The scout reports...
After making his senior debut for Shrewsbury Town aged just 17 in August, we take a close look at Josh Ginnelly, who has been earning reviews since breaking into the team.
Ginnelly came to the fore at the back end of last season travelling with the first-team squad for the clash with Gillingham, whilst still a 1st year scholar.
The skilful wide-man made his debut for Micky Mellon's side coming on as a late substitute for James Collins in a 2–0 win over Luton Town at the New Meadow in August.
Ginnelly spent seven years at Aston Villa's academy prior to his move to Shrewsbury and he has quickly made an impact at the
Ginnelly's progress at the New Meadow has not gone unnoticed by clubs higher up the football pyramid with the winger catching the eye in an Under 18s friendly with Liverpool.
Ginnelly possesses exceptional pace and trickery and is also an excellent crosser of the ball which marks him out as a dream team-mate for a striker.
The teenager is cementing his place as a first-team player training everyday with Mellon's squad and if he is involved in the Capital One Cup clash with Premier League leaders Chelsea later this month it will give Ginnelly the opportunity to showcase his talents to the nation.
The scout says...
An exceptional talent, who has burst onto the scene this season. Very much one to watch and already has Premier League and Championship clubs tracking him.
