Scott played his early football with The Rock-Yerong Creek before being recruited to South Melbourne and making his league debut in 1981. The following year the club relocated to Sydney and he took part in the inaugural game for their new city. Injuries restricted his appearances over the years and when he finished in 1989 he had managed just 59 senior games.
After Gary Buckenara was sacked as Sydney's coach in 1993, Scott acted as a caretaker coach for two games.
