The Iron's Academy have inducted eight new apprentices ahead of the 2016/17 season.

Adam Kelsey, David Allasan, Sam Lilley, Ewan Train, George Hornshaw, Harvey Ablett, Kane Bartholomew and Kyle Porter will all begin their two-year scholarship with the club when the team returns for pre-season training.

A number of those players have already been involved within the under-18's in the second half of 2015/16, with the youth side fielding a number of 15 and 16-year-olds towards the end of the campaign which saw the side finish second in the league.

Academy Manager Tony Daws said: "We are delighted to be able to offer these eight players two-year scholarships with the football club and look forward to working with them to enhance and develop them during their time with us.

"We saw Noel Burdett and Jack Dyche offered professional deals with the club in recent months and this will be the aim again with the current first years moving into the second year of their apprenticeship, along with these eight players moving into their first year."

Scunthorpe United Football Club would like to wish all those players the best of luck ahead of their apprenticeships, which is inclusive of those players who will be entering their second of two years.
