Scott Phelan (born 13 March 1988) is an English former professional footballer.

Playing career[edit]

Born in Liverpool, Phelan was a trainee at Everton, captaining the under 18 and reserve sides,[1] until he was released in 2007 without making a senior appearance. He was handed a trial at Bradford City, after which he was handed a one-year contract to become the third young midfielder to join League Two side Bradford City from the Toffees in recent years, following Tom Kearney and Steven Schumacher.[2][3] He made his league debut when he came on as a late substitute in Bradford's 2–1 victory over Wrexham on 25 August 2007.[4][5] He played 15 games for Bradford, 12 of which have been in the league, but the last came in December 2007,[4] before he was one of 13 players to be released on 29 April 2008.[6] He played one more game in the club's final game of the season, four days later, as City lost 2–1 to Wycombe Wanderers,[7][8] bringing his total number of appearances for the club to 16.[4]

After four months without a club, Phelan joined Northern Premier League Division One North-side FC Halifax Town in September 2008.[1] Phelan was handed his Halifax debut a day later in a 7–1 victory over Salford City as a second-half substitute,[9] a role he had for the next three games.[10]

In May 2011 he signed for Kidderminster Harriers after the expiry of his contract with Halifax.[11]

He joined Vauxhall Motors on loan in December 2011.[12] He was released by Kidderminster Harriers in February 2012, joining Vauxhall Motors for two weeks, before joining Altrincham.[13] He quit playing in August 2012 to become a full-time coach at Everton.[14]
