Dewhurst looks to continue progress with his Iron loan

12 July 2022

Goalkeeper Marcus Dewhurst has spoken about completing his season-long loan signing for the Iron from Sheffield United.

The 21-year-old joins following a successful trial and will be looking to build on over 40 games of experience for Guiseley and 35 for last season's play-off finalists Boston United respectively in the National League North.

Dewhurst told Iron Player: "I've really enjoyed working with the gaffer and all the staff. I felt it was a no brainer when they gave me the chance to come and play here. I'm really excited for the season and for Saturday (facing parent club Sheffield United in a friendly at Glanford Park) as well."

Talking about the conversations he's had with first team manager Keith Hill, the shotstopper continued: "He's told me to be a character, be brave and the main thing I want from this is just to enjoy it, play well and get as far up the table as we can.

"It was nice to play well (in the Leeds Under-23s friendly where he kept a clean sheet) and show what I can do. I was happy to make some saves but the most important thing was the clean sheet and the win. It was nice to get out and get 90 minutes again."

The goalkeeper is the son of former Iron defender Rob Dewhurst, who made one appearances for the club during the 2000-01 season.

Dewhurst junior added: "He used to play alongside the gaffer when we was at Blackburn too, and I think he played one game for Scunthorpe and got sent off!

"I just want to help us get as high up the table as possible, keep clean sheets, win games and play well.

"I think I showed what I could last season (at Boston) and this is the right next move to get going again."
