Iron defender David Mirfin has signed a new two-year contract with the club.

The 29-year-old, who made 49 appearances last season, scoring twice and helping his side win promotion, has extended his third stay with United until 2016.

Born in Sheffield, Mirfin joined Huddersfield Town as a youth team player in 2001 and went on to sign professionally for the club two years later.

He made 164 appearances for the Terriers during a five year stint in West Yorkshire and scored 10 goals before Scunthorpe paid £150,000 for his services in August 2008.

He made his debut in claret and blue away at Walsall and was sent off for a professional foul within the first ten minutes but after that point, he never looked back.

Mirfin went on to play 111 times for the Iron and scored on five occasions during his first spell with the club.

He was part of the 2008-2009 League One Play-Off winning squad as the Iron beat Millwall 3-2 at Wembley to secure promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking.

However following United’s relegation back down to League One in 2011, Mirfin joined Watford on a free transfer but played just five times in his one and only season with the Hornets.

He came back to Glanford Park on loan between January and May 2012 before re-signing permanently on a free transfer during the following summer.
