Scott High Signs for Town.

3 August 2020

Scott High is the latest addition to the Shrewsbury squad for the 2020/21 campaign after joining from Huddersfield Town on a season-long loan.

Central midfielder Scott is one of the longest-serving scholars at Huddersfield, having joined the Academy at Under-9 level from junior football in Penistone.
Based in Sheffield, he first featured for the Under-18s as a schoolboy, making two starts and five substitute appearances.
His 2017/18 campaign was a tremendous success, with further appearances for the Under-18 side quickly seeing Scott progress to a key role in the Under-23s as a midfield playmaker. 
2018/19 saw Scott establish himself as the captain of Town's Under-19 side, when he made nearly 50 appearances in the season - scoring seven times. His form, as well as his de off the pitch, saw him named the Club's Academy Player of the Year at the end of the campaign.
Scott progressed again in 2019/20, stepping into the First Team squad when the opportunity arose. He was an unused sub for Danny Cowley's side on five occasions at the turn of the year, having signed a new long-term contract in the summer. 
He also played his first senior football on loan at Vanarama National League South side Concord Rangers, impressing during six appearances. 
Sam Ricketts added why he was so keen to bring the youngster to the club.
“He’s a young lad, who Dean Whitehead knows very well from his time there.
“Scott is an all-round midfielder, who’s full of energy. He’s eager to come out and test himself with his first league loan.
“He’s got a fantastic attitude and is desperate to get going.”
