Reflecting on his first week at Glanford Park, new recruit Craig Davies says the experience has been a nothing but positive one so far.

Davies signed a deal until the end of the season ahead of last weekend’s home fixture with Bury.

He explained it’s been a hectic start to life in North Lincolnshire, but one he’s enjoyed thoroughly.

Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD about joining the club, Davies said: “It’s been good, it’s been a busy few days with the two games, but the boys have made me feel welcome and the management has as well.

“I’ve set a couple of personal targets, and hopefully I can help to bring some experience and do well for the team and the club.”

The Welshman has already featured twice for his new club, in those matches against the Shakers and Oxford United respectively.

Chances came the way of the 31-year-old in that fixture with the U’s and, in spite of what he described as a frustrating night in front of goal, Davies believes the strikes will come.

“I was disappointed not to score on Tuesday, I felt as though I could have had two. Hopefully with games those goals will come,” he declared.

“I’d be more annoyed if I wasn’t getting the chances, but I got two good chances on Tuesday. So hopefully when I’m called upon again, I can get the opportunities and get the goals.”

Establishing himself in a frontline full of attacking talent is a challenge that excites the striker, with him declaring he hopes to bring a different option to what is already is at the club.

“There are some good strikers here already and they’ve been certainly doing their job, given where the team are in the table,” he stated.

“However, I’m looking to bring something else to the team and hopefully I can do that.

“I’m somebody who likes to put myself about, and also I like to get amongst the goals as well.”

The ambition of his new employers was a huge pull factor in his decision to sign on the dotted line.

Davies feels the club is heading in the right direction, and expressed his desire to be a part of that.

“I met up with the manager and he told me what he wanted to do,” he revealed.

“He seemed pretty keen on the team pushing, and I’d seen that Scunthorpe had been doing really well, so I thought It’d be a good opportunity for myself.

“I was pleased with what the manager and what the club were looking to do, so there wasn’t really too much to decide.

“He wants me to bring a little bit of experience and a little bit of something different, which I feel I can do.

“They’ve (Scunthorpe) been in the Championship before, and I think that’s where the club want to get back to.

“I don’t see any reason why that can’t happen this year.”
