Scott Mean had a trial for Norwich in a reserve team match against Millwall Reserves on 16th March 1995. At the time, he was a young starlet in Mel Machin's Bournemouth side having partnered Jamie Redknapp in the Bournemouth midfield. Although the Canaries were linked with Scott's signature, he eventually joined his former manager Harry Redknapp at West Ham in the summer of 1996. He was unable to establish a regular spot in the Hammers midfield and only made his league debut for West Ham at the end of the 1997/98 season. In total, he made 3 appearances for the Hammers.

In August 1998, he joined Port Vale on a one month loan period but injuries limited his chances to impress the Staffordshire side. Scott was given a free transfer by West Ham at the end of the 1998/99 season.

Scott returned to Bournemouth in July 1999, passing vigourous medical tests and vowing that his knee injury was behind him. However Scott was released by The Cherries on 16th May 2000. He was quickly linked by Teamtalk with a move to Brighton. Scott was said to be keen on the move as he is based in Sussex. Scott was also linked with a return to London by Teamtalk who linked him with Brentford at the end of May 2000. After a short spell with Kingstonian, Scott joined Dr Martens League side Crawley Town in October 2000.

Scott added another string to his bow when he appeared in comedy football film "Mike Bassett: England Manager," He has also appeared in dram series Dream Team. Does not appear to be playing competitive football any more and is with pub team Wooldridge Tavern
