Levi Sutton was delighted that hard work paid off to see him offered a new contract, which he signed last week.The midfielder has endured a difficult season which saw him break his leg just days after being offered his first professional deal, but has evidently come back stronger and impressed, earning a new one-year contract with a further year in the club's favour.
"I'm delighted to sign a new deal with the club," he told The Iron PlayerHD.
"It's been a difficult season for me really with breaking my leg last year. After going through all my rehab and that side of things, I've managed to get back and I now feel fresh and fit."
Sutton made his first professional debut coming on as an 88th minute substitute for Luke Williams in the Iron's 6-0 home victory over Swindon Town on Easter Monday.
His appearance included five minutes of stoppage time and he impressed Iron supporters in the short spell on the Glanford Park surface and almost getting involved in a seventh goal right at the death.
"Hopefully the manager has seen what I have to offer in recent weeks," he continued.
"He gave me my first professional debut and I feel like I'm starting to get stronger and my football is getting better.
"It's been a long time coming really, but now I've got one appearance, I've got to focus on progressing and getting more.
"Next season, I want to play more football as it has been a difficult one with the injury. Next season, I have to stay injury free and hopefully the games will come.
"The new manager coming in has been like a breath of fresh air for everybody really, especially for me. He's given me the confidence in myself to play and with him giving me my debut, I feel as though I can push on now.
"He made his debut here and went onto have a long and successful career and hopefully I can do that."
