100 Club for Scott Linton

PostedSeptember 20, 2011

Scott Linton reached a major milestone on Saturday after notching up his 100th league and cup appearance for the 1st team and celebrated in style with the 4th goal in a 4-0 win over Dumbarton.

'Scotty' made his debut as a substitute in a 2-0 win over Ayr United in January 2008 and the 21-year old has gradually established himself as a first team regular over the last 3 and a half years. The cultured midfielder has played in all three SFL leagues for Cowdenbeath and made a significant contribution to the successive promotion successes in 2008/09 and 2009/10.

The left footed player, who is equally as comfortable at left-back, really came of age in the 1st Division last season and has added a goal threat to his attributes. His goal on Saturday took his tally to an impressive 3 from the opening 6 league games of the campaign.

Originally a product of the Spartans youth academy, Linton joined the youth set-up at Central Park in May 2007. In total, Scott has made 80 starts (plus 20 substitute appearances) and scored 7 goals.

Meanwhile team mates Jon Robertson, Mark Ramsay and Craig Winter are all 3 games away from achieving significant club milestones. 'Robbo', another youth academy graduate and current club captain, is 3 games away from joining the 100 Club while 'Mini', who is expected to return from injury in the next week or so, is 3 games short of 150 appearances for the Blue Brazil.

'Toorie' Winter, who has already made more league appearances than any other outfield player for Cowden, is only 3 appearances shy of a legendary 400 in league and cup competitions. The Cowden Hall of Fame inductee is celebrating his testimonial season and a committee has been formed to organise a number of events to honour one of the Club's all time greats - keep an eye on the website and local press for more information.
