Harry Bunn joins the Iron

23 July 2021

Scunthorpe United is delighted to have completed the signing of experienced attacker Harry Bunn on a one-year deal.

The 28-year-old has made over 200 senior career appearances and has made his mark at Championship and League One level for the likes of Huddersfield Town, Sheffield United and Bury. 

The versatile forward player started his career as a trainee at Manchester City and enjoyed loan spells at Rochdale, Preston North End, Oldham Athletic, Crewe Alexandra, the Blades and the Terriers before making a permanent move to the latter in 2014.

He spent three-and-a-half-years there, playing almost 100 times, scoring 17 times, and was part of the squad that won promotion to the Premier League in 2017.

He went on to play for the Shakers, appearing 43 times and netting five times before scoring six goals in a 30-game loan spell at Southend United.

Bunn was at York City last season after leaving Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock, with both periods affected by campaigns being curtailed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

He has been on trial with United since the first day of pre-season and also impressed during friendly victories over Barton Town and Burton Albion.

First team manager Neil Cox told iFollow Iron: "Harry has been really brave with the ball. You can tell he's played at a higher level and has confidence in his ability. He works really hard for the team as well, which is what we want, and he's also a great character. That's what we're looking for, not only good players but characters. I think people have taken to him already - the players definitely have. He gives good advice to the younger players and can play in a number of positions.

"He's been in since day one of pre-season, has been at the front of the running and excellent in all regards."

The transfer is subject to EFL ratification.
