The name S.Taylor will live long in the Dale history books for his goalscoring accomplishments for Dale. However, there was very little in common between strikers Scott and Steve in terms of what they delivered on the field for Dale.

In fairness to Scott, he'd had a decent career in the game, playing football for the vast majority at a higher level than League Two. And I'm sure that had we signed him a few years earlier, we'd have had some player on our hands.

But as it was, his better years were certainly behind him, and the nicest thing you could say about his spell with Dale was that it was largely forgettable.

He was brought in by Dale boss Keith Hill when our strikers were struggling for goals a couple of months into the 2007-8 season. Glenn Murray was short of form, and Chris Dagnall had been ruled out for the remainder of the season (or so we thought at the time) with a cruciate injury.

He made four appearances for Dale, two of which were off the bench, but he contributed little and he was sent back to MK Dons following the expiry of his month's loan.

He never made another league appearance for MK and spent the remainder of the season on loan at Grays before being released by the Dons in May 2008.
