“The manager is a plus for me coming here because I’ve worked with him at Huddersfield and he was a good man to work with. There’s also a good bunch of lads with the competition here and I can see the quality in the players. That competition will keep me on my toes as I look to get in the team. I just can’t wait to get going now.”

Grayson too said that he is looking forward to working with Scannell again and is happy to bring in a player with experience at both League One and Championship level.

“Sean is a player I’ve worked with before and he has plenty of experience at this level and above. He can play in a number of attacking positions and is another exciting addition to the squad.”

Scannell started his career in the youth academy at Crystal Palace and has played for Huddersfield Town, Burton Albion and Bradford City since.
