Second chance as Scotty signs again

Wednesday, 9th Sep 2020

Eighteen year old Scott Cusick has been re-signed by Dunfermline.

Eighteen year old Scott Cusick has been re-signed by Dunfermline. Initially the midfielder joined Dunfermline from Celtic on 30 January 2020 on a short term deal until the end of the season. Now Scott has agreed a one year contract, with the option of a further year.

Scott will also join Mark Wilson`s Brechin City on loan for the season.

Speaking exclusively to this website in February, Scott told us:-

“My preferred position is anywhere in the front four. If I was playing striker I would probably have someone upfront with me to link with.”

Left footed, Scott was born in Glasgow and grew up in Viewpark. He started playing when he was 5 years old at Airdrie Boys Club he was also locally at Calderbraes Boys Club before attracting the interest of both Celtic and Rangers in the Elite Centres. He signed for Celtic when he was 7 years old and spent the last 10 years there.

After being based at Barrowfield while in Celtic’s junior academy, he went on the programme at St Ninian`s High School in Kirkintilloch which involved school in the morning and Lennoxtown in the afternoon for training. The programme he followed was good for his development but despite a Scotland under 16 call up Scott grew frustrated:-

“I just felt that I was at a standstill at Celtic. I came in here for a few days and was happy here. I was learning a lot from Shieldsie and getting involved in training with the first team. Playing reserve games I feel that I am learning a lot more here than I was at Celtic which is what I am after.

“At the stage that I am at just now, I feel I need to be playing against men to really see where I`m at and start pushing myself.

“Greg Shields is a good guy, I have learned a lot off him in training as well. I have really enjoyed it since I came in. I have been in a few games with the first team after training, I am enjoying that and the gaffer.

“At Celtic it was totally different, I enjoyed every minute of it for the last 10 years but I want to play football and at the age that I am at now, I feel that I have to push myself to try and get first team football.”
