Scott Barron

Born: 2/11/85

Position: Defender

Squad number: 16

Profile: A product of Ipswich’s renowned youth academy, Barron is nothing if not reliable when called upon. Whether it is at left-back or at left-wing, Barron will give 100 per cent for the team.

Lions fans will remember Barron for his impressive showings in the 2009 play off semi-final matches against Huddersfield, where he caused The Terriers all sorts of problems – particularly in the second leg, in which he crossed the ball for Paul Robinson to head home, securing Millwall’s place in the final.

In 2005, at the tender age of 20, Barron made 14 Championship for The Tractor Boys under boss Joe Royal.

But the following year he struggled to break into Royle’s first team and was sent out on loan to Wrexham, where he made only three appearances.

Barron was Willie Donachie’s sixth permanent signing when he agreed to come to Millwall in 2007, and has since gone on to make 109 appearances in the league for The Lions.

Did you know: Barron was born in Preston and his father is a season ticket holder at Middlesbrough.
