Scott Robert Anson (born 29 April 1989) is a Scottish professional football player who is currently with Cumnock Juniors in the West Region of the Scottish Junior Football Association.


Anson was a product of the youth development system at Hamilton Academical. He made his senior debut aged 16 for Hamilton, coming on as a substitute in a 1–0 victory over Stranraer on 28 March 2006.[1] At the end of that season he was snapped up by Kilmarnock.

In August 2008 he signed a loan deal with Montrose until December, then in January he moved on loan to Annan Athletic. Anson made his debut for Kilmarnock as a substitute in a 3–1 defeat against Heart of Midlothian on 4 April 2009.[2] Anson left Kilmarnock at the end of the 2008–09 season and he signed for Annan Athletic.[3]

His contract with Annan was cancelled after the 2009/10 season by mutual consent, with Anson citing a desire to return to full-time football as the reason.[4] After periods on trial with Galway United and Clyde in the summer of 2010, Anson moved into the Junior game with Bo'ness United in November of that year.[5]

He has since played for Petershill, Neilston Juniors, Shettleston and returned for his second spell at Cumnock Juniors in June 2016.[6][7]
