The signing of former Bristol City winger Scott Murray has now been officially confirmed, with the Scotsman arriving at the club on a one year deal.
Scott is a former Highland League player who started his career with Fraserburgh, before breaking into the top flight with Aston Villa in 1994, with Villa paying a bargain £35,000 for his services. But the main part of his career has been spent at Bristol City who he joined in 1997, having two spells sandwiched by a partial season at Reading. Last season he finished the season on loan at Cheltenham Town before being released by City. Murray will retain connections with City, according to their Official Site, continuing to assist with their Academy.
Scott's spell with Reading that briefly interrupted his 11.5 years at Ashton Gate came between June 2003 and March 2004, with a £650,000 transfer sending him along the M4. But despite playing 34 times for the Royals, he returned again, and ultimately made 427 appearances for the Robins across the two spells, netting 74 times in the league and a further 18 times in other competitions.
He was born in Aberdeen on May 26th 1974 and is therefore 35 years old. He has one Scotland B cap to his name, gained via the substitutes bench in a match against Germany.
A big welcome to Scott and we hope he has a successful year at the club.
NB: The contract length is of slight confusion. The Bristol City official site describe it as a one year contract whilst Yeovil's describe it as a two year deal. We've assumed the club holding the contract understand the situation better for the moment.
Update 17.15: The Yeovil Town Official Site has now changed it to one year.
