Scott Wharton



Date of birth





Blackburn-born, the central defender has been at Rovers since an early age, quickly progressing through the age groups to become the captain of Damien Johnson's development squad.

After an ever-present campaign for the Under-23s last season, he featured regularly for the first team this summer in pre-season before making his league debut in the 2-2 draw against Burton Albion at Ewood Park back in August.
He followed that up scoring his first senior goal in the EFL Cup win over Crewe Alexandra three days later. He has since gone on to make four first team appearances plus three in this season's Checkatrade Trophy.
In a bid to gain further valuable first team experience, January 2017 saw Scott joined League Two side Cambridge United on loan until the end of the season.
