New Iron signing Jennison Myrie-Williams can't wait to make an impact at Glanford Park.

Following two excellent seasons with Port Vale, the 26-year-old has agreed a two-year deal, with the option of another year in United's favour, which will kick in from July 1.

"I'm really pleased and happy to get my future sorted and sign for such a good, ambitious club," he told The Iron Player.

"Speaking to Russ Wilcox and Lee Turnbull, it just sounds like a good place to be.

"They told me the goals of the club and where they are looking to go.

"I have spoken to quite a few clubs this summer but none of the others had a vision for where they see the club in a year or two's time.

"The manager has shown me the vision of the club and the part he sees me playing in that.

"As soon as the season finished, Scunthorpe told my agent they were interested and said they were going to try and get something together.

"Ever since then, they've kept to their word and tried to sign me.

"I enjoyed my time at Port Vale, and would like to thank Micky Adams for giving me the chance to play regular football.

"I got promoted in my first season and we finished ninth last season so I leave there with a heavy heart and I'm ready for a new challenge now, and Scunthorpe is that."

Myrie-Williams has already made an appearance in claret and blue, having had a trial with the club during Ian Baraclough's reign as manager and playing in a reserve match.

"I don't remember much about it but I know we played Leeds in a reserve game. I remember the pitch and my surroundings," he added.

"I'm happy to be here, to have signed and I'm ready for the new season.

"Running with the ball and expressing myself are my strengths, as well as scoring and creating goals.

"I have reached ten goals in the last two seasons, and I'm looking to keep that going, and better it, and go again.

"I will always try to do the best I can and go from there really."
