A PLAYER with rich footballing pedigree, defender Scott Wootton has been a part of both Liverpool and Manchester United’s heralded youth academies, before signing for the latter on a professional deal in 2010.

Wootton has Champions League experience with United, replacing centre-back Jonny Evans in a 2-1 win over CFR Cluj in 2012, as well as knock-out cup experience against Chelsea. In 2013, after a series of loan moves, Scott joined Leeds United in a £1m deal, going on to make 66 appearances for the Elland Road club.

The former England under-17 international joined MK Dons on the expiry of his Leeds deal, before joining Argyle in the summer of 2018. An injury-hit first season in Devon left Wootton on the periphery of the first-team set-up. However, upon arriving at Home Park, new manager Ryan Lowe decided to award Scott the number five shirt, underlining his desire to include Scott in his plans.
