James Scott (born 30 August 2000) is a Scottish professional footballer who plays for Hull City as a forward.

Career[edit]

Motherwell[edit]

Scott made his senior debut for Motherwell on 21 April 2018, as a late substitute away to Ross County in the Scottish Premiership.[1] He had already played for the club's under-20 team in the Scottish Challenge Cup, making his first appearances aged 15.[2][3]

On 15 February 2019, he signed a new contract, keeping him at Motherwell until 2022.[4] He started his first game on 24 February, in a 4–1 defeat against Celtic.[5] During that match Scott failed to return the ball to the opposition after an injured player had received treatment, and instead took a shot that led to Motherwell's goal.[5][6] On 27 April 2019, Scott scored his first senior goal in Motherwell's 4–3 win at home to Dundee.[7]

By the end of January, Scott had scored six goals in 28 appearances for Motherwell during the 2019–20 season.[8] Motherwell accepted an offer from Hull City for Scott on 31 January 2020.[8]

Hull City[edit]

Scott signed a 3.5 year contract with Hull City on 31 January 2020, with the club also having the option of extending the contract by one year.[9] During his first training session with Hull, Scott suffered an ankle injury that is expected to prevent him from playing for the rest of the 2019–20 season.[10]

International[edit]

In August 2019, Scott was called into the Scotland under-21 squad, for the European under-21 Championship qualifiers against San Marino and Croatia,[11] and he went on to make his debut as a substitute against San Marino.[12][13]
