Charlie Goode, who signed for the Iron earlier in the week, will be missed at Hendon - according to his former manager Gary McCann.
The centre-half made the switch to Scunthorpe after United fended off competition from numerous other league clubs, with Charlie signing a two-year deal with a further 12 months option in the club's favour.
Speaking to David Ballheimer, the Press Officer of Hendon Football Club, he said: “As disappointed as we are to lose him, we are delighted for Charlie. It is great that he has left us and gone straight into the Football League, rather than staying in Non-League and I am not surprised that a League One club has signed him on a two-year deal.
“I’m confident that he will settle quickly and I am also sure he will progress further.
“We knew that Charlie was a great talent even before we signed him and the minute he walked through the door you could see he was destined for bigger things.
“He’s been an absolute credit to himself. His performances have belied his age, and he thoroughly deserved the honour of being selected for the England C (Non-League) team earlier this week.
“He is a top lad and a top player, and his progression is a fitting tribute to his performances and great recognition for all involved at Hendon Football Club.”
Charlie was the Iron's fifth summer signing, joining Stephen Dawson, Scott Wiseman, Jack King and Isaac Assenso, while Scott Laird became United's sixth summer signing a day after his arrival.
