Bailey Scott looms as one of North Melbourne's most exciting prospects, after an impressive start to the home and away season.
Scott was amongst his team's best as he registered two goals, 17 disposals, 4 tackles and a team-high 6 marks against Port Adelaide.
“This was an opportunity to play my role and I felt like I stuck to it well,” Scott told North Media.
“It didn’t feel like one of the best games I’ve played so far ... I feel like there’s been a couple of games I had a better impact on to go with the stats.
“Obviously my run and breaking lines are strengths of mine, I’ve got that ability to … get involved whether that be high up the ground or deep in the forward line.”
After 17 games in his first two seasons at the club, Scott is targeting consistent football at AFL level, and wants to make himself indispensable to North Melbourne.
The youngster played 13 game in 2020, and is looking to build on that again in 2021.
“At the moment, my goal is to get out on the park every weekend and make sure I can nail my role for the team,” he said.
“We’re a young, up and coming group with a lot of energy and excitement … I want to fit right into that and be a big part of bringing North Melbourne forward.”
Scott's 17-possession tally was the second-highest of his career so far, the youngster part of an emerging young group of midfielders, featuring the likes of Luke Davies-Uniacke, Will Phillips, Tom Powell and Charlie Lazzaro.
