Born in Sheffield, Digby progressed the ranks at Barnsley academy and was handed his first-team debut aged just 16, becoming the Tykes’ fourth youngest ever player.

He joined Ipswich in the summer of 2016, following a successful loan spell, before switching to Mansfield Town 12 months later.

He has played 15 times for Mansfield so far, but has not featured since before Christmas.
