Scott Laird joined Forest Green Rovers at the start of the 2017/18 season after his release from Scunthorpe United.

The defender started his career at Plymouth Argyle and made his way through the youth set-up there before being loaned out to Tiverton in 2006.

Laird has since played at Torquay, Stevenage, Preston North End, Walsall and Scunthorpe United.

Laird made his England C team debut in 2009 as he faced a Belgium U21 side including the likes of Simon Mignolet and Radja Nainggolan.

He is known as an intelligent defender with an excellent left-foot – who will often take corners and free-kicks in dangerous areas.
