Cedwyn Scott




Date of birth






Scott wrote his name into our history books as the man to fire us back into the EFL with the winning penalty in our play-off final shootout against Chesterfield at Wembley.

The forward notched an impressive 15 goals in his debut season having followed Macaulay Langstaff from Gateshead to Meadow Lane for an undisclosed fee ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.

Together the pair fired Heed to the 2021-22 National League North title, Scott notching 24 league goals and Langstaff 28.

Hailing from Hexham, near Newcastle, Scott began his career as a trainee at Huddersfield Town and, after bagging 21 goals in 26 games for their Under 18s, left them in 2018 to join Dundee.

He hit the ground running north of the border, proving prolific for their development side and being named on the bench for the first team’s SPL trip to Rangers before making his professional debut away at Motherwell.

Two further SPL appearances followed before the season was out and in 2018-19 he joined Division Two side Berwick Rangers on loan, bagging a brace on his debut and finishing his spell with four goals in eight games.

He completed the season with League One outfit Forfar Athletic before retuning to his native north-east by joining Dunston UTS ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.

His goalscoring form then earned him a move to Northern League side Hebburn Town and a sensational start to the 2020-21 season led him to spending four weeks on trial at Newcastle United, and then Carlisle.

He did enough to earn a short-term deal with the Cumbrians before joining Gateshead last summer, scoring 26 goals in 50 appearances over the course of an incredibly successful and memorable campaign.
