Carver talks about his Iron move

2 August 2022

Striker Marcus Carver can't wait to make a potential debut for the Iron against Yeovil Town on Saturday.

The forward joined from Hartlepool United on Tuesday to become the club's eighth signing of the summer and he's raring to go in claret and blue.

The 28-year-old told Iron Player: "I've heard about the move for the past couple of weeks and I'm happy to get it over the line now, and am just looking forward to getting started."

Describing himself as a player, he said: "I'm just a hard worker who likes to put myself about and get myself in the box. Hopefully I can get a few goals for the club.

"The aim is to bounce back into the EFL. I understand the gaffer has a good team here now and it'll take some time for me to break into it, but I'm just looking to work hard and fight for my chances."

He becomes the second player to sign from Hartlepool in the space of a week, joining right-back Reagan Ogle. 

He said: "Reags has signed too and is another lad who needs game time. He's a good, athletic lad and I wish him the best here as well. Hopefully we can both do the best job for Scunthorpe we can."

Having spent the majority of his career in non-league, Carver knows all about the physicality of the National League.

He continued: "Just playing games is what you need. I've always said to any young professional breaking through that playing games is the main thing. I've played a lot in the National League North and had a season in the 'Conference'. I'm hoping to bounce back with Scunthorpe this season."
