United have signed Gainsborough Trinity central defender Luke Waterfall.

22-year-old Waterfall started his career with Barnsley and was a regular for their youth and reserve teams during the 2007–08 season.

After being released he signed as a youngster for League One team Tranmere Rovers in July 2008 making his debut after coming on as a substitute in the 63rd minute, away to Grimsby Town, in a 2–0 defeat in the League Cup.

His first start for Rovers came in a 1–0 victory over Accrington Stanley in the Football League Trophy the following September.

He joined Blue Square Premier side side Altrincham that October and made one substitute appearance in a 2–0 defeat to Weymouth.

After leaving Tranmere in May 2009, Waterfall signed for Conference North team Ilkeston Town the following August after a trial and he finished the 2009–10 season with 38 appearances and two goals.

He then signed for Gainsborough Trinity in May 2010.

Luke’s professional approach, experience and impressive performances during his three year spell in Trinity’s defence have caught the eye and earned him a return to League football with the Iron where he is keen to make his mark.

Because he's under 24, United will pay a still to be agreed fee for his services.
