballer and I enjoyed going to college with friends rather than playing football. I wasn't prepared to make the sacrifices I can now".[7]

Woodley Sports[edit]

Following his release from Rochdale, Hogan dropped into non-league football and joined Northern Premier League Division One North side Woodley Sports in the summer of 2010. He had a prolific spell with the club, scoring 21 goals in 27 league games.[8] Hogan's form led to interest from League Two sides Crewe Alexandra and Stockport County and he departed the club in November 2010.[9]

FC Halifax Town[edit]

Hogan secured a move to Northern Premier League Premier Division side FC Halifax Town in November 2010, linking up with his brother Liam.[9] He made his debut in a West Riding County Cup second round match against Barnoldswick Town on 15 December, scoring the second in a 5–0 victory.[10][11] On 10 January 2011, Hogan featured in a 3–0 Northern Premier League Cup third round win over Bradford Park Avenue, but his inclusion in the team caused Halifax's expulsion from the competition, having been cup-tied after appearing for Woodley Sports in the competition earlier in the season.[12] Hogan slowly broke into the league squad and continued making West Riding County Cup appearances, scoring in the 3–1 quarter-final win over Harrogate Railway Athletic on 1 February and appearing in the semi-final defeat against Guiseley.[13] The Shaymen finished the 2010–11 season as Northern Premier League Premier Division champions and secured promotion to the Conference North for the 2011–12 season.

Wearing the number 39 shirt, Hogan made his first appearance of the 2011–12 season on 29 August, coming on as a 77th minute substitute for Lee Gregory in a 0–0 draw with Boston United.[14] He fell out of favour and failed to appear again until 25 October, when he played the full 90 minutes of a 3–2 win over Hyde.[15] Hogan was named on the bench for Halifax's FA Cup first round proper match versus League One side Charlton Athletic on 13 November, but did not play in the 4–0 defeat.[16] He scored his first goal of the season in a 3–1 West Riding County Cup second round win over Brighouse Town on 30 November.[17] Hogan made three further league appearances for Halifax,[18] the last coming in December 2011,[19] before his departure at the end of the month.[20]

Return to Woodley Sports (loan)[edit]

Hogan rejoined Woodley Sports on loan in November 2010, to maintain his form and fitness.[9] He returned to Halifax on 10 December.[21]

Mossley (loan)[edit]

In August 2011, Hogan joined Northern Premier League Division One North side Mossley on loan, linking up with his former Woodley Sports manager Gareth McClelland.[22] He made his debut on the opening day of the 2011–12 season, scoring in a 2–1 defeat to Ossett Town.[23] He made three further appearances for the club before returning to Halifax.

Stocksbridge Park Steels[edit]

Hogan signed for Northern Premier League Premier Division side Stocksbridge Park Steels in December 2011.[20] Hogan quickly struck up a strike partnership with Jack Muldoon and made regular appearances for the club.[24] Hogan went on trial with Championship side Barnsley in August 2012 (managed by former Rochdale manager Keith Hill) and featured in a friendly against Crewe Alexandra.[25][26] Hogan left the Steels in October 2012, after encountering problems commuting to Stocksbridge from his home in Warrington.[27][28] Hogan made 16 appearances and scored seven goals during the early months of the 2012–13 season.[29]

Ashton United[edit]

In October 2012, Hogan signed for Northern Premier League Premier Division side Ashton United.[28] He scored only one goal in 8 appearances for the club, before departing in March 2013.[29]


On 9 March 2013, Hogan signed a non-contract deal with Conference Premier strugglers Hyde.[30] Awarded the number 22 shirt, he made his debut three days later in a 2–1 victory over Luton Town.[31] He scored his first goal for the club on 16 March, bagging the opener in a 3–0 victory over Dartford.[32] He scored two goals in two games against Wrexham[33] and Barrow in late March and early April.[34] Hogan finished the 2012–13 season with 11 appearances and three goals.[35] Hogan spent two weeks on trial with Championship side Birmingham City in May, though a deal failed to materialise.[36] He left Hyde 9 May.

Return to Rochdale[edit]

On 9 May 2013, Hogan returned to Rochdale, signing a two-year deal.[6] After his return, he said "I've come back, been at home, worked hard in Irlam at the gym and he (manager Keith Hill) has given me another chance now. He knows I have the ability and it's just the physical side which I've worked hard on".[37] Hogan made his professional debut on 3 August 2013, scoring the first of a 3–0 home win against Hartlepool United[38] with a strike that was named as the Sky Sports News Goal of the Day.[39] He began the season in good form, scoring 10 goals in his first 20 league appearances.[40] Hogan scored the opening goal in Rochdale's shock 2–0 FA Cup third round victory over Championship side Leeds United on 4 January 2014.[41] Hogan was the subject of League One side Peterborough United's attention in January, with an offer in excess of £1 million being accepted by Rochdale,[42] but Hogan turned down the move after failing to agree personal terms.[43] Further transfer interest arose from League One high-flyers Wolverhampton Wanderers[42] and Premier League side Sunderland.[44] After having the spotlight put on him by his form, Hogan thanked manager Keith Hill, saying "you can't get anywhere without working hard and I realised that. Now all I want to do is work and work to become the best I possibly can. Keith Hill has given me the platform to do that and I cannot thank him enough".[45] Hill described the player as "a workaholic".[45]

After a run of six games without scoring, Hogan returned to form by scoring a hat-trick against AFC Wimbledon on 8 February.[46] He took his tally to four goals in two games with the equaliser in a 2–1 victory over Morecambe in the following game.[47] Hogan's form did not go unnoticed and he won the League Two Player of the Month award for February.[48] He celebrated the award by scoring his second hat-trick in three weeks against Oxford United on 1 March.[49] He finished the season with 19 goals in 40 appearances helped Rochdale to third place in League Two and automatic promotion to League One.[50] He won further recognition by being voted into the PFA Football League Two Team of the Year[51] and was shortlisted for the League Two Player of the Year award.[52] He was also named in the League Two Team of the Week three times during the 2013–14 season.[53][54][55] It was reported on 11 July that Rochdale had rejected a transfer bid from Leeds United,[56] but the Elland Road club distanced themselves from the report the following day.[57] Rumours about Hogan's departure strengthened when he was left out of the squad for Rochdale's opening 2014–15 pre-season friendly against former side FC Halifax Town on 15 July.[58]


On 21 July 2014, Hogan signed for Championship side Brentford on a three-year contract.[52] The deal was reported to be worth approximately £750,000.[59] Manager Mark Warburton stated that "Scott fits our criteria in terms of age and development and potential. We once again fought off a number of Championship rivals for his signature".[52] Hogan was awarded the number 9 shirt, vacated by Clayton Donaldson. On 25 July, it was reported that Hogan was being troubled by an injury suffered while at Rochdale,[7] limiting him to just two substitute cameos during pre-season.[60][61] Hogan received his first call into a competitive squad when he was named as a substitute for a League Cup second round match versus West London rivals Fulham on 26 August.[62] He made his Bees debut when he came on for Nick Proschwitz after 74 minutes of the 1–0 defeat.[63] Hogan made his league debut for the Bees in the following game against Rotherham United, coming on for Jota after 67 minutes.[64] He suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in his left knee on 82 minutes and was immediately replaced by Nick Proschwitz.[65][66] Hogan underwent reconstruction surgery on 10 September and is expected to return for 2015–16 pre-season.[67]

International career[edit]

Owing to having Irish grandparents from Carlow, it was reported in February 2014 that the FAI were looking into Hogan's eligibility to represent the Republic of Ireland.[68][69]

Personal life[edit]

Hogan's brother Liam is also a professional footballer and the pair played together at FC Halifax Town.[70] Having both studied at Salford College, the brothers returned to take part in the presentations at the 2014 Salford City College Sports Awards.[2]
