Ex-Dundee United and St Johnstone Man Jason Scotland Scores On Pub Team Debut

Ex-Dundee United and St Johnstone Man Jason Scotland Scores On Pub Team Debut

Jason Scotland joined a list of former professional players in digging his boots out the cupboard to join an amateur team.

Scotland – a name renowned in the Scottish game – had spells with Dundee United and St Johnstone before moving down south where he turned out for Swansea, Wigan, Ipswich and Barnsley.

And after featuring for Hamilton and Stenhousemuir after returning to Scotland, the bulky forward has stepped into grasroots football.

Scotland joined Strathclyde Saturday Morning Amateur Football League outfit Nico’s Bar where he’ll play alongside ex-Rangers ace Bob Malcolm.

And he found the net on his debut in a 4-2 win over Yoker United in the Bespoke Cup.

We’d love to see more ex-professionals following Scotland’s lead and joining the amateur game!
