SC East Bengal have signed 31-year-old Brisbane Roar FC fullback Scott Neville on loan for the 2020-21 season of the Indian Super League.

Born in Devon, England, Neville moved to Perth, Australia at a very young age after his father, an Englishman and former footballer in England, took over the role of coach at Western Australian club Sorrento FC.

Scott was part of the youth setup at local club Perth Glory and made his senior team debut against Central Coast Mariners in December, 2008. He left the club in 2012 after four seasons and over the next few years turned up for A-League sides Newcastle Jets, Western Sydney Wanderers and more recently Brisbane Roar FC – from where he joins SC East Bengal on loan.

Neville has made well over 200 appearances in the A-League having featured in the league for more than a decade and has also experience playing in the AFC Champions League with Western Sydney Wanderers. The right back was the youngest to captain an A-League when he was named captain at the age of 18 at Perth Glory. Scott has also represented the Australian National Team at U-20 and U-23 levels.

India presents a new challenge and I cannot wait to don the red and gold colours and take the field. There will always be massive expectations from us and I am aware of that.

I can assure the fans that we will leave no stone unturned in our bid to strive for excellence.

I would like to thank the Brisbane Roar Football Club also for making this move possible.
