As featured in our matchday programme earlier this season, goalkeeper Rory Watson answers a number of questions sent in over social media and via email.

@ironboy19720, via Twitter: Who’s the goalkeeper you look up to, past or present?
Alisson Becker at Liverpool is a different level. You’d probably put Ederson and ter Stegen in the same bracket because of the way they play out with their feet. They’re my top three.

@danielfirst_df, via Instagram: What is your pre-match routine?
If we’re away and we stay overnight, I like to play PS4 with Levi Sutton, Lewis Butroid and Kevin van Veen. If we’re at home, I go and see my girlfriend and chill out with the dogs. Nothing too strenuous.

@harryshipstone, via Instagram: How hard was it being in and out of the team?
It’s always difficult. When you’re a footballer, all you want to do is play. It’s hard when you get a taste of it and then get brought out. You’ve got to try and work hard to get back in the team and keep your place.

@j.kiltystapleton, via Instagram: When you had your injury, what was the main thing that kept you going, especially due to how serious it was?
Getting back to playing. There was always a light at the end of the tunnel. The physios kept me going and kept my mind focussed on it., via Instagram: How does it feel to play for Scunthorpe?
It’s a good club and a club that means a lot to me. I’m thankful they’ve given me an opportunity. I’m happy here.

Kelly Crimbo McClements, via Facebook: Who are your closest friends in the squad and why?
My roomie is Levi Sutton. I’m really close to Kevin van Veen and Jordan Clarke; people that have been at the club that I’ve known for a long time.

@AndyB, via Twitter: What’s the funniest heckle you’ve ever had from opposition fans?
I get a lot of people telling me to go back to school because I look quite young!
