The 23-year-old left-back, a free agent, has put pen to paper on a two-year deal and becomes Iron manager Alan Knill's third signing of the summer.

Kennedy told Scunthorpe's official website: "It's a good feeling and now I've signed I'm looking forward to the season starting. It's been in the pipeline for a couple of weeks, so we've not been waiting a massive amount of time, but it's good to just get it sorted.

"When I heard that Scunthorpe were interested I was as well. My agent let me know Scunthorpe were interested. I met the manager and he sold it to me basically.

"He told me about the football he wants to play and also about the aims and ambitions of the club and himself. It just felt right. That's the main thing for me. I need to get as many games as I can. I want to be playing football and that was a big factor in me coming."

Kennedy, who started out as a trainee at the County Ground, made 23 appearances for Paolo Di Canio's side last season, scoring one goal. He has also had loan spells at Gillingham and Rotherham.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
