Colclough settling well into Iron life

17 August 2018

Summer signing Ryan Colclough has settled well into life at Glanford Park so far, meeting his new teammates and starting his first game for the club.

Speaking about his spell with the Iron up to now, he told iFollow Iron: “I’m really enjoying it. I’ve formed a great relationship with the lads who were all very welcoming and the staff have been the same too. I would say I’m settling in really nicely and I’m definitely enjoying my time here.”

He added: “It’s probably been one of my easiest starts from the four clubs that I’ve been at. I came in and everybody was really welcoming, I got my place in the dressing room and I’ve formed some good relationships out on the pitch.”

The 23-year-old started his first match for the Iron in the 2-1 defeat against Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday in the Carabao Cup, after he came off the bench against Walsall in the league game previous.

Talking about the midweek match, he said: “I enjoyed the game but not the result, which wasn’t the best. I thought we played well. However, we had a few mistakes where we conceded the goals, but we’ve worked on it now to try and rectify them.”

He assessed his own performance, saying: “I’d like to think I did alright, but we can always do better. I’m just looking forward to the game on Sunday now and hopefully we can make up for that cup defeat on Tuesday night.”

Looking ahead to the fixture on Sunday against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, Colclough isn’t fazed by the opposition and is optimistic of coming away with a victory.

He said: “We’re going there and it’s going to be a massive game. They are a big club that will have a lot of fans, but we are going to look to get the three points and nothing less.

“Our main focus is to go and get the job done.”

Colclough added: “It’s a big ground and a massive club, but I think every game in League One is tough so we’ll just take each one as it comes."
