Scunthorpe United announced former Mansfield Town attacking midfielder Jason Law as the club’s eighth summer signing on a two-year deal, effective from July 1st, 2023.

The 24-year-old leaves the Stags, where he’s been for the past eight seasons, after joining the club’s academy from Carlton Town midway through the 2015-16 campaign.

Law appeared regularly for the Under-18s as the side won the league and he was rewarded with an appearance on the bench in that season in their 1-0 defeat to Leyton Orient, just four days after his 17th birthday.

The Stags would retain their Youth Alliance titles in 2016-17 and 2017-18, with Law a regular in the team across his scholarship years. He would also have work experience loans at Sutton Coldfield Town, Gresley and Hednesford Town during those years. His performances would see him promoted to the first team squad in the 2018-19 season, ironically making his debut for Mansfield against the Iron in the Checkatrade Trophy in November 2018.

The midfielder signed on professional terms in 2019, making one appearance for the side in 2019-20 in a 1-1 draw with Everton Under-21s in the EFL Trophy. There would also be further loans to Leek Town and Kettering Town.

His first appearance of 2020-21 would again be against the Iron in the same competition, this time at Glanford Park, with his first professional goal amongst 18 appearances coming in March 2021 in a 2-2 draw against Grimsby Town.

Last season, he would feature 24 times in total for the Stags in all competitions, making a total of 54 appearances for the side across his time there.

Speaking after joining the club, he said: "I'm delighted to be here and I'm looking forward to getting going. I spoke to the gaffer the other day and I've seen all of the other lads that have signed, so I'm really looking forward to coming in for this season.

"I've had a good eight years with Mansfield and came through when I was 16. I've really enjoyed my time there, but I'm looking forward to this challenge as well. I think it should be a successful season.

"I'm an attacking midfielder, I can also play on the wing. I'm pretty versatile, left-footed, good on the ball and I like to get on the ball and make things happen.

"I've had a few loan spells, including in this league, so I know quite a bit about it. It's a tough league, but it's definitely one with the right group of players and the gaffer, there's a chance to be really successful and have a big year.
