"As a goalkeeper, you always need to be ready"

30 August 2018

New loan signing Jak Alnwick cannot wait to get started after completing a loan switch to the Iron.

 
The goalkeeper joined United from Scottish giants Rangers and hopes to help the club climb up the table.
 
"I'm delighted to be here. It is a chance to come here and push to play some games," the 25-year-old told iFollow Iron.
 
Alnwick continued: "I think it is a brilliant club and we want to get it back to where it should be. We're trying to kick on this season."
 
The former Newcastle United player admitted that he hasn't played as much as he would have liked to recently, but sees this as the perfect opportunity. 

 
He said: "I had a good run of games at Port Vale and then went to Rangers. Over the last year-and-a-half, I haven't played that much, so now it is important to kick on.
 
"As a goalkeeper, you always need to be ready whether you are playing or not because it can only take one injury or one red card, then you are playing. 
 
"Goalkeepers are always match-ready and I will be sharp come the weekend."
 
Alnwick joins the club in the same week that the Iron appointed new manager Stuart McCall, and Alnwick added: "I have heard good things about the new gaffer, it is a chance to work with him and I can't wait to get started."
 
He then recalled on his past experiences of playing against Scunthorpe at Glanford Park.
 
"I remember coming here and it is has always been a tough place to come to. I think my last game for Port Vale was here," he added.
 
"The atmosphere is brilliant, they always have a good team with a lot of technical players and have big lads up front."
