In midfielder Alex Scott, AFC Bournemouth have one of England’s most exciting talents.

Born in Guernsey, Scott began his career in the academy of south coast side Southampton, being released when he was 12.

His first goal came in a defeat to Nottingham Forest, tucking home from close range after Nahki Wells’ shot was well saved.

The English midfielder continued his fine form throughout the 2022/23 campaign, playing 49 times.

He helped Bristol City reach the FA Cup fifth round, falling to Manchester City. Scott’s performance earned plaudits from Pep Guardiola, who described Scott as an “unbelievable player.”

Scott was awarded Bristol City’s Player and Young Player of the Season awards as well as the EFL Championship Young Player of the Season trophy, earning a spot in the competition’s Team of the Season.

A regular at youth level for England, Scott was part of the squad for the 2023 FIFA Under-20 World Cup, playing three of the Young Lions’ four games.

He also won the UEFA European Championships with the under-19s team in 2022, scoring in the semi-final win over Italy.
