Scotland has been one of the more consistent strikers in local football. A former member of Defence Force, he has been a clinical finisher for them and was the leading scorer for the 2001 season.

Scotland got his first start, for the T& T President's Eleven and took it with open feet, netting a double in a 2-1 victory over Dundee United in January, 2003 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium. He signed for Dundee United during the 2003/2004 season and was impressive, establishing himself as a first team starter as the season approached a close. Strong with excellent shooting abilities with both feet, Scotland is capable of scoring match winning goals on his day.
