Scott Shearer (born 15 February 1981 in Glasgowmarker) Scottishmarker football goalkeeper, who currently plays for Wycombe Wanderers. He signed from Bristol Rovers on a free transfer in May 2007.

Shearer began his career in Scotland with Albion Rovers before moving to amateur side Tower Hearts. He then returned to Albion before joining Coventry City in 2003. During his time at Albion he managed to score a goal, a last-minute equaliser at Hampden Parkmarker against Queen's Park in August 2003.

After joining Coventry, Shearer represented Scotland as part of their national B Team in December 2003.

After playing 30 league games for Coventry in his first season, he played just 8 times in 2004-05, getting replaced by Luke Steele. Playing his last Coventry match in September 2004, Shearer went on loan to Rushden & Diamonds in February 2005 before a permanent move to Bristol Rovers on 27 July 2005 for the start of the 2005-06 season.

Shearer was Bristol Rovers' first choice keeper for 2005-06, making 44 League Two appearances. At the end of the season, he had accumulated 144 league appearances for his clubs. However, after the signing of Steve Phillips, Shearer lost his place in the first team. Despite returning to the team in October 2006, playing three consecutive matches, he was told he would be dropped again. He joined Shrewsbury Town on a three-month deal on 25 October 2006 to provide cover during Ryan Esson's recovery from a facial injury. After Esson's retturn to fitness, Shearer had established himself as Shrewsbury's first-choice goalkeeper, and the loan was extended to the end of the season. His last game for Shrewsbury would have been the League Two play-off final, had it not been against his parent club Bristol Rovers, whom he was not allowed to face.

Shearer's first season with Wycombe was ruined by injury. After playing only five games he damaged his knee ligaments in training and was forced to spend the rest of the season on the sidelines, with Wycombe having to bring in loan goalkeepers Frank Fielding and Przemysław Kazimierczak to cover his and Jamie Young's absences. His first season was much more consistent, though an injury late in the season meant that Young came into the team and stayed as number one even when Shearer returned. Despite this though, he was named in the PFA League Two Team of the Year for the 2008–09 season.
