Scott David Boden (born 19 December 1989) is an English professional footballer who plays for Inverness Caledonian Thistle as a forward.


Boden was born in Sheffield. In 2008, Boden was loaned out from Sheffield United to play five matches for IFK Mariehamn in the Finnish Premier Division.[2] Boden left the Åland islands for England and Chesterfield after his stint at the Mariehamn based club.[3]

In October 2011 Boden moved to Macclesfield Town on a one-month loan.[4]

He was offered a new one-year contract by Chesterfield in May 2012 which Boden accepted.[5] On 31 January 2013, having struggled to get regular football at Chesterfield, Boden moved on loan to Conference Premier side Alfreton Town until 20 April.[6] After three goals in thirteen appearances Boden was recalled two weeks early following an injury to Marc Richards.[7] He made one further appearance for Chesterfield following his loan, before being released at the end of the season.[8]

On 29 July 2013, following a successful trial period, Boden signed for former club Macclesfield Town on a permanent basis, penning a one-year contract.[9]

Following a successful season which saw Boden score 18 goals for Macclesfield in the Conference Premier he was signed by FC Halifax Town on 1 July 2014.[10]

On 13 July 2015 Boden joined League Two club Newport County on a one-year contract. He made his debut for Newport on 8 August 2015 versus Cambridge United. Boden scored his first competitive goal for Newport on 11 August 2015 versus Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Football League Cup first round. He scored his first league goal for Newport on 15 August 2015 in a League Two match versus Stevenage. On 5 December 2015 Boden scored the only goal in a 1–0 win over Barnet in the FA Cup 2nd round,[11] which saw Newport County make the 3rd round of the FA Cup for the first time since 1986.[12] Boden finished the season as Newport's top scorer with 15 goals in all competitions.

At the end of the 2015–16 season, Boden was offered a new contract by Newport but he chose to move on to Inverness Caledonian Thistle on a three-year deal.[13]
