Name: Scott Young
Date of birth: 14th January 1976
Place of birth: Pontypridd, Wales
Height: 6' 1"
Position: Defender

Cardiff City (trainee)

Gavin Tait signed Scott for City at the tender age of 13, and the lad has been a loyal servant to the bluebirds ever since. Eventually signing professional terms at the age of 17 under the management of Eddie May, he has gone on to make 350 appearances for the club to date, scoring 24 goals along the way, most noteably of course being the fantastic 87th minute winner against the then Premier League leaders Leeds United on January 6th 2002. Indeed this, along with his beloved City gaining promotion to the first division last season, ranks as one of the highlights of his career so far.

Married to the lovely Fiona, they have two children, son Connor aged 4, and daughter Lauren aged just 10 months. A proud welshman, Scott has represented his country at B international level on one occasion, but has 5 under 21 caps to his name, he also made 4 appearances with the full Wales squad. His boyhood hero was the welsh goal machine Ian Rush, but his modern day favourite is the french star Zinedine Zidane.

Football is not the only sport Scott has a passion for, his other interests are Golf and Cricket. Although when asked what he plans to do upon retirement from the beautiful game, he expressed his intentions to stay involved in football, but not in a managerial capacity, and when you consider the pressure that goes hand in hand with management, who can blame him!! Whatever Scott chooses to do in the future, we are sure that you will join us in wishing him and his family all the very best for the future, whichever path he takes.

Well, that's the end of our brief look at the man himself. We would like to end this introduction by thanking Scott for ten years of loyal service to Cardiff City, and we sincerely hope that he will be with the club for many more to come.

Good luck Scott!!
