Scott Walter Canham (born
11 November 1974in Newham) is an English professional football midfielder.
Canham was born in
Newham, London. He began his career as an apprentice at West Ham United, turning professional on 2 July 1993. As West Ham embarked on their first seasons in the Premiership, Canham found it impossible to make the breakthrough into the first team. Still yet to make his league debut, he joined Torquay United on loan on 3 November 1995, making 3 league appearances before returning to Upton Park at the end of his month at Plainmoor.
Later that season, on
19 Januaryhe moved to Brentford on a loan spell that would last until 20 Apriland see Canham play 14 league games. On 29 August 1996, Canham moved to Brentford for a fee of £25,000, but struggled to make an impact. He played 35 league games for Brentford, 11 of which were as a substitute, scoring only once before being released after Brentford's relegation in the summer of 1998. On 10 August 1998he joined Leyton Orient, but the form of the other midfielders at Brisbane Roadlimited his chances and he joined Ryman Premier League side Chesham United for a month's loan on 22 December. On his return to Orient, he failed to reappear in their first team, and in August 2000 was released to join Chesham United.
Such was his form for Chesham the following season, that Orient manager Tommy Taylor, who had released him a year before, brought Canham back to Brisbane Road on
27 June 2001. He joined Woking on loan in March 2003 and in May thatr year moved to Woking on a free transfer. In February 2005 he moved to Farnborough Town and in July 2006 joined his former Farnborough manager Frank Grayat Grays Athletic.
His time at Grays Athletic was short lived and he then moved to neighbours Thurrock.
