United manager Russ Wilcox has expressed his delight as securing his first summer signing.

Port Vale winger Jennison Myrie-Williams has joined the Iron on a two year deal after he ended his association with the Vale.

Wilcox has been keen to secure the services of the versatile 26-year-old since the end of last season.

He told The Iron Player: “I’m delighted to have finally got that deal across the line.

“Obviously Lee Turnbull has done a lot of work to bring Jennison to the club. 

“We met up with the player last week and we had discussions and now he has been up to the club and he likes what we are all trying to do here. 

“This club is moving forward and he wants to be part of that.”

Myrie-Williams started his career with Bristol City, then he moved north of the border to ply his trade with Dundee United and St Johnstone before returning to England with Stevenage and Port Vale.

The experienced and multi-talented player will bring a lot to the Iron as they look to have another successful season under the management of Wilcox. 

“Jennison has pace and power,” Wilcox said.

“He can play out wide on both wings and he is also a goal scorer which is something we have seen him do quite a lot at Port Vale. 

“Over the last two seasons he has played 95 times for Port Vale and he has scored 21 goals, he continued.” 

“I’m delighted that we have managed to secure this deal. He is a great addition to the squad.” 

The Iron boss added: “He is naturally left footed and at six-foot tall he gives us more height going forward. Again it gives us competition for places out wide and that is the key.”
