Scott named as Scotland Player of the Year

Scotland Rugby League have revealed that Batley Bulldogs back David Scott has been named as Scotland Player of the Year.

The utility back received the award from his club coach John Kear, who coached Wales against Scotland in last year’s European Championship, on Sunday.

Scott, who originally hails from Stirling, is a product of the Easterhouse Panthers club in Glasgow.

He came through the ranks at Hull KR‘s academy, before moving to Featherstone Rovers and Doncaster.

Now at Batley, Scott has won 13 caps for his country, and played a full part in the Scots’ 2013 World Cup campaign.

“Dave has been excellent for Scotland against Wales and continued that form for Batley,” said Kear.

“I’m delighted for him to win this. He’s showing the qualities I’d seen in him over the last couple of years in internationals and in the Championship now he’s with me at Batley.

“It was great for the Batley fans to see him win the trophy and to be able to give him the applause he deserves.”
