Former Hashtag United Player Scott Pollock Scores First Professional Goal For Northampton

Former Hashtag United Player Scott Pollock Scores First Professional Goal For Northampton

In just over a year, Scott Pollock has gone from representing YouTube side Hashtag United in the tenth tier of non-league football to playing and scoring for League Two club Northampton Town.

It has been a remarkable rise for the 17-year-old, who joined The Cobblers in September 2018.

Pollock made his debut just four months later in a 3-2 defeat at Cambridge United, and has since impressed manager Keith Curle in the first team squad.

As a reward for his fine form, the teenager earned himself a start against struggling Carlisle United on Tuesday night.

The midfielder was a threat from the off at Brunton Park. In fact, he was Northampton's stand out player for large spells of the game.

And he finally got his just rewards in the 51st minute, when he gave the League Two side a 1-0 lead with a cracking effort from inside the box.

Pollock continued to play Carlisle off the park as Northampton made it 2-0 in injury time through Sam Hoskins.

The midfielder was then voted the club's Man of the Match following his heroics in the North West, with an incredible 92% of fans voting for the former Hashtag United player.

The rise of Pollock is a great example of how Hashtag United's huge platform, a team who have over 440,000 subscribers on YouTube, can help you progress through the system.

We look forward to watching more of the 17-year-old in the coming months.
