Scott owes a great deal to Ling

Andy Scott meets up with an old friend tomorrow in opposing boss Martin Ling, who gave him his first ever coaching role. Ling took over the Gulls hotseat in the summer from Paul Buckle and Scott says the Torquay boss is still a great friend of his. "I play golf with Martin in the summer and still speak to him quite a bit. He's a major part of my managerial career," he told Radio Sheffield. "He gave me my first job in coaching and I'll always be grateful for what he did when I finished football - it was a tough spell in my personal life and he was a real big help to me. "I'll always be grateful to him for that on a personal level rather than a football level."
