First team coach Andy Dawson has departed the club to become Lead Professional Development Phase Coach at Hull City.
The 40-year-old’s first affiliation with the football club came in 1998 when he arrived on loan from Nottingham Forest before making the move permanent three months later.
He went on to spend the next four years with United and played the full 90 minutes as Scunthorpe beat Leyton Orient 1-0 in the Division Three Play-Off final at Wembley in May 1999.
In total, the full-back played 228 games in claret and blue during his first spell before departing for Hull City in May 2003 on a free transfer. He would return a decade later as a player-coach, playing 22 times as the Iron got promoted to League One. He then continued his dual role before taking numerous roles at the club including First Team Coach, Assistant Manager and Interim Manager, along with a role in the Academy as Professional Phase Development Coach.
Dawson is returning to the Tigers, where he was a first team regular during a ten-year stint with the club, helping them gain promotion to the Premier League at the end of the 2007-08 season.
He made a total of 317 appearances for Hull, also earning a testimonial with the club just prior to his Scunthorpe return.
Scunthorpe United would like to place on record their thanks for the hard work, commitment and effort shown by Andy while at the club, and wish him all the best for the future.
