SIGNED | Scott Boden Joins Wrexham

Macclesfield Town
Posted:Thu 06 Jul 2017

The club is finally in the position to confirm the signing of striker Scott Boden, following his release by Scottish Premier League side Inverness Caledonian Thistle. 

The cancellation of his registration with the Scottish FA was completed late this afternoon, allowing him to put pen to paper on a one-year contract with the Reds.

He arrives at the Racecourse following a season in Scotland, having joined the Highlanders a year ago from AFC Newport County, where he had been the Exiles' leading scorer in 2015/16. 

Scott was born in Sheffield, 27 years ago and started his career with home town club Sheffield United, signing professionally for them in 2007. 

A year later, he was loaned out to play five matches for IFK Mariehamn, who are based on the Åland islands and still play in the Finnish Premier Division. 

On his return, Scott signed permanently for Chesterfield and played over 100 times for the Spireites, mixed in with further loan spells at both Macclesfield Town and Alfreton Town. 

He enjoyed a couple of notable success at the B2Net Stadium, firstly helping them to the League Two title in 2011 and then in following season lifting the Johnstone Paint Trophy, after being Swindon Town at Wembley. 

Five years and 100+ appearances after initially moving to Derbyshire, he left for Macclesfield Town on a permanent basis, agreeing a one-year contract with the Silkmen. 

Following a successful season, which saw the striker hit 18 goals for Macclesfield in the Conference Premier, he was signed by FC Halifax Town in the summer of 2014. 

A year later and his continued success in front of goal encouraged League Two side Newport County to offer him a one-year contract. 

Having scored the goal that earned the Gwent club an FA Cup third round place for the first time 30 years, he was offered a new contract by Newport but instead he took up the option to move to Inverness Caledonian Thistle, on an extended contract. 

Although he started the season well in Scotland, the Caly Jags were soon struggling at the foot of the SPL and as the season progressed couldn't avoid the drop. 

With a new manager being appointed, there has been a shake-up in personnel and a raft of new players arriving at the Caledonian Stadium.

This led to Scott agreeing to end his contract early and heading back south. 

In Wales once more, he has signed an initial one-year contract with the Dragons, adding yet more experience to Dean Keates' squad.
