IN REVIEW: MAY/JUNE 2015

16 May 2016

Over the next two weeks, we will be looking at each month of the 2015/16 season, beginning with a busy close season for the Iron...

The dust had barely settled from the 2014/15 campaign when the Iron got to work reshaping their squad ahead of the new campaign.

The retained list, announced on May 5, detailed seven players would be leaving the club (Sam Slocombe, James Severn, Marcus Williams, Miguel Llera, Eddie Nolan, Callum Howe and Matt Sparrow).

The club would wait just fifteen days for the first new face through the door though...

THE INS...

Stephen Dawson - free transfer from Rochdale (May 20, 2015)
Jack King - free transfer from Preston North End (May 26, 2015)
Scott Wiseman - free transfer from Preston North End (May 28, 2015)
Isaac Assenso - free transfer from Leeds United (June 4, 2015)
Charlie Goode - free transfer from Hendon (June 10, 2015)
Scott Laird - free transfer from Preston North End (June 11, 2015)
Tom Hopper - unattached (June 26, 2015)


FIRST THROUGH THE DOOR: Stephen Dawson became United's first new acquisition of the summer, with six more to follow in June.

NEW DEALS SIGNED...

Goalkeeper Joe Anyon extended his stay with the Iron a further two years following his short-term deal in early May, while midfielder Levi Sutton penned his first professional contract on June 2, after impressive performances for the development and youth sides over the course of his two-year scholarship.

Gary McSheffrey also extended his stay with the club for a further year after being offered a new deal, signing on June 29.

THE OUTS...

Jennison Myrie-Williams was one under contract player to depart the Iron in the summer after agreeing to have his contract cancelled by mutual consent, while Billy Kee departed Glanford Park in the same manner.

Chief Scout and Chief Executive of the SUFC Trust also headed out the building to Sheffield United to link forces with Nigel Adkins and Andy Crosby.
