Scott Pollock made his professional debut with his boyhood club on 19 January.
Scott, who once was a part of the academy in Spencer Owen‘s Hashtag United, has swapped 430,000 subscribers for a 7,798 seater stadium. He signed a two-year youth scholarship deal with the Cobblers back in September 2018.
When a player was injured in a recent game against Cambridge United, Scott was brought on and made his English Football League debut.

The match ended in defeat, with a score of 3-2 to Cambridge United. Scott tweeted that although he was “absolutely gutted” about the result, wearing the club’s shirt was still a “proud moment” for him.
