Dan Scarr’s arrival from Stourbridge represents a decent investment opportunity for Blues. For a highly rated player, albeit at non-league level, and a nominal fee, it’s a win-win situation.

Scarr’s development will be monitored at close quarters and many at the club are excited about his arrival and what the future could possibly bring. If all goes according to plan, Scarr could be seen as the direct replacement for Paul Robinson who is nearing the end of his career.

Scarr’s progression may not go the way the club want it to, of course. If it doesn’t, they could always offload him.

For the player himself, he’s managed to impress enough to earn himself a contract at a Championship club. Even if it doesn’t work out for him at St. Andrews, the likliehood of a League One or League Two club waiting in the wings to take him off our hands is high.

The club must do their utmost to develop a talented player. Scarr must embrace his time at Blues and work his socks off to force his way into the first team picture.

  • Stourbridge is my local town. Scarr is a John Terry like player. Bluenoses will love him. Just a case of getting him up to Championship stage. Watching him as I have,I have never considered him for a move to us-however the more I think about it,the more I like it. Silver lining is if we get too far adrift from a play off spot then last 6/7 games would be ideal to blood him.

  • Just an added note on Scarr-those old enough to remember Vince Overson and Roger Hind will imo liken our new man to those legends.

  • Never seen him play at Stourbridge but I did see him numerous times for Worcester he as the quality and he as progressed up the leagues lets hope the championship is not one level to high. Many people down at the sporting ground would say he will end up in the prem even the training staff beloved this . I fort the same. My son plays for Worcester U13s and he always got involved with them he is a good role model. And a nice lad KRO

  • Just need some double decker buses down the training ground for heading practice then. Its a big step up but plenty of them make it if they have the determination and willingness to learn. Its very different for a central defender because they don’t need the same sort of qualities as midfielders or even full backs. Its more about reading the game and dealing with the ball.

  • Hi gazal This lad is very good on the ball and When at Worcester I never seen him lose in the air. He reads the game like he is playing him self. He don’t just hack the ball away he tacks it down to feet and plays it out. He gets forward and scores goals also. now I am not saying he can do this in the championship from the off as attackers are much better than he as come across in the lower leagues but so far he as move up in class and progressed very quaky. He really reminds me of a young John Terry. So many people say the same. I know of him because my son played for Worcester City U13s at the time my son is now playing U20s for Kidderminster we have high hopes for him :0) . And Scarr was the main man then just 18 years old He would always be involved with the younger player he got first team football and was noticed and then moved on. And that where I lost track of him until this yours Cup games I really think he will succeed ever with us or ells where. KRO
