Midfielder joins Sky Bet League 1 side

- Comments from Academy Manager Emyr Humphreys

Huddersfield Town midfielder Scott High has joined Sky Bet League 1 side Shrewsbury Town on loan for the 2020/21 campaign.

The 19-year-old midfielder will join up with his former U19 Coach Dean Whitehead, now the First Team Coach at Shrewsbury Town, as he looks to gain regular First Team football.

This is Scott’s second loan move away from Town; his first was at Concord Rangers during the 2019/20 campaign.

The Young Terrier will now gain an even more valuable experience of First Team football under the management of Sam Ricketts.

Shrewsbury Town finished 16th in the Sky Bet League 1 table last season after picking up 41 points from 34 games before the season was curtailed.

Local-boy, Scott, joined the Terriers at Under-9 level and has impressed ever since, going on to make his First Team debut on the final day of the Sky Bet Championship season against Millwall.

He regularly trains with Town’s First Team and appeared in the Club’s match day squad five times prior to his debut.

Huddersfield Town’s Academy Manager Emyr Humphreys commented:

“We believe this is a really good opportunity for Scott and a great step for him.

“This loan will provide him with a great exposure to senior First Team football at a really competitive level.

“He’ll also be linking back up with Dean Whitehead too. They obviously know each other very well from Deano’s time with us, so that relationship will hopefully help him thrive at Shrewsbury Town.

“Scott fully deserves this loan move. He works tirelessly both on and off the pitch to improve his own game and we believe this will be a fantastic experience for him.”
