Date of birth
Scott Malone signed for Huddersfield Town for an undisclosed fee from Fulham on 5 July 2017.
Born in the West Midlands on 25 March 1991, 6’ 2” tall Scott joined the Wolverhampton Wanderers Academy at nine years old.
He eventually turned professional at Molineux, but never made a senior appearance for Wolves. Instead, his First Team debut came as an 18 year-old through a 2009 loan spell at Hungarian club Újpest FC, making eight appearances and helping the side qualify for the Europa League.
Capped six times by England Under-19s, he was named Wolves’ Academy Player of the Year upon his return from Újpest.
Scott gained further experience through loans at League 1 Southend United in the 2009/10 season and at League 2 Burton Albion in the 2010/11 campaign before starting the next year at AFC Bournemouth back in the third tier.
He impressed in his latest loan spell and joined the Cherries permanently in the January 2012 window, but was on the move again in the summer, moving up to the Sky Bet Championship to join Millwall.
It was at the Den where Malone established himself, spending three years playing at the Den in the second tier of English football.
He moved across the division to join Cardiff City in January 2015 and eventually joined Fulham after 18 months, starting the 2016/17 campaign at the London club.
It was at Craven Cottage where Malone has excelled. From left back, he netted six goals and got three assists in a very attacking role to help Fulham reach the Play-Off semi-finals, earning a place in the EFL’s Sky Bet Championship and PFA Championship Teams of the Year.
In total, Malone played over 150 games in the Sky Bet Championship ahead of his move to the Terriers.
