Will Fish rejoins Hibernian for 2023/24

Thursday 27 July 2023 10:00

Manchester United defender Will Fish will spend the 2023/24 season on loan with Scottish top-flight club Hibernian.

Manchester-born Fish spent last season at Easter Road, and helped the Hibbees finish fifth in the league table, which earns them a spot in this term's UEFA Conference League.

Fish made 21 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals, and solidified his place in the starting XI during the second half of the season.

The 20-year-old was involved in three of United's pre-season games ahead of 2023/24, against Leeds, Lyon and Wrexham, but will now head north to join up with Lee Johnson's Hibs squad.
Fish has made one first-team appearance to date, against Wolves back in 2020/21.

Will has captained both our Under-21 and Under-18 sides at Academy level, and has made one senior competitive appearance for the first team to date.

That opportunity was granted by former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the end of the 2020/21 season, when he replaced Daniel James in the final stages of a 2-1 Premier League win away at Wolves.

The following season, 2021/22, Fish enjoyed another loan assignment with nearby Stockport County.

Now he continues his football development by rejoining Hibernian, with the promise of building on last season's progress and enjoying a first crack at European football.

Everybody at United would like to wish Will and Hibs the best of luck for the 2023/24 season.
