Tall and versatile midfielder who can also play in defence and is a classy ball user.
- Decision making
- Lean frame
- Contested ball winning ability
- Inconsistent by foot
Scrimshaw’s biggest appeal is his ability to play in multiple positions.
He has the height to play as a key defender, while his agile and wiry frame means he can also shift into the midfield.
He moves through traffic well and has brilliant evasive skills and a good burst of speed given his height.
However, he does need to work on his man marking in defence, as he is often easily outmuscled and outmarked.
He also has a terrific left peg on him an d can roost the ball a long way, however, his short passing often lets him down and he does need to improve on his accuracy at times, however, in general he is a good ball user can certainly find the footy.
