Midlands Hurricanes have announced that Dave Scott has signed for the 2022 League 1 campaign.

Scott will be reprising the role he had with Coventry both on and off the field for the Midlands Hurricanes with a new deal as player and assistant coach.

The former Batley full-back originally joined Coventry ahead of the 2021 season as player/coach. 

He will continue in that role for the newly rebranded Midlands Hurricanes in 2022.

The League 1 side played their first game as Midlands Hurricanes in a pre-season friendly against York earlier this month.

Scott has won 12 caps for Scotland.

Owner Alan Robinson on Dave Scott

Midlands Hurricanes owner Alan Robinson said: “Dave Scott is a talisman. He is one of our stand-out performers on the pitch and added a new dimension in his half-back role.

“He led us forward in many ways, especially in games against tough opponents when we dug deep and turned the tables late on.

“His leadership and experience also transferred off the field and he won the heart of many fans.

“His re-signing is hugely important and exciting as coupled with some of our other new signings, it gives us a level of experience in the squad we have never had before.

“I can’t wait to see everyone in action over the coming months starting with our historic cup match next Sunday against Rochdale Hornets.”
