Career summary at Wycombe
9 apps - 0 goals
The Scot is the son of former Hearts and Scotland goalkeeper Gordon Marshall and the brother of Gordon jnr who played in goal for Celtic and also his country. However, Scott opted for an outfield role and spent seven years at Highbury making 20 starts in the Premiership as well as gaining Under 21 honours for Scotland. He scored his only goal for the Gunners in their 2-0 victory over Newcastle United in March 1996 and at the end of that season was being voted as the Gunners Young Player of the Year by the supporters.
His time at Arsenal also including a loan spell at Rotherham before a free transfer to Southampton. However, his time at The Dell proved unsuccessful although he will probably remember one game on loan at Celtic where he played in the 'Old Firm' derby with Rangers in May 1999 but ended up on the wrong end of 3-0 scoreline.
His move to Brentford saw Marshall at last gain regular First Team football and although he didn't make a habit of scoring, he did have the occasional nack of scoring in cup ties.
His time with the Wanderers saw a limited amount of First Team appearances, making nine apps before the end of the 2003/4 campaign. He was signed on a 'non-contract' basis at the start of the following season but after a few pre-season appearances for the Wanderers, announced on 27th August 2004 his retirement from the playing side. However, he continued to help out with the Youth set-up with the Wanderers and eventually took on a more senior position following the departure of Youth Dvelopment Officer Colin Barnes in April 2006. He continued with his coaching development at Adams Park but departed in July 2007 as part of a cost cutting exercise at the Club that also saw exits for First Team coaches Steve Brown and Keith Ryan.
After leaving Wycombe he quickly move to a similar role with the Youth set-up at Brentfore before running the Arsenal Soccer School in Muscat. His coaching career continued with an U21 position at Norwich City in 2012, before former Wanderers boss Paul Lambert took him on as First Team coach at Aston Villa in June 2013. Following Lambert's dismissal as Villa's Manager on 11th February 2015, he was appointed as Caretaker Manager at Villa Park, along with Andy Marshall. He joins Lambert, Martin O'Neill and John Gregory as former Wanderers connections to have managed the midlands club.
