Football career of Jill Scott

Jill Scott represented England’s Under-19s team at the youth level, scoring three goals in three games as England advanced beyond the first round of qualification for the 2006 UEFA Under-19s tournament. After serving as captain of the Under-19s team for the preceding 18 months, she received her first call-up to the England senior squad in May 2006. In an August 2006 match against the Netherlands, she made her senior squad debut for England, replacing Kelly Smith late in a 4-0 victory.

She was included in the team for the 2007 World Cup and entered the game against Japan as a substitute for England. She continued to start all of England’s subsequent games in the competition, and in the group stage’s 6-1 thrashing of Argentina, she also netted her maiden goal for her country. After losing to the United States 3-0, England was eliminated from the tournament in the quarterfinals. Scott accepted a position with Everton Ladies in July 2006 after rejecting an offer from Doncaster Rovers Belles. The following month, she played in her debut game for Everton, a 3-0 loss to Arsenal Ladies in the FA Women’s Community Shield.

Scott is known as “Crouchy” after male international footballer Peter Crouch. She helped the Blues won the FA Women’s Cup in 2010 and the FA Women’s Premier League Cup in 2008 after leaving her hometown club Sunderland for Everton in 2006. Scott was selected as the FA Players’ Player of the Year in 2008 and the FA International Player of the Year in 2011. She received the FA Tesco Players’ Player of the Year award at the conclusion of the 2007–2008 campaign. Alex Scott and Karen Carney of Arsenal were also nominated. Scott was chosen in April 2012 to be one of eight digital media ambassadors, one from each club, who put the name of their Twitter account on the sleeves of their shirts to increase awareness of the WSL. After the 2013 campaign, Scott made the decision to depart Everton.

Jill Scott scored a goal in England’s 2-1 group B victory over New Zealand at the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Scott responded on the social media platform Twitter to Hope Powell’s accusation that the players who chose not to volunteer for penalties did so out of “cowardice,” saying, “We win as a team…we lose as a team.”

Jill Scott was given a red card and a three-match suspension in April 2015 for headbutting Jade Bailey of Arsenal during Manchester City’s 1-0 loss.
