Harriet Scott Professional Footballer

Harriet Scott is a professional footballer who plays as a defender for Birmingham City and the Republic of Ireland national team. She was named Women's International Player of the Year by the Football Association of Ireland in 2018.


Scott was previously with Reading, prior to joining Blues. An aggressive and powerful full-back, Scott joined Reading’s academy aged eight and helped Kelly Chambers' side maintain their top-flight status, following promotion in 2015.


The highly rated defender was rewarded with a new contract back in February 2017 and earned her first senior call up for the Republic of Ireland in the 2017 Cyprus Cup.


Her high-class performances for both club and country didn’t go unnoticed and in March she was named the FAI Senior Women’s International Player of the Year.


As a teenager, she was a part of the ROI Under-17 team that beat Germany on the way to the final of the European Championships in 2010 and then reached the quarters of the World Cup in Trinidad and Tobago.
