New manager Paul Hurst wants to bring ‘that winning feeling’ back to Scunthorpe.

The Iron suffered relegation to Sky Bet League Two at the end of the season and have turned to 44-year-old Hurst to get them moving back in the right direction.

The former Grimsby, Shrewsbury and Ipswich boss is looking forward to the challenge, and said: ‘I’m excited to be back in work and at a football club I feel I can take forward and where I hope we can have some good times.

‘Conversations had taken place and I’m happy it has now been finalised.

I got the call from the chairman, we had a chat and I liked what he was saying.

‘I feel as though this is a good fit for me.

I know a few people at the club already, the likes of Lee Turnbull (head of recruitment) and Russ Wilcox (under-23 manager), so they will help me settle in.

‘I hope to build a lot of good relationships with the people here because we are all in this together.

‘It’s been a difficult last season for the club, but I hope we can make everyone happy again and bring some of that winning feeling back.’
