Nick Daws has stated that new-signing Dominic Vose has already looked bright in training following his first full day with the Iron.
The former West Ham United trainee arrived at Glanford Park with the transfer deadline looming, signing a two-and-a-half-year deal from National League side Wrexham for an undisclosed fee.
“Dominic trained for the first time with us on Tuesday,” Daws told The Iron PlayerHD.
“I’ve got to say, he’s trained with us really well. I met him on Tuesday morning for the first time and had exchanged texts with him on Monday evening. Andy (Dawson) spoke to him on Monday evening when he came in.
“He’s been part of our recruitment process and he’s been on our radar for quite a while. He’s very highly thought of in the National League and I know a number of teams at that level and at league level that have looked and have been involved in trying to get him to them.
“I’ve had information from three or four people I know within the game at all levels of the game that have said he’s a good recruit for us.”
Vose arrives following spells in non-league with Braintree, Barnet, Welling and Wrexham while also enjoying just over a year with League One rivals Colchester United.
“He’s a forward-thinking player who can play wide or in behind and has been playing in the number nine role for Wrexham so far this season,” the joint caretaker manager continued.
“He’s scored ten goals in twenty-eight appearances for them this season. He’ll give us another attacking threat anywhere in those front four positions.
“He’ll be a real asset to the club, not only short-term, but I’m sure in the long-term as well.”
His versatility will prove to be another asset to the team – something which Daws also highlighted.
“We’ve got a number of versatile players already,” he said.
“Andy and myself have got a clear idea of how we want to utilise the likes of Gary McSheffrey, Dominic Vose, Luke Williams and Hakeeb Adelakun. To have flexibility in your front players is an ideal situation for us really.”
Daws also spoke briefly about the departure of Dutchman Kevin van Veen, who left on loan until the end of the season; returning to native Holland.
“Kev goes with our best wishes and we’re disappointed for him that it hasn’t worked out for him in his first twelve months with us,” he stated.
“This is a great opportunity for him to go and be in more familiar surroundings, get his confidence back, score goals and the last thing I said to him was that I hope he finishes the season well with SC Cambuur and come back to us in pre-season like a new signing.”
