Eight new scholars inducted for 2017-18

15 May 2017

The Iron's Academy have inducted eight new apprentices ahead of the 2017/18 season.

Sam Riches, Joe Busby, Jack Harrison, Tom Pugh, Liam Colclough, Cameron Morfoot, Miracle Okafor and James Kalu 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 2016/17, with the youth side fielding a number of 15 and 16-year-olds towards the end of the campaign.
 
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 last season, while Lewis Butroid and Adam Kelsey have both signed deals during 2016/17 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.
