21-year-old Huddersfield Town Academy graduate heads to South Yorkshire for 2022/23 season
- Scott High joins Rotherham United on season long loan
- Midfielder to gain valuable minutes in Sky Bet Championship
- Comments from Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby
Scott High has today signed for Rotherham United on loan, joining the newly promoted Sky Bet Championship side for the 2022/23 season.
Having joined Town at Under 9 level, Scott was named our 2018/19 Academy Player of the Year before gradually making the step up to First Team football.
With loans to Concord Rangers and Shrewsbury Town under his belt previously, High will be looking to build on an impressive 2021/22 Sky Bet Championship season, where he played important minutes across 25 appearances as we finished in third place and reached the Play-Off Final.
Comfortable on the ball with an intelligent eye for a pass and high defensive work rate, this is a great chance for Scott to play consistently at a high level and look to improve his game even further.
Commenting on the move, Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby said:
“This is a fantastic opportunity for Scott to play regular minutes in the Sky Bet Championship at a club we have a really strong relationship with. We've seen the work their staff have done previously with Josh Koroma and Rarmani Edmonds-Green last season, and we trust Scott to have a similarly positive experience.
“At just 20-years-old, Scott played a lot of minutes in central midfield during a really crucial and successful period of the season for us last year, and he’s only going to get better with time. He is the type of character and professional our Academy is set up to create, and this is just the next step in his development.
“We have high hopes for Scott and Loan Manager David Fox and Performance Coach Dan Hughes will continue working with Scott and monitoring his progress closely over the course of the season, as we do with all of our loanees.”
Good luck, Scott!
