Seven new scholars inducted for 2018-19

23 May 2018

The Iron's Academy have inducted seven new apprentices ahead of the 2018-19 season.

Finley Shrimpton, Luca Chadli, Tom Collins, Charlie Barks, Harry Jessop, Aidan Train and Levi Gallimore (not pictured) 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 2017/18, 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 seven 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’ve seen George Hornshaw join Adam Kelsey in being offered their first professional contracts from the second-year apprentices graduating last season, while Lewis Butroid was rewarded with a contract the season before. This will be the aim again with the current first years moving into the second year of their apprenticeship, along with these seven 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.
