After putting pen to paper on a loan extension until the end of the campaign, Harry Toffolo says he’s elated to have got everything tied up.

The Norwich loanee has impressed in his half a season with the club, and the 21-year-old stated there was no doubt in his mind about staying at Glanford Park.

Speaking about his loan extension to The Iron PlayerHD, Toffolo said: “To get it all done is brilliant, because now my family can all move back up here and we can get back settled.

“It’s not a nice drive to Norwich. It’s a long three hour journey, so to get it all done and sorted is great, and I can crack on with the football now.

“I’m learning so much. The lads are great. They and the management are the main reason why I wanted to come back.

“The fans are fantastic as well, they’ve been brilliant with me on social media and in person as well.

“Why wouldn’t you want to be at a club like this? It’s going places and it’s a fantastic place to be.”

Toffolo capped the deal with a goal, as the Iron marched to a 3-2 home victory over Bury on Saturday.

It was the full back’s first for the club and, despite there being a slight deflection on the strike, Toffolo was adamant the goal was his.

“I’m claiming that all day,” he stated.

“I’ve been telling the lads that it was a 30-yard screamer, but it’s good for me.  A few of them were telling me it was an own-goal, but I’m not having that, it’s mine.

“It’s good to get a goal, it’s good to chip in and to get the three points for the team was massive.”

Assessing that win against the Shakers, the defender feels there’s room for improvement - after not kicking on in the second period.

“I thought the first half we were very good, in the second we could have done better,” Toffolo declared.

“In the first half we were exceptionally happy, we were in total control. We let them get back into the game in the second half.

“We had to dig deep in a game which we maybe didn’t need to, going by the first half.”

The three points from Toffolo’s point of view though sets he and his team-mates up well for the week ahead, with fixtures at Oxford United and Northampton Town on the horizon.

He believes everyone will take confidence from the victory, going into what he described as a “tough” test at the Sixfields Stadium on Saturday.

“You’re always confident after three points,” he explained.

“We’ve got a very good first half to go off, and we’ve got bits to work on, which is good, because you don’t get complacent.

“It’s really good to be positive, and to have three points going into another tough game at Northampton is huge.”
