ned, bazza, townie

A term coined originally in Liverpool to group together a certain type of person through their clothes, language and ideals.
The male 'scally' can be easily recognised through his clothing and language used. Hair is to be short and thickly gelled, often accompanied by a cap (Burberry preferably) tilted at a 45 degree angle. Gold jewelly is a must, curb chains and bracelets mainly, but the sovereign ring must also be taken into account. A small hooped earring never goes amiss. Tops must be slightly baggy and carrying a latest brand name (at time of writing Henri Lloyd is popular). Polo shirts (Hackett) are also a popular motif of the scally, coupling heavy branding with an ability to lift the fold-over collar up around the neck. Tracksuit bottoms are the desirable trouser of choice, often being rolled into sport socks. Trainers must be worn (except on nights out where loafers become king). Reebok Classics or Nike Air Max are still the reigning style, although Adidas County trainers are becoming seen more widely. Transport comes from 'suped-up' cars which are often between 10 and 20 years old. The lower to the floor, the better. Swearing is a common factor of scally language, along with monoslylaabic terms, possibly due to the dropping out of education before GCSE's could be taken.

The female scally is often seen with a much older male scally. Hair is scraped back and heavily hairsprayed. Limitless amounts of make-up cover any blemishes, and the look is finsihed off with big hooped earrings. Clothes wise, tracksuit tops and tracksuit bottoms or jeans are preferred, along with the mandatory trainers. VPL always helps. Smoking and a young baby in a second hand pushchair are good accessories.

To find a scally, your best bet will be to parade the local big shopping mall, the local nightspots or, especaiily in seaside resorts, the main parade along the beach where numerous scally cars can be seen circling round, and round, and round...

There are two trains of thought of it's origin. The first one is the word 'scally' is a derivative of the Afrikaans word 'skollie' which means naughty or pesky little boy - A lot of soldiers from Liverpool fought in the Boer War and Afrikaans words were in vogue in the Scouse dialect for awhile though only two remain which are 'scally' and spion kop'

The other train of thought it that 'Scally' was derived from a tough Irish-Liverpool family of the same name, the Scally family had a lot of sons who were always up to no good and thus the beginnings of the term Scally.

A scally is not from Birmingham, Leicester, Keighley, Corby, Brighton, Rotterdam or Dar es Salaam - Scallies are Scousers or Mancunian in origin, Scallies dress, act, talk and interact in a very individualistic way.

Scallies don't tend to work, they end to dress in sports/casual gear, they tend to be Irish Catholic in origin and they tend to smoke, drink take too many drugs.

Scallies are physically puny and tend not to be able to fight all that well - despite their violent tenedencies - they get round this by breeding pitbull terriers and walking them everywhere and carrying weaponary which they will use liberally.

Scallies tend to come from a long line of workshy, deviant, unemployable and violent bloodlines and DNA. Despite this some scallies make it to the big time in the sporting and musical fields - most noteworthy are the Gallagher brothers and Joey Barton - proper scalls them three.

The nearest cousin to the scally is the Glaswegian 'Ned'
both Celtic in DNA attitude and look (weedy, pale and they tend to smell)the scally is here for the time being so we all better get used to it - and that means buying a decent house alarm.
Arrr ey mate - yer a proper scally aren't ya!

scally was a liverpool term for "casuals" and over time has come to mean any kind of young "hood" who wears sportswear, or acts like a "plazzy gangster"

a primitive being who wears tracksuits with the bottoms firmly tucked into blue sports socks. wears mostly adidas classic as these are all they can afford. mostly seen wearing le coq sportif tops and fake jewelry, females sporting large amounts of makeup and stupidly large 0 carat earings. the male often communicates using a variety of grunts and slang words, no longer than 5/6 words in length, and extremely jumbled up. the female usually conceives at 16, at which point the male runs away. they are usually seen in groups of 5, at which point they attempt to act hard. however, when comfronted singlely, they run away saying "get my mate on u" or "fu** u".fin is a good example of a scally. at the driving age they can be seen traveling in "modded" cars, usually vauxhall nova's or rovers. these have giant exhausts and heavy alloy wheels, which make the car incredibly slow. also the car may be seen with blacked out windows and/or dark tail lights. usually these cars acheive a top speed of 20MPH, and can be seen driving around certain places. once a place has been found, the scally will wait for other scallys and form a group to try and race these modded cars. usually metro's are chosen to be raced as these are as crap as the modded cars, however they have been known to challenge non modded cars that they think are crap.. and usually lose. at that point they resort to excuses such as "my car aint workin" or "ill get you again". the cars also have massive speakers that play the same repetitive tune over and over again. usually deafness ensues, and as the scally writhes in aghony whilst thinking that the radios broke, the scally crashes and blames it on other things.

Basically, a load of idiots who they are "well hard init" and a lot of them don't go to school cause they can't be arsed and think they are "2 kewl 4 skul m8" as they would rather spend their time robbing stuff and starting fights with random people, if you look at them then thats it, you're 'in for it' and they will react like this "errr wot u lukin at, u startin, u want a fuckin fight m8 yeh, fuckin dosser, fuckin tramp" basically every word that comes out of their mouth is a swear word. ALL scallys basically dress the same, its like their little uniform which looks retarded to people around them.
Guy scallys walk round is stripey sports jumpers or polo t-shirts with their collars up OR a 'hoody' cause it makes them look bad init, with sports trackies that are tucked into their socks which looks SO stupid and they think it looks good. They also wear the most ugly bulky sports trainers ever or rockport. Oh and lets not forget their 'bling bling' fake gold cheapo chains from argos or somewhere like that. A lot of the time they wear caps and if they don't then they usually have a skin head or hair with loads of greasy gel on it.
Girl scallys Usually wear sports jumpers (sometimes stripey to match their scally boyfriend's) and trackies, some girls even tuck their trackies into their socks aswell. They wear those same bulky trainers or rockport (which look even more stupid on the girls) and when they're not dressed like that they dress like prostitutes. Their hair is usually bleached blonde, tied up scraped to their head with LOADS of hairspray and hair mousse/gel. They wear a lot of make up so you can spot them by their orange foundation covered faces with loads of mascara which goes all clumpy and a ton of eyeliner, lipgloss and eye shadow (preferably a bright colour) Scally girls also wear the cheapo bling bling which usually consists of a massive 'doll/clown' chain or an initial chain which is as big as their head, and hooped earrings that they could fit round their head and a ton of rings on their fingers, usually a sovereign.
WARNING, if you are NOT a scally you will be considered a freak and stared at and shouted abuse at.
You can find scallys near shops and shopping centres with a fag in their hand, bottle of cheap cider or lambrini listening to the latest "bangin chooooooons" on their music phone which consists of DJ this and DJ that 'in the mix motha fucka' and talking about how their weekend was ''wicked m8 yeh i got into dis fight with dis propa mong yeh, was fuckin massiveeeee, then i went owt wit my otha m8s n got propa wasted n fucked outta my face, smokin weed all night yeh n gettin well bad pissed, cant rememba a fuckin fing m8, was minters"
"rite yeh i dint go skul 2day coz i is well hard init m8, u like my new trackies? fuckin well nice aint they. er yeh this mosher was starin at me yeh so i went ova there n knocked him out the dossy tramp! then i went n got fucked outa my face wastttttted" < basically what scally's say summed up for ya. =]

low life scum who think that they are hard because they have no or little education. Don't seem to realise that employers couldn't give a shit that someone can fight. each scally is apparantly his/her own person but they all seem to wear the same white addidas track suit. generally tend to say the word fuck a lot.
that scally prick sucks more cock than my ex-girlfriend
