Scott Benjamin Laird (born in 15 May 1988) is a defender currently playing for League One side Stevenage.

Laird began his football career as a trainee at Plymouth Argyle, progressing through the club's centre of excellence. He spent a total of eight years on the club's books, but only managed to make one first team appearance for the club. In 2006, he was loaned out to Tiverton Town, playing a total of 20 games for the club, scoring four times. He was later loaned to Torquay United in September 2007, making two appearances for the side. Another loan spell followed, this time to Stevenage in late 2007. Laird impressed under manager Peter Taylor and signed on a permanent basis at the start of February 2008 for an undisclosed fee.

He has been a first team regular since his move, and was the club's Player of the Year for the 2009 10 season, a season in which the Hertfordshire side won promotion to the Football League for the first time in the club's history. His success as a Stevenage player continued the following season, playing an integral role in the club's 2010 11 campaign, helping Stevenage earn promotion to League One. Laird has also represented Scotland at youth level, captaining the Scotland under 16 team. However, Laird was called up for the England C side in April 2009, starting in a game against the Belgium U21 team.
