Spence speaks about his Iron stay so far

19 August 2020

Recent arrival Lewis Spence has spoken about how he's settled into the group during his first two-and-a-half weeks with the club.

The Scottish midfielder, who signed on a free transfer right at the start of the return for pre-season training, played his first 45 minutes for the club during the behind-closed-doors friendly against Doncaster Rovers on Saturday.

The 24-year-old told iFollow Iron: "I feel good and like I'm getting there. It's been quite tough as it was a long period away from it with lockdown, but it's just good to get back on the training field.

"It's been good to settle in with the lads and get that first 45 minutes against Doncaster as well. It was my first football in a long time but I really enjoyed it and the lads did well.

"The first week it had to be done with social distancing so it was a little bit weird but everyone was grateful just to be back on the training ground.

"I've met all the lads now and they're all good and have made me feel really welcome. I'm living in Doncaster, where a lot of them are, and have been made to feel welcome. Though it's still early days, I'm enjoying it so far.

"I'm looking forward to getting fitter, sharper and for the league to get started on September 12th, with the Port Vale Carabao Cup game the week before it."

New first team manager Neil Cox arrived at the end of Spence's first week and talking about the boss, the midfielder continued: "He's brought a positive energy around the team and wants us to work hard and enjoy our time here, and have a good season."
