The second part of Scott Agnew’s Pelé Podcast sees the player begin by reflecting on one of the most outstanding periods of his career: his three years with Dumbarton in the Championship.
Scott talks about the club’s difficult first few months in second tier and the seemingly endless series of demoralising defeats before discussing the man who changed the club’s fortunes: Ian Murray. He explains what it was like to work under the new manager, his manner and his methods, and how the team pulled themselves off the foot of the table and into safety.
He then reflects on the Sons’ blockbuster campaign of 2013/14 and how they came within two games of finishing the season in the top four, as well as his final year at the club. Scott then looks back on his “rollercoaster” 12 months with St Mirren, from scoring a brace on his debut to falling out of the first team towards the end of the season. He discusses Ian Murray’s difficult time in charge of the Buddies and working under Alex Miller and then Alex Rae.
Scott finishes by talking about his return to Stranraer and his two years at Stair Park, including how he and his team-mates overcame budget cuts and a fire sale to survive in League 1 last season.
