During last season, Charlie Goode answered questions sent in by fans for our matchday programme...

_ryan_55_, via Instagram, asks: Do you think that you have improved since joining Scunthorpe because of getting playing time?
“Yes, without a doubt. I wasn’t in full-time training when I was in non-league so now having so much time working on my football is helping me massively. Obviously my fitness is a lot better because of it and I feel like I have improved and am getting used to the standard better every single week.”

Chr__istoph, via Instagram, asks: Which player is your best friend in the squad?
CG: “I get on well with everyone in the squad to be honest and it’s hard to pick a ‘best friend’. Scott Laird, Jack King and Tom Hopper were the first players in the squad that I bonded with and I’m still close with all of them now.”

@stefwani, via Twitter, asks: Could you believe it when Scunthorpe came in for you?
CG: “There was a bit of disbelief. I had a couple of calls when I was playing at non-league but when Scunthorpe came in for me I knew it was the best opportunity so I’m glad I picked it and I’ve already had a good number of games and I want to continue to help the team.”

@andyisagooden, via Twitter, asks: Which position do you think is your best?
CG: “I think I’m an out and out centre half now. I haven’t quite got the feet to be in midfield so I think being a centre half suits me the best. I like to attack the ball in the air, winning headers, and that always helps at the back and now I need to focus on improving my ability of the playing the ball out from the back.”

@willod1994, via Twitter, asks: What is the hardest part about being a footballer?
CG: “Getting over defeats is what I find the hardest. It’s also quite difficult when you come off the back of a bad performance or when you are out of the team for a while. But all in all there’s not too much for me to complain about and I’m loving it.”

@pwjavid, via Twitter, asks: Which football team do you support and do you still support them now?
CG: “I’m an Arsenal fan and I still support them. I was really hoping to come up against them in the cup to be honest.”

Elissa Mullin, via Facebook, asks: How well have you fitted in to the squad?
CG: “Ever since I came into the squad the players and staff have been great. I felt welcomed as soon as I came to the club and I’m really grateful for the way I have been treated and that’s a big reason as to why I’m loving my time at Scunthorpe.”

Paul Mullins, via Facebook, asks: Which League One team do you look forward to playing against the most?
“Every game you look forward to and it’s hard to pick one out because to me they are all equally important to me.”

Nicola Brooks, via Facebook, asks: What is the best goal you have ever seen?
CG: “As an Arsenal fan I think I probably have to go with the Thierry Henry one against Manchester United. It was the one when he had his back to goal and took a touch to set himself up for the volley and turned to hit it into the top corner.”

Jordan Howell, via Facebook, asks: Which team mate is the most skilful?
“It has to be Hakeeb Adelakun. I’ve never come up against a player with as quick feet as he has got and he has got past me a few times in training with those feet. Kevin van Veen isn’t too far behind to be fair but I think I have to go with Hakeeb.”
