How is Josh Scowen getting on since leaving Sunderland?

Published

Josh Scowen was a reliable contributor for Sunderland in their fourth placed finish in 2020/21 but was allowed to leave for Wycombe Wanderers on a free transfer in the summer.

Scowen joined the club from Queens Park Rangers in January 2020 appearing just four times before the season was curtailed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The hardworking midfielder turned out 50 times for the Black Cats in 2020/21 as they lost out in the play-off semi finals to Lincoln City.

The 28-year-old has played every minute of league action this season for the Chairboys as they look to immediately bounce back from their Championship relegation last season.

Wycombe are currently three points above Sunderland but have played two more games than Lee Johnson’s men.

The Chairboys look set to be direct rivals in pushing for a top six finish with Sunderland this season, which poses the question as to why the Black Cats would strengthen them with a player who was so crucial for them in 2020/21.

What year was Didier Ndong born?

Scowen started his career at Wycombe Wanderers before leaving for Barnsley in January 2015 so there is a romantic side to his departure from the North East.

The Chairboys were favourites for relegation when they earned promotion to the Championship in 2019/20, they have commanded a lot more respect from neutrals since that event and will believe that Gareth Ainsworth and the squad can replicate that success in this campaign.
