Scott Robert Galloway (born 25 April 1995) is an Australian professional football (soccer) player who plays as a fullback for Wellington Phoenix in the A-League.

Born in Perth, Galloway played youth football for the Australian Institute of Sport before making his professional debut for Melbourne Victory in 2013. He moved to Central Coast Mariners in 2016.

Galloway has made numerous appearances for Australia's under-20 and under-23 sides. He played in the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Early life[edit]

Galloway's father, himself a football fan, grew up in Northern Ireland before moving to Australia, where Scott was born.[3] His first club was Gosnells City in Perth, and he initially played in midfield before later moving into the defence.[4] He was also a youth taekwondo champion.[3]

Club career[edit]

Melbourne Victory[edit]

Galloway was one of three Melbourne Victory summer signings of 2013, along with Francesco Stella and Jesse Makarounas. He debuted in the Melbourne derby against crosstown rivals Melbourne Heart on 2 February 2013, a game in which they won 2-1, with goals from Archie Thompson and Mark Milligan. Galloway scored his first goal for the club in a loss to Wellington Phoenix on 2 March 2015.[5]

Central Coast Mariners[edit]

On 19 October 2016, Galloway left Melbourne Victory after failing to secure regular game time at the club and joined Central Coast Mariners.[6][7] He made his first appearance for the club as a substitute in a loss to Brisbane Roar three days later.[8]

In May 2017, the Mariners allowed Galloway to travel to the Netherlands for a trial with Willem II.[9] Three days later, the Mariners announced that Galloway would be leaving the club, although this was said not to be directly related to his Dutch trial.[10]

Wellington Phoenix[edit]

Despite trialing in the Netherlands, on 29 June 2017, Galloway joined Wellington Phoenix on a one-year contract following Rado Vidošić and Darije Kalezić convincing him it would be the best place for him to develop his game.[11]
