Scott Bevan is an English goalkeeper who was born in Southampton on 19th September 1979. Bevan began his career at his hometown club, signing professional terms at The Dell in 1997. He failed to make a single appearance for Saints before his 2004 departure. Bevan was loaned out to several clubs during that time. He acted as backup at Ayr United and Stoke in 1999 and 2002, before finally making his first team debut for Woking on 16th March 2002. He spent most of the 2002/03 season as Huddersfield's first choice keeper, but couldn't stop the club from being relegated to Division 3. The following campaign he had temporary spells with Wycombe and Woking, before joining MK Dons on a permanent basis in March 2004. By the time Bevan had arrived at The National Hockey Stadium, The Dons were already heading for a relegation to League 1. He lost his starting spot a few months into the 2004/05 season, as MK struggled yet again. In 2005/06 Bevan spent three months on loan at Tamworth.

In 2006 Bevan joined Conference side Kidderminster. He helped The Harriers reach the 2007 FA Trophy Final, which they lost to Stevenage. Bevan remained first choice at Aggborough until 2008, when he signed for Shrewsbury. He spent just 8 months in Shropshire, before signing for Torquay in September 2008. Bevan helped Torquay win promotion back to the football league in 2008/09. He was a key figure for the Gulls over the next two years, helping the club reach the League 2 play-off final in 2011 (Which Torquay lost to Stevenage).

In June 2011 Bevan joined Bristol Rovers. He was signed by Paul Buckle, who also managed Bevan at Torquay. He enjoyed an unremarkable 2011/12 at the Memorial Stadium, with Rovers finishing in mid-table.
