Scunthorpe player-coach Andy Dawson is hoping to pass on his experience to the Glamford Park youngsters as the Iron prepare for life in League Two.

Left-back Dawson, 34, was persuaded by Scunthorpe boss Brian Laws to return to the club after a decade at Hull. He considered taking up a coaching role with the Tigers, but opted to come back to the Iron.

Dawson told Scunthorpe's official website: "I know the manager really well. It is a good opportunity

"It is part of a learning curve for me and I want to progress as a coach.

"There are a lot of young lads and they have a very good attitude and they always want to learn and that is all I have ever done as a player."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
