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.

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.
