Club captain Clarke can't wait for the new season

4 August 2020

Club captain Jordan Clarke can't wait to lead the Iron into the new League Two season, after re-signing for the club on Monday.

The 28-year-old penned a one-year contract as the players returned for pre-season training, and told iFollow Iron: "It's been in the pipeline for a few weeks now. I've been back and forth with the chairman and club secretary, and I'm really excited about it.

"I've been here since 2015 and like a lot of people it was up in the air about what I do next, but I was so pleased this chairman and the club put faith in me, and I've been given the chance. I'm delighted to be back.

"I'm really excited about being club captain. I love the fact it's on my shoulders and I like the feeling of being a leader, and feel I can be a really good one to the players we have here."

After five months without football for all the squad, Clarke was excited to be getting back on the training ground on Monday.

He said: "It's been tough for me because we've been training on our own, wherever we could - whether that's on the road or local parks. I had the birth of my baby daughter six weeks ago and she's been keeping me busy. I feel in really good shape and can't wait for it.

"The new season can't come quick enough for the players, staff and the fans. Hopefully things get better and the fans can come back in sooner rather than later because there is nothing better than playing in front of supporters, cheering you on.

"The aim is to be successful as a team and give the fans something to smile about again."
