Scott Sinclair




Date of birth






After eighteen years, Scott Sinclair has returned to Bristol Rovers on a short-term deal.

Scott joined the club's Centre of Excellence as an eight-year-old schoolboy from Bath, he was eventually allocated squad number 34, making two substitute appearances for Rovers' first team, against Leyton Orient and Rushden & Diamonds in the 2004/05 season.

A 90th-minute cameo appearance against Orient was followed by a slightly longer 88th-minute appearance against Rushden, so his Rovers first-team career probably amounted to five minutes!

His form for the youth and reserve teams up to that point had been phenomenal and it was no surprise when he would join Chelsea as a 16-year-old, in spite of attempts by Rovers to hang on to him.

The eventual fee was decided by tribunal and Scott would go on to play for a number of top clubs, including Celtic, Manchester City and Aston Villa, making a return to The Mem with the Midlands side in a friendly during the summer of 2016.

Scott rejoined the club in October 2022.
