Singleton veterans welcome Scott to 100-game club

MILESTONE: Andrew Scott will play his 100th club game for the Singleton Roosters against the Maitland Saints this Saturday.

He has won a senior premiership, captained the AFLHCC representative line-up and taken home an Elliott Davey medal.

Now Andrew Scott will add another milestone to his decorated career when lining up in his 100th club game for the Singleton Roosters against the Maitland Saints at Rose Point Park this Saturday.

He will join a host of current players in the 100-game club including Alex Mitchell, Sam Brasington, Andrew Macpherson, Sam Howard and Donald Hornby-Waring.

“I have seen players from 2008 onwards, he is in my eyes the best to ever play for the Singleton Roosters and probably will be until either of his sons knock him off (if they play for the Roosters),” Mitchell playfully explained.

“It’s been a privilege to play alongside him and learn from him on the field but also massively off the field, the way he goes about life and footy; it’s pretty to watch.”

Scott, who co-captained the Queensland under-21 side in 2007, also played 100+ games for Mount Gravatt prior to his Singleton career.

There he captained the Vultures for two seasons and claimed a coveted Jim Fletcher medal in 2013.

REPRESENTATIVE TEAMMATES: Andrew Scott (Singleton Roosters) celebrates his Elliott Davey medal victory with his representative teammate Nik Tomlinson (Cardiff).

He also played a season with WAFL club Subiaco in 2010.

“He (Scott) sits right at the top for Singleton,” Macpherson explained.

“He is the best player I’ve played with and seen in my time at the Roosters.

“My fondest memory would be obviously winning the premiership in 2016 but getting to a prelim a couple of years later in the top league and being only two kicks away from making the grand final is a close second.

FLASHBACK: Andrew Scott pictured in the 2020 preliminary final.

“It was his first year as coach and to see firsthand what he was able to produce on the field and coach at the same time was pretty special.”

Scott will line-up in the midfield this weekend alongside former captain and fellow Queenslander Cameron White.

THE A-TEAM: Spearheads Alex Tigani, Alex Mitchell and Andrew Scott finished with an A+ effort of 13 goals between them in Round 2, 2021.

White, who is also closing in on the club’s 100-game mark, believes Scott will go down as one of the Roosters’ best players of the modern era.

“Through the footy he’s played for Singleton and Hunter Rep I don’t think too many people would argue against him being the best player in the league over the last five years,” White added.

“Through his on-field efforts and time given to the club as player coach, he should be recognised as a driving force for the men’s team successfully making the jump up to the Cup competition.”

“I reckon he’s still got another 100 in him too,” Macpherson concluded.
