As featured in our matchday programme earlier this season, Conor Townsend answers a selection questions sent in by supporters.

Earlier in the season, we asked you to pose yours via social media and by emailing the club. Here are his answers.

deji_witty_banter, via Instagram:What did it feel like having an assist on your debut?
I was delighted to get an assist. Providing for the team is a big part of my game and to play a big role in my first game was brilliant.

kerrycoulson, via Instagram: How does it feel to be back at Scunthorpe United?
I’m really happy now that I’ve got my future sorted, signed and sealed! I’m looking forward to knuckling down, working hard and getting the team climbing the table.

Christoph_holme, via Instagram:Which games are you looking forward to most this season?
I’m just looking forward to playing in every game to be honest. Hopefully I can string a few games together and put some good performances in.

Ben Mayes, via email: What’s the best advice you could give to someone wanting to start a career in football?
Working hard is the key. If you trust in your ability and listen to all the advice you are given then if you are good enough you will make it.

Jack Brough, via email: Which of your team mates has the worst dress sense?
I haven’t seen too much bad clobber around the training ground at all to be honest so I won’t single anyone out!

Matt Brutnell, via email: Who did you support growing up and do you still support them?
I supported Hull because I’m from there and grew up playing for them. I’ve always made sure that I keep a look out for their results and I probably still will.

Tim Simon, via email: What are your personal ambitions for this season?
I want to try and play as many games as possible and keep my performances at a good level.

Luke Suthers, via email: Who is the most skilful player at Scunthorpe?
I think I’ll have to go with Hakeeb Adelakun. Some of the tricks he pulls out in training are incredible.

Lewis Martin, via email: What’s the hardest part about being a left back?
Probably the physicality. It is quite a demanding position because you’re expected to constantly get up and down the pitch.

Mark Swires, via email: In your time at Scunthorpe, who have you got to know the best?
Towards the back end of last season I spent a lot of time with Joe Anyon and we get on well so I’ll probably say Joe.

Andy Gooden, via email: If you weren’t a footballer what job would you have?
I’m not too sure but I’d probably end up being either a builder or electrician.

Mitch Gregson, via email: What is your favourite meal to eat before a match?
I always have chicken pasta before every match!

Robert James, via email: Which player in the Scunthorpe squad would be the most fun to go on holiday with?
It’s really hard to pick single players out because there’s quite a few. I think the Irish lads are probably a good laugh so I’ll go with Paddy Madden and Stephen Dawson.
