1137 Scott Twine

Biography

Attacking midfielder Scott Twine joined the Tigers on a season long loan in August 2023, a year after Acun Ilicali made him a top target for his Tigers squad ahead of Twine choosing to join Burnley. Twine was a regular starter for Liam Rosenior’s side but was often deployed in wide positions, which didn’t always exploit his skills. As autumn turned to winter Twine began to score goals including a fine free-kick against Preston North End, but he was dropped to the bench during much of the festive period. In mid-January 2024 his loan was terminated, he returned to Burnley and within 24 hours he had joined the Tigers’ Championship rivals Bristol City on loan.

Scott Edward Twine was born in Swindon and grew up in nearby Royal Wootton Bassett.  As a youngster he came through the academy system at Premier League side Southampton before switching to Swindon Town at the age of 14.  After signing his first contract in March 2017 Twine made his senior debut for the Robins against Charlton Athletic in April 2017, having sat on the bench eleven times as unused substitute during the previous twelve months.  In September 2017 he joined local National League South side Chippenham Town on a three month loan then returned for a further month’s loan in late January 2018, overall scoring five goals in 16 appearances.  Scott returned to the Swindon Town first team in April 2018 and made four appearances in League 2.

Twine began the 2018/19 season in the Swindon first team squad and scored his first senior goal in the FA Cup against York City in November 2018.  He spent the last three months of the English season on loan at League of Ireland side Waterford where he scored two goals in 15 appearances, immediately after signing a new contract for Swindon in February 2019.  He remained on the fringes of the first team during the 2019/20 season as Swindon won promotion to League 1, in January 2020 he returned for a third loan spell at Chippenham and scored six goals in 8 appearances.  In September 2020 he joined League 2 side Newport County on loan – during four months at Rodney Parade Scott netted seven goals in 24 appearances and established himself as a first team regular for the first time.  Returning to Swindon in January 2021, he added seven more goals for the struggling Robins and took his Swindon Town tally to nine goals in 59 senior appearances.

In June 2021 Twine declined a new contract at Swindon and transferred to League 1 side Milton Keynes Dons on a free transfer.  The 2021/22 season proved to be a major breakthrough for Scott as he started all but one League game, his 20 goals and 13 assists in 50 appearances propelling the Dons to the League 1 play-offs where they lost to Wycombe Wanderers at the semi-final stage.  Scott netted his first career hattrick against Fleetwood Town in September 2021 and in April 2022 he bagged four goals in the last game of the regular season against Plymouth Argyle.  He won the Milton Keynes Dons player of the year award and added the League 1 Player of the Season award too.  Now regarded as hot property, Twine was subject to much transfer speculation during the 2022 close season and attracted the attention of Hull City – however in June 2022 he signed for Championship side Burnley.  The Clarets swept aside allcomers during the 2022/23 season to lift the Championship title and win promotion to the Premier League but Twine’s contribution was hampered by injury and he managed just 18 appearances, netting three goals.  As Burnley built a squad to compete at Premier League level during the 2023 close season they were happy to listen to offers for Twine and the Tigers swooped with a successful season-long loan deal.

Twince left Hull City in January 2024 and returned to his native West Country, joining Championship side Bristol City on loan for the remainder of the season where he was reunited with his former MK Dons manager Liam Manning.
