Scott Wootton

I Have Mentioned Him Before In My Scout Thread. My Scouting Thread.


Birthdate: 12 Sep 1991

Birthplace: Birkenhead

Position: Defender

Scott Wootton is a strong central defender, who first broke into the Under-18s side as a schoolboy at the back end of the 2006/07 campaign.

"He's a very reliable central defender," says U18s boss Paul McGuinness.

"Reliability is something you always want from a defender. Scott tends to do the right things and is a good decision-maker on the pitch.

"He gets into the right positions and has a good understanding of safety and risk."

A very vocal player, he has shown signs of developing his burgeoning leadership qualities.

"He looks like he's got good potential to be a good talker and a leader, which you need at the back," says Paul. "He's made a good start and a good impression."

Just Found Abit More News........

Manchester United have trumped Liverpool for teenage prospect Scott Wootton.

The People says the England youth international from the Wirral had been with the Anfield club since he was 12, but he and his family were upset when he was offered only a short-term deal to stay.

Wootton turned down the contract and was immediately picked up by United who offered him the chance to be a professional - after just one run-out in the under-18 side last week.

It is a major slap for Rafa Benitez's club and insiders reveal Wootton left because he thought there were too many foreigners at the club's academy and his way would be blocked.

And the size of his potential was quickly spotted by eager United.

Some Good News Regarding Scott :D

Teenagers Matthew James, Scott Wootton and Oliver Gill all signed professional contracts with United on Wednesday 1 July.

The trio impressed last term in the Reserves and Academy sides, with James, in particular, catching the eye with an impressive goal haul.

The Bacup-born 17-year-old scored six times for the U18s in just 14 appearances. He also found the net four times for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s second-string, including three spectacular efforts from distance.

Scott Wootton’s contract comes on the back of his first full season at United. The 17-year-old defender arrived from Liverpool last summer and has been a model of reliability and consistency at the heart of the Academy defence.

Alongside him for much of the season was Oliver Gill. Gill, 18 and a commanding presence on the pitch, can play in the middle or on the left side of defence. His height also makes him a threat at attacking set-pieces.
