Lloyd Isgrove BiographyLast updated 26 Sep 2016
Former clubs: Peterborough (loan), Sheffield Wednesday (loan), Barnsley (loan)
Born in Yeovil, Lloyd Isgrove joined the Southampton academy in 2002, aged just nine. He progressed through the system, before being promoted to the first team at the beginning of the 2012/13 season.
The youngster, who is an attack-minded player has also featured heavily for the Under-21 side over the last few years.
Isgrove made his senior debut as a substitute with an impressive cameo during a Capital One Cup defeat at Leeds United in October 2012. He featured in the squad for the same competition a year later during a 5-1 win at Barnsley.
Loan spells and league debut
He ended the 2013/14 season on loan at Peterborough United in League 1. At London Road, he was part of the Posh team that won the Johnstone's Paint Trophy at Wembley, and although he extended his stay there until the end of the season, there was no repeat trip to the national stadium as Peterborough lost in the play-off semi-finals to Leyton Orient.
Lloyd also represented Wales at Under-21 level that season, and made his return to St Mary's for the 2014/15 campaign, signing a fresh one year deal to prolong his stay with the club.
He made his Premier League debut as a substitute in an opening-day defeat at Liverpool, the first of four appearances he made for Saints before extending his contract until 2017 and joining Sheffield Wednesday on loan March 2015, playing for the Championship outfit eight times.
Isgrove joined League 1 side Barnsley for the 2015/16 campaign and helped the Tykes enjoy a memorable season. The winger played his part in two Wembley successes, as Barnsley won the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and then promotion to the Championship via the play-offs.
