Max Lowe couldn’t add to his 12 Derby appearances during the 2017/18 season, but he built his experience massively away from Pride Park Stadium.
He spent the second half of the campaign on loan at Shrewsbury Town as they fought in vain to win promotion to the Championship.
Lowe experienced two trips to Wembley Stadium – for the Checkatrade Trophy final and League One play-off final – whilst he also played 100 minutes of Shrewsbury’s FA Cup Third Round replay against West Ham United at the London Stadium.
He also moved out on loan again in August 2018 shortly after penning a new long-term deal with the Rams. He headed to Scotland to link up with Aberdeen, where he impressed in a half-season loan deal which then saw him briefly return to Pride Park in January 2019 before re-joining the Dons for the rest of the campaign.
The left-sided player - comfortable of performing at left-back or further forward in midfield – signed his first professional contract in the summer of 2015 after being a near ever-present throughout his scholarship.
Lowe has also been recognised on the international stage at several levels, having been capped by England at Under-16, 17 and 18 level.
