Hurst: Eisa can make things happen

15 August 2019

Manager Paul Hurst was pleased with the capture of Abo Eisa, after the attacker signed a two-year deal from Shrewsbury Town earlier today.

He told iFollow Iron what the latest addition will bring to the Sands Venue Stadium: “He fits how we like to play; a wide player predominantly and can play down the middle as well. He takes players on and he’s quick. He’ll excite the fans.

“He tries to be positive and it won’t always come off but at the same time, he’s the type of player that can make things happen. Hopefully, he can bring some creativity and a few goals himself."

The Iron boss knows the 23-year-old well, having worked with him at former club Shrewsbury Town.

He explained: “He’s a player that I took from non-league that I feel can do very well. I had a really good relationship with him.

“I’ve monitored him closely and worked with him first-hand. When I left the club, I kept an eye on him and looked at the summary footage.”

He concluded: “We’re hoping to give him a platform to kick his career on and establish himself as a professional footballer.”

Giving an update on any more potential incomings, Hurst said not to expect any new faces before the weekend’s clash with Crawley Town.

“There’s a lot of talk about a centre forward which I understand. A lot of the day yesterday was spent looking at options,” he said.
